About 6 months ago I had a few nights where I stopped breathing as I fell asleep. My body jerked itself awake. I do have both asthma and anxiety so I figured it could have something to do with that but it went away. Recently, however, I've been having more difficulty breathing. Sometimes when I'm breathing and I exhale my body won't let me inhale for a split second. It's like my chest won't move to let me inhale or somethings blocking my airways but it only lasts for a second, if that. My family's also noticed that I've been breathing harder and when I try not to breathe so hard it feels like I'm barely getting air. It kind of feels like I'm breathing through a really small hole but I don't really feel anything tightening and my asthma has been triggered more easily than usual lately and I keep coughing a lot. Sometimes it does feel like theres mucus/phlegm in my throat but nothing coughs up. Using my inhaler does help sometimes but its a very temporary solution.
If anyone has any suggestions that'd be appreciated. Thank you!
