Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms worse in morning


1423878 tn?1282887232 Another thing that has been happening is that when I wake up in the morning it seems to be worse. I wake up short of breath and get heart palps. I am so scared of doing anything strenious because I am afraid if I do my heart is going to stop and I am going to drop dead. I have no health ins to go have my problem addressed and want to hear from other people with the same symptoms to find out what they do to control it.

4754423 tn?1364113317 i am suffering from leg and back pain for the past 1 year. it gets worse in the early morning. gets better with movement / activity. 1 year before, i was severe depression for a continuous period of 3 months . has that got anything to do with this? i took some antidepressants for 3 weeks (mirtazapine & clonazepam) , can that be the reason?
Avatar m tn It goes with the lack of energy and is another depression symptom which goes with what you describe. Is it worse in the morning or evening? ANother standard psychiatrist question. The reason they ask this is many depressions are worse in the morning and relieve some during the day. Thus we tend to stay awake late as we fell OK and want to not wake up. It's called diurnal variation and is a key indicator.
Avatar n tn 1. What b/c are you taking? Are you taking any kind of other medicines? 2. When do you get the dizziness and flushes? Is your bloodpressure changing?) Some contraceptives make a depression worse. What I think has happened now, is that the underlying condition was not treatable with the contraceptives. They maybe helped you with getting a normal period, but what was it that brought you off the cycle?
Avatar n tn You will know its withdrawal because its worse in the morning, it comes in waves and links in with your periods. Take 5HTP its natural from the health shop you can go up to 400 mgs aday whilst suffering W/D. I take 200 in the morning it converts to seretonin and 200 of a night converts to melatonin. Hang on in there coming off these pills effects brain chemistry for months these pills store in the fat in our bodies.
5368438 tn?1366988615 Many of us still battle with our depression daily, some worse than others. But, don't feel alone, because you're not. Also, find a good support system in your real life too, friends, family...confide in someone you feel comfortable with. It's nice to have someone keep an eye on you, and lend a shoulder when you need it. NEVER be afraid to reach out for help, it's not a sign of weakness, or a character flaw, nothing of the sort. Please keep us updated okay? Hang in there!

