why do i feel suffocated in ac
I need air . I feel like I am choking. I probably trashed our coats but this was a small price to pay for my sanity. I don’t have a fear of confined places or anything like that but I just have this breathing problem..like there’s not enough air for me to breathe in when I’m in stuffy places and when my body temperature rises above the room temperature. I have to take Codeine and Paracetamol daily (Fibromyalgia and restless legs). I really like having fresh air. I remember the beads of sweat rolling down my face and the surging panic inside my chest. My problems discussed with my neuro doctor and gave me cipralex 10mg for 3 month before bedtime and gradually continue til 6 month, at first i had this palpitation but get used to it. When a panic attack starts, I use distraction, avoidance or knowing the simple fact that it will pass shortly, to get thru it. I need it directly hitting my face but I’m often conflicted.

I hope that someday I’ll just grow out of it, but if this keeps happening to me into adulthood, I’m going to ask my doctor about it. A hot car is the worst. Does it ever go away? When I went to bed, I pulled more than one blanket over myself because it was cold in the bedroom and I knew it would be very cold overnight. Especially since there was no air conditioning. But when thinking about lying in a little tube, a great fear came over me by surprise so I accepted the prescription. Also, I would NEVER recommend Xanax or any other benzodiazepine to someone with breathing trouble since they are POTENT central nervous system and respiratory depressants. I will wake up in the middle of the night and I will feel fine for a few seconds, then suddenly- it’s like every pore in my skin has closed! Wow this is intetesting, Ive been having these problems as well twice on a bus and even in open air situations. I know how some of you feel but I been feeling this for a few years but most of the time when I driving I feel like I get really hot and feel like its hard to breath I really dont know what it is I need some answers what is it. Sometimes it just hits me if I’m doing something which gets my adrenalin going (for example recently I was playing a game, I came up to a perceived hard part (turns out it wasn’t) but I had to go to my bed for about half an hour, just to wind down from it and try it again. There is just something about the super tiny space and knowing you can’t go ANYwhere. While driving, we have the ac on, but when stopping for gas, I absolutely have to step out and feel air circulating. Still trying to figure it out …….. Wow, I didn’t even know that I might be claustrophobic until I saw this. It was extremely HOT and uncomfortable. Just a few minutes had past and I experienced a sudden increase in heart rate, feeling of suffocation, and I was about to panic that when I had to interrupt the meeting and ask them to on the AC. Sometimes I just hurry out bc I get dizzy and I HAVE to lay down in the cool air under my fan. I get all this but this is not just claustropic stuff, mine is physical have no anxiety of tight places etc.. most of these people aren’t, my AC has to be on 74 all year long above that I do choke, stuffy just slam hot… like outside in 100 degrees argue all the time with hubby who Dr. says he can warm up I can’t cool down.. end!

My most recent was last night, when my husband and I were out to dinner with an out-of-town relative. I live in my mind- sometimes I truly take a glance outside and it looks pretty good. Not fun. In all panic instances, I feel like I can’t breathe..my heart pounds..and for some reason, the right side of my head gets instantly congested–which makes the panic even worse. As a kid I would always get myself out of a trapping situation,(getting my hand stuck or not being able to scratch me back when needed) I would get myself out asap. It is debilitating and really starting to affect my quality of life. My best mate and others i have met also find cool/cold air helps. I thought I was going crazy and people around me feels I am crazy. This trapped feeling happened to me twice on overnight train rides, too. However, I’m terrified when (We joke that the next day, the people who tidied up the train would be pretty grossed out by my damp sheet.). I was so pleased to find this post.
