Did I stop breathing in My Sleep?

I had this strange experience on 02-04-01. I've asked numerous people to help me figure this out and no one could. I decided to ask all of you, and see what some of you had to say about this.

I can't really remember the dream but I do remember floating. I was floating through the air and I could see below me. I didn't know the people I was watching and I don't remember exactly what I was doing. The strange thing is when I WOKE up I felt like I wasn't breathing. It felt like I was under water for a period of time and When I reached the top for air I just gasped. Thats how it was when I woke up. I had to gasp for air. I felt cold and I couldn't stop coughing, my lungs hurt so bad it felt as if someone had squeezed all the air out of them. It took me about 5 minutes to stop coughing and feel half way normal. I don't know how to explain this but I don't ever want to go through this again. If anyone has any explaination about this, please tell me.

How it changed my life:

It didn't change my life. I just can't stop thinking about it.

Halloween is Right around the corner.. .

Date: 2/6/2001 10:34:00 AM  From Authorid: 25650    Honestly, I don't know how to interperet this. Maybe
it's a fear you have, I don't know. I'm sorry, I haven't been much help.
Date: 2/6/2001 10:46:00 AM  From Authorid: 15014    I have had this same experiance, only I've never dreamed I was floating above my body. I've woke up and felt like I had stopped breathing, I had to gasp to get my breath back. I've had it happen to me more then once. I think it might be some type of sleep apnea. (I don't think I spelled apnea right) I've had the experiance of my lungs hurting and coughing to clear my lungs, but like I said, I've never had the floating experiance. I think that might have just been part of your dream. It certainly did scare me too. The first few times that it happened I thought I must be dying or something, but I've done it many more times since then, and I'm still here. I hope this helps.

Date: 2/6/2001 11:29:00 AM  From Authorid: 11528    This could be a common but dangerous occurance which is called "SLEEP APNIA". I'm not sure on the spelling but that is what it sounds like. My brother suffers from this. Fortuneatly His wife is a nurse and spotted the fact that He temporarily stops breathing in His sleep. He went to a sleep clinic and they confirmed it. Now He sleeps with a small mask on that pumpos oxygen into His body. He is feling much better and rested as a result. Sleep apnia leaves You feeling tired and weak after a full nights rest because You arent getting enough oxygen. Do a search on the web for this condition and if it keeps occuring to You then perhaps You should spend a night at a sleep clinic. Thay will monitor Your sleep and breathing while You sleep and can correct the problem.
