I know that anxiety can cause major breathing issues, but I was wondering what everyone else experiences were. On and off, for several months now, I feel like I have trouble breathing for a few days. I go through periods where I keep yawning, trying to get a deep breath. I have to keep sighing, too. The more I think about it, the worse it gets. Just thinking about it makes me start yawning!!! I started yawning non-stop while shopping at Target yesterday and it really freaked me out!!
Now, I do get out of breath walking up stairs, too. I am not overweight, but I am out of shape. But of course I am thinking I have asthma or cancer or something. I swear, it really feels like I am suffocating sometimes, and I keep sighing and yawning to get air in! Does anyone else do this? I start doing this even when I don't feel very anxious. Then again, maybe I live in a constant state of anxiety and panic, though.
Any thoughts of this? Wondering if I should go to the dreaded doctor or not. I know that I get breathing issues when I am stressed, though. Right before a job interview, I have noticed that I hold my breath, so I am out of breath by the time I start interviewing. That is so not good! Help. Thanks, everyone! Hope you are having a good weekend.
