Re: Night terrors or just sleepwalking?
It is not quite known what can cause or what are the causes of nocturnal panic attack and daytime panic attack. In fact, nocturnal panic attack can happen without any obvious triggering factors and can wake anyone up from their sleep. In nocturnal panic attack, the person can wake up from his or her sleep feeling extremely terrified, a sense of impending doom, increased heart rate, fast breathing, sweating, and flushing. In fact, a person who can experience nocturnal panic attack may sometimes think that he or she is having a heart attack, since nocturnal panic attack can mimic heart attack symptoms.
