I have the same issues. I have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks since I was 15 and now I am 34. About 6 months ago they became huge. I was having 2 maybe 3 a day. The relief that i felt when they were over was like winning the lottery me. The doctor put me on meds for the attacks and they have some what subsided. He checked my lungs and they were clear. My blood work was fine but I got into the habit of deep breathing and yawning. I was concerned that I had a problem with my lungs, that I might have COPD and that one day my lungs are just going to give out.. this is a scary thing because even though people say it's nothing to worry about the brain takes over and goes into protective mode causing anxiety and worry. To read your story's and symptoms gives me a sense of calm. I wonder if this will go away on its own or is it a permanent fixture now?!!
