Why??
What would make you have this paticular concern? That is a difficult question to answer. Anyone could die in their sleep but they would normally have a health issue that would cause this to occur. Such as heart problems, breathing probleam, or possibly brain functionality. Do any of these happen to apply to you? If you are having any difficulties in these areas then I would suggest going to see a doctor for a check-up and speak to your family. But for the most part you should not fear the unknown only fear the known so relax and enjoy life your to young to stress over something so large.

Hi skim311, you teenagers have lots to worry about. And worry you do, as I know my 18 year old son does. As long as you are fit and well, its very unlikely, your going to die in your sleep, so sleep away will you, its the next day youv got to worry about. Just relax, and enjoy, ok!

Bye

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Yes, cardiac conduction abnormalities are responsible for this. But its not very common.
You should be hopeful. Start anxiolytic like lorazepam.
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
