i have the same concern :( i've had a 2ECGs, an echocardio, a stress test, holter monitoring, chest x-ray and a spirometry test -- all results were fine but i still have shortness of breath, raced heartbeat, feeling like i can breathe or that choking feeling. i've been to a total of maybe 11 doctors, 8 of which told me i have anxiety. my entire family and friends tell me the same thing but what they don't know is that everything is so real & not just in my head. i'm new to this. it started last year, november 2013 and i no longer know what is caused by anxiety and what is reality... :fragend005:

I'm not a medical professional, but the anxiety SOB is usually similar to hyperventilation and is HUGELY common for HA folks.  Have you read the thread "This List is a Lifesaver"?  SOB is one of the most common anxiety symptoms.  True SOB that is not anxiety-related is with you 100% of the time and can be due to many different factors.  Remember, even when you've left the anxiety behind, your body is still in overdrive and takes time to settle down.  Be well  :action-smiley-065:
