Lori I had this same thing yesterday and it is scary. It felt like something was keeping me from taking a deep breath. I called DH to see where he was cause I tend to panic and he was out of town at the time. I took a half of xanax and it went away after a little while so I don't know what it was. I have been having a lot of stomach issues and had been bending over a lot which tends to make me nauseous for some reason so I don't know if it had anything to do with GERD even though I have had surgery for it or what. I do not have asthma but who knows as much as I smoke. It could have just been anxiety for me. I know I didn't like the feeling at all. I did relax a lot more when I knew DH was back in town and not far away. I'm going to have a scope done on my stomach but I will bring that up to my doc.
Hope it doesn't happen again for any of us.
luv and hugs
