what is wrong with me? Having trouble breathing

What does this sound like to you. For that past few months. Everytime I fall sleep I wake up to catch my breath because I can't breath then I can't swollow and have to sit straight up to breath again so I have a hard time falling sleep at night. I sleep on my left side because if I sleep on my right side I go numb on that side. I sleep with my mouth open and closed and still I do this. If I fall sleep on the couch I do it as well at night, but if I fall asleep during the day I don't do this. But now today is the first time, but I am having a hardtime breathing today I keep having to take deep breaths to breath. I ztarted smoking again last summer, but since this today I am not smoking anymore. What does this sound like to you?

  • You need to see your doctor, don't ask us to diagnose a problem for the doctor, no two ways about you need to see a doctor!

  • I was going to say sleep apnea, but because its now happening during the day time as well, I could be the more serious central sleep apnea. Basically your brain forgets to tell you to breathe. You definitely need to go see a doctor.

  • Take the kids with you, find a doctor that is open on the weekends, go to a clinic when the kids are home from school and your husband is home to take you, call a friend for a ride, call your family. Just stop making excuses and go!
