Since 1 week I am not able to sleep properly. At night suddenly I woke up and my heart beat increases and I feel like suffocation. This happens 2 to 3 times in night. My weight is 70kg.

I would suggest starting by good sleep hygiene - Some exercise during the day, but not just before sleep. Avoid eating a large meal before bed. Avoid caffeine, tobacco, alochol for a few hours before bedtime. Use the bed/bedroom only for sleeping. Don't try to force yourself to sleep. If you can't sleep after about 15-20 mins go to another room. Try reading with a fairly dim light, don't watch television or anything that gives off bright light. Cut down on screen time just before sleep. Fix your sleep and wake up routine irrespective of whether it is a weekend or weekday.
Next Steps
If your sleep issues persist consult a doctor. Having difficulty in falling asleep with palpitations, breathlessness - I would ideally assess your anxiety scores, few other metabolic function tests. I am pretty sure this is something that can be fixed.
Health Tips
Do not let this trouble you for long. Act now by starting with the sleep hygiene. Poor sleep can overtime affect your health adversely.
