I have a technic that I use on occation when things are getting to stressful for me. It sometimes works for me. I think to myself "In through the nose out through the mouth","get oxygen to my brain", "You can handle only one thing at a time the rest will have to wait".."F---- them or it"....

hi people its my first time on here i have also suffered from panic attacks when sleeping, mine started at work one night when i went to sleep , i must of just droped of when i woke with a feeling of a rush in my chest and my heart was going so fast , it was horrible i didnt want to go back to sleep. It started happening once every week at work , i only work one night a week and its that night it gets me , i think it because its a strange place that causes this and i also suffer from panic attacts, iv had cbt treatment last year . but i still get the panic attacks.
It all started after a accident i had in december 2005, when i was working on a vehicle a steel platform fell down on my head and pushed me down to my knees, i was checked over at hospital all ok. later that night i started to think about my accident and thought i was looky i didnt break my kneck or spine, thats when i started to shake and felt horrible, didnt know what was happening, i went back to hospital to be checked over again on heart machine, all ok.
since the accident i have suffered from a lot of different things all related to the panic attacts,even after cbt
anyone need to talk please contact.

Dean and Rosegarden,
Welcome to HealingWell and thank you for your input. It is good to see new members sharing.
We do have a welcome thread for new members to do an introduction if you wouldlike to.
I will bring the thread up for you.
I also used to suffer from panic attacks at night. I haven't had one since I started taking Clonazepam before bedtime. It really knocks me out and keeps me calm most of the day. I rarely have to take 1/2 of a .5mg xanax, but that is only if things are really stressful.
Hang in there
One of the best remedies for anxiety is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved" comes into its own here, and while you may dismiss it as nonsense, it may surprise you how anxiety alleviating it can be to just talk to someone.
Obviously when you're feeling at a low ebb, the last thing you tend to think about is the things that are good in your life. But to do this is a sure fire mood lifter and anxiety buster.
In all situations that fuel your anxiety, whether they be job related, family related or otherwise, try and think about all the things that you have done right. While its true that it is a good thing to acknowledge things that you can improve on, beating yourself up over mistakes you've made will only increase your anxiety.
Another trick is to find yourself a diversion that pleases you. Sometimes all we need is a diversion, or a hobby that we enjoy to ignite the pleasure in our lives By challenging yourself and enriching your life with interests outside of your daily routine, you not only participate in a rewarding and pleasurable pastime, you can bring back the zest into your life and divorce yourself your anxiety.
I wish you a wonderful day and I wish you peace ,
