    Wake up suddenly

    Hi everyone,

    I've just joined this forum.
    I hope I can use your experience and help you whenever I can.
    As my first question, I'd like to know if there's any phrase meaning 'waking up suddenly' in the night while you don't intend to. Just as you hear some bad noise or you have a nightmare.

    Re: Wake up suddenly

    At the moment, I can think only of 'wake (up) with a start'.
