Patient : I've been trying to sleep for ten hours now. When I lay down for bed, I close my eyes and I'm jolted up gasping for air not much later. I feel shaky and my vision is blurry. My heartbeat feels irregular, and its difficult to breathe. And some of my body parts keep twitching. I even took melatonin and nyquil to help me sleep but I can't! This has been going on for every night over the past week. Help me?
