Deep breath issue. Lungs not expanding enough. Phobic to death. Help?

For some reason, I don t know if it s my psyche or not. But, I feel as though I am taking too many deep breathes and that my chest at times is not expandas it should. Then when I sleep at night, I have a phobia that I am not going to wake up because of the phobia of not knowing what s going on. I run about 18 to 20 miles a week as well as workout 4 times a week. Is there a problem? DENK
