Sorry to hear.  Are you able to take deep breaths?  Are you sure the breathing isnt isn't a physical one?  You could see a regular
dr. for that.  Or if you're pretty sure it is anxiety, maybe watch some fun TV.  Or hug your son.  Don't resist an anxiety episode.
Try to make friends with your anxiety.  There's nothing to be afraid of.  Anxiety is trying to trick you and scare you.

Hi , its 100% anxiety and the thoughts of i cant breath , i cant talk.  I cant do anything . I give up :) same happening with us but in different stories . If you just convinced ur self that u breathing well u will see that u breathing well and u still a live , i dont know what kind of medication u taking but u must know that anxiety and ocd , depression medication start work after 3 weeks at least but usually 4-6 weeks and depend on dosage , I'm suffering GAD too and its coming to me in bad thoughts but I'm try to calm down and talk to my mind .... Few years ago my anxiety started by feeling tight throat too and cant swallow and this is just stress and anxiety and negative feelings , dont give up u can heal ur self by ur self and ask help from experts and people around u .... Have u tried yoga and breathing techniques , exercising slowly and meditating , distracting ur mind and take it beyond this feeling of cant breath ..... U already breath because ur here talking to me :)

When I feel this way, I tell myself it's just anxiety.  Anxiety can not kill you.  Don't fight the anxiety by telling yourself you MUST calm down.  Tell yourself that it IS just anxiety and it WILL pass and yes, in that moment you may feel horrific, but all you need to do is just ride it out and you absolutely will feel better.

Also, sounds like maybe you could use some medication adjustment.  Talk to your doctor about this--I don't know what you're on or how long or anything, but it sounds like you could use something to to help you along as you learn coping skills.

On days of gray when doubt clouds my view
It's so hard to see past my fears
My strength seems to fade and it's all I can do
To hold on 'til the light reappears
Still, I believe though some rain's bound to fall
That You're here next to me and You're over it all

Hey man, this sounds like 100% anxiety, I can almost promise it is. For peace of mind, I would see a Cardiologist and get everything checked out so he can tell you that you're alright. This is what I had to do. I have the same feelings, couldn't breath, something was in my throat and it was closing. All the BS that anxiety gives you. I still think I can't breath here and there, but look we're still alive man. It sucks I know, but we will get through this. Most anxiety meds take up to 6 weeks to work, it sucks but you'll get through it.

Maybe ask your doc if you can have something to get you over the hump until you everyday medicine starts to work? I take Xanax as I'm still waiting for my Lexapro to start working.

This is my main anxiety symptom. I frequently throughout the day feel like I can't breathe. I take deep gasps to catch my breath and many times it doesn't help. When I talk it makes me out of breath and when its really bad my heart will skip beats (PVCs).

The good news is I've had this off and on since 2009. Its relieved by exercise or a dose of a benzo. That right there is a clear diagnosis it is anxiety. I haven't died from it and when I start to think of my breathing it gets worse.

Hang in there. You are not alone. You can choose how to react to this breathing issue. I used to get really upset about it and exclaim its not anxiety. Over time as it became more apparent it was anxiety I started to accept it as not life threatening. Today I choose to accept it and be happy. Its tough but it makes a big difference in my quality of life.
