Occasional Periodic Breathing
#1
Question 
I have been having occasional episodes of periodic breathing. I will go several days without having them and then have a day or two when I have 1 to 3 events per night (usually 1). They are usually between 2 to 3 minutes long. My most recent occurred last night. It was a single event lasting 2:36 minutes.

Is this anything to worry about?

Never mind. robysue eloquently answered this question in another post by Hmm888 earlier this morning.
