> Allison -- are you on any meds for your depression/anxiety? You've got to make sure your doctor addresses this, because it can be quite distressing. Once when I had a dentist appointment, I was sure I was going to die in the chair because I couldn't catch my breath. It was terrible.

I suffer from panic attacks, dissociation, and depression. I am currently on 200mg of zoloft a day, and I also find Hypericum (St Johns Wort herb) to be very effective.
I also have very mild asthma and use flixotide and ventolin for that. My Dr. checked my peak flow and listened to my lungs, and he said anxiety. I havent always had this problem though, with the shortness of breath.
I find it very annoying as I am trying to go for a walk every day now and I find that I am puffing after a short distance !! Makes me feel old and I am only 25 !!!
