    Is this a sign of stress? Because if it is...it's scaring me.

    This isn't the first time this happened. I've already went to the doctors with this problem back in my teen years and all they can associate this on is stress and/or acid reflux. I may suspect that this time, it's caused by stress. I've been under an intense amount of stress. I haven't slept properly for weeks thinking about a lot of things that stress me out. My heart is always pounding and palpitating and my chest is tightening. I always yawn to catch a deep breath and I do so for like 5 times in succession. My shortness of breath improves when either I'm relaxed or moving and even after a workout.
    I sometimes get a deep, satisfying breath every once in a while I attempt a deep breath or yawn.

    I also heard about pseudo-dyspnea whatever that is.

    What do I do?

    Anytime I read about breathing issues I think of either allergic asthma and/or chemically sensitive asthma. Have you ever been tested for asthma. Asthma symptoms vary, from asthma attacks where the patient has great difficulty breathing; to mild asthma where the patient feels some tightness in his chest and mild issues with breathing.

    The same allergens/chemicals that can cause an asthmatic reaction can also cause the heart to misfire and pound and palpitate; and also cause anxiety.

    How is the air quality in your town? How about the air quality in your apartment? Do you have pets?

    Well...I had tests done when I was a kid for when I had trouble breathing, all normal, but I was put under a nebulizer for a while to help me breathe. Doctor's always say it's because of anxiety so I believed them. We have poor air flow here in our house since my sis likes to keep the doors and windows closed. And yes, we have four dogs.
