What can be the cause of the intense tingling/electricity attacks in my half body (especially ribs) when I run/walk/jump/drink alcohol/hyperventilate?
Varies: This varies from person to person ranging from fast to not being able to fully pass out. When one hyperventilates, the arterial carbon dioxide level drops, this causes a physiologic decrease in blood flow to the brain, and depending on the person, they may pass out due to decreased blood flow similar to a fainting episode. Don't try this alone or while standing. ...Read more

I will deal w only: One type of hyperventilation. Hyperventilation prior to breath hold dives or swims. A diver blows off co2 by hyperventilating to over-ride the mechanism in the body that stimulates breathing when the co2 level rises. It is done to ^ time underwater. Breath hold capacity has bragging rights in the diving community. Here's the problem - you can black out & lose consciousness or even die. ...Read more
Big and vague?: I'm not sure if you are asking about medically induced hyperventilation after head trauma to reduce intracranial pressure, or if you just had a knock to the head where you lost consciousness yourself. If it's the latter, get seen by a doctor. Even minor concussions have important medical implications and you need evaluation and follow up. Best of luck. Seriously, see a doc ASAP. ...Read more
Slightly different: Hyperpnea is the process of taking really deep breaths. Hyperventilation is the process of breathing fast, but also takes into account the volume of the breaths. Ventilation speaks to the body's ability to breath out or eliminate CO2 or metabolic waste. Hyperpnea can contribute to hyperventilation (breathing out more CO2), but you don't have to be hyperpneic in order to hyperventilate. ...Read more
Overweight: Being overweight can cause shortness of breath with exertion. More calories are required for basic metabolic functions. In addition, the weight constricts the rib cage with breathing. If the symptoms of shortness of breath persists, then an evaluation by a physician is necessary. They may perform spirometry testing and a chest xray. ...Read more
Normal physiology: This is entirely normal. The breathing reflex is triggered most prominantly by rising carbon dioxide (CO2) in the blood, and less strongly by lower oxygen levels. Hyperventilation can rapidly drop CO2 to low levels. When you stop, the breathing reflex is reduced and for 1-2 minutes you probably take fewer and less deep breaths, so blood O2 levels decline a bit. No big deal, nothing to worry about. ...Read more
R/O OSA: OSA can be suggested by history and physical. Excess snoring/daytime sleepiness/apneic episodes/ aM headaches. And the Exam obesity/small oral airway/collar size>18. The definitive test is a PSG with split night/CPAP titration. I would request copy of sleep study and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with the options. You are young CPAP can be difficult to tolerate. ENT FOR UPP EVAL. ...Read more

Cheyne-Stokes: This is abnormal and needs medical attention. Maybe heart or brain related. When you hyperventilate, you blow off excess C02. and at some point your brain/blood vessel receptors will sense that the balance of C02 and Oxygen in the body is not right anymore. Then breathing will stop for a period of time (apnea) as an attempt to correct the imbalance. If this occurs frequently it can be dangerous. ...Read more

What happens if you have a lot of anxiety and are hyperventilating, can smelling spring air make it seem worse?
Could a random full on panick attack with hyperventilating be the cause of something physically wrong with the body? Or is it always only mental?
Usually not: Panic attacks can be stimulated by a variety of triggers, physical, emotional and mental. The triggers are not always easily identifiable or clear. They can come out of nowhere and be triggered by sights, sounds, smells, emotional responses, etc. Hyperventilating without signs or panic or typical triggers can be from the body trying to blow off more carbon dioxide. This is unusual, however. ...Read more
