Anxiety upon waking

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety upon waking


Avatar f tn Hi there, I wanted to mention that I recognize a few of your symptoms that I have, as an anxiety disorder. Have you been diagnosed with anxiety or panic attacks? It hit home when I saw that your husband was doing grocery shopping. I had a panic attack in a grocery store back in the 90's and my husband did all of our shopping for a long long time It was determined that my thyroid was not working right. While I was in the normal range it was very low.
7746843 tn?1393860175 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 f tn I experienced extreme anxiety upon waking after my appendectomy a week ago. I am experiencing increased anxiety upon waking from sleep now at home. Can the two be related. I am trying to control the anxiety I am now having. Its pretty overwhelming & very alarming. Will this continue to get worse or will it diminish quickly? Or is there any way to know since everyone is different.
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 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 m tn Very interesting you just posted this. I got on this morning to ask the same question. I feel like I have a pretty good handle on my anxiety during the day, but I wake up with a strange fear feeling every morning as well. I am also taking Lexapro. Once I get up and going, I'm usually ok, but upon waking, I am extremely nervous and afraid, but not of anything in particular. I'd love to hear from others. I've also wondered if it is just general anxiety causing this or the meds.
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.
446896 tn?1237802742 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 f tn I generally experience panic attacks first thing in the morning upon waking. And when this happens the feeling seems to last for a couple of days at a time. I recently started taking Klonopin 0.5 milligram. The Klonopin helps me sleep peacefully but of course I awaken in the morning with the same anxious feeling that radiates from my head to my feet. Can I take klonopin during the day? Is Xanax a better option?
Avatar m tn I have been experiencing a strobe-like effect of flashing light in my full field vision immediately upon waking that last for just a few seconds and then resolves. Not experiencing any other flashes throughout the day. I am about 3 months post-op bilateral laser rentinopexy for retinal tear in one eye and asymptomatic retinal hole in the other. Also 3 months of significantly increased anxiety as a result. Retinal specialist states everything looks good.
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.
Avatar m tn s quite hard for me to sleep while breathing on my nose. I usually get dry mouth upon waking up. Idk, I felt really fine falling asleep. But then I read about Sleep Apnea I feel like I'm having it. I don't really know. But I got really anxious while falling alseep, and I wake up like a few seconds. I don't really know if it's just all in my head, or do I really have sleep apnea.
Avatar f tn I am constantly worried about this. Thank you! ps My heart has started racing upon waking in the night also.
