Ohmygosh! I just spoke to my cardiologist about this last week....i even asked can you have panic attacks in your sleep? It sometimes wakes me up around 3:30 or 4 with racing heart, nervousness,shaking, sweating, ECT. I literally stumbled on this post and jumped for joy (sorry but misery loves company 😊) this happens a lot when I get up in the morning as if I have had a whole pot of coffee ( which I had to give up😣)
He did say it was my POTS, but he is also having me scheduled for a sleep study. I do not sleep well or obviously get into REM sleep.
I thought I was losing my mind, glad to know I am not losing my mind!
