feel like cant breath

Im not sure what to do or whether it is dangerous or not
but sometimes i cant inhale from my heart or my chest I feel a deep pain
I just keep on exhaling till I cant breathe anymore
It happens like every couple of months and I asked my friends dont know anything about it

I guess my question is...should I be worried? Do these symptoms sound dangerous? Has anyone else experienced these? Have you talked to a doctor?

ANYTHING would be very helpful! Thank you!

Can't really say what is causing it, could be important or could be nothing but you should go and see a doctor and get checked out.  Just try to describe as much as you can about what happens, what you feel and when it happens.  Best of luck sorting it out.

It sounds like a classic panic attack.  I would suggest you google this:

Symptoms panic attack

If what you read does not describe anything you experience, then see a general practitioner for an evaluation.
