Throat / Breathing...


Yesterday, my friend was just fooling around and he tried to scare me. The problem is that I was so into the work I was doing that I actually lost the ability to breathe for a few moments. It started to feel like I was going to choke. The scare was so great that my heart was racing... not one of those "light" scares.

Now my breath seems to be very shallow and constricted, yet no "real constriction" exists. I don't feel deprived of oxygen nor am I hyperventilating. When I breathe or swallow it feels like a lump in the throat. It feels very tight in the throat all the time.

I forgive him as he was just fooling around.. he didn't think he could hurt me like that.

Any ideas what it could be? I tried a pain reliever to see if has any effect.. so I'm waiting on that.

Thank you.

Re: Throat / Breathing...

Sounds very much to me like you had a panic attack. Perhaps subconciously you are still remembering the event and/or are subconciously telling yourself you are having trouble breathing. Good luck and hopefully it will go away. If it doesn't keep mental tabs on your symptoms and dont go searching around on the internet about your symptoms, that's my advice. There's a lot of incorrect information out there and you could also just end up scaring yourself.
