Breathlessness in children

5) Physiological effects of anxiety

Your child’s anxiety may make them feel:

  • Fear.
  • Breathlessness.
  • Choking sensation.
  • PalpitationsĀ of the heart.
  • Restlessness.
  • Increased muscular tension.

If your child makes themselves breathless deliberately by exercising regularly, their brain will get used to the feeling of being breathless and stop over reacting to it.
