Hello...

So, for a while now my body has been acting weird, specifically my heart and that often happens when I lie down to sleep at the end of the day.

I wake up when I just fell asleep, my heart either racing like crazy or incredibly slow, my feet mostly have these PAINFUL needle-like sensations, sometimes it's like stabbing.

Other times it's in my hands/arms too. (I also notice at times that I am anxious for certain stressful events my arms feel weird)

All that I seem to find while googling is that it's related to anxiety. I find it so puzzling because I do not feel anxious!! Sure I have thoughts that would make me feel anxious but I don't, however all of these symptoms just somehow say that I am... it's just crazy

What do you think? Have you experienced something like this? and do you think it might actually be anxiety?

needless to say I have DPDR.

Don't worry about it, I used to get it. I remember one night I felt my body buzzing and my heart beating even though I wasn't consciously anxious. I went to sleep then woke up with a jolt and it really worried me.

Since then I've been able to stop this by breathing slowly and deeply when I feel it. It's most likely your body getting used to recovery, which is good news as it means you are recovering. If it helps then since that day I mentioned above (which was last week) I've eliminated almost every symptom.
