I have a sleep study scheduled for April. I am having more and more episodes of awakening unable to breathe. I do not awaken gasping. Instead I awake feeling as though my breathing muscles are paralyzed somehow. I sit p in panic and slowly my ability to breathe returns. I hvae experienced sleep apnea in the past and it seemed different from this. Does anyone else get this? I just feel as though I am falling apart with these breathinmg problems and arrhythmias and all kinds of other neuro problems. I am afrid of what each day will bring and that is no way to live.
