Patient :I was sleeping over at a friends house and they told me that while I was sleeping I was breathing really fast and then I would quit breathing for a few seconds. They also told me that my heart rate was getting faster. I have noticed that my heart rate gets fast when I am at work and I black out for a few seconds. I am a 21 year old female. When I was 17(?) I had the germ of TB. Could this be the cause??
