I am unsure if my problem deserves the attention of a doctor or it is a figment of my imagination. My breathing STOPS, mainly when I'm awake. While awake, I suddenly find myself breathing shallowly and very slowly, gasp for air and then resume breathing again. It feels as if I simply FORGOT to breathe. Is it a regular phenomenon among OSA patients? Does anybody have this symptom and should I mention it to my doctor? This has been going on for past three months, and there was no precipitating event. BTW…I do not have other consequences because of this nor do I get lightheaded due to this.
