Thanks for your query.
Firstly, coughing out blood should be investigated at the earliest : it can be due to either a lung infection
, such as tuberculosis
, lung abscess
etc..; recurrent pulmonary embolisms; or, due to heart failure
during sleep (called nocturnal dyspnea) as part of impending heart failure.
Hence, get a thorough cardiac and lungs' evaluation done AT THE EARLIEST.
The possible causes of sudden sleep, night terrors
, transient numbness
of limbs and catatonic attacks are:- either a type of epilepsy
(called Absence seizures in Adults) or; constant anxiety with acute Panic reactions. An MRI of brain + EEG should be done at the earliest.
If both : MRI and EEG reports are normal, a regular course of anti-anxiety+ anti-depressant drugs will be of great help.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he will agree with me, order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable/modified treatment as advised.
