friday Posted October 2, 2007 Report Share Posted October 2, 2007 Right now I am having trouble getting to sleep because sometime I have trouble breathing and I'll wake right as I'm drifting off because of a tightness in my throat. *been tested for sleep apnea so it' s not that* I try not to focus on it, it's just hard to get back to sleep after you were just jolted awake and your heart is pounding.I would like to find a way to deal with these weird feelings because most stuff doesn't seem very treatable. I'll also get scared when I suddenly feel weak for no reason. just feels like the life is draining out of me. I hate that feeling so much. Some night's I don't feel sleepy as I I fall asleep so much as weak. And then I try and let it take over and just go with it so I can fall asleep. Not the most restful way to sleep.I guess I have a harder item with it because my brother died in front of me a few years ago. and he had similar symptoms. I know it' s not the same as him but my mind can' t forget what happened either. As soon as I feel the breathing things I think of him. I don't do it consciously . It's just a knee jerk reaction. same thing with the weakness or numbness when it happens all of a sudden I get scared, in a knee jerk reaction way. Ten I have to try to deal with going back to sleep when my heart is racing. I've been checked out thoroughly and I know it' s not anything dangerous. I really wish I could just turn that reaction stuff off.I was just wondering how others deal with the scary symptoms you have? What kinds of ways do you have to cope. What kinds of self talk helps you? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
