"catch" when I inhale! What on earth...


For the last few weeks I have been experiencing a random "catch" type of thing when I inhale. It only happens a few times a day usually, and totally randomly. It's as if my airway closes for a split second when I breath in either through my mouth or nose.

I'm completely baffled as to what this could be, but obviously I'm concerned (I wouldn't want it to get worse)

any ideas?

Are you meaning it's like "sticky"? or that you take like a second breath a bit stronger then the initial one, but a split second after?

The sticky one could be dry airway caused by various reasons.

The second catch or breath could be caused by anxious/depressive mood.

It's all a matter of perspective!
