What do you want to ask?

I wake at night, and have this feeling of being out of control, my arms become very heavy,and almost painful without the pain, if that makes any sense. I feel like I need to run, I have to get out of bed, regardless of how tired I am, there is no way of me staying in bed, i have to get up, walk around the house, or do somthing other then laying down. my feeling at the time are so hard to explain, I can't even understand what is going on, somtimes I will take a zanax, and it will put me right to sleep. Is there anyone out there that has anything even simler to this problem, if so please respond. Thank You PJ

Its called a nocturnal panic attack. I've had them before as I was drifting off to sleep as well as when I've been asleep. Although you dont hear much about it, it is common.

Hi PJ. I used to get these nocturnal panic attacks pretty often. I'd grab my dog and go for a walk at like 3-4 am. The only reason why I don't have them anymore is because I take Zopiclone everynight, which takes a while to work (in my case) but once I fall asleep, I don't wake up during the night and don't get nocturnal panic attacks.
