I too stop breathing while awake, and after a short time, I realize it, and start breathing again. My wife says she does the same (and she doesn't have Sleep Apnea). I RARELY have any Central Apnea events at night, I don't think I've ever had more than 2 in a night, and that only seems to happen if I DONT SLEEP the night before, like I go into an extra deep sleep or something? Anyways, I asked my doctor about it, and he said it was normal for people to do that. Though, I don't gasp for air when I notice it, I just start breathing again, and maybe take a deep(er?) breath.... So, the real question is, do you NEED to gasp, or are you just panicking (really? it has a K in it? according to my spellcheck it does!?) ? if you NEED to gasp, it might be a concern.. Otherwise, it's pretty typical... those who think it's unusual (looking back a few posts
) just haven't become aware that they are doing it yet.
