These physical symptoms are usually as a result of your
brain sending out multiple messages to various parts of your body when you're feeling anxious. These messages tend to make your
lungs work faster.
When you are feeling anxious your body begins to release a stress hormone called
adrenaline. This is another reason why your
heart beats faster and you breathe more rapidly.
If you are unsure if your symptoms are caused by
anxiety you can see your doctor.
