Does anyone feel like your eyes just never "wake up" all the way...like all day long they feel as though you've just woke up and there heavy or swollen feeling and like you just cant snap out of it..?....curious to who else feels this. Utah
Its my eyes and head that dont seem to snap out of this funky funk... all damn day long...some days more tolerable than others but that's it.....havent felt normal eyes or head for a year and a half now... It really blows. drives me insane sometimes to the point of a potential break down...blah.
Hi - yes, I have that problem with my eyes also. Some days are worse than others - like you no other part of my body seems tired but my eyes feel tired and heavy. My head doesn't feel right either when I have this eye problem. I feel as if my whole face "looks drained" when I have this problem. Have no idea what causes it and what can be done. I have gone to bed early etc in the hope that it will go but I know for a fact its not lack of sleep 'cause I sleep very well!! If you ever find a solution to this let us know. It makes me depressed when I feel like this as I am always wondering what is the cuase?.
Half of my damn anxiety is because of staring at my huge sags in the mirror. Between the dark bags and my pale complexion, I look almost deathly. My girlfriend mentions that the brim of the lower lid is almost purple sometimes. I absolutely hate it... I have no idea what to do about it.
In fact, even after nights where I feel like I have a quality sleep, I wake up as if I didn't rest at all. What the hell is that? My eyes feel tired, and the bags underneath them are terribly unnatractive.
I know what you mean about waking up and feeling you didnt rest at all....happens to me as well...it's the damn anxiety affecting us even when we sleep...prob on a subconscious level.... I hate it too man.
Yes that's exactly it! How can anxiety nail you in your sleep? That is friggin' MESSED. It makes you wonder if it's not strictly a breating pattern issue?
I have heard on numerous occasions that those with anxiety breath shallow breaths from their upper chest. Everytime I wake up I'm breating from this area rapidly. I've tried taking deep breaths from my lower abs, you know the stomach area... but it never translates to a complete breathing pattern overhaul.
