Has anyone else had this? For the past few days, just as I am falling asleep I suddenly feel like my heart is pounding and I gasp for air. It jolts me awake and I can feel adrenaline course through me. It only happens as I am falling asleep at night. Once I am asleep, if I wake up and fall back to sleep, it doesn't happen. (Like if I am dozing in the morning before my alarm clock.)
My husband thinks it is just anxiety and he is probably right, but it happens when I have no conscious anxiety on my mind. It is ONLY as I am literally falling asleep. That exact moment. Has this happened to any of you?
