weird feeling when falling asleep...
« on: February 26, 2014, 01:43:07 PM »
i get this sometimes its very weird its like your throat kinda feels tight and you cant get a fall breath or like a missed breath. hard to explain its when i lay down flat to go to sleep i dont have it all the time thought. its really hard to describe, if anyone has or had this and knows what i am on about that would be cool.

I don't know if it's the same thing, but will it wake you up real fast when it happens?  To me it always felt like I was going to throw up (no nausea, nothing comes up in throat, nothing like that, but the throat just gets this weird feeling and I jump awake), it will only happen if I am laying on 2 pillows or something to watch TV, but like you said, laying FLAT it never happens.  It's such a weird feeling.  It's been happening for about 15 years, now it doesn't even scare me, I get it, then just turn around and pull the other pillow out from under my head.  I was then blaming it on GERD, but you describing it as a tightening of the throat was a good description.   I make sure I don't have anything pressing on my throat either like pushing a blanket up around my throat, something to that affect), THAT makes it worse.

I know what you're talking about and I get this too! It gets harder to focus on breathing  when I think about it
