bear, sonds like there could be an overlap of problems here, including anxiety, panic and maybe depression as well. What you really need is to see a good local psychiatrist for a full assessment of these symptoms, and a discussion of advisable treatment in relation to what the assessment identifies. And one can have night terrors, like nighttime panic attacks, with the severe anxiety but withoyut the remembered content of a nightmare. All of this can respond really well to proper treatment.