Avatar n tn Hi all I'm new on the forum, nice to have the possibility to chat with people in the same situation. I'm in week 37 and trubled with the depression. I'm on CELEXA but this doesn't seem to help too much. I'm crying a lot and feel like **** all the day. I started to smoke and this makes things worse. Is the depression going to lift after treatment? I'm scared.
Avatar f tn I have this horrible trend of falling asleep face down on things - one of my friends found me face down on a book in the library, and I keep falling asleep in 10-min breaks in long lessons and face down on my computer while doing work at night. It's funny, because a few years ago, I used to have episodes where I could go a mile a minute for hours and days, and whenever I mention this, I get raised eyebrows, but this is no more.
Avatar f tn Hello, In answers to various questions I have been asked. First of all I am a 50s something female. This forum has me listed as a male and I have no idea why. I did initally start writing answers to questions with my first response. It ended up being too long. I saved it in word and went back after I did respond and just closed the document with 29 typed pages so far.
Avatar m tn In the meantime, today is the same - less woozy in the morning, gets worse in the afternoon until I feel almost feverish. Evening gets a bit better, though my head feels very heavy, and arms are sometimes sore. This is all so weird.
Avatar f tn That's the high. The lows are just the same as depression generally, they just seem worse because you drop from so high. Certainly get to a doc quick and chanmge those meds. I took lithium well before I was diagnosed as bp. It's a mood stabiliser which simply evens out the fluctuations in mood. You don't need to be bp to take it. It would be my suggestion for you to discuss with your doce. Lithium or any other mood stabiliser. And they work almost overnight too, no weeks waiting on them.
Avatar f tn I have a really hard time falling asleep at night and even when I do, when I wake up in the morning it feels like I haven't slept at all. When something bad happens at school, I go home and dwell on it for hours. It feels like the littlest things upset me that others wouldn't even think twice about. Sometimes I get scared I'm even crazy for worrying as often as I do. I have been developing headaches and I have not been eating properly at all.
Avatar f tn After my son was born in September of 2002 The nausea got worse. I felt as if my morning sickness never went away. In 2004 I had an ovarian cyst and while surgery was being preformed to remove the cyst, they found endometriosis. In January of 2008 I had a cyst rupture. Since then the abd pain has gotten worse.
2190999 tn?1504992491 Today was okay in the morning/afternoon. It was 70 here in Texas so I hit the garden. My favorite place. All 8 months pregnant and on my hands and knees. Then I napped till my boys got home from school. I woke up from said nap in a horrible mood!! Im blaming being preggo on this one. Just uncomfortable and pissy. I'm almost 34 weeks and just want my body back! I'm HUGE! Not sure how to proceed next... It's a daily battle. I actually like my manic days. I feel accomplished.
Avatar m tn I take this around 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Very shaky in morning, unsteady for a bit..this may be because I'm taking the Wellbutrin around 8pm and the Xanax @ 9....Wake up every night @ 2a.m. and spend the rest of the night worrying and trying to get back to sleep. I may get one of those test kits form the Pharm. today and have the real stuff done next week.
Avatar f tn In your case, it will only make matters worse if you don't. If you wish to continue to ask questions and sit in the dark, don't get tested.
1536712 tn?1294046901 morning: good... Early afternoon: good... Late afternoon: not good.. Evening : bad I'm gonna keep a diary of whats going on and look for patterns. I do already notice that recovery is happening faster... But very small increments of improvement. Looking forward to first whole day of good.. Then 2 days... A week! Etc...
Avatar m tn I also have hyperadrenic dysautonomia, which gets a lot, lot worse in stressful situations, or in the heat. This year I have deteriorated, which *****, because at the start of the year I really felt the best I had in so long. Simple things like changing jobs or, in your case, moving, can seem to make things a lot worse for people...but it will get better! Just make sure that you self care, and don't push yourself too hard. Only you can know your body!
Avatar f tn I can't get up in the morning, I am missing out on so much of my life with my kids!! I am only 27 years old. I am desperate to get the help I need to feel better. My levels may be "in the normal range" but this is not normal for me; I know my body! I appreciate any help or comments you may have to offer :) THANK YOU!
Avatar f tn hello, last may I had a dvt in my left popliteal vein, a blood clot in my arm and symptoms in my right leg also which didn't show up on ultrasounds, but I'm sure there was a clot there also. I was on warfarin for 6 months and I went off it a month ago as the left leg showed to be dissolved and free of the clot. As I went off warfarin the symptoms of tingling/pain, muscle spasm and blood flowing around in my calfs and pooling in my feet worsened.
Avatar n tn The last two days my mood has taken a turn for the worse, i sat this morning crying into my cereal and talking to myself in the mirror telling myself what a loser i am. I just feel so emotional and keep crying for no reason. I am told time and time again that with standard anti-d's you feel worse before getting better but is this the same with SJW???? My CPN n shrink knw im starting SJW but they are not experts on it so there is no point asking them for advice.
165308 tn?1323190145 I worked up until 2 weeks ago when the anxiety and depression got so bad I decided to quit my job. All I can say is that trying to talk to people in the morning helps. Small talk and chatting, not deep conversations about how bad I feel. Exercise is a HUGE, HUGE help although I never feel like doing it before hand (duh!). I also have the same worries about how this will all influence my daughter.
523927 tn?1257022304 Stiffness is worse in the morning. However, in general my other neuropathic pain symptoms seen generally relieved by sleep. They tend to worsen over the day. So overall, the morning is much better for me, despite the added stiffness.
Avatar f tn I have elevated cortisol in the morning and cannot sleep at night. any suggestions? my dr gave me thyroid medication that I took for the past 2 and half years. that causes my feet to become red and iron defiency.
Avatar f tn If I wait too long to eat, even if I don't feel sick beforehand, I tend to start feeling shaky, although this is definitely more likely to happen if I haven't eaten because of nausea and can't eat once I start feeling okay again. Also, when I get nauseous, even if it's not in the morning, I get worse if I'm warm; I have to be cool to even start to feel better.
Avatar n tn The next morning it was the same thing. This continued for months every day, my nausea being worse especially in the morning and late night. I went to a number of gastroenterologists and had endoscopies, colonoscopies, upper gi's, emptying tests, etc. done and mostly everything came back normal with the exception of a few minor details.
Avatar f tn Moms, please if your son has this issue please get them tested for the MTHFR mutation before too much time passes. It seems that in the majority of the boys that have this major depression/anxiety sets in around 18 yrs of age. (This happened to my son) We are now seeing a wonderful DR that has put him on Deplin.
