What causes the uncomfortable physical sensation in your diaphragm after you've held your breath for a long time?

I know that after you've held your breath for a while, you get a signal from your brain that indicates your blood oxygen is low, and that you need to breathe again. But this doesn't feel like a strictly mental thing. It feels like something is happening physiologically too, in your diaphragm; it's some kind of discomfort, tension... Hard to describe. What, precisely, is happening? Or am I way off the mark and interpreting something that isn't actually there?

[ESPN] Curry’s second wind comes from his ability to lower his heart rate during short breaks, even in the middle of games. In workouts, his trainer places sandbag weights below his ribcage in order to overload, and train, his diaphragm. He can coax his heart rate below 80 in one 90 second timeout.

Super interesting article on Steph’s conditioning: https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/30742095/how-stephen-curry-organized-chaos-fuels-record-breaking-career-golden-state-warriors-rebuild

Some other relevant quotes:

> For Curry, a typical offseason workout looks something like this: Sporting a hilarious golfer's tan and usually some kind of colorful, prototype Under Armour sneaker, Curry flies through a nearly impossible, full-court version of the conventional star shooting drill. Designed by Payne, it consists of 10 shots -- from the corner, baseline and wing -- with full-court 94-foot sprints in between. And it must be done with a minimum 80% accuracy and in under 56 seconds or the drill repeats. Essentially it's the same drill run in nearly every basketball practice on earth, turbocharged to an absurd degree for Curry, whose year-round conditioning goal is to always be ready to take the floor within two weeks.

> Last offseason, when Curry did this workout at Stanford, several Division I players in attendance begged to join in on Payne's ultimate scoring-without-the-ball drill -- they all either collapsed from exhaustion or gave up halfway through. That's exactly what Payne expects, though, since the drill is designed specifically to challenge Curry's remarkable conditioning and unique skill set in order to prepare him for challenges like the one against Portland.

> "Steph's definition of conditioning is different than most," Payne says. "Lots of guys are in great shape. Can you be in the kind of great shape where you are fatigued after a long play like this and your quads are burning and you can't breathe but you can still maintain perfect mechanics and still make good decisions? Are you fatigued but can still execute at the highest levels? Because that's what truly matters.

Good posture vs diaphragm breathing

I used to have back problem and worked a lot on my posture. From the things I read core stability is very important.

Now instead I have acid reflux, and am recommended to relax my stomach and breath into it. Are those two advice contradictory? Or is there a way to have a braced core and at the same time breath into the stomach?

Reconnect to your body in a loving way to release diaphragm?

Hi all,

Since I've been trying to cope and heal through childhood trauma I have become aware of the self destructive habits I have formed around my body. I've began to see that this self destruction is an internalised way of dealing with unsafe/disorganized attachment and large revolves around me Psychically 'attacking' my own body. Meaning an internal critic or image of an internalised figure which attacks my body - my body being the symbol of; love/attachment/nurturing comfort/sexuality/sense of self/calm - all the things you've internalised from a loving attachment figure if it's healthy.

Now part of this comes with armouring of my body which has stored trauma (like Reich and Lowen) - and In particular my diaphragm.

I've began to see how I've mostly used my upper chest and back for breathing and up until last month I dit not know what diaphragmatic breathing and relaxationbreally was, when I experienced for 3 days what it's actually like to breathe with your diaphragm, before my diaphragm froze again.

Now this self of mine that is formed because of trauma is mostly hypervigilant, working excessively and always tries to improve and be top at everything (like a narcististic defence - not to feel the abandonment trauma) - this also affects how I relate to my body where I try to reach a perfect and painfree state, only making the contractions worse.

In the few moments where I managed to change my behaviour towards myself I began to see that that which is frozen relaxes naturally and in its own time if left to rest (so no need to change all the pain/discomfort/contractions) and diaphragmatic breathing becomes accessible.

Have any of you experienced the transition from hate to loving your own body and all its discomfort which are mostly psychosomatic pains and regained the ability to breathe with your diaphragm again? What dit you do and dit you use any 'excercises'?

Can THC cause a hyperactive diaphragm? (NOT CHS!)

So whenever I overindulge, I get wicked nausea (I’ve managed to stop overindulging but the damage seemed to have been done). As I’ve progressed through the years of daily smoking it has now chosen to stay & never go away. I’ve had stomach issues all my life so I’m wondering if it’s possible that excessive coughing every day for a good amount of time can cause your diaphragm to deteriorate? Or if smoking in general can bring out my irritated stomach after it’s anti-inflammatory properties have worn off? It is almost like a hunger pain, it is nowhere but the very top of my stomach below my esophagus.

I don’t smoke poppers (never have), and it always seems to line up when I wake up after a toke for sleep, or begin using my cartridge during my overnight shift. Weed shouldn’t cause this right? I’m sure it’s more complex than this? I cannot get help from my doctor so I just want to know if cutting out smoking while I wait is a good idea: which will be difficult because I use it for various issues I deal with daily (as well as the high, of course).

Self regulation: Diaphragm relaxes when I pull my nostrils. I am able to belly breathe. (Polyvagal explanation?)

Hi everyone,

So I have been a mouth breather all my life but only lately trying to see the link between this and high anxiety levels, stress and unsafe attachment every since I was little. I've been making a transfer from mouth breathing to nose breathing for the last two months and much has improved in my daily life and nose breathing methods also help with anxiety a lot.

