    Can't catch my breath/Need to take a deep breath or yawn

    I hadn't had this for several weeks, but it came back yesterday and its quite frustrating.

    As I type this, I have this feeling like I can't feel air filling my lungs, and end up gasping for a massive breath. Every few minutes I'll manage to take this massive breath or yawn and suppresses it for a little, before I feel short of breath again.

    I haven't really panicked with it yet because I know its psychological but its still annoying

    Answers on the internet all seem to mention its related to anxiety

    Anyone else get this?

    I had this when I stopped doing cardio for a couple of months. it's probably lung capacity related or something. For me it was at least.

    It's anxiety related. I get it when I'm stressed (so for me, partic around exam times etc). Very frustrating feeling I know..

    I dealt with exactly what you are describing. For me it was anxiety, even when I would just be sitting around doing nothing in particular. Somewhere in the back of your mind you're worried you will experience the difficulty in breathing again, and a physical response ensues.

    I ended up on anxiety medication for a few years, which I am now off of. But other techniques that my physician recommended for me were breathing in a brown paper bag, journaling on why you think you're experiencing the breathing issues, and focus on steady breathing once the issue starts. Over time it will subside, but it's something you're going to have to work at to control. If you find those methods are not working for you, you may want to try medication as it can escalate into full blown panic attacks.

    I suffered with this for over a year in high school it was terrible. It finally went away on its own until a couple months ago (I'm 24 now) and it stuck around for a couple months. I know what you mean it's an awful feeling. I noticed that when I kept myself busy and didn't think about my breathing I never did it. When I was out with friends or at the bars or whatever I was fine but at home by myself it was worse.

    Try keeping yourself busy, the more you think about it the worse it will be.

    @yettiatcpg I don't take any medication

    @N0rds I don't think its fungus related (I hope not) as Its more of a mental thing. I am capable of breathing somewhat properly but it just doesn't feel like it at all.

    I think I can attribute it to anxiety, just going to try and keep myself occupied like you guys say! Hopefully it will subside

    I have had this same problem for years and I finally found out what was going on. I (and I imagine everyone in this discussion) have something called "Hyperventilation Syndrome." Basically, over the years, we have learned to stop breathing deep in our bellies, as all newborns do, and learned to breathe in our chest's. Most of the time this is completely unconscious. Anxiety CAN exacerbate this, but most likely would go completely unnoticed.

    Before you say "Its not anxiety! I've tried every antidepressant and gotten all of the tests and nothing came back!" I would tell you that I did the same thing, and it all came back clear. Not being able to breathe and not knowing why is probably one of the most terrifying feelings there is and there have been many times where I have just wanted to take a swan dive over a high bridge. But believe me, there is a solution. First of all, realize that you absoloutely are getting enough air. That is not the problem. You will not die from this. The reason you feel like you are constantly out of breathe is because you are expelling too much carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is essential for maintaining oxygen levels; so when you don't have enought CO2, your brain realizes this, and attempts to take in more air, giving you that "air hunger" feeling. All you have to do to cure yourself of this is to relearn how to do belly-breathing. Google "Buteyko Method". It is excellent. Also check out the book Hyperventilation Syndrome by Dinah Bradley. Believe me when I tell you that it works and once you learn how to do this you will be fine. Sorry to everyone who is going through this horrible feeling. When it was at its worst, I literally felt like I was suffocating. If you find yourself panicking, just remember - you're expelling too much CO2. The best way to fix this is to breathe "low and slow". Lie on your back and breathe deep into your belly, as slowly as you can. Your chest shouldn't move at all. At first, it will feel very incomfortable; this is because your brain still feels like it needs more air. But what you are doing is slowly restoring the CO2, which will in turn modulate your oxygen. As I am writing this it sounds like a bunch of mumbo jumbo, but believe me it works. If you can't trust some random dude posting on this forum, and who would blame you if you couldn't, then just google "Hyperventilation syndrome" and try the deep belly breathing. You should also go for brisk walks and ONLY breathe through your nose. Never your mouth. Every time you breathe through your mouth you are expelling more CO2 and thus receiving less oxygen. I hope this works. It did for me.

    The exact same thing happened to me about a year ago and lasted a good month or so. I really didn't feel like I had any anxiety but the only time I really got like that was at work so like others said I do believe it was anxiety related. Best of luck brah.

    Don't be a mouth breather, serious. Structures in the nose called turbinates sense airflow & signal the cns that you're breathing. If you mouth breathe or are congested, you don't get that feedback
