Health Anxiety :: Breathing Hard

I suffer with health anxiety and i never accept any symptoms are anxiety. I have diagnosed myself with every cancer going with dr google. I have had a back ache on my right for a few weeks, sickness and night sweats. I had loads of bloods took last week, blood pressure took and she listened to my chest and all were fine. I keep feeling like i can't breath properly and i am conscious of taking every breath, it feels like breathing through sludge. I have a feeling in the back of my throat as if i have been exercising hard or breathing hard. I am convincing myself that the breathlessness and back ache is lung cancer now.

I am not actually out of breath as in i am struggling to breath it's the feeling that i can't. The feeling has been here most of the day. Anyone else know this feeling?

Anxiety :: Obsessive Breathing? Sensorimotor OCD

So I've had problems with anxiety for years but the past months I've had problems with my breathing. Basically I became so obsessed over it that I started feeling like I have to take every breathe myself (manually).

I can just about deal with all of my other anxiety symptoms except this one. It makes me feel like there's something else wrong and I'm going to die.

I mentioned it to my doctor and he said he's never heard anything like it before. I also mentioned sensorimotor OCD and he didn't really care, he said he'd look into a therapist for me. That was 8 or so weeks ago and I've still not heard, I've rang up countless times and am no further forward.

So my question is, does anyone else with anxiety have this? Does anyone suffer with sensorimotor OCD that has tips for me?

Health Anxiety And Breathing Trouble

I'm 19 years old, female. I think I have anxiety.. Mostly about my health. I'm always freakish out thinking I have cancer or something serious, I make myself think I have something wrong with me.. A few months ago I was sick and I could have gotten better sooner if I didn't worry so much, it took me a month to get better because I kept telling myself I was too sick and I wasn't getting better but once I stopped thinking about it, I got better. Also with my tonsils I always think they're gonna be swollen so they are when I think that. But my worst issue is breathing.. I always feel like I have trouble breathing even when I'm not having an anxiety attack just randomly I'll feel like I'm breathing shallowly or just not getting enough air and when I REALLY think about it I start hyperventilating and almost pass out until I call someone and they tell me to calm down. When I have anxiety attacks I get all shaky, I get dizzy, pale, feel like I'm going to pass out and have really shallow breaths.. Idk what's wrong with me I think it's from my past or because I'm always so stressed out about my family. I also I have a problem going to the bathroom.. Tmi sorry but I can't poop anymore I'm always constipated and it always comes out in balls or logs but lumpy, I really don't know what's wrong with me so if someone could help that'd be amazing. Also, when I was at the ER months ago they checked my lungs and everything and said everything's fine, just said I have low potassium, idek why but when I was sick I didn't eat for a week so maybe that's why?

Trouble Breathing? Altitude Or Anxiety?

A little less than a month ago now I moved from Florida to high in the Rocky Mountains. I didn't have any unusual trouble with the altitude change at first but about 5 days ago I've suddenly had a lot of trouble with my breathing. I feel like I'm not getting enough air into my lungs, especially when lying down (which makes trying to go to sleep a huge pain). I was actually just trying to sleep a few minutes ago but I couldn't stand it. It felt like I was being suffocated very, very slowly. Even now, typing this while sitting up straight, I still feel a little dizzy. Besides a slight cold there's nothing else wrong with me right now. I've actually always had very good health, and the only other time I've ever had any trouble at all with my lungs was when I got pneumonia when I was 13.

Besides the altitude, the only other thing I can think of is that I was prone to anxiety attacks in high school, and I have been pretty stressed lately, but besides the shortness of breath this just doesn't feel the same.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? I really need to get over this quickly because I need my sleep! My new job is physically demanding enough without being tired all the time

Stress / Anxiety :: Trouble Breathing Lying Down At Night

So basically whenever I try to go to sleep at night I become focused on my breathing, I have the urge to take long deep breaths, because if I don't it feels like my breathing comes to a halt as if I stopped breathing. As opposed to normally when I stand up I don't have to take long breaths, or even be aware of my breathing.

Sometimes I don't have to focus on my breathing at night, especially if I'm distracted or watching tv when laying down. But if I take a deep breath I suddenly become more aware of my breathing patterns and fall into that urge to keep taking long breaths, otherwise it feels as if I'm not breathing at all. Any idea what this is? I googled trouble breathing lying down and got a few results, some saying it might be anxiety. Truth be told, I don't consider it anxiety except for the fact I have this urge to strain myself to take long breaths when laying down.

Anxiety :: Breathing Issue - Jerking/spasms/shocks In My Chest

I have had the breathing issue for about a month now and I get these weird kind of jerking/spasms/shocks in my chest sometimes and it's even scarier than the breathing issue

Does anyone else have this?

I went to the hospital the other night because I couldn't handle it

They checked blood pressure and heart rate and my blood pressure was a bit high probably just from the stress......

I'm thinking about getting an X-ray

I'm a smoker too so that makes me even more worried

Ramipril :: Palpitations, Difficulty Breathing

My wife was prescribed 10 milligrams/day dose of ramipril and nearly passed out in town, palpitations, difficulty breathing and pain in the chest. She was admitted to hospital with a view that she might have had a heart attack. They put a camera up her femoral artery but her heart was clear, no problems.

her blood pressure was 90 over 45. we stopped her taking the Ramipril and all her symptoms disappeared. It was as if the tablets were producing the palpitations and the chest pains which she was taking more and more tablets for.
