Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

This sounds more like an anxiety and panic attack. Are you stressed out for some reason? If not then sleep apnea, sleep epilepsy, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, heart conditions, and ear problems will need to be ruled out. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
