Anxiety upon waking

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety upon waking


1726194 tn?1310178350 Well, you're definitely not alone! I too have anxiety and depression upon waking up, especially today. Why today? I don't know. Partly because I didn't sleep but 3 hours, and that always makes me feel panicky. I woke up at 4:30 and could not get back to sleep, and that was the one little worry that set off my anxiety. When I got up with my daughter at 7:30 I had to take a Xanax, because my anxiety was really kicking in. Then I was able to get a little sleep while she played.
Avatar f tn This used to happen to me, but my doctor started me on Propranalol 40 mg x 2 times daily. 1 b4 bed n 1 upon waking. It stopped it!! Another thing i find help emmensly is before going to bed and also when waking up make yourself a bowl of porriadge, oats are a extremely good way to stabilze your glucose level... DO NOT add sugar, just add the milk and oats, cook and eat it like that, the heat will relax you internally as well as the oats doing their job.
7746843 tn?1393863775 I wake up at least 3 times throughout. I have been noticing a change in my mornings for the past 2 weeks or so. When upon waking up my heart feels like its pounding/racing at the same time. I thought it was just my imagination but one morning my boyfriend put his head up to my chest and made a comment without me asking to listen to my heart. I also feel like my body is extremely tense throughout the night and upon waking up.
Avatar n tn I am a 34 YO Fem who is suffering from nausea upon waking followed in 15 - 30 min by vomitting of just ALLOT OF stomach acid and maybe a bit of water that I try to keep down on a daily basis now for about a month and a half. I have tried seven up and other things with no luck to raise sugar along with food (that ended fast), tums and mentally trying to phych myself out of it. I have not seen a doc as seems silly but getting worried a bit.
Avatar m tn I am a 48 year old female. I have a problem with total boby tingling upon waking, even my head and face, sometimes feeling like I have been breathing too shallow. This has been happening for about one yr. I occassionally have tingling throughtout the day in my legs, arms, and scalp. I spoke to my pcp about this problem and he said "That doesn't make since" and changed the subject. When sleeping I periodically wake with an arm, leg, or my side tingling.
Avatar m tn Six times in the past two weeks, upon waking from sleep, I have noticed a moving spot in both eyes. I first thought it was a spider moving across the white wall of the bedroom. So much so that I got out of bed to look for a shoe. The second time, I woke and saw it on the ceiling. Same thing; I rose and picked up a shoe to kill it, and then realized that there wasn't anything there.
446896 tn?1237806342 Hello, I have read some posts on here that describe my problem and I'm wondering if any of you have found the answers to your bouts of tachycardia after eating and upon waking in the morning. I am a 30 year old female, in OK shape, very healthy weight, and no real health problems. I have had a normal EKG and a 48 hour holter monitor with unremarkable results in the last 6 months, and I have no known major health issues.
Avatar n tn I too experience pain in my "kidney are" upon waking. Throughout the week I get minimal sleep; five hours maximum, and waking with NO pain, but when the weekend comes, and I am sleeping more than that is when I experience this horrible pain. So, I know for a fact that the pain is directly related to sleep (for me). I first went to my MD, and was told that it is muskuloskeletal, and that Motrin should help. No dice.
Avatar m tn I just have a hard time reproducing this effect other than in the mornings upon first waking. I was unable to produce the symptom in my first visit. My only other symptom is a slight off-balance feeling which i tend to have 24/7.
Avatar n tn ) and basically some nervous system damage from the above mentioned things. However, these symptoms upon waking from sleep are new, and are getting a bit unnerving. Every single time I wake up, except for twice in the last two weeks, give-or-take, I'm having the tingling in the lips and "whooshing" tingling in my head and neck. I am 33 years old, married, and to look at me you wouldn't know I was "sick" or there was anything ever wrong with me.
Avatar n tn Ribcage pain/ diaphragm pain with deep breathing upon waking was started.
Avatar n tn You may want to investigate yourself by taking your blood pressure upon waking up and see if this becomes elevated, as well as your heart rate. Regards.
Avatar f tn My problem is that I have been waking up in morning with a strange visual disturbance.--I see wavy lines, shapes and patterns, sometimes It looks like I am looking through a kaliedoscope. I have a history of optic migrains--but this is different.. little history--I snore and I talk in my sleep sometimes. smoke but do not drink alcohol. I take 10mg of lexapro every morning. no other drugs. I have vitelliform macular dystrophy--a rare eye disorder--symptoms similar to macular degeneration.
Avatar m tn It appears that with deep rem sleep dreams are mostly of a fearful quality and are not remembered upon waking hours but the psycy has experienced them and creates anxiety which is a anxious type of unfear. Light sleep dreams are more cheerful in nature and are remembered during the waking hours. Studies down with anxiey patients show they have more deep rem sleep, compared to non anxiety patients.
Avatar n tn So sorry for your hell. Stress could be the main culprit, and diet. Unfortunately I am experienced in this area. Meditation-before bed and upon waking. exercise helps a great deal as it releases endorphins in your body and it is "you" time. As for natural treatment - A glycerite tincture of Passionflower, Skullcap, and Valerian. Or just Passionflower in any form. Remove all forms of caffeine and SUGAR (very important). Drink oatstraw tea 3 times a day.
Avatar f tn Hi, I just stopped taking hydrocodone this week, I was taking anywhere from 4 a day to 20 day depending on what was going on in my life. I feel today I am experiecing alot of anxiety. It feels like my body is just tied up in knots. My brain keeps telling me to take a pill it will take the edge off.. I did give all my pills to my husband, he has control of them ( it is was the only way I could do it was finally tell someone I had a problem) I feel like I am not going to be happy again either.
Avatar f tn Sometimes I'm anxiety free, other times I'm a wreck. For the past 6 months I've been suffering bad anxiety. My anxiety used to only occur during the day, but now it's happening during the night (for the past 3 months or so). I used to sleep a straight 8-9 hours, no problem. Now I sleep only 1-2 hours at a time. This all started when I got a duodenal ulcer several months ago and would wake up during the night with severe "hunger" pains.
Avatar f tn Thank you i was monitoring bs for a week was always fine even upon waking...
Avatar m tn Lately during the middle of the night, I have been waking up, and upon standing about 30 second post stand, my heart rate increases to say 120-135 level. The heartbeat is forceful, and the odd thing is it will fluctuate between fast, and then slow down a bit, then speed up, then slow down. This happens for about a minute and then it returns to normal. Its odd because when I wake up in the morning I do not feel this, and if I nap it never happens.
