Abstract

Our patient suffered from nocturnal awakenings due to paroxysmal feelings of suffocation for three years. He was extensively examined at the community health centre and at the departments of neurology, psychiatry, oral diseases and respiratory medicine of the district hospital and the university hospital. The clinical hunch of the night nurses of the department of respiratory medicine and video EEG monitoring recommended by the sleep disorders team eventually revealed the real cause of the patient's symptoms.
