I miss my breath which wakes me up from sound sleep
This has happened 3 or 4 times during past one month. I suddenly wake up from sound sleep because I miss my
breath. After I wake up breathing is again normal and don't have any other problem. I don't loose my sleep also.
But it worries me. It started only recently. I have not found any particular relation to any eating habit or any thing.
I am 57. I don't have any known ailment. Recently I got comprehenssive medical checkup.
I am not taking any medicines either. I occassionaly take no-veg, alcohol, very very occassionaly. I have excellent health otherwise.
Then why should I miss my breath. It happens only during sleep.
Sleep with your chest and head propped up higher on your pillow and see if that helps. If it does you may have a simple acid reflux problem, which is coming from your digestive tract. Try taking an antacid before going to sleep.
Or you may just have sleep apnea, if the above doesn't help.
