I wonder if this is part of an anxiety problem. Do you have any other anxiety symptoms.? Like racing heart, sweaty palms, feeling of impending doom.? If so, you should go to your doctor to check out if anything is physically wrong, such as a thyroid problem or low iron etc. If everything checks out, ask for a referral for cognitive behavioral therapy.This helps you learn new ways of thinking about things and how to calm yourself.Health Question & Answer

Breathing rate of the average adult is 12-20 breath per minute.

If your breathing is too slow, you may have respiratory depression; also check any possible medication your both on if applicable.

Go to the doctor.Health Question & Answer
