WAKING AT NIGHT WITH HEART RACING

Hi everyone,

Every night I wake up out of a dead sleep with my heart racing. Sometimes it happens a few times in one night.

Does anyone else get this? Has anything helped?

I’m sooooo tired of this. Need a good sleep.

Thanks for replying. My doctor wants me to try ESCITALOPRAM. But I’m scared to start a medication.

It’s an antidepressant like citalopram. It’s for anxiety. I’ll consider it if this continues it’s exhausting.

I do sometimes experience this and I find it reassuring to know I’m not the only one. I haven’t found the ‘cure’ but you’re not alone. Sorry I can’t be more helpful.
