What treatment are you having for your anxiety?
None, it hasn't been diagnosed so to say. I just know thats how I am mentally. Tomorrow would probably be the first time will address the issue if thats what this is, my guess it is.
Yes, anxiety is my best guess as well. I think if you have that treated, and use your CPAP machine as well as trying to lose a little weight you will find the symptoms disappear.
But what is causing me to have the breathing episodes. Is thatg anxiety? Like I wont even be thinking of anything,
Yes, it's the anxiety that is causing the "breathing episodes." There is no actual problem with your breathing, you just feel like there is, or is going to be. The fact that they stop when you are distracted means that there is no organic cause. Anxiety can trigger all kinds of physical symptoms. In fact we treat more panic attacks in the ER than we do heart attacks. A panic attack is just an extreme form of anxiety.
Yes it is possible to have anxiety that causes these thoughts to come to you throughout the day regardless of what you are doing. Some people can wake up from a nap with them. It doesn't take any particular trigger to have the thoughts appear. Treating the anxiety eliminates the irrational thoughts.
Thats actually what happned the first time, it happened I woke up from a nap.
Anxiety disorders can happen that way. No one knows precisely why a patient is fine one minute and worried he can't breathe the next. We just know that people with anxiety behave that way.
