Hi..It does not seem to be any problem that is of serious concern. Get a ECG of the heart or a cardiac evaluation done if you are worrying too much because of this.. Also look out for any other reason why you are woken from the sleep, they may be the reason for your symptoms...

Hi well come to HCM.
It could be simple tachycardia related to some dream,ie some fear full or some eciting
dream which can give you simple tachy carsia. For this you need not worry at all it is
not harmful at all.But chances of rhythm dis order can not be ruled out, if it is there
you are definately concerned and need treatment for that. If you do not have insurance
should go to Government hospital.Single visit to doctor may not help you much,since.
you do not have it continuously and may need Holters monitoring foe 24 hrs. Take
care Thanks
