I just gave birth 3 days ago, and am having a horrible time sleeping. Of course, I am EXHAUSTED, but everytime I try to go to sleep, I feel like my throat is closing off and I wake with a start, lacking breath.
I had this exact thing happen after my 1st pregnancy as well, except those "sleep apnea" symptoms happened during the end of my pregnancy as well.
I went to see a doctor then and he said I had sleep apnea, but why would it only be for a week or two after my pregnancy and at no other time?? (this was how long I had those symptoms after giving birth) I don't think I can stand to have another 2 weeks like I did then. It was horrible being so exhausted, yet unable to sleep. Anyone know anything about this? :(
