    It sounds like shortness of breath anxiety symptoms.  Control the hyperventilation by taking slower breaths so that your body can regain some of its carbon dioxide.  Also breathe through your stomach since this breathing is more productive.

    beacause when we get into an anxious state we get into our heads and forget about how to breath properly using our diaphragm ,  i picture and elevator going going up as i breathe in and as it goes down i blow out very slowly do this for a then count..

    I have it regularly... Lol your body will breathe on its own we just hyperventilate and make it feel as though not breathing properly . always remember if you can talk you are breathing. Tryto square breath deep breathe in mouth 4 seconds hold 4 seconds and release 4 seconds
