Can bending the neck or backbone cause breathing or heartbeat problems?

I swear when I lay on certain couch pillows or slouch on certain couches or recliners, I have breathing problems or a slowed or sped up heartbeat. I try to avoid this but it still happens. My doctor says nonsense.

Of course it can.

Posture affects a lot of stuff.

Decent doctors like data.
Get an Apple Watch, or cheap ECG monitor from Amazon, and do some tests on multiple days. Record the results. Bring the data to the doctor. If he still says "nonsense", get a new doctor.

OF course. And it's pretty normal. humans are made weird. If it worries you and affects your daily living, speak to your doctor.

When I fall asleep in my recliner, my head is angled back from my body.

I sometimes wake myself up with ::snort:: which makes me wonder if there's some slight evidence of sleep apnea.

That never happens with I'll asleep in bed (side sleeper).




Two for two, I'm good now.

We are a government of laws, not men.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.
