Can't breathe for short time after hitting/falling on my back

Hi all. I have this thing, It happen around 4-5 times to me. The first time i was playing around on a mattress when I was little with a friend, he jumped on my back or on me i think it was and I couldn't breathe for around 10-20 seconds. Other times I cant really remember but I think i got a pat on a back and it happen.

I can't breathe for like 10-20 sec like I said. After trying hard with my nose/mouth trying to take small breaths but nothing. Its like breathing ways get blocked and cant even breathe in. I didn't go to doctor because my parents think it's nothing or faking it.

Once happen when i was in school like i said i got a pat on the back, friends tried to hit my back again after i got this but it didnt help or anything.

Do you guys know whats going on? If i go to a doctor what do i tell him ? And what if it happens again and won't get my breath back

Re: Can't breathe for short time after hitting/falling on my back

It's commonly known as "getting the wind knocked out of you." It's very common in athletics to have this happen. You'll often see a football player get "winded" and be lying on the ground when his teammate will grab him by the shest pad and jerk him up and own a few times to start his lungs again. You just seem to be very sensitive to these bumps. The next time you go in for a check up, just mention it to the doctor and get his take on it.
