Do you have the iron deficiency under control? That might be the root of the breathing and the tingling.
Low iron means less oxygen which means you need more breaths to compensate. Maybe you got used to taking more breaths per minutes while your iron was/is low ?????
If the hyper-vent increases the symptoms . . . than it sounds like the doc nailed it.
I discovered that I was sighing all the time . . . and also that sighing increases GI reflux issues . . . *sigh* So I just made a conscious effort to cut down on the sighing . . . except when I'm posting here . . . * sighhhhh *. LOL
I hope you are able to correct the rapid breathing.
Keep us posted.
