Hi Gil! Yes I have woken up many times to having a panic attack. I have experienced anything from sweats, hot flahses, rapid heart beat, to numbness of the arms, head, face, tongue, and more. My doctor says that panic attacks dont have rules and can happen where ever and when ever even in a dead sleep. They are very scary. It will be ok though. I have been through this so many times and although its hard to convince myself sometimes I am ok, I am stil alive and able to talk to all about my horrible experiences with them.

YVW Gil! We will get through this. I have dealt with this in the past and again now, only this time they are more severe. I have had every test possible including an echo cardio and stress test. The biggest key that my counselor tells me is that you have to think positive and know that you are ok and will be ok. I started working on this breathing technique this weekend and let me tell ya, I have "breathed" my way out of four panic attacks in just two days. See my new post "Check this out"! It might help you. Also, I know this sounds silly, but I am registering in an adult hip hop dance class that starts on July 7th in my area. I dont care how old i am..lol I am going to try it. Full activity and doing physical exercise helps release endorphines from your body and wears the body out, which helps in decreasing the attacks. This is what my counselor is telling me and I am going to try it out. I will keep you posted too as to my progress. Even though I too and suffering with horrible attacks, I am here to talk to you and help you as I help myself.
