Sleeping Issue

Hello everyone,

I don’t know what it’s called but I have this weird sensation/feeling when falling asleep. After closing my eyes for some minutes, it’s like my brain was aware that I’m about to transition in to sleep mode - from being awake to Stage 1 of sleep.

It’s a weird sensation (sudden dizziness) that makes me wake up again and feel anxious about it.

Anyone of you have had similar experience?

Any help or recommendations please?

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

I have problems sleeping like before I go into deep sleep I end up waking up as I’ve had shakes or chills or a zap and wakes me up again. I try and put on a relaxation video to help me sleep and focus on.

I have had this and it is a scary feeling specially when I suddenly wake up with flutters. The only thing I did was try to not let it over come me and I eventually fell asleep without waking up. I come to this site when I can't sleep and it helps. It helps so much that I have fallen asleep reading posts or typing lol. Hope you can get some good sleep soon.
