sinking feeling in chest

Just as I'm falling asleep I get an awful sinking feeling in my chest, just as if a cork has been pulled out and everything is emptying out of my chest area. It only lasts a few seconds but feels awful and frightening. I then feel like I need to take a deep breath to get my heart rate and breathing back on the right track. Does anyone have any idea what this is?
