Sudden cold feeling that wakes me up from a deep sleep

Two weeks ago I was lying on my back asleep, when I suddenly felt an ice cold breeze that woke me up. The first thought that popped into my imaginative mind was that there was a ghost, and I didn't take it seriously. Then last night I was lying on my side or stomach asleep, and I felt the heat suddenly drain from my body, which scared me and I woke up with a pounding heart. I have never experience anything like this before and I am 31. I also have been having a lot of night sweats. Could this be symptoms of a thyroid disease or sleep panic attacks?

Thank you for your responses in advance!

  • Have been having the same experiences for 3-4 years now, waking up with a start because it feels like a cold breath or band round my wrist. Sometimes on my feet or stomach under the sheet but that's not often. And often wake with that cold draining feeling creeping over me. Really HATE it. Wtf is it??
