Fear of the dark and fear of sleep

I guess I have recently realized That i have two fears that seem to work hand in hand. I cannot stand to be alone in the dark or i start to hyperventilate. I feel as if someones looming over me. and when the light is on i feel utter relief. But then when i try to go to sleep i keep blinking my eyes back open and i have on and off panic attacks for what seems like hours. staring at walls for even up to 8 hours every night.i finally pass out during the day. Sometimes i get so terrified i cant even bare to lay down and so i just run out the room. i know it sounds utterly ridiculous but i guess its the idea that if im not concious how will i know whats going on around me
