Can't get rid of this symptom.

Posted , 6 users are following.

I got rid of all my anxiety symptoms but the one I keep having is shortness of breathe. Feeling like I can't breathe properly and everytime I talk it feels like it's taking too much of my air. It's scary

      No just the fact that it only happens when I have really bad anxiety. I pay attention to when my symptoms happen. Whenever I'm busy, distracted and without anxiety my chest is totally normal. Then when I start thinking about it and getting anxious my chest gets sore and tight again.

      Yep that's exactly what I did. And of course, I made it happen. It's really horrible, I know. But you will learn to tell yourself, hey it's just anxiety and I'm making myself do this.
