How are you just noticed your post
are you feeling any better what progress have you made?
did the doctor find something and if so what?
is yours similar to mind in any way
interesting to compare with others
background info, I am 5fooot 2.5 inches tall, and weight 8stone 10 lbs. age 48.
had this for years, did not have it as a child.
dont get this very often though but when i do get it there is no warning when i go to bed that it is going to happen and like you, feel like i have not breathed in a long time.
when you try to breath after this, do you feel its hard to get the air in?
thats its blocked off and little space to get the air in?
do you get the same as me, next thing to happen after you have got little bits of air in is for you to start coughing, then you have all this stuff like a tap has been turned on pour down the back of your neck? this stuff is then blocking your airway and making it even more difficult to get your breath! eventually it settles down, but you could not get help at first as you cant get enough air in to move, you think you are going to die if you dont get air in and its been all blocked off.
are you the same, what exactly happens to you?
i can tell you it so clearly as it has happend loads of times over teh years now, but only about 4 times or so a year.
how often do you get it?
how manys years has it happened for?
have you been to the doctors or dont want to go?
another thing i find and this is a seperate issue, is when i have a bath, like baths, i do like the water hot and lie in it, i generally put a bit more cold in before long as too hot, but when i get out, my heart is racing, out of breath, feel weak, but this always happens to me again for years and years, if in the house, have towel on still and have a lie down or sit down. if i put my hand on my chest my heart is beating very strong and very fast. presume due to the water being hot, dont really know. but this always happens to me.
the only tablets i take is thyroxine, taken that for about 9 years and also allergy tablets, tend to take 180mg of telfast, but sometimes change them as dont want them to get used to me, but all common allergy tablets, i get these on prescription so doctor aware of them. as have uticaria and chronic rhinitis, or at least they say i do. dont take the nasal spray but sometimes taket his in the summer with the hayfever season.
its nice to chat to you, hope you are not too bad.
To make matters worse, I am allergic to some or other medicine but am afraid that if they stop it or change it I may again experience being out of oxygen.
Hey just found what you have said to be interesting. I have something similar well i think. I have died in my dreams many occasions only to wake up as normal not gasping for air though. I have just gotten used to it at this point cause its regular but would love some kinda answers.
