when i had panic disorder for a very long time i eventually had a sleep study that showed i had sleep apnea.. i would wake up in a panic but the sleep study showed that i was actually having an apnea episode.. just a thought..when my anxiety was at its highest i would suffer from sleep paralysis too where your woken up out of a dead sleep and you cant move talk scream yell anything but your awake.. are you on your back when you wake up? if you are try falling alseep on your side with a pillow propped behind you to make you stay on your side..
