My Mood: Difficult to Describe...

I know sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night gasping for breath and I have pain in my upper back but I know that it's not any type of typical back pain. I'm real familiar with back pain. What's weird is that I'll be having some weird dream and that's when I wake up. Also sometimes (a lot of times) I'll have a dream where I'll need to yell at someone to alert them to some type of danger.....but nothing comes out no matter how hard I try. I'm mean it's really weird.

I'm thinking I need to be checked for Sleep apnea. I dunno....
It went ok for the sleep study. But the daytime naps they had me do didn't go too well. They had me do 4, of which I slept in the first and third attempts but couldnt the second and fourth ones. Room was cold lol

Default Hard to describe

I used to have something like this when I was about 7 and intermittently since then. It starts when I am still asleep but lasts for some time after I wake up. Its a rare thing and usually triggered by a nightmare I can't remember. Its a lot like the feeling of being trapped, and of there being insurmountable danger. Its similar to a panic attack but there is a weird pressure feeling. It is difficult to be alone and have one of these because of the intense fear.

A friend of mine suffered from this after coming off strong anti depressants so I would say it's related to depression.

Red face

To make things even more unbearable I have moved into a place that doesn't allow smoking. That's my only relief I get. Now they are pressuring me to quit.

I'm up now but feel exhausted. I'm going to have a cup of chamomile tea and try to calm down. I'm really at the end of my rope.

That pain in your back is your heart Zatochi.
