    The out of breath is a common anxiety symptom, jim. If you will take an hour oor two to read through some other anxiety discussions, you willl find a lot of info. that will help a lot. Includng breathing techniques that will help a lot. The more you understand about anxiety, the better you will deal with it. I assume you are seeing a therapist?

    Another thought, is that  you may have a thyroid disorder. That can also manifest with breath probelms.

    I am dealing with both. It's a simple blood test and the results are back pretty quickly.

    When you see your doctor about the thyroid test, talk to them about the breathing problem also....you mention that you are on meds...you may need a change there, also. Hope this helps, Honey.

      I forgot to say that I have the breathing problem with anxiety,and it did get worse until thyroid was checked and I was put on meds for it.

      Thyroid problem would not show up unless your doctor ordered that test.

      i often recommend reading through other anxiety discussions to educate and reassure yourself, and am surprised how few people do it.

      Your symptoms are so common that we see them here hundreds of times a week. Knowledge is power and peace. I am trying to help you help yourself. That is what happened for me when I found this forum. i paid attention what I was reading and found that my chalenges were pretty much what everyone with anxiety is going through. The breathing thing is one of the most common to us, Jim. Do some homework, and start reading.biggrin

      Dearest Jim, I wish I had a dollar for every time someone posted that they thought they were dying. I'd be on my way to Palm Springs.

      I don't mean to make light of something that seems so real to you, I just want you to realize how very common that thought is for people dealing with anxiety....especially before they learn techniques to get their lives back.

      Like I said....do some homework. Your job is to learn about what you are dealing with!!! The discussions here are the place to do it, Honey
