Hi parrothead...I like your name...I'm a parrothead too :)

Yes, I agree with V dubgurl, anxiety can come out of the blue. As long as you've been thoroughly checked for all illnesses that could compromise your breathing, I'd say anxiety could be the culprit. Most of us anxiety sufferers don't breathe properly (too shallowly) and we need to learn how to take deep, diaphragmatic breaths, in and out evenly. This is one of the ways we can help ourselves...there are other tricks you can learn by reading self-help books on anxiety and panic. Antianxiety medication might help also...I take Xanax as needed. Others have success with antidepressants. Good luck...keep us posted.
