Hyperventilation & Me...

From Wikipedia:

"Hyperventilation can, but does not necessarily cause symptoms such as numbness or tingling in the hands, feet and lips, lightheadedness, dizziness, headache, chest pain, slurred speech and sometimes fainting, particularly when accompanied by the Valsalva maneuver. Sometimes hyperventilation is induced for these same effects. Hyperventilation can sometimes be self-induced for moments of needed focus and adrenaline."

"Causes: Stress or anxiety commonly are causes of hyperventilation; this is known as hyperventilation syndrome. Hyperventilation can also be brought about voluntarily, by taking many deep breaths."

Bah. Right now I feel like I'm hyperventilating over some stuff.
I could use a paper bag the next time I go out.

Or perhaps really soon.
