i had an upper resp infection 14 weeks ago, it went away after 8 weeks but now i have this sensation in my throat of not getting enough air in my throat, especially when i am laying down in bed, had a series of cts, xrays, mri, 5 different drs and specialists, and no one can figure out what is wrong with me......one mri showed i have a herniated disk in my left neck, but the surgeon said it has nothing to do with the sensation i am getting in my chest/throat....when i bend over i get dizzy, my ears are full (had ct of sinus, came back with no ploblems, what is going on with me, its almost 5 months and i cannot function at all, have no energy, have to sleep in the recliner basically sitting up, feels like something is stuck way down in my throat/chest, horrible pains in head
please help me to understand what is going on, the doctors do not seem to know nor do they seem to look outside the box

Have you gained any weight or have a 15" neck?
If you lay down or bend, the added weight will close your airway and causes a lack of oxygen to the brain, hence causing night time seizures as well as morning tiredness, night sweats, lack of mental sharpness, etc.
This can be determined by a night time EEG.

This is a form of Sleep Apnea.
You might want to mention this to your Doctor, he/she may recommend sending you for a sleep study.?
