Hyperventilation Lung Problem Neurological
Could be either: Your body is set to breath only as much as you need oxygen or have to rid carbon dioxide. If the lungs become diseased and cannot perform its normal function, the body will respond by causing a higher respiratory minute volume(both rate and depth of breathing). Certain central nervous system problems may cause increased minute volume also, such as heavy alcohol intoxication, high fever. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Relax--: When a person hyperventilates the lungs tend to fill with increased oxygen levels and the CO2 levels decrease. The lungs are fine. They are doing their job with the blood removing Oxygen and releasing CO2. When the CO2 levels rise, the natural desire to exhale and inhale returns. The lungs just keep in doing what they do, responding to the muscles which expand and relax. ...Read more
What is the cure for chronic hyperventilation syndrome? My lungs are used to breathing much larger volumes through the chest and i can't stop it.
Treat cause: We breath different amounts during different times. Just like blood pressure and heart rate, body responds to what it needs. If you breath larger volumes, generally there are less breaths per minute. Hyperventilation without this can be due to a metabolic problem that keeps your body breathing excessively. See your doctor or more specifically a pulmonary specialist if needed. ...Read more
How do you stop chronic hyperventilation syndrome? Either my mind or my lungs have become accustomed to breathing large volumes of air. I can't fix it!
What are the best breathing exercises for chronic hyperventilation syndrome? I need to restore normal co2 and o2 levels in my lungs. It's very hard.
Earlier answer: Treat the anxiety problem to decrease hyperventilation and do frequent rebreathing in a paper bag like a lunch bag to increase co2. The only other way would be to increase the precursor of co2 which is bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) by taking calcium carbonate (tums) or acetate. ...Read more
Can constant overbreathing from chronic hyperventilation syndrome cause excess mucus to form on my lungs? I don't know if the mucus is from allergies.

Follow your doc: Follow your doctor's advice and don't diagnose yourself. Symptoms can overlap between different entities and if they started you on a treatment plan, follow it. ...Read more
Is there anyway to retrain your breathing? If your lungs are used to chronic hyperventilation is there anyway to reverse this?
Not really: Hyperventilation is either a physiological response to co2 or o2 levels in your blood sensed by the chemoreceptors in your brain or from an anxiety provoking mechanism (panic attack). So either you retain co2 due to copd/emphysema or you have high levels of Adrenalin from anxiety that stimulate hyperventilation. If the hyperventilation is from the latter you may try relaxation techniques. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
