It is if you feel as if you're having a panic attack. Lots of people feel unable to breathe during this time because your body goes into 'fight or flight' mode. Your brain will feel as if it is in danger for some reason and being almost unable to breathe is a part of this response. You may also feel an elevated heart rate, shaking, and sweating.
It most definitely is not. It couldn't be a number of things from asthma to anxiety and panic. Try to find out if there are any triggers before this happens and talk to a doctor. No one should have to cope with feeling unable to breathe.
Not normal in a healthy person, no. Not being able to breathe can be for a lot of things, but diffidently anxiety. Anxiety can really shut us down. I have a hard time breathing sometimes too. It's awful.
It's normal in panic attacks, yes. There are many reasons for feeling a tightened chest, but the two most incredibly common reasons are panic attacks and asthma.
As a nurse I would have to say it is not normal. You might be having a panic attack or a heart attack but as a person I know love can take your breath away
most definitely. they are called panic attacks.i deal with anxiety on a daily basis and the whole being unable to breathe has happened to me more than i want it too. it took me till i was 37 to finally go and talk to someone about it. if you have these issues please talk to someone. wether it be someone on here or a professional. it is not normal
No, definitely not! There can any thing ranging from anxiety, depression, panic, attacks, etc. Please consult some doctor or professional, as this can be serious physically.
I used to feel like an elephant's foot was pressing down on my chest when I was in large crowds. My breathing became uneven and I would feel very uneasy. I would escape to the bathroom or anywhere where I can be alone. I would concentrate on my breathing until it returns to normal. This might take a couple minutes
Feeling like you're unable to breath is usual caused by anxiety or panic or stress. I would seek ways to learn to calm yourself when it happens and also talk to people.
Feeling like you are unable to breathe is a common symptom of anxiety. I feel that everyone at one point in there life had dealt with this feeling. It is a very scary moment to go through and taking a little bit to stop. But with perseverance, and support you can get through this scary moment.
