    Hi All, I dont get on here very often because most of my symptoms have abated. I get some new stuff here and there and I know how to approach it for the most part minus this one.

    I've been feeling very tired after I eat. Like sleepy and lethargic, even when I drink something. I suspect TMS because I dont have Diabetes, I am in decent shape and it just seems a little suspicious because I have moments when it lifts - So I'm almost certain it's TMS. This part isn't a huge problem except that i feel like it puts me in a state of freeze where I feel spaced out and a bit zombie like.

    The problem occurs when it comes time for bed. This freezy spaced out sleepy symptom will drag on for hours. I eventually go to bed but I wake up choking or gasping for air. I'm not terribly worried - it feels like apnea or something like maybe I stop breathing. It doesnt happen all the time - it scares my wife because I wake up gasping loudly. Now it's not exactly new, I had this years ago before all the major TMS stuff hit me. I did nothing and it went away on it's own. I'd like to think that doing nothing will help again but I think there are better ways than doing nothing.

    If anyone has any ideas. Here is what I am doing.
    I am managing stress, I exercise, I eat pretty healthy,
    I meditate.
    I try and journal.

    I feel like some fear of some things are present. Irrational fears I am trying to work on. I've had health anxiety on and off for years. It has gotten better all the time but part of the fears feel more unconscious than not.
