Waking up not being able to catch a breath



May 30, 2018
Hi all
Last night was the first time in ages this has happened I woke up a couple times not being able to catch a breath and then I had one really bad episode where I couldn't catch my breath my heart started beating very fast and I think it was because I started to panic. But then after that I slept for 5 hours straight and it didn't happen
Anyone have any ideas on this

I had once strong anxiety and stress so I woke up unable to breath few times, but it has never come back again. If it doesn't continue in your case, then I think better just to forget about it for now.
