Hi Angela -- I do the following controlled breathing technique:
inhale 7 (abdomen must go up - not chest) - hold for 8 - exhale to 8 (form a whistle mouth while blowing). This has helped train me to breathe differently or to at least think about breathing. Also an old psyche doc told me to go out and buy red stars and put them everywhere - spedometer, mirrors, computer, etc. and everytime I saw one - BREATHE. Feel better.
DX: chronic migraine, cervical degeneration, depression/anxiety
RX: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Soma, Immitrex
