Bad dreams waking up and can't breathe?

I was asleep and I was having a bad dream but when I woke up I couldn't breathe. This has happend the past 3 nights. (I am 16 and not over weight.) Could it be the dreams making me not able to breathe? What should I do? I'm scared to tell my boyfriend or mom because they will take me to the hospital :(... show more I was asleep and I was having a bad dream but when I woke up I couldn't breathe.
