So I was in a complete sleep but when I woke up suddenly I had a feeling of chest pressure and pain similar to that of indigestion. And couldn’t catch my breath and felt very dizzy and lightheaded and couldn’t take a deep breath. Of course went into full panic mode like was having a heart attack cause of course in between my shoulder blades and left shoulder is stiff and hurts. I know my dentist wants me to see an ent for sleep apnea could it cause what I went through this morning?? Anyone here deal with sleep apnea i am a very bad snorer and wake up choking and gasping sometimes as well. But this was scary. 2 hours later still feel a sensation of pressure like bad indigestion in chest and dry cough occasionally and feel like i need to yawn to get a deep enough breath and the shoulder/back is still feeling the same. This is not helping my HA at all. I’m already worried about cushings this isn’t helping ugh. I just wanna be normal but my brain won’t let me and this was real symptoms.
Thanks everyone.

Anxiety can do that to you, believe it or not. I know the feeling all too well. Practice some deep breathing exercises, you can find tutorials on Google and youtube.

I do think it sounds like being evaluated for sleep apnea is a good step though. Maybe that's contributing to the way you feel.
