Waking up choking and gasping for air


Posted by Tracey Hodgson on February 10, 2001 at 21:51:09:

After the birth of my third child 31/2 years ago I started waking up through the night choking and gasping for air every 1-2 weeks for about six months, after that it has been every couple of months.I only have one episode at a time. I am about to go see my doctor as it is very terrifying. I am starting to panic when ever I go to sleep as I do not know when the next episode will be. Is there anybody else out there who suffers from episodes like this?
