Can anxiety cause respiratory problems?

Hyperventilation is the primary cause of most respiratory problems from anxiety. The word itself means "over-breathing." This is one of the reasons that people develop panic attacks, because they continue to hyperventilate more and more and experience a gradual worsening of symptoms.

Can difficulty breathing be caused by anxiety?
