Hey guys i know there is a thread about this but the sensations people were saying they were getting is a little different to me.. let me try and explain.. im 22, female, i smoke sometimes and i drink on occasions. i have been known to have anxiety attacks and i know i have a very overactive mind too which isnt a good thing when im trying to sleep..
Ill start with the first time it happened.. i was in bed hugging my boyfriend and i felt almost as though i couldnt feel him and i was kind of going in and out of my body and i knew what was happening but i couldnt stop it. It was like i could see my back as i had lifted out of my body but then id be fine and it happened for what felt like a good few minutes but then my body, on its own, jolted and i suppose i woke up but i didnt really feel like i was asleep. I then had this massive wave of fear and i got the worst anxiety i probably have ever had. I felt like i wasnt in my body and i felt like i was going crazy like nothing was real and i was in another world. My boyfriend woke up and was asking me if i was okay and whats going on and i felt like he was judging me almost like he thought i was going crazy (this was in my head he was actually really worried) i then started sweating and getting really hot and i started shivering almost like a fever and i felt like i couldnt move. It eventually went away but i had to stay up with the tv on and my poor boyfriend couldnt sleep til i fell asleep. I was scared to fall asleep incase it happened again but i guess i got so tired that i just went to sleep.
So then last night i went to bed and my boyfriend came in late i had been lying there for maybe an hour or so. Much like the first time i was hugging him and i was trying to sleep but i could feel that feeling coming on so i forced myself awake but i dont actually know if i was asleep? I didnt get an anxiety attack this time cause i knew i was going to be okay but i then looked up and came to this website and j was reading everyones sensations and i immediately felt better.
I dont get any pain its almost an out of body sensation but it comes and goes really quickly like im moving back and forward in my sleep.
Can anyone relate?
