At the moment I have this thing where I feel the need to inhale a deep breath or take a deep yawn to relieve a sort of breathless feeling I get, now I have slight Asthma and take my inhalers when needed, but this seems unrelated. Over the years this is about the 3rd time this has occurred, and I told the Dr about it on one Asthma check up and he just give me a 'haven't got a clue what you're going on about' type of look, at the time when I told him it wasn't affecting me but I thought I'd mention it anyway.
So it's started up in the last few days again, and I've done a search online, and found numerous people, young to old, smokers and non smokers, athlete's and non athlete's who are all taking about similar symptoms, and who've been told by Dr's it's anxiety related, it's Asthma related amongst various other things, and these people are from all around the world.
Now I'm not too worried about it this time as I'm sure it will just cease like it has before. And the bizarre thing is my son had a similar thing around 3 years ago were he kept feeling the need to take deep breaths too. I have my own theories on what the cause might be, I think it might be allergy based, possibly spores, pollen etc... so I've been taking Benadryl to see if that helps.
But I know of a few people who talk about bizarre medical conditions that they just can't seem to get diagnosed at a GP, they fob them off with stress, anxiety etc... Yet they've read about other people will the self same problem online, now I'm sure most Dr's aren't too pleased with people saying hey I've Googled what's wrong with me, but I do believe that there are things out there that the average GP doesn't have a clue about or how to treat it !
