Default Feeling like I can't breathe? Not necessarily Worried?

Last night around 8:00, I felt like my throat was closing up and I felt like I was having trouble breathing. I didn't know what was going on considering I have not expierenced this in about 10 years.

I took my Ativan, it didn't do much but I was able to fall asleep.

I felt fine in the morning.

Tonight around 7:30 half an hour after taking my night meds, it started again. I'm not particularly worried about it tonight. It's more annoying tonight. I keep on taking deep breaths with my mouth open though. Sometimes I feel like I'm forgetting to breathe.

I'be been taking the same meds for at least 3 years. I'm not taking anything over the counter, or eating anything I haven't eaten before.

My anxiety in general has been fine. I've been feeling pretty great actually, and not all that stressed.

Could it be allergies? I have all the windows open and I do have allergies. I don't have any pain except for a couple twinges in my back.

I am on these medications

Geodon
Lamictal
Propalanol
Seasonal.

Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?

It could be allergies, but it sounds like anxiety. For the past month I've had throat tightness from anxiety...it's really annoying.

Do you think it could be anxiety about your upcoming dental appointment or have you already had that?

If not the allergies, it could be the beta blocker you're taking. Or the interaction of both.

I have not gone to the dentist yet.

I wasn't thinking of anything that would cause anxiety. I just felt like my throat was closing up all of a sudden. I'm assuming it was my anxiety. It's just weird because I wasn't anxious at the time, and I have not expierenced this type of anxiety since 2007.
