Panic Attack during sleep??????
« on: June 07, 2014, 02:36:55 PM »
Hello, I have posted this in GAD forum as well as I'm not sure where it falls, but desperate for some advice.

do any of you know if you can have panic attacks in sleep?

This morning around about 6.30am I woke from a vivid dream in which my husband dies in a storm, in the dream, I was crying and couldn't breathe, I woke up gasping for air, but still in dream state, but I also saw white sparkles as well - these were real symptoms.

So, my question is should I go to the doctors as I really felt that I was suffocating and then I saw the sparkles/stars in my vision, could these be symptoms of a health problem???

So feeling bit scared and stressed this morning!

Thank you in advance for any help

Don't go to your doctor.  You had a nightmare that carried over a bit when you woke up.  This is as normal as it gets.

This has happened to me before.

I also experience panic in my sleep.

You're fine; this is normal.
