At times, while sleeping, I'll wake up with the feeling that I can't breath. I feel as if I have to gasp for air. This usually happens about two to three hours after I go to sleep. If I sit up or get up and go for a walk, it straightens out. My aunt has this same problem lately. For me, I have discovered these last few days that if I stay away from dairy products within 4 hours of going to sleep, it doesn't happen. For both of us, there is a feeling of fullness at the point where the throat connects to the chest. For me, it's as if there is a small pillow in there stuck. There is no acidy feeling, no chest pain, no rapid heartbeat. Just a feeling of lack of air. For my aunt, she feels as if she can't exhale very well. As for me, I am a bit overweight. As for her, she is at the proper weight, perhaps a bit under. She has also had thyroid cancer, but this stuffyness feeling is lower than that was.:eek:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
