Default Re: Shortness of breath

I don't personally have any recent experiences with a panic disorder, but I do have GAD and I can tell you that shortness of breath is EXTREMELY common in people with anxiety-related illnesses.
I've taken hydroxyzine, but I know my doctor has always been against it because it's easy for your body to get too accustomed to it. Have you asked your doc about all this? I think he would be the best person to talk to.
Knowing you mentioned autism, I can understand it might be a bit harder for you to talk to people about this stuff in real life -- but I think it would definitely be a good idea to talk to a school nurse or your doctor if you notice any shortness of breath or chest pain outside of your panic attacks.

Hope this helps!
