    Is started having something similar recently. Just as I'm on the verge of sleep I get a sudden sense as though I I'm falling. It almost feels like the beginning stage of a panic attack but is gone instantly and doesn't cause me to jump and and generally fall asleep shortly after. Does this sound similar to what you are feeling ?

    Definitely Emma if I nod off during the day it happens, and if I'm half asleep or half awake in morning, it's like a low voltage electric shock flowing through my body and then my body shakes for about 10 seconds.

    It's not like the "tripping up, falling over" thing that makes you jump just as you fall asleep and almost like you've been startled. 

    It's very uncomfortable I know but is harmless. N

    My daughter had exactly the same thing. Its a burst of adrenalin that is going through your body. Are you anxious about anything and have you paid a visit to your doctor to discuss this. She is now on medication and this symptom has eased.

    How much drink will you have. If you have a couple of glasses of wine and a valium it will do you no harm. It only increases the sedation effect of the diazapam. My daughter when she is really anxious often has a glass of wine with a diazapam. Please dont attempt to drive though
