Hey I used to feel like that 2 months ago haha. But I'd have to deal with that feeling for about 8 months, so I remember perfectly how it feels. It's just anxiety , no need to worry. Your body is feeling high alert before you go to sleep so when you lay down to fall asleep, your mind and body reacts by panicking, triggering your fight or flight response. Just breathe and relax, its probably nothing serious ;)

Ihave been experiencing the same thing. Ithink about death and think I'm going to die, but its just mind thing. I pray and keep myself busy. When my body feel like its fatigued or shutting down, i get up and go for a walk by water. its relaxing to me. Because of my Christianity and belief in God, the devil tries to distract me with my anxiety, but prayer does work adn doing something you really love to do, like me I sing.
