Do you yawn often? Probably yes! We all do. But sometimes yawning accumulates to the point where it can be really annoying, even a real discomfort for some people. And the same is true for sighing. We all sigh. But some patients need to sigh all the time.
Often it's accompanied by a feeling of not being able to breathe properly. It's like an internal anxiety and often associated withexhaustion, internal tension,dizziness and lightheadedness. It can cause anxiety or evenpanic. This is sometimes called sigh dyspnea or sigh breathing.
What is the background of yawning and sighing? Why do we actually do it? Why does it sometimes make us feel so exhausted? Why does it not get better by breathing quickly? Is there a therapy for it?
