When I start to fall asleep I stop breathing then I wake gasping for air. It's VERY scary! While I'm waiting to see the DR what should I do?
I believe I have one form or another of sleep apnea. Regardless, this is a very scary, uncomfortable situation. Last night I didn't finally fall asleep until 4am because every single time I started to doze off I would start gasping for air, I felt like was suffocating. I DO NOT trust my doctor [and my insurance is only accepted by this office so I have no other options] but I made an appointment anyway. I have to wait 16 business days for my appt and even then I only get to see a nurse practitioner. if I wanted an actual doctor I'd have to wait 3.5 months. What should I do here? I'm really afraid. I've tried adjusting my sleeping positions but other than that idk what to do?
