Our expert says:
Psychologist: Night panic or nocturnal panic attacks, are common with individuals who experience panic attacks.
Panic is often not triggered by external events or things, but happens at an unconscious level. Individuals often have panic attacks at unexpected times, as panic attacks come suddenly when unconscious mental processes are triggered by internal bodily or physiological changes. When these changes happen at bight as the body shifts its biological rhythms, panic may be the result.
