    Does anyone else suffer from chronic hyperventilation related to anxiety? I would be interested in hearing about your experience and how you deal with it. Thanks.

    Hiya Shoozer. Yes, I get breathless due to anxiety attacks. I take a deep breath, hold it in for a second or two then let it out slowly. This brings more air into my bloodstream and calms me down. What is happening is that you have been shallow breathing for a while before the attack. Your heart starts to pump fast to get more air around your body. So when you take a deep breath and do that for a couple of minutes it calms you down.
