Weird night time stuff
I'm in my '50's, have well controlled high BP and partial seizures, PVC's and migraines. For the past few months I've been waked up from sleep with a sense of breathlessness and PVC's. It's sent me to the ED twice with no end result.
The other night I was awakened this way and my left arm just got more and more numb and I had a real sense of impending doom. It was awful.
In the ED my troponin was normal, some PVC's on ECG; I asked the doc if it could be sleep apnea and he said I don't have the body habitus for it, so probably not.
Anyone else experiencing this? I don't have an anxiety or panic disorder- but I have read that it is possible to have panic attacks while asleep.
