I have been struggling with sleeping problems for the past 5 years. It has gotten worse within the past couple of years. I have a hard time relaxing at night. I also develop pains, such as in my abdominal area and that makes me worry. Also, I woke up from a nap with a pounding heart and feeling short of breath. I am under a pretty decent amount of stress. Tomorrow is my final for my first summer class and I am under pressure because I need to do well in order to get the grade I want. I did not do too well on the other tests. I need advice on managing stress. Does this happen to anyone else? Another thing is like I will be sitting in class and I will be fine for a bit and then suddenly something hits me like I'm going to faint or I'm going to stop breathing. Due to all this worry, I can only assume that it is anxiety. All of the tests that I have ever had done have come back normal. I was experiencing some of these symptoms during my sleep study and EEG, so I am hoping that something was found because I want this resolved.
