Smile Gasping for breath and whole body jerking

I have severe COPD and on oxygen 24/7. Recently I have noticed that I will unknowingly gasp for breath. This can be during sleep or awake. My eyes have a tendancy of looking up when this happens. I have also notice that without meaning to, my whole body will jerk, just bounce in the air. This usually occurs when I'm laying down. Any idea why this is occurring. I have stage 1A lung cancer 1 year, 4 months ago. Get CAT scans every three months. Lost 2 lopes in right lung.
