    I get this panic when I wake up in the morning. I call it "active shooter in the building'" level of panic. (I'm an American!)  

    Any unexpected noise can spike my anxiety for sure. 

    I did find this got better when I supplemented B complex vitamins. But it still happens to me. 

    I try to check to see if I am over-stimulated generally in my life and scale back a bit.  That helps too.

    It's a form of PTSD. I get it too. I'll fall asleep on the couch and jerk awake, heart racing, scared too death..

    I was driving the other day and someone pulled up next to me. I looked over and he was looking right at me. I got scared too death.

    I guess our nerves are on edge too.

    Hi

    yes, I get it when my Husband is driving, I can feel myself braking, jumping forward as if someone is going to run into us. Supermarket on my own, I get clammy and shaky and feel like I'm going to be sick. It's horrible. I have been going to same hairdresser for many years and started to think she was horrible to me so the next appointment I cancelled and coloured it myself, now I hate it!!!  I'm scared to get in car in case neighbours are out. Frightened of my own shadow!!!!! It will get better I'm sure. It's a horrible feeling though. I feel like a little girl again, finding my way in the world. Not nice

    I definitely get this feeling more often than none. I wake up sometimes with my heart pounding, body shaking scared out my wits. I could be cooking, driving, or doing anything and all of sudden I get scared thinking something is going to happen to me at that very moment. I immediately try to shift my attention elsewhere because if I don't I am going to lose it and send myslef into a bad panic attack. You are definitely not alone with these crazy sensations.
