anyone have Anything like I do?

I was told by the doctor I had anxiety. I have had breathing problems with it
for the last 6 months from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed. The feeling of not getting a full breath every 1/3 of the breaths I take. I feel when I run it makes it better but anything else you have done to help? Or anyone have anything similar to this. I still have to see a psychiatrist about it.

I get short of breath a lot too. Air hunger. What works best for me is a fan in my face. Also showers and calming tea. This is a common anxiety symptom. I hope you find some relief, I know it sucks horribly.

Re: anyone have Anything like I do?

I had the same symptoms and when I visited the psychiatrist I was put on Lexapro 10 mg, Seroquel 50 mg and Klonopin 1mg twice a day. That combination helped me reduce my anxiety and eliminated the maddening shortness of breath.

As with any medication be sure to ask about the side effects which could be severe especially with the benzodiazepine drugs (Klonopin) and the Atypical antipsychotics (Seroquel). Also remember that benzodiazepine should only be use for short term treatment of anxiety unless it is absolutely necessary.
