Common Questions and Answers about Depression symptoms worse in the 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.
Avatar n tn He went to see a psychiatrist and was told that he is having a GAD and advise to take 0.25mg of xanax in the morning,at noon and half of xanax at night and also to increase his luvox to 150 mg. Is this the right advise ?
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 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 you can of course ask for a counselor, just to get a support through difficult times and all, but when the primary cause - the main reason for your symptoms in the first place is found, you have nailed your depression too. And really: If you have gone through difficult times lately - loosing a job, feeling lonely, echonomy, finding the right diet - those are things that could be making you much more emotional too. It could become a depression.
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.
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.
5368438 tn?1366988615 I don't consider myself to be beautiful, gorgeous or anything--that's why when people call me stuff like that I let it go in one ear and out the other. I rarely post pictures of myself to the internet because I'm afraid people will make fun of me so Instead I used cartoons or pictures of celebrities. I have suicidal thoughts. I've never attempted to kill myself but I do think about it sometimes. I even once, Googled ways on how to kill yourself.
Avatar f tn Well here we are at 23 days , things really fell apart for me Thursday in the afternoon, have continued to get worse. Called doc said to take my prozac up 4 mg , started last nite. This anexity is so bad I need to supplement with a higher dose of klonopin. Can't believe all this , guess I'll try to give it 2 more weeks . I have appt with doc the 25th. This has been the pits.
Avatar f tn Since I am alone, my ex-husband took me to my treatments very early in the morning and waited an hour and took me home. The patient is not allowed to do anything for the rest of the day. Usually I just stayed in bed for the most part.
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 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.
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 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 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.
Avatar f tn Yeah Do not Suck it up, Hey listen Jessica, I'm kind of in the same shoes you're in right now, that's the reason why I got on this forum, One question, do you get the feelings of the "Butterflies in the stomach" But they're so unbearable and Annoying and they're there for no reason?
Avatar n tn Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
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 Tough, extreme anxiety during the days but need the WB for the depression. Anyway....felt like nodes started to flare up, lower back, under arms neck, week 4 and 2 day's after the encounter just yesterday and today feels like mono, had that before, no fever but have had a rash on upper back and mid back, dermotologist on 3/10 dx clobe., has worked on most but one mid back doesn't seem to respond. The rash started about 1 week maybe 1.5 weeks after encounter (2/7).
Avatar n tn During the night quite often and in the morning and usually just the left eye but sometimes in the right. Just wondering if you have tried anything that helps or have found out any new information!
Avatar f tn When I wake up in the morning my anxiety is the worst! The generalized anxiety leaves me feeling overwhelmed and in fear of the most trivial things! This effected not only my quality of life, but the ability to take care of myself, let alone my family and home! I had to move into my mothers house (so she could take care of me) from the severity of my panic attacks/anxiety; leaving my poor husband to take care of my 3 yr old son. As a result I ended up having depression as well.
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 Keep in mind when posting on any forum, the quality of your post equals the quality of the response. Explain in detail what you need. Being vague, as you did, gets a limited response. People may exhibit all the symptoms of a disease yet may ignore or not believe it is happening to them. They go on forums looking for an answer, yet all the while know testing is the only answer.
Avatar f tn Pregnancy causing a sway of progesterone/estrogen(estrodiol) levels and when that takes place the thyroid is working very hard at the time you are pregnant. When you deliver the baby - the female hormones shut down in a sort to heal you after the birth and so the other hormones ( thyroid adrenal) are now confused and can sway you into hypothyroidism. You are obviously being put through the "you're fine" Dx - in your doctors office, but you know you are not.
Avatar f tn What can I do about this besides wear the compression leg wear? I was diagnosed type 1 diabetes and in the icu when the clots developed... but I don't have circulation problems due to diabetes or neuropathy- I didn't have high bg for long enough to develop this. All this leg pain etc. developed after the dvt.
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.
Avatar f tn Sorry to hear about your husband, that's terrible... Sounds like your in a great place at the moment (despite the morning sickness... I've been really lucky, 10weeks 3 days pregnant and only vomited twice :-) most days apart from being tired I don't even feel pregnant! I figure after trying for 6 yrs and going through IVF I deserve a smooth pregnancy!
165308 tn?1323190145 I've also noticed that my anxiety is usually higher first thing in the morning or in the evening after work. On the right medicine, that will eventually go away. Or get less at least. In my experience, I found that the best doctors to discuss the medications with are psychiatrists. They specialize in these types of meds and know more about depression and anxiety than your PCP. Good luck!!!
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.
