Welcome to Health Care Magic

You experienced sudden awakening from sleep and found yourself running and pulling door knobs. After that shaking of body was observed.
These type of symptoms may occur due to following reasons
- It may be due to disturbance of sleep due to night mares.
- It may be an episode of seizure.
So I would advise you to please visit a good psychiatrist and get your EEG done to rule out any seizure discharge from brain. Also if seizure is ruled out then you can take advise regarding sleep dysfunction.
