I'm trying to see why I take two sudden involuntary gasp for air I never no when I'm gonna do it it just happens and it's always 2. It use to do it only when I got really sleepy or just falling asleep but literally I do it several times a day and night while I'm wide awake. It scares me bc it's like I feel fine then all of a sudden I just gasp two big gasp for air and it feels like when I do it maybe my heart skips a beat it Def does something does anybody might no what this means bc it gets worst over time
