    Hi there

    Funnily enough I was taking part in a thread earlier on about telling the difference between asthma and anxiety, is it p[ossible that what you are experiencing actually asthma, not anxiety? I know my asthma hads kicked off again since we've had all these pollutants in the air over the last couple of weeks.

    I have asthma, shortness of breath and told by my Dr that it is the anxiety making my asthma worse and   because anxiety causes you to breathe faster it then exacerbates the asthma. Viscious circle. It is very unpleasant. I wish someone would refer me to a pulmonologist and tell me how to improve my breathing, reduce the anxiety and help me stop worrying I am about to expire. 

    If you have had tests for asthma and have been told you don't have it, shortness of breath is quite common with anxiety.  Has something happened to create a new wave of anxiety recently? Sometimes though, it can sneak up without warning . Bit of an a*****e it is! 

    Good to let loose on here now and again with people that understand.
