« on: July 06, 2014, 07:09:42 PM »
right now I keep getting weird feelings in my body.. I feel like I can't catch my breath and it's frightening me so bad..  not sure if it's anxiety.. it happened yesterday evening but I slept it off.. woke up with chest pains took some ibuprofen and it went away.. I have no chest pains I just can't catch my breath and I'm so scared.. please help me.. I feel like somebody is sitting on my chest.. I just want relief.

My physician once told me that when you are anxious, sometimes you don't breath properly, which
causes the perception of not being able to breath, dizziness, tingling, etc.

If ibuprofen made your chest pain go away, it was a pulled muscle or something along those lines.  Not being able to catch your breath is pretty common with anxiety, and if you were able to sleep it off I wouldn't worry.  If it comes and goes it's most likely nothing serious.
