This has happened to me so many times, up to 7 times a night, in about 10 to 15 minute intervals...
Just as i'd fall asleep, a shock would go through my entire body...mostly my head though, and i'd jump up gasping for air, feeling my heart beating like crazy...
I am on a lvl 7 prescribed sleeping tablet at the moment
Hasn't happened since

It's funny you should make a thread about this, because the last few weeks I've been experiencing the same thing multiple times a night. I don't think I have sleep apnea, and I don't have restless leg syndrome that I'm aware of. It happens regardless of where I've been sleeping, and it's really bothersome. Last week I jolted so violently that I punched my gf in the face (luckily she is a deep sleeper and doesn't bruise easy, so I never told her ) When it happens to me I tend to push my arms out, full extension almost like im trying to push someone off of me or something. It's been aggravating and is definitely impacting my ability to get the most out of an 8 hour sleep night.

I don't know if this fits it with this thread, but I usually wake up at the same time every night. It is increasing though. It used to happen sporadically and now it is much more common.
I believe that I am just so paranoid and scared that I wake myself up to "check things out". Am I making sense?
I hate the dark and I hate sleeping by myself so I figure that is why. I get myself so worked up that I subconsciously wake myself to make sure everything is alright.
