Dreams/dizziness/Circadian cycles/naps

Sometimes, I've been up to the experience of feeling, while asleep, as if I 
were extremely dizzy... eventually, I may be dreaming about some nasty 
situation (someone trying to suffocate me, a beautiful dream being 
interrupted by this, etc.)... moreover, I sometimes perceive a high-pitched 
sound in my ear, what makes the experience twice as unconfortable.

I think I read somewhere, that this "hypogogic" (sp?) thing can be related 
to the fact that one could be breaking one's circadian cycle, by sleeping, 
say, some hours in the afternoon, if you are used to sleep 8 hours in the 
night. I think I can relate to this, but, has anyone more information on the 
causes of this thing?

Thank you.
