    Yawning/sighing constantly shortness of breath help!

    I have the yawning and sighing constantly problem. as tho im struggling to get enough air into my lungs to feel a deep satisfying breath. At times i can get the breath's more easily and at times its a struggle.

    I just did a methacholine challange test and was diagnosed with asthmatic lungs.
    I am upset because i don't feel my medications i got for asthma are helping my frequent sighing and yawning and i have no idea how to tell when to take the asthma medications, or if i have two seperate conditions, or if I don't have asthma, or if I do and this is just part of it and I am not on the right medications... AUGHHHH! When I exercise I get very short of breath and the inhaler seems to help THAT but not my yawning and sighing issue.

    Someone please help me I don't know wat to do. I was relieved when I was diagnosed with something other than anxiety finally but I am feeling worried that maybe its still not the answer.

    You may have asthma and the doctors are probalbly right about that but you said yawning? Are you very tired? do you feel that you may not be sleeping fully? You may be yawning becaus3e you are tired but it could be that when you think you are asleep you may not be at all! There is a breathing and sleeping disorder called sleep apnia. While you are asleep you stop breathing for a few minutes and your body wakes itself up out of rem sleep but not out of sleep literally. This can damage your vital organs such as your heart and lungs! If you have this there is treatment. Many people have this disorder and are unaware look it up on the web and see if this could be of any help to you! Don't dismiss this before you check it out!

    I also have a problem with yawning and sighing. It started about 2 months ago-seems that I can never get a really good breath. Wierd thing is that it goes away during sleep! My Dr. says it is anxiety related and prescribed .25 mg xanax as needed. It only seems to help a little. Does anyone else have this problem? I have had blood tests, an EKG, stress test, chest x-ray and pulmonary function tests and all came back normal!
