I have a lot of breathing trouble even without a panic attack

Sometimes last all day sometimes a couple of diffrent breathing problems that happen randomly throughout the day .

In October my heart went crazy I did not feel right and hospital and doctors all was worried but then could not find amy thing as these episodes would last anywhere between 10-6 hours .

A holter and heart us later I'm told it's fine it's anxiety .

Then end October I being to have breathing problems from there it was a nightmare in January they calms Dow but I still have it now and again .

worse feeling so far is a gag feeling in my mouth like under my tounge crazy I know that I don't actually gag but while this is happening I felt like only 40% oxegon was getting in at most I have to move my mouth like a fish and draw a breath in .

I ask a lot about breating problems but would just like to know how many people get it without panic attack

    It's normal my symptoms last all day even when I'm relaxed I get so worked up sometimes it can take a whole week of me relaxing taking it easy before my symptoms slowly go away it's hard because you start thinking this can't be anxiety because I'm calm and relaxed and still feel this way iv came to terms with it now I think accepting it's anxiety you have is the road to getting better I just say to my self when I get a pain or breathless or any other symptoms in fine it's just my anxiety and try to switch off from it

      I tell myself it's just anxiety and it seems to not help me anymore it used to .

      It's horrible I'm laid in bed now and it like hurts/tickles down my throat to breathe I just don't understand how anxoety can cause this much trouble I suppose I'm fighting with this is anxoety / no its not that my body is reacting to it

    I too have breathing difficulties even when I'm not having an attack. It's a little different from yours, however. I feel like I can't take a deep breath. If I do it feels unsatisfying

    Hi Steph. Sat here reading this as I am experiencing the same right now. Trying to take my mind off the breathing actually makes me more aware and therefore worse. Do you find that too? I got a little complacent as have been fine for a couple of weeks and for  no known reason, here I am, back to the struggling to breath problem. The only thing is it obviously  doesn't   affect me while asleep! I'm not having a panic attack, but I feel like I have anxiety lurking in the background. (If that makes sense) I have started CBT - one session up to now but have missed one this week.  Wondering  if thats anything to do  with it? Have you had any help like this offered to you at all? Felt really positive after my initial visit.

    hi....im sitting here at 5am..been wakend from 2am....suffering quite similar things.

    most nights i go to sleep about 11pm...and wake up in a panic with my heart racing approx 2am or 4am every night.i feel scared. .but have no reason to be...but it just happens.

    i think i have sleep apnea and anxiety,as when i wake and try fall back over,i sometimes feel my breathing stop and this wakens me in a panic.i also get a very very dry mouth.i have been taking "kalms nightly"for a week..at first i felt they were working,but not any more.im going to go to my dentist this week and get fitted for one of these mouth guards.i heard they can improve sleep.i feel like during the day my legs are weak..i feel dizyy and my heads like a tired sore head all day long.fuzzy feeling.im putting it down to very poor sleep.my neck muscles hurt and i feel like i clench my jaw a lot as well for no reason.im on no medication except the "kalms"

    would love to hear suggestions or tips.
