Hello everyone,

I hope to find all well for each of you at the beginning of the New Year.May this Year be the BEST yet!At times I feel SOB and have rapid breathing.When I don't key into it,it abates.It scares me because all I can think about is my Daddy.He was DX'd with CHF and it got progressively worse that his breathing was constantly rapid,which scared me.HA leads me to suspect I have CHF or some dreaded Disease of the Heart or Lungs.I'm afraid to mention these Symptoms to my Doctor for fear he WILL find something wrong with me.

Hey Sydnee10,

Please do speak with your doc, because putting it off is not helping you any with your anxiety or health :) If you do have something wrong, then you should get it taken care of ASAP, IMHO. I have a feeling this is a symptom of your anxiety and you can start helping yourself today by using some Breathing Techiniques and some Relaxation. You can find links to these exercises at the top of our forum page under the Anxiety-Panic Resources thread :)

I wish you the best and luck and please keep us posted!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

Green Grove,

It doesn't occur on a continuous basis,so I'm led to believe it is Anxiety/Stress/Worry.This has not been the best Week.My Step-Mother passed away 6 Years ago the 22nd..Today marks 2 Years that my Father died..I'm continuing to have problem with my Dad's Sister and their Sister in-law..only this time with my Grandparent's Property Legally Deeded to me soon 18 Years ago..those 2 can't be content unless their giving me $h*t!

Sydnee,

I am sorry about the anxiety  the anniversary of your stepmother's death causes you.  You have had anxiety for a long time and often have physical issues that link to it.  If you feel you need to, see your physician.  Otherwise my best suggestion is to practice staying in the moment.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Yesterday is gone forever, tomorrow is not yet here and Today is really all we ever have. We may have the memories of yesterday but it is over and so we do not need to continue to live in it. Well tomorrow is not here so it might be nice to set goals for tomorrow, or dream of what we would like it to be, but again it is not here yet so we can not live in it until it gets here. So we can only live in the here and now of Today. What a wonderful gift. (AA)

This is one of my favorites that I use to bring myself back to homebase.

Take care
Kitt

Sydnee,

From another SOB'er :), I know how you feel. If you do have a family history, it's good to be checked out - I know it's scary. However, I'm so glad I know what I can and can't expect from my body, and my spells of having shortness of breath turn into uncontrollable panic have stopped now. It took several months for me to get through my head that my respiratory system was fine, but I do feel so much better now when I start feeling SOB and can tell myself it won't really hurt me.
