Thank you for posting your query.
We need to exclude a diagnosis of paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea
(PND), as a cause of your symptoms.
This can be done by evaluation of a cardiologist and performing an echocardiogram
If these are normal, then, the symptoms could be related to panic/anxiety
. For this, you can consult a psychiatrist
I hope it helps.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
