Just came back from the ER. Woke up this morning feeling absolutely awful. Insane headache, nausea, dizzy and freaking the fuck out. Literally felt like i was dying and had a crazy panic attack. Friend drove me to the ER because we thought i was having a heart attack (im 21, in good health and low/normal weight… very unlikely). Arrived @ ER still felt weak/shaky and had to throw up. They took me in immediately, checked my heart and everything. Perfectly fine, turns out i had been deprived of oxygen all night and my body was freaking out and was putting me into some kind of survival mode. Was hyperventilating which felt like a heart attack (chest tightness/sweating and everything).

Lesson learned, dont use any kind of sedatives when you have sleep apnea.
