Hello,am Dr Mahesh,general physician.So as you stated i think its your stress level seems high.Think what made you to get up at 4am.If you are allergic to some component of chocalate then check out.In your place i would have taken good amount of fluid and got rid of that stress.If sweting/pain is present or some kind of heavyness in chest then consult physician/nurse without any delay.
