Re: Does anybody else get the shorness of breath?
I get that from time to time. It feels like I can't take a full breath, or I can't get to "the top of my lungs" (that sounds ***arre), anyhow, that's the best way I can describe it. It could be due to hyperventilation (not all hyperventilation is dramatic, much of it is low level and just makes you feel bad without making you go all numb and dizzy) or it could be due to muscle tension around your neck/chest/upper body. Hunching over, being stressed, all those things make it harder for anyone to take a deep breath. I know how you feel and it sucks, but at least rest assured that you've been checked out and things look good. I would suggest purchasing or at least going to the library or bookstore and browsing through some anxiety books and looking how many have passages about "shortness of breath". It's a panic/anxiety symptom that it very common. Take care and I'm glad to read that your test came back fine!
