    Hi this is quite normal when suffering from Anxiety have had the same myself still do get it now and then the most important thing to remember that your going to be ok try your best not to think about it only seems worse the more you do think about it do something to distract yourself when this happens reading etc I know it hard but believe me it does go away the less you think about it . you could even try to close your eyes take slow deep breaths in and out and just concentrate on your breathing this works very well . hope this helps

    Hello, Leonald. Sorry to hear that you've been feeling anxious lately. I can say that the urge to take a deep breath every few minutes is very common for anxiety sufferers. This typically is accompanied by feelings of fatigue and dizziness. At some point, you may also experience some pains in your mid-back, because trying to constantly breathe deeply will tense your muscles up. All of these feelings...and I mean all of them...are the result of anxiety. I'm new to this forum and new to many of these feelings, but I think that you (like me) have health anxiety. Keep taking your medicine, give it time to work, and try to convince yourself that nothing is wrong with you. Your brain is just stuck in that fight-or-flight mode. Your symptoms aren't fake, either -- the brain is powerful, and what you feel is real, but it's NOT harmful to you. Just unsettling, upsetting, and uncomfortable. Take it slow, and try to relax. This site has been helpful to me...post here as often as you need to for reassurance...that's what I've been doing. 

    Much love, 

    Nick
