This started about a month ago when I couldn't get a breath I was having to yawn most of the time all day long you would yawn in about three minutes later you have to yawn again and again and got to where you thought u were going crazy and It just lead to more yawning the doctors say it's all in your head I've been to three doctors. I think it's in my diaphragm area because it hurts right in there a little bit I have found that if I get in the Jacuzzi at 102° temperature when I get out I feel better the next day I have it again but not always I've tried Xanax antidepressants that doesn't work I think you need something to relax the diaphragm

    I was doing that all the time yawning and the doctor did a couple of breathing excersices and then sent me for a ct scan which shown up pulmonary fibrosis. The decision cries have no right to tell u it's in your head . I am now on hydrogen peroxide which as put a stop to my yawning

    As mentioned in an earlier reply this morning, I suffer with exactly the same. I had this a few years back and managed to overcome it. I managed to find a 2mg diazepam tablet amongst my medicine cupboard. I tooknow this as it was getting beyond a joke , I wanted to yawn and get that deep breath every 30 seconds. The tablet seemed to relax me a little. I take martazpine but they won't help with this

    year's ago and I will not go back down that road , I found that a couple of cans of beer helped but I am not depending on alcohol. I had it before and it went so I can assure you and also myself it will gradually go . I would have a wordd10 with your doctor and see if he can prescribe a small amount of 2mg diazepam to get you through this. It will relax you and may help .Antonio
