I have the constant need to take a deep breath, it can start as soon as i get in the car, if i am watching telly, when i eat. I had a preveter pump for asthma for 3 weeks, it did nothing for me. I am now being sent for an endoscopy as i get tightening just at the opening of my stomach and the bottom centre of my ribs. I have driven myself crazy, anyone with any ideas

You might benefit from learning deep, 3-part breathing to improve oxygenation in your circulatory system. This is the opposite of hyperventilation, or rapid or deep breathing, usually caused by anxiety or panic. This overbreathing may actually leave you feeling breathless. If you frequently overbreathe (sometimes referred to as hyperventilation syndrome), this may be triggered by ongoing emotions of stress, anxiety, depression, or anger.

I would agree that it sounds as though you may be suffering from hyperventilation syndrome. You might want to review resources on breathing re-training which can be very helpful.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You would need to have echocardiography and pulmonary function tests. If these are fine then consult psychiatrist to evaluate you for anxiety disorder.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

I perceive your concern.
I would Agree that you just are full of respiration syndrome.
If you regularly overbreathe (sometimes brought up as respiration syndrome), this could be triggered by in progress emotions of stress, anxiety, depression, or anger.


Thank you.
