I dont have an answer for you ..but just wanted to write for support. I am so sorry to hear this. Have you tried googling..'breathing from mouth'..that might give some other online resource/forum that may help with the problem.
I am so sorry..Hang in there.

I have been pondering this....

When I have an anxiety attack, I will find my pulse and regulate my breathing according to my pulse...I try to inhale deeply within three beats of my heart then exhale slowly using three beats of my heart as well. During this focused breathing I am telling myself that I am ok (on the inhale) and everything is alright (on the exhale).

I like frustrated ideas and I would like to add that after awhile of practicing the breathing through your mouth it will become natural. I am not comparing what I have to you because I know it isnt the same at all but I have severe allergies and asthma
