Why does this keep happening to me? adult content

once in a blue moon ill wake up from a dead sleep and feel like i have to get up. i usually just get up and go to the bathroom, and my heart will be pounding, like beating out of my chest. once im done peeing and a little bit more awake, it starts to slow down regularly. it really freaks me out. it usually only happened like twice-three times a year but it happened last week and last night. could this just be added stress getting to me? im worried something is wrong =(

  • Sounds like anxiety. Go talk to your doctor.

  • Sounds like you might be dreaming and not know it, which is common.

  • It definitely could be stressed related. If it is as infrequent as you say I wouldn't worry, but if it is really more than that get your doctor's advise.

  • It could be anxiety. I'd ask the doc just to be on the safe side.

  • It could be stress and you could also be having a dream (which also could be due to stress) that you are not remembering when you wake up because you wake up so suddenly and so panicked.
