DependsOnLottaThings: We all get funny feelings now & then Like just last night I felt like I was being choked by a Bigfoot.Turned out to be a bad dream.But in your case it depends on how long this has been happening and if the symptoms vary.Also your age & if you have any other medical problems. If this has been going on for more than, say, 2 months, see a doctor,preferably a neurologist, but your regular doc will do
