6 Months ago I went to the doctor for the feeling of shortness of breath, When I inhaled I couldn't get a full breath. I had Hyperventilation Syndrome as I think its called.
I went to the doctor and had several tests including Ectocardiogram, Chest X-ray, Blood test, Breathing test and a few others. They all came out Nothing was wrong. After that I went to the psychiatrist Because my Doctor told me it was probably Anxiety but I didn't feel as it was the cause. I went and he gave me Lexapro which I tried for a month but not sure if it helped. A while after This I went to the ER because it was really bad one night, Every time I triied to take a deep breath in I couldnt get it and THE ER doctor told me my CO2 levels were low and usually when it was better I could get it sometimes but that Night was horrible. Right now Ive been trying Nose breathing and Stomach breathing and I feel better but I still need some help. Can you please help me?

This is how I breath just so you guys can get a picture now. Before I breathed with my mouth but now with my nose. I take a few breaths in and exhale pretty shallow, not deep. I then have the urge to take a deep one and sometimes I get the satisfying feeling and sometimes I dont and the cycle repeats. Right now I dont think im breathing fast but when I ahve the urge to take a deep breatha nd take it i dont get a satisfying breath
