I am really struggling.
I thought I had really managed my anxiety with therapy and Zoloft. I don't feel any major anxiety at all. I think about things that are stressful at times, but don't really *feel* anxious, if that makes sense.
The doctors were treating me for allergy induced asthma since 2009 due to my complaints of tight breathing. I finally went to an allergist, and he doesn't think I have asthma at all (he said it could be a possibility, but I could tell he really thinks it is anxiety).
I feel tight breathing, like there is a band around my abdomen every single day at least once. I am scared there is something wrong with my heart or that I have a tumor.
Part of the reason the allergist does NOT think it is allergies is that when I take a puff of Albuterol, I can breathe almost immediately better (which is too quickly for the Albuterol to work).
I guess my question is if any of you have daily breathing issues that are related to dormant or present anxiety. I start to obsess about my breathing and it makes me wheeze and gets worse. I am so scared there is something seriously wrong, but the doctors don't seem to think so.
