Night time eating.

I have a strongly beating heart and racing thoughts and I have to eat to get to sleep at night.  Eating makes my heart beat less strongly snd my mind stops racing.  I then fall asleep.

Every couple of hours, I wake with the same thing happening a strongly beating heart and racing thoughts, and again, in order to get back to sleep, I have to eat something as it, again, makes my heart beat more gently, and my mind stops racing.

This  happens continuously through the night.  It is not a blood sugar issue as I have had a fasting glucose test and I never get hypo symptoms i.e. sweating, shaking etc.

I have tested negative for lupus and other autoimmune disorders.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before?

I would be grateful for any suggestions.
