It's like the emotions of a nightmare but I'm awake shaking, I know I'm safe but it feels like the world is about to explode in 5 minutes

im allways tired but when i go to bed at night but it takes me like 40min to fall asleep
2020-02-17 10:30
I had the same problem! Only go to bed/get out of cellphone when you're literally about to sleep, it works for me.
2020-02-17 10:38
I know this is a very desperate measure but I remember times when my phone would break and I'd get out of the habit of using my phone 24/7 Then I would always fall asleep so easily
2020-02-17 10:49
I rarely have something like that but when it happens the feel is terrible But the situation is a bit different, l have lucid dreams and when I finally wake up some paranormal thing is in the room with me, I can't see it but I'm sure it's there
2020-02-17 08:55
Are you talking about sleep paralysis? I have a lot of experience with playing around with dreams and shit used to try force out lucid dreams with some success But talking about your panic attacks How long would they last? Do you just feel bad or do you have the "feeling of impending doom"
2020-02-17 08:59
I feel like reality is not reality and there's something wrong but I don't know what I don't know man, about 5 minutes I guess or sooner if something takes my attention and distract me
2020-02-17 09:59
I had sleep paralysis before I always manage to break out of the paralysis within a few minutes usually starting by first moving my toes and working my way from there

After doing some research on "feeling of impending doom" because of your comment i think i had that. #51
2020-02-18 05:32

Same happend to me once, I randomly woke up at night and had a strong panic attack (Dunno why, since this don't usally happen to me) but i couldn't move, also i felt that something was in my room with me (like an alien/demon) and that scared me to death. I also totally forgot about it till i remembered it like 2 days after lol. I don't think it was a sleep paralysis tho. Had one before and it was different also the sleep paralysis lasted for only 30-60 seconds when this panic attack lasted for like 2-5 minutes, really weird.
2020-02-18 05:23
Wow, this is the first I hear of something like this. Sounds fucking awful man. What problems do you have? Do you have friends? Do you work or go to school? Do you take drugs? I had panic attacks due to stress and cannabis, but I got over them by changing my lifestyle and doing less drugs. You can get over these attacks too, and it will make you stronger when you do.
2020-02-17 08:59
I can laugh about it afterwards it doesn't bother me But when I wake up sweating and I ACC feel like the world is going to end It's not a nice feeling
2020-02-17 09:01
I got friends and I go to school, used to smoke daily for long time but now smoke occasionally probs like once a week Not much drug abuse currently but I don't think that would cause it
2020-02-17 09:02
Ok. It’s good that it isn’t a bigger problem for you, but the attacks might get worse. At their worst, my panic attacks felt like heart attacks. So I went to the doctor and got my heart and overall condition checked out with blood tests and a heartrate problems there. Try to reduce stress in your life if you have any right now. If you don’t have stress, try to sleep in a different position? I dunno.
2020-02-17 09:06
I don't think they can get worse I don't think it's possible for my brain to create feelings of fear , worry , paranoia etc worse than this These panic attacks no joke make me feel the strongest feelings of fear I ever experienced And they're completely fake , manufactured by my own head

I think you are experiencing Night Terrors. Been there, it's terrifying. Best of luck moving forward mate <3
2020-02-17 09:01
Yea I got this shit but just wanted to know how many other people have it Feels a lot better knowing that I'm not going psychotic
2020-02-17 09:04

I think around 20% experience some form of it during their lives. It's not dangerous but feels like utter shit. I really wish it gets better mate, I had night terrors for 11 years as a kid and it sucked

I have anxiety/panic attacks. Better ask the HLTV academics.
2020-02-17 09:05
No I'll have better time asking people on Reddit Not looking for PhD level treatment had one 4 hours ago and didn't sleep and shit so thread has to be made
2020-02-17 09:09
A few people bothered to clean up after you before you learned not to shit yourself
2020-02-17 09:15
I don't think you can learn to stop these from happening These are completely debilitating while it's happening you can't do anything other than stare at the floor shake and panic and wait until it's over
2020-02-17 09:18
Yeah, I know what you mean. Someone wrote that 20%~ of people have night terrors at least once in their life, I think the number is around 50% for panic attacks.

Well do you feel in your body that like your heart is shutting down or an external factor it going to kill you?
2020-02-17 09:12
No no it's not body related All mental although my heart will be pounding and shit but that's expected Best way to describe it is the extreme fear that you'd only get while inside of a nightmare but while your awake Feeling of certain impending doom And a lot of shaking probs burned like 200 calories inside of 10 minutes with how much I was shaking
2020-02-17 09:16
I don't but I recently had sleep paralysis for the first time
2020-02-17 09:20
What was it like? Did you eventually manage to move or did you fall back asleep?
2020-02-17 09:23
I had tons of the most disgusting creatures (snakes, frogs) surround my bed and then a massive (like half a meter in diameter) spider appeared and started crawling up on me starting from my legs. I am EXTREMELY arachnophobic to the point when the smallest spider near me makes my whole body shake so it was fucking terrifying. Despite this, I actually kind of understood that there couldn't be a massive spider on my bed, so I focused on trying to make it all go away and did it.
2020-02-17 11:01
Only like one time I saw things during sleep paralysis My hoodie looked like a black man staring at me😳😳😳😳

I once had a sleep paralysis too and saw shadow-hands coming outta the wall in front reaching for me, but a giant spider like you said probably would have get me a hearthattack damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

Many people have it at night. Nighttime problems feel much bigger than during the day. It's similar to winter depression. I had that six months ago too and I got it under control with vitamin D3 K2. You should read up on vitamin D deficiency and the consequences of it. I got a bottle for 20 € on Amazon and it makes a huge difference.
2020-02-17 09:32
I guess I could have som vitamin deficiency I have been eating very shit recently
2020-02-17 09:34

You take vitamin D from the sun. That's why your deficiency is most noticeable in winter. However, you also have a deficiency in summer, so it helps to take vitamin D in a different way. If you get a panic attack at night, I recommend progressive muscle relaxation. This is an exercise that will definitely help you in these situations. When your body is relaxed, so is your head. The most important thing is that you know that a panic attack is very unpleasant, but in any case totally harmless. You're not in danger. You just have to find a way to get through the situation and accept it.
2020-02-17 09:56
Also I've had one happen long after I woke up around 9am Out of nowhere I started getting that anxiety feeling and within 15 minutes it was peaking
2020-02-17 09:54

This is normal in panic attacks. They don't last more than 10 to 15 minutes because your body releases antidotes. I want to give you one more recommendation. Go jogging or do other sports. Sports make you feel healthy. It is very helpful against panic attacks.
2020-02-17 10:03
Antidotes? So your telling me that my own brain creates a feeling of certain doom And at the same time my own body fights this completely meaningless and pointless thing? This is proof the human body was not intelligently designed

You might want to check out the fight-or-flight response. It's a stress reaction that is triggered in dangerous situations. Panic attacks make your body feel like it's in a dangerous situation. Therefore you also feel the corresponding symptoms. For example, sweaty hands, racing heart, tunnel vision, etc. If you know the symptoms of a panic attack, you know that you are healthy and that it is quite normal for these symptoms to appear.
2020-02-18 09:35
Just don't sleep.
2020-02-17 10:19
That tactic only works for so long

Life is like HLTV. You just have to turn on the night mode and thats it. I recommend using night mode all the time.

2020-02-18 05:34
When I'm awake for a very long time and then go to sleep, it happened a few times that i wake up after 1-2hours with panic building up out of nowhere, becoming so bad it feels like my mind is getting pressed into the smallest thing possible, dunno really how to explain it, but it always felt like that. Also it only happens in this situation.
