low base makes me stop breathing?
This is really weird and I can't seem to find any information on this other than similarities to sleep apnea, only it happens when I'm awake. To clarify, if I am listening to music with a low baseline, or any kind of very low pitch noise is happening around me, I stop breathing. Not holding my breath, just not taking in any air. I don't even realise I'm not breathing until I either feel my chest tighten, or I get a headache. Once I do realise I'm not breathing I usually take a very large, long breath, and it seems to feel like I've come out of a dream. Like the world was muted and I had just snapped out of it.
Does anyone have a clue why this is happening? I've never had any medical complications in my life, so maybe its psychological? I can't go anywhere to further look into this, (like a doctor, or psychologist) but in previous physical checkups my family doctor has never pointed out anything abnormal.
Any help or possible information sources are greatly appreciated!
