Anxiety/Panic can definetly cause the breathless feelings. I know when my anxiety is high I will lay down with a fan blowing in my face to give me the sensation of getting some air.
I find my Xanax helps when those feelings happen. Are you on any kinds of meds at all?
And welcome to the forum, we look forward to hearing more from you. We have a wonderful and loving group.
