I keep waking up and not being able to breath. I don't remember whether I can move my body when these episodes occur, because I'm half asleep. I know that it happens often and when it does, it lasts for about 10-20 seconds and it's severely distrubing my sleep. I'm twelve. Why is this happening?
Wow! Smart guy....this is common, are you eating before you go to bed? sometimes this can make you sleep restless. Sleep apnea is were a pereson stops breathing in their sleep during the night for a few seconds, this is usually people that are over weight or have a short neck, and they are almost always adults. Ask yourself.... do you feel tired during the day? If you feel full of energy as you should at 12, then you are just fine!!!
