Yep yesterday started pretty good and I was optimistic. During the day I was out getting things for my daughters birthday party and I could sense it creeping up just a little. Was feeling it in the chest a bit os shortness there, but it was warm and though perhaps just the heat (by the way I hate the heat). She had her party with lots of screaming girls but still was ok.
While cleaning up and loading the truck was feeling it a bit more. Then got home and walked into the house. It was quite warm, even hot in there so started opening windows and even turned on AC to get the house cooled down then it hit me. I couldnt breath, I was so short of breath and heavy in the chest I didnt know what was going on. Tried laying down to relax, deep breathing, but couldn’t do it I was so on edge.
I finally popped a lorazaphm, got some shorts on and headed out the door to just walk. Listened to a podcast to try to take my mind off it all. Soon breathing was a bit better but walk was slower than normal. Got home and watch some tv and was calming down even more, not totally gone like the morning but down to that low background level. Then eventually bed, didn’t eat, forgot all pills. Just slept.
I wonder at times if it really is anxiety or another issues. I guess though that’s what keeps the anxiety going. Like a catch 22, is it the stomach causing the breathing causing the anxiety or the other way around?
Well woke open this morning to it again, perhaps a 3 or 4 on a scale of 10. Bothersome and noticeable but moving on and getting some things done. Doctors in a couple hours, let you know how that goes.
