Just wondering if anyone has considered Sleep Apnea at all.
I started getting this whilst on meds after surgery last week. The jolting awake, like a shock, palpitations and terrified to go to sleep again.
I refused further meds from medical staff and it hasn't happened since. The meds were Codeine and Tramadol (at 2 different occasions)
From what I can research there are 3 different types of sleep apnea - the upshot being the relaxation(too much relaxed) of throat muscle, which temporarily cuts of air supply during sleep and your body 'wakes you up' with the jolt to get you going again.
It's definitely a frightening thing, but looks to be quite a common occurrence - worth a research, if you think it could be that... Good luck
