Question: Went to the hospitol with a serious breathing issue 4 times and resolved it on my own by taking a .25 mg zanex. I find it hard to believe i can get so stressed this can happen. Went through a battery of tests on heart and it was ok. Not perfect. Im 66.

Brief Answer:
Possibility of stress and anxiety related breathlessness is more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Xanax is having alprazolam. It is given for stress and anxiety.
Your breathlessness is relieved by Xanax and your cardiac reports are normal. So no need to worry much for your breathlessness.
In my opinion, your symptoms are mostly due to stress and anxiety.
So better to consult psychiatrist and get done counselling sessions.
Try to identify stressor in your life and start working on its solution.
Don't worry, you will be alright.
Please let me know if you smoke.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
