Involuntary prolonged pursed lip breathing

Recommended Posts


I've had involuntary pursed lip breathing for over a year and it's maddening.  I think it's the body's way of dealing with anxiety, but it makes me more anxious as it never stops.  I breathe in normally through the nose and then exhale through the mouth through pursed lips with an audible sound.  It's very annoying to others....they wonder what's wrong with me.  I've had to isolate because of it since I can't stop it. 


Sometimes I think I'll go crazy.  Does anyone else have this?  I've never seen it mentioned so think I must be the only one.  I hoped it might stop as I get lower in dose, but it doesn't.  I'm afraid it's permanent and that I'll always be this way.  I'm so very afraid.
