    God yes I've had this for years it's one of my most scary symptoms of anxiety it feels like im suffocating I get it even when I'm calm I guess I'm never fully relaxed only thing that helps me get rid of it is by doing something to distract myself like ring a friend or go somewhere were I have to not focus on it such as shopping ect if I sit around worried about it , it becomes wayyyyy worse
