I had it come and go for quite a while.  Doc gave me a breathing test and said i had a slight bit of asthma and gave me an inhaler but it never helped.  Then one day when I was having a hard time breathing I noticed I was breathing thru my mouth and not my nose.  When I thought about it, I have a dust allergy and my nose was clogged so I was breathing thru my mouth which makes it feel like I'm having a hard time breathing.

I started taking an over the counter generic allergy tab every day and my sinuses are clear and I dont feel any breathing problems - been good for several months at this point

Is it worse when you do something after eating?  THAT could be GERD.

Do you burp a lot when that happens? (most likely GERD then)
And ALSO, allergies or stuffed sinuses can cause that.  If I have a cold or stuffy sinuses and run up the basement steps I feel horrible!  Heart pounding, shortness of breath, shaky, etc.   (normally I can run up and down 10 times and nothing happens) so sinus issues TOO can cause it, I forgot to mention that the first time, but rereading the posts I saw patmob's post and it reminded me.

I have the shortness of breath every day....some days are better than others.
But, I've been dealing with mine for going on 2-3 years now.
And mine gets worse when I eat or talk a lot.
I've gone to the ER a few times because of it and they always tell me that nothing is wrong with me.
Just Anxiety....
Hard to believe, though.
Especially, when it gets to the point where I feel like I'm going to pass out  :(

You'll be fine :)
Just relax.

Agreed, I have the same issue, worsened by acid reflux. Some days are better than others. One trick that helps me is to take deep breaths - breaths so deep that it takes all of your mental concentration to manage the inflow of air to your lungs, and exhale through your mouth. For me it does two things, #1 it's hard for me to allow my mind to worry when I'm focusing on breathing, #2., deep breaths activate a body's natural relaxation reaction (at least according to my physician).
