Reassurance: Hi, it’s very common for symptoms of stress/anxiety to mimic symptoms of respiratory/cardiovascular system. Your symptoms have been prolonged and more severe causes are possibly less likely. Are you under more stress and I can imagine the current pandemic situation as a possible factor for many. It would be ok to see/talk to your doctor for an evaluation just to make sure. Hope it helps.
