This answer was rated:

Hello, last night I was lying on my back and I had a weird feeling of not being able to take a breath. I thought it might of been my imagination, but only last a few seconds and all well. Feeling well but am stressed out and wondered if it was anything to worry about or not?

This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I'm sorry you were stressed out.

anxiety and stress can cause you to have shortness of breath sensations in your chest.

that is good it only lasted a few seconds.

this sensation sounds like it was related to your anxiety symptoms.

and nothing to worry about

let me know if you have questions.

Many thanks for your help. It was as if I was lying there and I couldn't take a breath in at all

that sensation can be from anxiety attack or panic attack or excessive anxiety
