Can anyone help



First episode mid-July 2004. 2-3 minutes then awake, tired but fine. August and Setember episodes about 1x per week lasting longer 5-8 minutes. Neck starts twitching and breathing heavily while passed out then breathing slows all of a sudden almost to nothing. October same thing but more frequent 4x per week. This is very scary and all tests of cardio and neurology are negative. The dr.'s have NO ANSWER for me. Anyone else have this going on what have you been told. Yes ok I have stress in my life, but could that be the complete answer. My body should not be doing this I'm only 32.
