Do I have claustrophobia? What can I do?

When I am laying down or sitting on a couch, sometimes I feel like I am confined and the only remedy is for me to stand up. Even if there is no logical reason for me to feel confined, I feel this unfamiliar, slightly panicky feeling. What is strange about this is that if the I don't happen to think about this feeling then it doesn't show up. But if I am laying down and remember that I have this feeling sometimes, it instantly comes back. I have to forget this feeling in order to get any sleep at all. It has affected my sleep as I have to stand up constantly, usually when I am getting most comfortable.
As a side question, how can I get rid of this??? I miss my sleep!
