I have had very weird panic-like episodes at night also. It always seems gloomier because it's night, and I try to remind myself that maybe that's part of it. I don't know, I guess I try to comfort myself with that reasoning.
Could the Benadryl have worsened the situation by making you feel kinda' "stoned?"

Starfall, Can you get anything to calm your nerves? Once this kinda crazy stuff starts happening, I use Valerian, skullcap, poppy, hops, kava and co. All are very potent nervines, so do your research and be careful. Chamomile tea at bedtime helps, too.
I had similar terrors everynight for several months. Horrible, awful, not of this world. These episodes developed after years of bedtime insomnia.
Once I got into treatment, I started crashing out on the couch and have not have any trouble falling asleep since. Thank God. I do have "late insomnia" now, though. Waking at ungodly hours.
Hold on, Starfall. We are here.

I'm sorry you had to go through this. I've gone through something sort of the same, but not exactly.
Just wanted to say that I too feel half dead today... so I know how you feel.
