So i have been having this crazy scary feeling when i am trying to fall asleep. Its like just before i slip off into "unconsciousness" my brain like freaks and sends a jolt through my body. Its sort of feels like your falling or something. My heart starts racing and i get really hot. It started thursday and todays sunday. Thursday i was able to fall asleep on my own although it was tough, and then friday i had to take two benadril and my mom gave me a lorazepam and after about an hour i again luckily fell asleep. Well last night i didn't get any sleep at all and this feelings just overcoming me with severe anxiety i feel like I'm dying, and like its all i can think about!! Its very scary and i'm reading all these horrible things like fatal familial insomnia and stuff thinking i have a prion disease or something :(. if i don't sleep tonight or this feeling persists I'm going to a doctor ASAP. Just wondering any one has had this feeling before. Please let me know any info thanks! Not getting any sleep really sucks.
