I don't exactly know how to describe this but.. I get this really scary sensation in my chest before I'm about to drift into sleep. And sometimes it keeps me from sleeping. It's like a shock in my chest, and my heart feels like it stops for a few seconds, my vision goes blurry, sometimes like the static on a tv, and I can't move any of my limbs. This happens every now and then and it scares me greatly.

I've had a holter monitor and a CT scan and they both came out fine. I've also had numerous blood tests and they all come out fine. I don't get what's going on and I'm scared.

Can someone help me figure this one out please? Thank you!

I have exactly the same problem and doctors have no answer.
