This is a little serious for me… I've always had slight breathing problems at night but not like this. Within the last couple of weeks I notice at night I stop breathing and I am forced to wake up sit up and take a few deep breaths. My boyfriend slept beside me the one night and said he couldn't sleep because I would stop breathing, he had to wake me the one time. It's really scaring me cause it's happening during the day once in a while as well. There is also some back pain higher up. Could this all be because of stress? Or should I be concerned? Please let me know what you think.
