Help- I wake up in the middle of the night with very fasta heart beats? Is this anxiety, vtach or anyhting worst? PLEASE HELP____
I would say this is most likely anxiety. This has happened to me under very stressful times. I find that daily exercise helps tremendously. Also concentrating on your breathing; slow breaths in through the nose and out the mouth while lying in bed helps too.
I get it too. I haven't found a solution yet. I'm convinced that it's anxiety. Someone told me once a long time ago that since you can get panic attacks during the day that there's no reason to think that you can't get them while you're sleeping.
I also have woken up many times with my heart racing like crazy. It makes me so weak and light headed that I have to lie down. I am also extremely hot went it happens. I am told it is a panic attack. Instead of taking medication I lie on the floor with a fan on on me and take a cold wet wash rag and keep wiping my hot spots with it. My face, neck, under my arms, and my feet. While doing this I take slow deep breaths and exhale slowly. I do this about 20 to 30 minutes and can usually get it under control. Hope this helps....Good luck!!!!
This is almost assuredly related to intense feelings of anxiety, which brings on an acute panic attack upon waking up...been there..not pleasant..usually happens if i wake up abruptly, or from an unsettling dream..The way to deal with it is usually to get up and get active..I learned the hard way which was stay and wallow away in bed, trying to sleep it off..It ended up wasting so many days and made me worse..Once you feel anxious and that heart is racing, get up, get some water..and start your day..I am feelin a hell of a lot better doing that. Take care
I too, have been suffering with anxiety attacks when I am asleep for some 25 years or better now. I wake up suddenly, heart racing, feeling very weak and disoriented, like I'm about to die. It is very frightening. My doctor is aware of this, however, he is not comfortable with me taking any long-term meds for this. (((sigh))) Just that thought alone leaves me feeling like I'm without a net if U know what I mean. I've tried everything from behavior modification to eliminating certain foods or beverages. I just don't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
