Sometimes I realise that I've been subconsciously holding my breath for a bit too long and then I have to take a deep breathe to compensate. I don't actually think I breathe as often I should. Does anyone else get this?

Yes, mainly when I'm focussing on a manual task requiring dexterity, eg, drawing, painting, etc.

Yes! I tried explaining it to my flatmates though and they said it wasn't normal :sad:


I think it was from learning to play instruments when I was younger. Not sure why but thats the only time in my life I ever remember messing my breathing around.

I do, I think it's out of stress, when you get tense.

I can find it hard to swallow sometimes. So I feel like I'm choking...

Edit: yeah I was told it was because of high levels anxiety.

It happens a lot when I'm deep in thought. I have this strange habit of pouting my lips when I'm thinking so I stop breathing through my mouth. I only realise I'm doing it when I really need to start breathing through my mouth again. :dontknow:

Only when I think about how we breathe without thinking, then it all becomes concious and I panic.

Sometimes. Although recently I've had a blocked nose and sometimes when I'm eating I run out of breath really quickly because I can't breathe through my nose like normal. Same thing happened when I was kissing someone recently for quite a prolonged period. That was a bit awkward. Eventually I had to explain why I kept wanting him to kiss my neck every 30 seconds. I just really really needed air.

Yep, generally when facing high winds I just automatically stop breathing. Although way more embarrassing is when I suddenly forget how to walk... :erm:
