Doctor: Hi.Read and understood your problems. The history of stopping of the breathing automatically, clattering of the teet h, fibrillation and all the changes you have suggested do not fit into any known syndrome, hence the only option in such a case is to be hospitalized for the attack to be observed by the Doctors or the staff of the hospital and get on-spot investigations like EKG, And all the relevant tests to come to a conclusion to get a probable diagnosis and proper medication for your life to become comfortable.I hope you understand this as all the symptoms you have mentioned are potentially dangerous to life.
