spanish [r]

Is an unvoiced alveolar trill possible? I'm wondering because I always think I hear something not quite right about my [r] in Spanish. It almost sounds too breathy. Another problem is I can pronounce [r] easily when it's between two vowels, but consonant + [r] is impossible for me without pausing to kind of a gulp to provide myself with the air for what would be a vowel. Anyone else have the same issues?
