Lots of threads/posts about not sleeping due to asthma which is massively annoying, and huge sympathy for that esp night after night.
But just wondering if anyone else gets asthma symptoms at night but doesn't really wake up properly, or at least is not aware of waking up? Had this last night - asthma has been bad in the last few days, bad today and last night had feeling during dreams of really tight chest and trouble breathing - fairly often through the night.
A few weeks ago I was definitely waking up - not for hours but dipping in and out and it was driving me crazy. That's the worst it's been sleepwise (seemed to be stopped waking up that much by Atrovent before bed) but I quite often seem to feel tight-chested and SOB in dreams (could just be thinking about it I guess) and then find it hard to wake up, feeling like I've not had enough sleep. I wondered if actually I'm not getting as much sleep as I think or as good quality sleep because of night-time asthma, but not really noticing this because I don't tend to wake up fully? Anyone else find this?
