Panic attacks likely: Your symptoms would be alarming for most people, and i'm glad you've had a cardiac workup that's turned out normal. Good for you. Your symptoms are also very common in panic disorder -- including waking in the night with panic attacks. A psychiatrist should be able to help you with these attacks, and i see you're also in "behavior therapy." the two can work well together for you.
