Lately, on some days when I try to go to sleep, my while body starts tingling. It s very annoying and when I open my eyes, it goes away. When I close my eyes to try to sleep, it starts. I really want to try to stop this but I don t know how.. What should I do? I m a girl who is almost 16 years old. What I noticed was that when I sleep during the day (today was 3-4 hours after school) I have the problem at night. At least I think so.

Hello Dr, I broke my ankle back in December 2013, and got better around May 2014, so I have been pretty much immobile for about 6 months. I believe I developed Sleep Apnea, and that is my question, do I have Sleep Apnea, or something else? Symptoms: When I try to sleep my lower throat/chest area gets tight and my hearts beating fast as a result of lack of oxygen, because every time I try to fall asleep I wake up gasping for air. I eventually fall asleep after twisting and turning, and sometimes these episodes happen, and sometimes not where I can sleep fine. I am wondering if this is due to immobility? Thanks.

My fiance has sleep apnea badly she is a hispanic female 45. I am a wounded veteran and have very limited funds from the government. All my medical is done by the VA hospital with all my surgeries she has to obtain insurance due to me unable to pay many of bills I have. Thanks I don,t have the money and I am sorry I maybe wasted your time. I apologize. She awakes many times and puts her pinky as deep as she can and shakes her finger very rapidly to try and get to itch, but to no avail. She is about 5 6 about 260 lbs. The apnea may be part due to the intense long drawn snoring which eventually goes to her not breathing for 10 to 20 seconds maybe once a minute or two. Her snoring may have to do with this issue because she will awake and then try to get to itch in inner ear. I know the apnea is the major concern gastric bypass and other treatments were discussed but I stay awake every night as long as 5 in the morning just to scratch her head so she will not stop breathing so much. The snoring is the most intense I ever heard and I was in the sevice with some big boys that I thought was loud they are not even close to her. If any of you can maybe help me help her I would be grateful and I would be indebited to anyone who would help. T. Fitzgerald

Hello, I have high blood pressure, and am a 21-year-old female. I have been prescribed a low-dose high blood pressure medication, and haven t had any complications with it. However, lately, I have been feeling like my chest is heavy and have had a hard time sleeping for quite some time. I wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air, and no matter how much sleep I get, I m exhausted when I wake up. I am starting to think it s Sleep Apnea, but am wondering if there are any other heart-associated links? There is S.A in my family - my father has it. Ideas?
