Question Difficulty yawning/deep breath?

For the last year, every minute i feel the need to take a deep breath or a yawn with no satisfaction,i dont feel the air go dawn into my lungs.Even when i try to yawn I can not ,I stop in the middle of the yawn.
When successful take a deep breath or a yawn i feel satisfaction for 30 seconds then the sensation return.
Another symptoms:tingling in fingers,around the mouth and feet(when breathing is realy bad),dizziness(when breathing is realy bad).
Tests:3 xray,spirometry,electrocardiogram,echoca rdiography,oxygen saturation 100%,blood tests. ALL TEST ARE GOOD no abnormalities.
-no correlation with exercise
-all started six months after death of my father
-is a constant thing ,from the moment I wake until I go to sleep

The doctors say anxiety and stress ,but the sensations is very real,I am confused.
Is this anxiety or something else?

Re: Difficulty yawning/deep breath?

Since all your tests were normal I would say it is anxiety. I have COPD but had what you describe long before the COPE. Howevever, I have had anxiety and panic attacks most of my life. Are you on any anxiety medication?
