I stop breathing while falling asleep.
Just as my body relaxes and I begin to fall asleep, I find myself not breathing. Sometimes I do fall asleep and wake up breathing fast. I then begin relaxing and my breathing slows down; I feel myself wanting to breath, but my body won’t until I “wake” myself up enough to breath again.
I have a bi-pap machine for moderate sleep apnea, but I do it with machine on. I can’t use a c-pap because I feel as though I’m being suffocated.
I was born not breathing. My apgar scale was 1 after 1 min. They did cpr for 20 min. before I began breathing on my own.
Anyone else with similar problems?
