I am overweight but relatively active... I play paintball every two weeks... And I dont eat that much.. And at night when im about to lie down to go to sleep I start getting a tight chest and then I can't get deep breathes with out a lot of work...But once I achieve this breathe I feel absolutely fine for like 10-15 seconds then im back at it... But when I watch a movie or something its not there... Always at night right before bed.. And tonight is exceptionally different.. It is really hard to get a deep breathe.. Hurts around abdominal area... And im getting dizzy after these breathes...Is this a health problem or is this all in my head??

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This seems health problem. I would suggest you to have polysomnography to rule out organic cause.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
