    I don't know what happened, but I woke up this morning and could barely breath! Went to the bathroom and felt drunk. I took Unison Sleeping Pills before bed and wondered if those could cause shortness of breath?

    I went to sleep and woke up later & it still felt hard to breath. My chest feels like it has excess air in it.

    I have a heart murmur and Irritable bowel.  Not sure if these could be the cause of what's been going on or not.

    Please, can someone tell me what's going on?! hmm

      Call your doctor.  Don't take chances with your health.  You can also call the company of the sleeping aid you took.

      Given the symptoms and your underlying medical conditions, you need to go see your doctor, not get crackpot internet medical guesstimates.

      "Please, can someone tell me what's going on?"

      Well, part of the problem might be that you're asking the internet to diagnose your scary-sounding medical condition. As far as I know, none of us are medical doctors (am I wrong? Is there a doctor in the forums?). On the upside, most of us have told you to go see one, which is good advice.

      I don't mean to make light of what you're experiencing, but the HP forums is not where you need to be just now. Find a medical professional if you can.

    Any pharmaceutical drugs can cause side-affects.
    I don't take them. Know a guy had the same problem. I told him it was the heavy pollen in the air at that time. It will subside. He went to doc and had all the tests. They found nothing. He was fine shortly thereafter. For what it's worth.

    Calling the doctor is of course the best choice.  I am no doctor but it does sound like hyperventilation?

    all i could find about unisom relating to breathing is that it's not recommended if you have asthma.

      I don't have asthma, but know my heart beats irregular.

    Is it getting better, David? I would steer clear of those pills next time, were I you.

      At the moment I feel alright, but did not for a while. I ate some food.

        David, I would see a doctor just to make sure things are OK. It is probably fine, but it is always good to rule out anything serious!

    David, it's not my business; but - really - you should just see a doctor to make sure.  Breathing difficulties can be associated with heart-related stuff.  (Not saying it is (obviously, nobody on here can make even uneducated guesses - only saying that breathing problems aren't something to ignore.  Even if it's something entirely unrelated to either the heart "issue" or the Unisom, it's something that ought to be figured out by a doctor.

    Assuming people can afford to go to the doctor.

      As far as I know, if he's in the US and goes to an emergency room and says he's having breathing difficulties they'll see him.

      Besides, if someone isn't completely indigent there are ways to shuffle money and pay for an emergency room visit.  There are also sometimes family members (parents especially) who'd far rather give or lend someone the money for seeing a doctor than not.  (It'd be one thing if it was something like a twisted ankle, but breathing problems are a whole other kind of thing not to ignore.)

    You should get off of sleeping pills. They don't even work. The best way to get sleep is get on a schedule that works for you.

    If you are on presc medicine, it is important to check with pharmacist about any other over counter pills to make sure of no interaction. I assume Unison is over counter. It could interact with heart or blood pressure medicine or any other meds. My pharmacist is my lifeline.

    I hope David470's HP silence since his last posting means that he did take everyone's advice and go to see a doctor.  I'm concerned.
