Raised heart rate, cold sweat in sleep. Why is it happening?

Sometimes when I m between the state of awake and asleep or if I just driffted off, I will sudenly wake up with my heart racing and in a cold sweat. Could it just be a nightmare I don t remember? But even the ones I do remember don t do this to me, I just wake up a little dazed and then I usualy relax and go back to sleep. But with this it takes me a while for my heart to slow down again.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

These are following possibilty in your case:
-Night terror
-Anxiety spell during sleep
-Seizure: less likely

Your treatment will depend on cause of headache. So get yourself evaluated for above causes.

Irrespective of cause, following steps will help you to some extent:
-Follow steps of sleep hygiene.
-Healthy diet: Milk and fruits in diet.
-Daily morning brisk walk
-Breathing exercise and meditation (which you can learn from some expert in person)

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
