Hi guys. My first time here. I woke up tonight with my heart beating extremely fast. I have never had it beat so fast. I thought for sure I was about to have a heart attack.

The reason I woke up was because my son started crying. Hes 1 year old. But this happens often and I've never had this happen with my heart.

I do believe I have some form of sleep apnea. Trouble breathing through my nose especially at night and I snore. I also have times where my body is asleep but mind awake and i stop breathing and have to fight very hard to wake up so I breathe finally. Its like being under water and you are fighting to reach the surface and when you finally do you take a huge gasp for air.

Its quite scary. But what happened tonight was a whole new occurrence. My heart was beating like a high hat so fast.

I saw some info online that was pretty helpful which explains how 80% of the night your heart rate and blood pressure are very slow and the other 20% when you are in a dream state it is faster. Also linking the heart rate to OSA.

Here is the link. Anyone have any advice?

hi, a sleep study is helpful, and is the only real way of a clear osas dx. everything is wired up and all sats are monitored. with rem cycles there are changes in hr. I utilize a cpap, and my sleep disorders were also dx as well. sleep maintenance insomnia and very acute sleep apnea. keep well.
