I only discovered this site now. I am in deperate need for answers...I am constantly yawning and it feels that I am not getting enough oxygen in my lungs. I have to take constant deep breaths to satisfy my need for oxygen. Did you receive any answers to your problem?
I hope this might help someone. I have been suffering from similar symptoms for about 10 months. I always felt like I had to yawn and couldn't get a satisfying breath. My neck, back, & chest were always sore. After tons of research and trying different things, I found something called "Chronic Hyperventilation Syndrome". I didn't feel like I was hyperventilating, but when I looked up the symptoms, it was like a check list of everything I had been feeling. There is a book called "Self Help for Hyperventilation Syndrome" written by Dinah Bradley. I picked one up on Amazon for about $12. She gives breathing excercises that retrain your body to breath from your diaphram. I was totally shocked that within 1 week of doing the excercises my yawning was gone. It has been 2 months now and no more frequent yawning. I am still dealing with the tension in my neck & upper back, but she also recommends doing relaxation techniques to get rid of that. I wish I could have found this information months earlier. I hope this helps someone!
