Does anyone else feel seriously breathless?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi everyone, I've been checked out for this and been told all ok physically but I get so breathless most of the time and literally feel like I'm suffocating. It can last for days or weeks at a time. It's impossible to go about my daily stuff and it drives me crazy..crazier??!! Anyone any tips please? Or reassurance? Thank u

    Hi Paula, anxiety can cause a feeling of breathlessness(is that even a word ? ?) although people have lots of different symptoms. See your Dr for sure and get it sorted sooner rather than later. Tell them how it's making you feel. Good luck.

      I'm not overweight Richard and the other two have been ruled out. I'm usually ok when I wake up, it's just as the morning goes on I get a choking sensation then the breathlessness kicks in and can last all day 😔

      Yes Elaine..my eyesight goes wonky and keep having to blink and I have sharp stabbing pains in my back and chest. Feel like I have a lump in my throat as well . Do u have other things going on?

      Aww it's so difficult. I get bouts of high pitched ringing in my ears and go dizzy with it but that can also be caused by anxiety. I think u have the cancer anxiety like I have the heart anxiety. I'm sitting here trying to make tea and act normal. Chest heaving trying to breathe. Shouldn't but gonna have a glass of wine with it being Fri night lol. Takes the edge off the fear I've struggled with all day

      Just noticed other message u put on Elaine! I've been to see my doc for years with it and been in psychy ward twice this last year 😖 they're all at a loss really. Starting CAT therapy next month if nlp doesn't work but I'm too sensitive to medication so can't go down that route either! Boooo
