fibro and breathing panic attacks

hi all..

had fibro for 4 years.In that time i have had some major remissions too.
right now been in a bad flare..not so much muscle ache as extreme fatigue.when my fibro started out it used to be chronic muscle its like things have sort of reversed.

as of late i always have this feeling that im not getting enough air..even though pulse is normal and heart according to doc is sounding fine.

along with this i have strong anxiety and am having panic attacks, especially in the mornings when i awake. I just seem to be concentrating so much on my breathing..and that only seems to make things worse.

the odd thing is that once i pop a relaxant, i have been prescribed afew, xanor being one. That then this seems to pass and i seem to be able to breath ok. I would think if it was something more severe a relaxant would not help.

So i guess right now i dont know if alot of this is just anxiety or if i really am short of breath. Just very mind boggling.I have been very weak as of late and sleeping horribly.

I cant think of anything worse than feeling you cant breath. It just seriously seems like anxiety can make things so so much worse.Somehow i think a person is afraid that they will have another panic attack.

Oh well if anyone has anything sensible on this matter please do comment..cheers!