There is however one thing about my inner nose that still is not allowing to take in all the oxygen I need through my nose. It feels like it is tight, and tightening up more when I breathe in. Like it is creating a vacuum on the inside by breathing in.

The strange thing however is that when I pull my nostrils forward it is gone. As if by pulling the nostrils I pull the tissue tight so it can't create a vacuum. And thus when I do this I am able to take the oxygen I need through my nose. It actually feels really pleasant to be able to take in so much air through my nose. Additionally, when I do this, my diaphragm seems to relax and I am able to do belly breathing more easily.

When I hold it for a longer period the following happens: I feel my throat relax and some kind of gag reflex starts, after some seconds my diaphragm starts relaxing and i can breathe into my pelvic floor rather than upper chest. So I was thinking that a frozen diaphragm, knots in my stomach and throat are all due to CPTSD and this creates the vacuum in my nostrils. And that this pulling of my nose is sort of resetting my system (as some polyvagal Excercises do) to a new 'safe mode'

I was wondering however, if anyone could have an explanation for this on a physiological and emotional level? And maybe has a similar experience?

Arduino is not switching 12v Relay module on and off to control 12v diaphragm pump

I am building an irrigation system that will water my plants every week while I am away travelling for a month. And I'm sorry guys, but I am pretty inexperienced, and don't know how to draw schematics, so I will try to explain my current layout as simply as possible...

The problem I am having is that the Arduino is not switching the relay on and off.

FYI β€” I have separate 12v power supplies for both the 12v relay module and the 12v diaphragm pump.

Overall wiring layout: https://imgur.com/XwWvY2k

Code for project: https://imgur.com/ZrMJ75J

Wiring for Arduino:

  • Power comes from USB-B in
  • Jumper cable from Digital (PWM) pin 7 to the 12v relay's IN1

Wiring for 12v relay module (has its own 12v pwr supply):

  • 12v Relay Module Wiring layout: https://imgur.com/3r53tKA
  • Positive connection from 12v pwr supply goes to DC+
  • Negative connection from 12v pwr supply goes to DC-

Wiring for diaphragm pump (has its own 12v pwr supply):

  • Positive connection from the pump's 12v power supply goes to the relay's COM
  • The pump's positive terminal goes to the NO1
  • The pump's negative terminal goes to the negative connection from it's own 12v power supply

Any help and tips are always greatly appreciated!

I've started doing Sound Vibration Meditation, which is when you repeat a word or mantra, but say it loud. You try to speak from your diaphragm, and move the vibrations that come when you speak around your body. I've found it peaceful. Has anyone else done something like this?

Others may call this something else. I think some may even call this mantra meditation.

I'm interested in hearing your experiences if you've done this or something similar.

Diaphragm pump still allows water to pass through, even when switched off by Arduino.

So I have one 12v diaphragm pump that is supposed to water three plants every week while I am away for a month.

I made the one tube from the pump's outlet split into three using 3 barbed tees. I then have the end of that tube feed back into the reservoir, to prevent spillage.

The Arduino switches ON a relay, which allows the pump to water for 15 seconds.

The thing is that when the Arduino switches the relay OFF, there is still water passing through the diaphragm pump, which is causing my plants to be overwatered.

I put the water reservoir and the pump beneath the plants so that gravity will force the water back down, but it didn't work.

The plumbing is by far the most difficult part of this project...

What am I doing wrong?

Want to REALLY feel the diaphragm?

Take a deep breath, and don’t stop inhaling.

Once you get to the top of your breath, keep the inhalation muscles activated. After 20 seconds or so, your diaphragm will start burning like when you work out a muscle.

Exercises to help diaphragm support?

The title. Recently, I've been having several issues with my singing that are likely a result of my diaphragm/breath support having gotten lazy, and I really need to keep my voice in good form. I'm consulting my voice coach, but he won't be able to help me around the clock, so if anyone has some good exercises to help with diaphragmatic breath and support, that would be great.

Diaphragm breathing not making sense

I tried appogio. Breathing from my lowest part of stomach and back and pushing out when singing. Relaxed. I tried each and everyway to breath from my diaphragm and all It feels like is just im pushing out my stomach and its unaffected my voice or changed it. Putting all the tensions there and no tension anywhere else and it doesn't feel like its controlling my breath. I even tried breathing through my chest. Honestly I wana give up on singing because I tried 20 different videos and none of them is working. I don't feel in control of my breath. The only way I can control it is through saying tsss with my mouth letting out little air but when I stop doing that and control it with my diaphragm I cant.. any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Diaphragm Pain on Empty Stomach

I've had a diagnosed hiatal hernia for over 10 years which causes me all sorts of issues with chest pain, acid reflux, and often pain right around my solar plexus. For the past two years though, sometimes if I don't eat right away in the morning (side effect of getting two kids ready for school), I get a band of excruciating pain across the bottom of my rib cage where my diaphragm is.

I don't have this all the time, just a couple of times a month maybe, and eating something usually helps it feel mostly better with the pai still being present but down to maybe a 2 instead of the extreme it was at previously.

Have any of you had a similar experience and know what is causing it? My gallbladder was removed 8 years ago so it's not a gallbladder attack, but I'm wondering if maybe it's related to sleeping position or foods I ate the night before. I sleep elevated but sometimes I end up scootched down a bit. And I typically take an acid reducer at bedtime (tums, gaviscon, etc.) as well as a dexilant in the morning.
