The Nijmegen Questionnaire (NQ) gives a broad view of symptoms associated with dysfunctional breathing patterns.
A score of over 23 out of 64 suggests a positive diagnosis of hyperventilation syndrome. If you score below 23 but have three or more in the Often and/or Very Often column, this can indicate a breathing pattern disorder rather than Chronic Hyperventilation.
NB – the scoring and attached assessment sheet have been abbreviated with permission from the author by BradCliff - for ease of scoring and clarity around symptoms.

Breath holding and i-hunch postures affect your breathing.
It only takes 24 hours to change a pattern for it then to potentially become habitual.
