You should explore the reasons WHY it would be in your sleep. Is that when you feel most vulnerable ( likely)? Did someone harm/abuse you when you were sleeping--maybe as a child? Are you in conflict with someone? Having nightmares? Perhaps if you can resolve the comflict, the nighttime fear will dissipate/ disappear. Drugs like cocaine can make you paranoid too. Just some thoughts. I hope it helps. Life is so much more complicated than 1 question! Good luck!
Sleep with a sheathed knife under your pillow. If you own a handgun, put one in your dresser. Lock your windows and doors and you'll have plenty of time to get either if someone attempts to break in. That would ease my mind, anyway. Hopefully you'll get over the fear eventually.

I feel the same way I have security camera a gun in a safe next to my bed alarm system and I still freak out at night ...I think it is mental and has a lot to do with my anxiety, but I have felt this way for years...look into seeing a councilor for anxiety cuz it really sounds like that to me , or just google it and see what you think lol..
