That sounds like sleep apnea which can cause a whole host of other health problems. You should definitely mention this to your doctor and push him to pursue sleep studies.

it COULD be anxiety/worry/panic. i have a thing sometimes, not so much gasping for air, as a quick inhalation that jerks me awake, right as i'm about to drift off. but if it's sleep apnea, that would be different i think (not sure what apnea is caused by). consciously relaxing and breathing with your abdomen (deep belly breaths) before falling asleep might help.

Does it happen when you sleep only on your back, only on your sides, or all the time? I have apnea if I sleep on my back, but not if I am on my sides. Try changing your position. However, I really recommend seeing your doctor about it.
