I do not know if you are on any kind of OPIODS for pain.
But if you are remember that ANY OPIOD depress's the respiratory system.
Most people whom you read about over dosing did not over dose they died due to the respiratory sytenm slowing down to much.
My wife claims sometimes I breathe only 3 times a minute at night....it scares her but having the Morphine in my system does that.
BUT to be sure I would have it checked by a DOCTOR....you may have COPD, or pneumonia.....so the next time you see your DOC let this be one of the first things your bring up !!!!!!
Let me know how you make out !!!!
MY GOAL IN LIFE IS TO BE AS GOOD A PERSON AS MY DOG ALREADY THINKS I AM.....
