My problem is the past two weeks, every couple of nights or so, when i try to lay down to go to sleep I struggle to breathe, it seems to get worse, the closer i get to falling asleep, this has me feeling crazy. I have read it can be caused by anxiety, which i struggle with, but it feels so physical I can't believe it's all in my head, it would be comforting having someone tell me it is though. I don't have struggles breathing like this all day long, until i try to go to sleep, please help!? I use marijuana, but I know this probably will sound ignorant to a doctor, but i don't think it's related, ive never had struggle breathing at any other time, besides sleep, im telling you though, cause i really would like to know whats going on. and i haven't used in about a week.
