I'm really kind of freaked out and afraid. I was tired this afternoon and decided to lay back on the couch to rest. I closed my eyes and began to drift off. Then suddenly I jumped up feeling like I couldn't breath. There was heaviness to my chest and I felt like I couldn't take in a deep breath. It didn't last long, only seconds or a minute at most. But it really has me scared and I'm afraid to lay down again even though I'm really tired.
This happened once before maybe a month or more before. I was asleep at the time. It was early morning and I woke up suddenly feeling like I couldn't get a good breath. I blew it off and tried to get back to sleep but it happened everytime I was drifting off to sleep. I got up and was afraid to try to get back to sleep. It hadn't happened since then until today.
I decided to go out for a walk about an hour afterwards because I was sort of panicking thinking something was wrong with me. I figured if I could go for a walk, then I was fine and I didn't have any problems. So I guess it couldn't be anything physically wrong. Right?
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Do you think it is just Panic? ANy advice?
