Gasping for air when dozing off to sleep?
I've had this problem for about 3 years more or less now. I've looked online for solutions, and found a bunch of theory's but no solutions. No one truly knows what causes this or what helps this. not even doctors. doctors will say, it's sleep apnea but i have absolutely no signs of that. this is what i have.
Multiple times a night, when i try to sleep. The second, i doze off i jerk awake in a mode of panic, and it feels like my breath was sucked out of my lungs. My heart starts racing.
After i relax again, and drift off to sleep, the second i drift it happens again.
I use to be afraid of going to sleep, but now it happens so much i expect it.
Now i toss and turn all night, trying to get a good nights sleep.
This happens about 20 times a night. anyone show similar signs?
