Is this acid reflux - scared me to death
Last night I was awakened from a sound sleep by the feeling that I couldn''t breathe. I was gasping for air and leapt out of bed. In a few seconds I could breathe but not fully. It passed in about 2 minutes. I had a horrible acid taste in the back of my throat and I still have it tonight. My throat is sore too. This has happened to me about 4 times within the last year.
It's such a scary thing - I thought I was going to die. In searching the internet, this comes up as the closest match as an explanation for what happened. I have had an ulcer in the past but it hasn't bothered me in years.
Does it sound like acid reflux? It's so scary.
