Mr pa, what helps me the most is doing a deep stretching yoga called yin yoga. Since my anxiety has kept me from going to my yoga class the last couple of months, I use Leslie Fightmasters yin yoga class on YouTube at home.  It stretches a lot of the back muscles and does not get me out of breath at all.  I also sometimes have the burning back and the heating pad also helps me with that. Sometimes I get a sharp feeling in my back around my scapula and I put a tennis ball on the floor and lay myself on top of it. It feels soooooo good. I read a couple of anxiety/panic attack books that really helped too, along with therapy.
I wouldn't wish this feeling on my worst enemy (if I had one), so I hate to see so many people suffering with it.

I get this a lot too.  I read somewhere to breathe into a paper bag for about 30 seconds, it does help some.  I wish I knew the answer for this but that's all I got.  It is nerve-wracking

With all that said I bought a pulse oximeter. My oxygen saturation is 98-99% even when I feel like I'm suffocating.

Does that make you feel any better?

I too have the same symptom. I always end up breathing in deeply and sighing every few minutes, much more often than other people I'm around, because I feel like I never get a deep breath.

There are some times when it just gets so bad that I'll convince myself that I must be suffocating, and I'm expecting that I'm going to faint at any moment from it. I also get lightheadedness, but I think that's actually from uncontrollably hyperventilating in response. A few times I've gotten a panic attack because of how scared I got from thinking I'm going to suffocate.
