I suffer with a few sinus arrthmyias including palpitations and tachycardia. I've been checked by two cardiologists and both agreed that I am ok. Last night, something really strange happened to me. I'm hoping for some advice. Thank you
The scariest thing happened to me. I don't think I was even asleep, it felt like it was those first few moments after you wake up. But I literally felt like I was dying. This is a weird analogy, but you know how when you go to the bathroom and if you have to push really hard..the pressure goes to your head, your upper body stiffens and you're like holding you breath in a sense. Well that's what it felt like and throughout my whole body. As if I was holding my breath for too long. Then I couldn't breathe at all, literally as if I was suffocating. It felt like I was dying to the point I actually tried to lift my hand to check my pulse on my neck. My chest felt tingly and still. Almost like a never ending palpitation. I'm thin I can always feel my heart beating, now I couldn't. But I couldn't move my body at all. I was just kind of able to move my head. I tried to call for my mom or dad but I wasn't breathing so I couldn't even talk. Went to reach for my phone to call and couldn't do that either. It felt like an outer body experience. Then I just snapped out of it and coughed a little to clear my breathing. It's so hard to explain what happened but I tried. Ive read about sleep paralysis and it doesn't seem to fit how I was feeling.
