Yes I do that a lot when I'm anxious or stressed. I also will feel lightheaded.

When I am very stressed experience the same symptoms as ryates80.  To regain a normal breathing pattern I stop what I am doing at the time to help me relax, and once I have somewhat relaxed, take deliberate, slow deep breaths.  In a couple of minutes, my breathing is back to normal. 

Do believe the key is to first relax as much as possible when the shortness of breath begins, which is easier said than done!  I find sitting down in a comfortable chair helps, or stepping outside to feel the pre-winter weather helps. 

Hope this helps!

My doctor said that when stressed, your breathing can become labored.

This is exactly what I am experiencing today. I felt like my breathing was weird. I have been having horrible anxiety though and today I didn't have the adrenaline rush and pounding heart and was so glad,but out of nowhere I feel tired,sleepy and like I am not breathing correctly. I came to sit down to relax. I am very sleepy also. I have been up since 7 am.
I know the anxiety does lots of weird things to us.

We know about anxiety, panic, depression, etc. and the damage they can cause.

Well, stress fits right in there and is starting to get the attention it needs. Stress can cause anything or everything, none of it any good. My modest answer has been daily meditation. Slowly breathe in healing oxygen and breathe out all I don't need. Am thankful to daughter who introduced me to it. Have made it my special time promoting the good and discarding the bad.
