I've had RSD for 4 years and I have only recently discovered that my breathing rate is almost double what it should be
Apparently when I am asleep it goes back into an almost normal rhythm
It has been put down the the RSD causing problems in the autonomic nervous system which governs things like breathing and heart rate (I also have syncope)
Hope this helps
To the World you may be one person, but to one person, you may be the World.
