I’ve been experiencing what feels like a contraction or twitch in what I feel like is my diaphragm, every time I try to fall asleep. This occurs repeatedly unless I take a Xanax. Usually 3-4 hour later, when Xanax wears off, then it starts back.This all came on while recovering from Covid. What is going on?
Hope things are getting better. I’m going on about 2 weeks now. I had this before and used Xanax to get past the episodes. When it would wear off , about 4 hours, it started back up. It actually went away for about 10 years, and I came down with Covid 3 weeks ago and it’s back. ABC123 breathing exercises are on my top priority to try.
Thank you for posting this!!!! This is exactly what I have and hopefully this will work for me also. Are you still doing good?
Thanks for your post!!
Directed to ABC123 and ReggieN. Thanks for your post!! I have the exact same thing going on, and my research has provided me with little help and little hope. I had this issue several years back, brought on by stress and basically just drugged myself with Xanax in order to get some sleep. This time it has come on after Covid with a slight case of pneumonia which I believe has resolved. Going to Dr. today. My ear eaustachian tube has been blocked, which makes me hear my breathing louder when I’m trying to go to sleep, which increases the anxiety. Hopefully I can get this resolved. Going on about 10 days. I just saw your post last night and wanted to say thanks for giving me some hope.
