I get breathless to the point of gasping which slowly gets worse and fight for each breath; I seem to get air in but not out. On this one occasion it got so bad my hands and feet were curled and I felt like I couldn't go on. My body just kept this losing cycle of gasping and getting weaker [and trying to relax wasn't having any effect] but my brain said 'hey, you gotta try something differet and quick' so with an almighty effort I breathed as much as I could in thru my nose and as slow as possible out thru my nose. this first in & out didn't do a whole lot but I kept at it fighting the gasping reflex and gradually taking in & out more air thru nose each time a little more. After 5 breaths I felt myself relaxing and this brought me back. Whew! it was a real effort though.
Hope this might help others. But be clear it was a real effort.
