It all started 3 months ago when suddenly In office, I was feeling short of breath and was feeling that I am going to faint.  it lasted for few minutes and went away. It came back again after 3 days and since then I had severe shortness of breath on walking, eating, talking etc. I have made emergency visits to hospital as well where they took ecg and said all was normal. I have had ECG, Echo, TMT , lung function test, all blood tests which all came normal. Doctros are writing it off as Anxiety. After few weeks, I developed Sleep apnea due to this which is moderate at the moment.  I also get dull chest pressure in centre sometimes. Sometimes, when I sleep, I feel short of breath and wake up. Anyone had similar expericne.

    How many tests do you want,,, to tell you that you are O.K.  Have to ask ..... how do you know you are short of breathe if you are asleep.  Are you FAT or Thin ?  .

      I have developed some central apnea during this time and my sleep study said the oxygen during sleep is desaturating and going to 80 levels. I have frequent awakenings gasping for breath.
