waking in the night gasping for breath

Postby miss daisy » Thu Jun 03, 2010 1:10 pm

hi i am newly diagnosed however long term sufferer as i now know it to be. i am slowly coming to terms with the diagnosis, so far i have found my dizzyness,headaches and migraines, numbness in fingers,facial pain, sweating/flushes, pain in every part of the body,dream like lack of concentration episodes ect ect is more than likely associated with fibro,
as i have thought for many years as some of you all have that i was losing my mind, i thought i would ask , does anyone wake in thee night gasping for breath? this isn't a regular occurence the last time i experienced this was about six months ago until last night where i woke 3 times gasping for breath,
when it first happening about 5 years ago i had you know the usual blood tests xrays of my chest, all clear, as it is not a regular occurence i haven't been back the docs with it, but it scared me last night.

take care

Hannah if I were you I'd go back to the docs and ask them to check it out. I dont suffer from this but if others do I'm sure they will reply soon :hugs: :hugs:

I get very very breathless during the day, have had tests done and they sau everything is normal but that breathlessness is not fibro realted, os what it is i do not know but its very scary.

Definitely get it investigated. It might be sign of sleep apnea, so you'll need a sleep study. If you have un-managed sleep apnea, Fibro is a lot harder to get control of, so it's well worth checking this out.
I run FibroAction, a small national charity raising awareness of Fibromyalgia Syndrome. I am not a qualified healthcare professional. If you would like medical references for any facts quoted, just PM me.
