hey i was wondering if anyone has the same symptoms
When i fall asleep i wake up suddenly as if someone slammed a door, than i fall back asleep then the same thing.
When i wake up my hr is a lil elevated 95-105 but then goes back to normal sometimes there is a shortness of breath. im going for a sleep study to see if sleep apnea is the problem.
I've had that too, woke up feeling like I had been holding my breath, like a startle, usually just as I drift off. It comes and goes for me. It's never stuck around long enough for me to get in for a sleep study, and my wife says she didn't notice snoring or gasping. Rather odd, but I've never been able to get to the bottom of it.
I get that too. I wake up sometimes still feeling like I'm not breathing or wake up gasping and it is always as I am drifting off to sleep. ( I look at the clock and it always seems to be within the first 30 minutes after I lie down). It comes and goes. I can go months without it happening and then it can happen every night for a while.
