Does anyone randomly stop breathing during the day?

Wow! “Sighing,” I sigh and had never thought of that as a ‘sign’!

Read James Franklin’s [i]The Science of Conjecture: Evidence and Probability Before Pascal[/i], about when signs were evidence and two witnesses of sufficient stature was ‘proof’. This is the ‘proof’ that was lacking to convict Jesus.

I sigh, and am confirming a diagnosis of Central SA as I have written elsewhere here.

I'm having episodes while I'm engulfed in reading your responses. It does have something to do with being in a meditative state, which is something that people with anxiety or anger issues have adopted as a calming mechanism. We just gotta learn to reel it back in when it's not necessary. If I can find a link for more information I'll post it.

Hello you all, sorry about my poor english, but it´s not my main language.

I don´t know if I will say something different, but I had some episodes and would like to share my two cents. I think the episodes were because I was so sleepy during the day due to apnea, that I almost fall asleep. Since I get along with CPAP and start to sleep 6 hour or more*, it didn´t happen anymore.

*Like many others, I had anxiety crisis in this journey (for multiple factors, CPAP use included). When doctor gave me an anxiolytic, it was the first time I could sleep more than 6 hours with cpap.
