Its been about 5 months since I had stage 3C adrenal fatigue and I’m feeling much better. Most of my symptoms are gone besides minor heart palpitations and obviously fatigue (although the fatigue is much less). One thing that has been bothering me though is shallow breathing. I had it all the time when I was in stage 3C but I’ve noticed that it goes away and comes back every now and then over spans of weeks. I just had a mini crash and was recovering with normal breathing but now my shallow breathing is back. It really freaks me out and feels like I’m barely breathing, is there a fix for this or do I just have to continue healing?August 15, 2017 at 6:35 am #12716
Hi fedup. Is your shallow breathing correlated to stressful situations? It sounds like you might not yet have reached the point where you can deal with significant stress. Feeling overwhelmed can trigger symptoms like shallow breathing.
It might be worthwhile keeping a diary of when this is happening, and writing down what is going on in your life each time.
In the meantime, keep eating well and exercising!

I did some more research and found that my shallow breathing was from chronic subconscious hyperventilation. I did about an hour of meditation and found my breathing to improve although it is still a bit shallow.
