Hi all,

I’ve been suffering from health anxiety for 6 months now and my latest fight seems to be with my breathing.

Generally I feel like I’m not getting enough Oxygen. My breathing is rather shallow and fast for the large majority of the day.

Does anyone else experience this? How do you tackle it?

Look forward to hearing from you... 😊

Hi Lewis88 What comes to mind is you can buy a Fit Bit watch they cost about 100 pounds upwards depending on model OR you could go to see your doctor or do both. I recently had the same trouble my Docter diagnosed Astma and I now have 2 inhalers to use each day. :welcome: to the forum.

Thanks Prince Charming.

I’ll be with the doctors tomorrow so I’ll ask for their advice. Have you suffered from anxiety for a while?
