In brief: Great Question

Anxiety can cause quick breathing and a sensation of "air hunger".
However, sometimes medical conditions can contribute to shortness of breath. Please see your physician so you can be evaluated. Hope this answer helps.

In brief: Please see a doc

Anxiety can cause shortness of breath, however you could also have a simultaneous lung problem such as asthma.
You should see your doctor for physical, chest xray and possibly spirometry.
