Last night, I slept with a sheet over my head for 1 hour. It's a very thin sheet and I can even see through it. Didn't think much of it at 3 AM in the morning but when I woke up an hour later, I became panicked. I am worried that I may have caused a component of brain damage. Is this even possible? I know people pass out when they are oxygen starved but hard to experience that symptom when you are sleeping. Certainly I should have other signs and symptoms of excessive carbon dioxide that ensure prior to brain damage?
Hi there.

Thin sheet over head can not be the reason of carbon dioxide built up in body and brain damage because of low oxygen.This is not possible.One can have no such a low oxygen because of head sheet.So do not worry for that and do not be panic.
