I do not know what happened, but I stopped being able to breathe the last night. It was terrifying. My nose was stuffed up and I have been trying to get over the cold for almost 16 days now. I was laying on my back and had a dream (it was not scary at all). During the dream, I realized that I was not breathing. When I woke up, I really was not breathing and I had to swallow like 10 times just to get the feeling to go away and breathe again. I think it honestly was from the post-nasal drip down my throat and my mouth being so dry. Could it have caused a laryngospasm? What could have caused this? Should I be nervous? Could it happen again? I am on regular Synthyroid (hypo) and have been taking Amoxicillin for the past eight days to get rid of this cold. My throat is still a little sore and I have been coughing on and off. It feels as if there is something stuck in my throat. Please help.

I only get this problem when I have a cold. I do not usually have nasal stuffiness and it is more so at night. Right now, I am breathing through my nose, but at night laying down makes me have to breathe through my mouth. I did purchase a vaporizer to add moisture to the air in my bedroom. Should I be scared this could happen again? Or should I prop myself up while sleeping to feel fine?
