I need help :(

My anxiety (If that's what it is) hasn't been half as bad as normal.... Until now! I've woken in the middle of the night sweating! With a really odd achy feeling that i can't work out is in my tummy or my chest. I've panicked and now have a racing heart and my left arm feels numb. I haven't woken from sleep like this before and it's scaring me :( I literally think something is trying to kill me

  • Are you alone? Have someone with you ?

  • I have awaken with this hundreds of times. I always feel as if the left side of my body is numb. Which scares me even more making my panic worse. Try to distract yourself with something. Focusing on it makes you think about it whic makes it worse.

  • Well Having Anxiety myself i can tell why you are panicking. Do you feel your house is haunted? I have been throught these thoughts before and have woken up sweating. This may be your mind playing tricks with you from a bad dream this happens to me often especially if something happens to me in a dream where i got hurt feels numb when i wake up but it may be nothing try not to worry and calm yourself and speak up if it happens again

  • Hey I read your post im writing to you because i wake up like that if I drink a lot of coffee or sweets I've stuffed with anxiety since i was 13 it's horrible but there's ways you can make it better here's my advice to you before you go to bed drink a lot of water because if you have anxiety disorder you shouldn't drink coffee soda & believe or not chocolate because there all a stimulate they all have caffeine in them which speeds the heart up & it will do it in your sleep even if you are not doing anything so my advice is cut down you're caffeine intake & learn how to breathe in though you're nose and out though you're mouth when you get your anxiety attacks it works believe me good luck
