Is anxiety causing This?

Is anxiety causing a knotted feeling in centre of chest and sort of shallow breathing? I often read about anxiety but never really felt anxious like this!

    Hi Pinkcatfairy, yes it does come on like that as well. It's a scary feeling, I recall taking St. John's wort for it, it reduced my anxiety attacks that came on exactly as you described. Not sure where you're located but they sell those here at health food stores.

    That is exactly how I feel and I have to try to tell myself to breathe correctly and more slowly. And to sit up not slouch. I think I must be swallowing air or this is what makes me feel bloated and gassy. The knotty feeling is a good description.

    This is what I was prescribed Omeprazole for when I went to the doctors with it. I think it is prescribed to easily. On the omeprazole site a lot of women report side effects including anxiety from it. A very knowledgeable man called Barratts explains it protects the upper stomach from excess acid and is important when prescribed for the right reasons.

      Yes, I was put on Omeprezole for another peri symptom gastitis, it was OK for a while but gave me worse symptoms than before with excess gas, I went on to zantac after that.
