Shallow breathing
« on: April 05, 2014, 03:33:22 PM »
When I get anxious my breathing becomes shallow in stead of hyperventilating. I notice that almost as soon as I leave the house and sit down for long my breathing becomes more shallow. Can this happen subconsciously? I'm starting to think I have like sitting hypotension or like a breathing problem. Or maybe it's the klonopin subconsciously counter acting my anxious breathing. It's annoying cause it's like I'm not physically nervous when I'm driving but my breathing becomes so shallow. I've gotten a lot of heart testing done and a ct of my chest but idk.

If you have had a CT of your chest and testing done on your heart and it showed it as nothing, it is nothing.

So how'd the first day taking meds go?

I do this too.  Are you a chest or stomach breather?  If you breathe into your chest, it's more likely to be shallow, which I learned recently.  I've started taking more notice and breathing deep into my abdomen and it's helped me.  Basically, just take slow breaths and fill your lungs all the way, making sure your stomach pushes out gently while you do.  If you practice it enough, it'll become second nature and you won't have to think about it.
