Hi there

This actually happen to me this morning!

I just ignore it now and do my deep breathing :)

It really does help:)

Check out Headspace and calm.com these are both very good websites:) x

Hi for me I try to keep in mind that when this happens during the night or when i wake at any point it is because I read that your sugar levels can crash and for me I make sure that I don't go to bed hungry and keep a packet mints handy :o)
