Hello, I am new on here. I have had anxiety/panic attacks since grade school. I went through some traumatic things later in life and went on sertraline 25mg and it really helped me cope for a few years. I am now 40 and the past 7 months o have had my heart racing in my sleep and wake up with my HR at around 120-135 BPM. I then throw myself into a panic attack and end up calming down enough to go back to sleep. I have a higher HR in the day when doing regular activities like cleaning and my BPM range from 119-125. I have a resting HR around 85-95bpm. I just wondered if anyone has experienced palpitations in the middle of their sleep and is it normal?

    Hi pris .. My name is Kenny. 52.. I've had that with the cold sweats. For years. A friend of myne suggested to try yoga for my anxiety and stress after i got checked out by my dr. First. It helped fantastically. I'm on the same meds and dosage for 2 years. Also drink a glass of water before, yes before going to bed. For me I was doing better in abount 3 to 4 weeks. God bless, you'll be fine. Your not alone.

    I have the same symptoms at night but I am taking BP med and drink lots of water and losing weight. No more caffeine, low salt, and low cholesterol foods.
