I am sorry to hear that you are struggling atm. Feeling like you can't breathe freely can of course be a trigger for anxiety.
However, with some coping skills, you can likely self calm and save yourself a trip to the ER.
Here is the link to our Resources. Inside you'll find a lot of exercises, meditation, tools and helpful methods for managing anxiety and panic.www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=9&m=104206
The Therapy Worksheets
will help you to diffuse the fearful thoughts you are having. The Stress Relieving Exercises
will help you lower your overall anxiety...and the Positive Mantras/Reassurances link
