If you are serious, you are in deep trouble. Number 1 is get some proper rest over the next few days. Then if you still feel messed up, see your doctor/psychiatrist. I'm not joking here.
Back in late '99 I was finishing up my final year lab project and got maybe a few hours sleep between 4am to 8am for about a week. Quite serious sleep deprivation.
I would hit the bed at 4am, then suddenly at 7am I feel like there is a presence in the room (felt for some reason like my cousin that died when he was a kid), and that somehow my life force was draining out of me, and felt like my eyes were open and I am looking around my room but I can't scream or move). Seemed to last for "a few minutes" and I would wake up suddenly. Happened a few times in that week I was sleep deprived.
Can't explain in too much detail, but this bout of sleep deprivation triggered some further psychiatric issues years down the line.
