Likely anxiety: Based on the brief history, difficulties could be panic-related. Individuals experiencing anxiety tend not to breath from the diaphragm and breath more shallow - which often exacerbates anxiety/panic symptoms. Are you receiving treatment for anxiety/panic, including behavioral techniques that may help improve breathing? Would recommend followup with your provider to rule in/out respiratory issues.
