*Update : I had my surgery on tuesday and today is sunday. I already feel fully shifted! I feel like a normal person!! I can hold a conversation without losing my breath and locking up. I really feel when I am fully healed, and my swelling is done, this will have solved a lot of SA problems I had! I HIGHLY recommend you guys with SA to go to a ENT and check your tonsils and septum to see if your airways are blocked. Breathing is VERY important in life. I had breathing problems throughout my whole life which i think caused all my SA habits. So please, keep on trying to better yourself and BEAT SA!!!! You can do it guys!

Hi,
after almost a year, did your problems disappeared for good?
I will have septoplasty soon and I'm still thinking is this real cause of SA problems...

Thanks!

Sorry for the super late response, but yes! I have made huge strides I never thought I would along with the realization that I am still an introvert at heart even if I don't have as much breathing problems. Hope yours went well!

This is really encouraging I'm planning to have septoplasty done this year. I wasn't even considering how that would help me with social anxiety, but this thread gave me more hope. Thanks!

Huge progress! Life has just gotten a lot clearer and I'm more relaxed instead of being in a constant state of anxiety like I used to be.

I'm happy you discovered this then! I think breathing is a huge key to be happier and comfortable in life so anything I can do to improve it, I will fight tooth and nail to get it done. Please let me know how it goes!

what made you get it checked? was it only the breathing?

i once read most people have a deviated septum but don't know they have it. not sure what causes it? i'm only 23 but i considered having it a year ago. i breathe through my nose, not mouth, (when i'm awake at least...), but when i focus on it i feel like i can't get in as much air as i would like to. idk if it is only in my head, b/c it's not so bad that i would have to breathe through my mouth.

what is it about the tonsils that can cause breathing problem?
