Okay, here goes.
about 4 months ago, I began waking up in the middle of the night, GASPING for air, and the fear that my heart had stopped, I DO have anxiety, health anxiety, centered around, you guessed it, my heart.
Ive had an echocardiogram and holter monitor, I go to get an event monitor next week just to put my mind at ease, seeing as the cardiologist says im ok, so im trying to convince myself of that!
Anyway, these "episodes" have happened 4 times, last night being the last.
except last night, felt different, I felt almost dazed after/while it happened, which it happens quick, I gasp, my heart starts pounding, I go into a panic, try to talk myself out of it, then go back to bed.
When I woke up, I realized I sounded/felt very "wheezy", I went to Urgent Care tonight, I have been diagnosed with a Viral Upper Respiratory Infection with Asthma.
I DID have Asthma when I was younger, but, never realized it doesn't fully go away..
Could these episodes, especially lastnights be due to the Asthma?
Thanks for Reading this far!!
