Weird Symptoms When Trying To Go To Sleep

Recommended Posts

I recently made a new post called heart flip flop. Now i dont think it has anything to do with my heart. This is the sensation i get when i try to fall asleep: As i lay there getting tired and trying to fall asleep, i get this wave of fear feeling that starts behind my sternum (almost takes my breath away), then it moves down into my stomach and a big jolt (spasm) and its over until the next one. I tried to check my pulse while having these symptoms and it doesnt race or anything. I have been having a little more GERD lately and bloating, but i cant pinpoint what it is or where it is exactly coming from. Could it be Esophagael spasms, reflux, gas in the upper gi, ????????? Any ideas. If it was heart related why would it almost predominantely only happen when going to bed, and sometimes after eating?

I wish I had an answer for you. Maybe try not eating 2 hours before going to bed and don't lie down 2 hours after you eat either. I know that really helps my mom (she has Barrett's Esophagus). This could help you feel better, but I wish I could help you figure out why you feel that way.

don't know if it's exactly the same thing, but i would get these whole-body jerks that would happen most often before falling asleep, sometimes when i was awake, but usually right before sleep. sometimes a succession of them, like 4-5 in a row, and sometimes just a big one. anyway, doctors suggested maybe it was myoclonic jerks, and they are not dangerous. anyway, i am around 7 weeks into gluten-free diet and they are definitely becoming less often. i'm hoping just a recovery thing from Celiac symptoms. hope this helps as i'm not sure if it is exactly what you are describing or not and i don't even know if what i had was myoclonic jerks but the closest thing that docotors could give to label the weird sensation.

I read about these earlier today and i thought it could be what it is..........i wish it would go away whatever it is!
