Hello everyone, first of all let me thank you all for your contributions on this website !

I have a terrible problem, which started developing in the last few months: powerful adrenaline surges/jolts, immediately after falling asleep. More exactly: i'm going to bed, i'm starting to fall asleep and, during the second in which i'm losing consciousness and i'm drifting into sleep, bam, adrenaline jolt, heart racing, rapid breath. Let me add the fact that i'm not having any nightmares, night stresses, "bad" thoughts before going to sleep. Sometimes, this goes on for the entire night.
As a medical background, I had "normal", daytime, anxiety attacks from about 1yr ago up to about 7 months ago These sleep time anxiety attacks started about 3 months ago and became EXTREMELY serious about 3 weeks ago. Now, I'm desperate because I cannot get any rest during the night, I cannot do my job, I'm like a vegetable all day long, always dreading the moment when I'll have to go to bed. Besides, I'm VERY scared about what is going to happen to my heart, since I'm sure that all these episodes of adrenaline surges combined with falling back to sleep are going to damage it.

Probably, I'll go to see a doctor, but I'm very curious to know if anyone ever had these kind of symptoms and, if yes, what was the problem and how did they solve it ?

Thank you so much !
