This doesnt happen all the time but there are times when my husband wakes up in the morning not being able to breath, he walks down the stairs and starts couching then he is in a panic he turns white and has a very hard time breathing and he coughs. He gets scared so he is in a panic i console him by telling him to calm down cause i find it makes it worse, he also gets a sharp pain through his head. the weird thing is the episode only last maybe 7 minutes. i give him my puffer and i think it helps. i thought maybe it could be an asthma attack. the only times he ever goes through this is in the morning when he first walks down the stairs. anyone else have some input? i am going to make him a docs appointment to see if they can find anything /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/idea.gif

Maybe he is getting a bad head rush.
Does he just sit on the bed in the morning for a few minutes?
He might be getting up too quickly?

im glad you are going to a doctor soon. my hubby has a hard time breathing and it is from asthma. it happens more in spring and fall, and not all the time. let us know what is going on if you find out, ok.
