Just to add to the chorus...

I've also had shortness of breath that I initially wrote off to anxiety - except that I wasn't anxious. Sometimes it just feels like I need more air, so I breathe in through my nose, and out through my mouth. Sometimes I'm so short of breath that I pant - this hasn't happened in a while.

I exercise regularly, and this doesn't happen when I exercise - it's always been when I'm fatigued, on the couch, and either just waking up or about to nod off.

When I called the neuro about it, I wasn't able to get through, but the nurse on station told me to call my PCP, as a virus was going around. Turns out it wasn't the virus - I just got that last month! So I know what that's like. Horrible!

It's taking me a long time to recover from it, and I believe it's because of my restricted breathing. I've always had a low lung capacity, going back to high school, but until I got MS I never thought it might be neurological.
