Patient :It started 3 yrs ago, and only on occasion. When I would drink alcohol, after a few hr of being asleep I would be woken up by my heart pounding, horrible headache, nausea my skin sizzling (not hot), along with tremers. At first I thought.. Could it be a hang over.. But no. It didn't matter how much I drank. The last time I drank, it was a half of a pint of beer, and sure enough I was up all night shaking and feeling like I may be dying. I have not drank a single drop of alcohol in 6 months. It has now began to happen with out the alcohol. Always in the night or early morning. I used to think, am I having a panic attack? Is that even possible for a panic attack to wake you up? Can it be an allergic reaction, to possibly the grain and or something I ate the night before, it happened when I didn't drink?
