  • Hi Mouley, you will be okay. It's not a life threatening issue. It is the over stimulated nervous system that kicks in when we are asleep. Our muscles as we get fearful cause the diaphragm and throat muscles to tighten. Just try to take some deep breathes, telling yourself it will be okay and then let go and accept what's happening. Try not to fight it. Hopefully you will fall back to sleep. Peace & Calm
