This is my first post I have ever done. I'm not one to ask for help and this is quite hard to do for me. I love being able to help others and have commented on many other posts. I have suffered anxiety for almost 5 years. There is so much to my story I won't bother you all with but I would like to seek advice on something that happened to me last night for the first time ever. I would like to note that I am currently suffering a terrible bout of health anxiety, I had a baby 4 months ago, traumatic birth and suffer physical symptoms every day that I worry about.
I believe I had just been asleep only briefly and I woke up not being able to breathe. It felt like I hadn't been breathing for a while therefore I was extremely dizzy and physically shaking all over. I was trying very hard to just take a breath and it felt like I couldn't. It felt like my throat had closed up. I managed to rush into the room my partner was asleep in and wake him up. My breathing obviously came right and I was left uncontrollably shaking.
Has anyone ever experienced this?
Many thanks for reading
