I feel like i lose my breath for a second.

Here lately i have been feeling like something just sucks the wind out of me. afterwards i dont gasp for breath or anything it only lasts for a second. It is kind of scary because my number one fear is my heart and i always think it is heart related, even though i have had all of the tests done. I just would like to know if anyone else gets this quick feeling of losing your breath. i have been studying it and it seems to happen alt when something unexpected happens like earlier i was holding a pill in my hand and the principle walked by and it happened at that moment so i am thinking it is anxiety related. please reply and tell me what you think. Thanks, matt.

I get that, I got it today when I was in the car. I was looking at my eye in the mirror because it looks bloodshot and I feel like maybe I forgot to breathe or something and my heart skipped and then raced for a second like I was going into a panic attack and couldnt breathe. So scary.

Re: I feel like i lose my breath for a second.

That is exactly what I experience. It will happen and then I am focusing on my breathing and then I become afraid that if I am not focusing on it that I will stop breathing. I got so worked up one time that I had to go to the ER. I had already done enough damage to my body by going on a weekend bender, so when the panic attack set in it was even worse. My body was telling me I needed to sleep, but I was afraid that if I fell asleep I would stop breathing and die. Once I got to the ER I immediately relaxed and fell asleep. I guess I figured if I stopped breathing that professionals would be there to help me so I relaxed.
