Sleep apnea or panic attack?

I posted earlier cuz I couldn't sleep. I dozed back off to sleep to wake up from Smth scary. I woke up and automatically run outside to the door for help because my heart was POUNDING SO FAST it felt like I couldn't breath as if I stopped breathing in my sleep! And my body was kinda tingly.

It does pass but it's a horrible scary experience that always got me almost calling 911. This has happened to me a few times before. I usually wind up falling back asleep with no problems but now I'm scared to 🙄😪

Can't tell if it's apnea & stop breathing in my sleep or not
