I have agoraphobia, generalized anxiety, obsessive compulsive, panic disorder. I get episodes where it feels someone is sitting on my chest and I literally either hyperventilate, or feel like I cant get a deep breath or that the air feels heavy and I feel like Im having asthma.....I don't have asthma, I've had a few pulmonary function tests done and proven I dont have asthma, the doctor says it's all mental, anxiety related...anyone else experience similar symptoms???
