Has anyone woken up with severe anxiety? I woke up about 4 months ago with extreme dissociation/derealization/depersonalization (to the point where i felt drugged), lightheadedness, sensory overload, 24/7 panic, and weird head sensations. I also had peeling around all my fingernails and fingertips.

One morning I woke up with intense fear, I don't recall having a bad dream I just remember the fear and adrenaline coursing through me. I've also had sleep paralysis before.

After I started taking anti-psychotics it all stopped because they prevent the reuptake of Dopamine and Dopamine is at its highest when you sleep and are just waking up.

If you can't get anti-psychotics you could use what I used instead which are herbal Graviola pills, I took one before bed each night and they lower Dopamine levels.
