So sorry for not posting earlier. Had a rubbish week, my daughter got sickness & diarrhoea, which she kindly passed on to me! (and hubby got off scot free!)
Anyway, went to doctors. He listened to my chest, did some breathing tests, blowing into a tube etc. Nothing abnormal showing up. I have to wait 2 weeks, if it's no better go back and he'll send me for a chest xray.
He did say that some people can have a kind of panic attack where they feel they aren't catching their breath properly? Not sure about that one, but he's the doc. He said the common thing with this kind of panic attack is the yawning to be able to get a breath.
It's still there so I will go back for the xray if it doesn't go. I will let you know how things go. I found that if you google "unable to catch breath yawning" it brings up this panic thing for anyone who's interested in reading it. Didn't think I was a panicky person though. Not anymore stressed than normal!
