I was doing so great with some of this for a while. I havent genuinely felt like I couldnt breathe since about october, at least thats the last time I remember feeling it. I was at a restaraunt and I started feeling like I just wasnt getting enough air. It disappeared later, once I was out of the restaraunt, but I had bad anxiety that night trying to fall asleep. Around september/october, I started getting shortness of breath. It would come and go and it usually felt like my chest was somewhat sore muscularly and I couldnt get enough air. This was around the start of my anxiety problems. Then, after that day,it kind of just stopped happening except for here and there mildly when I was anxious. Now, since yesterday afternoon I have felt like I cant breathe enough air I've noticed that sometimes with this, it feels like my throat is sore, like the muscles or something. I was having a good time yesterday, just sitting on my computer, when all of a sudden I felt like I couldnt get enough air. Oh no, I thought. The feeling stayed with me all night and it is still here as I just woke up this morning. I get winded talking to my mom in the shortest of sentences, making me not want to talk. It feels awful. Distraction helps a bit since I dont focus on it, but its still there. Does this sound like typical anxiety to you? My OCD was crazy last night and I felt so anxious, but that was after my breathing troubles happened. Also kept getting little palpitations yesterday too. When I woke up this morning, I yawned really big and felt something in my chest for just a second. It felt like a palpitation, but could it have been my chest muscles? That was the theory I came up with. I dont know, I just want to have a nice christmas eve and stop worrying. Is it normal to be breathless for this long? How can I stop it? I am only 16, I shouldnt be having problems breathing..
