Its all day everyday i can not seem to catch that big breath. Does anyone else have this. I just feel so brealthless and all i keep thinking is maybe this is not anxiety and panic maybe i have something major wrong. I was prescribed Sertraline yesterday any thoughts on it.

I don't know if meds are causing this? How is your breathing? Are your breaths shallow or fast? Are you able to check your heartrate? Does it get better if you sit still for 5 minutes?

I'd go back to your dr, hope you find the cause.
