Hi this just happened to me and I came on here to distract myself. This is my main thing , sleeping peacefully then wake up heart racing, which terrifies me, turn panic attack like right now. Then all the other stuff sweating shaking etc bit all through out the horrible pounding heart, also pains in arms etc etc. Have to keep telling myself I got checked out for heart problems, all the tests and our must be stress or anxiety.

Our is frustrating add I have been doing so well but also I have been under work pressure lately as well as all my usual things.

I never used to think it was possible to have a panic attack in my sleep but it seems to be quite common on here! Hope you got some rest in the end.


Sorry autocorrect our should be it all the way through that!


Yeah those suck .. :/ then I wind up staying up . Be calm, try.. Inhale ..exhale calmly & repeat .


Sorry your going through this, I can relate we just have to keep working through, look yourself in the mirror, And tell yourself I have felt this way before, I am okay, nothing happened to me except these "feelings" then I keep busy and try take my mind off it. Good luck to you! if you can't get Through them on your own maybe therapy or meds May be needed. Take care, And be well.
