It's very unlikely.

Worst case, you may pass out. Once you do, your body will recover.

Assuming you are in good physical health, then it is unlikely anything bad will happen. Feeling that you can't breath occurs often during an anxiety or panic attack. You may get tingly hands or fingers and even pass out. It's a reaction to the change in oxygen and carbon dioxide balance in your blood stream as a result of hyperventilating.

Anxiety attacks are not usually a result of a physical issue. Sometimes, especially when you're young, these things happen. The body fears that something bad will happen and that feeling escalates out of control. It can manifest itself in physical symptoms.

Starting with a checkup is a good idea though, just to rule things out.

Hang in there guest, I've been there. You will get past this.
