Patient : Sometimes when i go to sleep, i have these attacks but im not sure what kind. i feel paralyzed and my eyes seem to roll to the back of my head. and because im paralyzed, i sort of panic which makes my heart beat really fast. last night it occured again but it was more severe. there was times that i couldnt breathe and this time it felt like i was having spasms and was shaking and being lifted of the bed. i also had a small headache when i woke up this morning. i tried finding answers online and i am guessing it may be panic attacks, sleep paralysis and other related stuff. is there a way to overcome this?
