The repetitive Stress and Anxiety will cause panic attack resulting in OCD (in my case short breathing). The Panic attack will cause you to do repetitive actions (OCD) which are danger to your own. The solution lies in doing just the opposite .

I felt that the panic attack issue is because of solitary lifestyle and when we are leading completely relaxed lifestyle. This could be when we start to monitor ourselves/our bodies too closely.
1) STOP BEING ANXIOUS. Put complete stop to anything that causes you to be anxious.


2) BE BRAVE AND INSTRUCT YOURSLEF NOT TO PANIC AT ANY COST. Act like a brave adult.
Key here is to continue INSTRUCTING yourself not to panic and that all is going to be well soon. Remember, you have probably forgotten how to behave on certain fear/panic Situations. Ask yourself that what if you were normal person then what would be your reaction. Or take help of others (normal healthy people) to find what they would do if they faced same fear/panic Situations.
3) EXIT YOURSELF, What I mean is that just forget YOURSELF. Stop monitoring or looking at yourself too closely. Too much self monitoring is not really good. Take it easy.
From now on you will look at everything around you but not at you. Go out and make yourselves busy. Remind yourself consistently that this short breathing is in fact a FAKE and is not real in fact. If it was real then it would be affecting you all time and not only when you are relaxed. Remember that it does not affect you when you are in motion or busy.
4) Learn to take pain as part of your life, also you must instruct YOURSELF to give your health issues enough time to cure them. Do not haste or panic et al. Wait for issue to get resolved. Or sometimes you must accept that issue is probably your part of life from now on.
5) OCD are resolved when you just do opposite of them. Just stop doing them and you will realize that it was as simple as that. The solution to repetitive behavior is just ignoring them and putting a complete stop to performing them.
6) Any repetitive behavior that starts bothering you is defined as STRESS. You must try to put a stop or hold it to see the results. Normally just stop doing it will give you desired results.
