You might want to see if you have sleep apnea. Its a killer. 

 

Exactly this. If you're waking up out of breath, could be sleep apnea. Definitely get to a doctor so they can check for sure and recommend a sleep center to confirm.

Sleep paralysis is a common symptom of sleep apnea.  I have both.

 

When I realize that I'm in a state of sleep paralysis, I try to calm down and attempt to curl my fingers and toes.  This helps me snap out of it 90% of the time.  YMMV.

I've had this once or twice. I suspect alcohol withdrawal was a factor. I had to kind of "reboot" my brain a few times.

If you have overweight, could also be a problem for your breathing during sleeping.
