I am so sick and tired of this...but I want to help myself. I have been having shortness of breath for the past 3 years. I know it's because of anxiety. It's chronic. I believed my "hiatal hernia" was causing it, but after the endoscopy yesterday they said I didn't have one...
I noticed when I first wake up in the morning my breathing is fine. I do have inflamed sinus in my nose so when I have morning boogers it is hard to breathe lol. This makes my breathing a little labored.
As the day goes on, I notice I get lightheaded and start feeling hungry/fatigued. I notice my breathing becomes shallow and I start focusing on it. (Bad I know). I usually snack and it goes away but sometimes it doesn't. Keep in mind my SOB is always there. THE ONLY TIME I DIDN'T HAVE SOB WAS YESTERDAY AFTER THE ANESTHESIA. Is this because it relaxed all my muscles? Or is it because I have a CNS problem? (sorry :) )
I want to get rid of this. I am working out but it's so hard with my shortness of breath. The palpitations and labored breathing becomes immense, which of course I focus on and it gets worse.
Couple of things I noticed:
-I get lightheaded from sitting to standing
- lightheaded from having my head down
-headaches from lying flat down on a pillow
-diagnosed with Fibromyalgia
-my arms and legs fall asleep if compressed faster than normal
-overweight but I lost 33 lbs so far.
- I will conquer this but I need all the help I can get.
Anyone recommend breathing exercises or something so I can get my normal breathing back?
