boy do i feel bad in the morning

i used to be able to get up about 7 am in a morning, happy and singing along with the radio.
now it takes me all my time to get out of bed and i do feel really bad, dizzy, h/f, no energy and hot with palpitations.
is this normal? i dread getting up in the morning because i know i am going to feel sooooo bad, anyone else feel like this and why is this happening.
i am on hrt but it doesnt seem to help with these crappy mornings.

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

Yes, my waking up has changed a lot too. I'm lucky because I work at home, therefore I don't have an appointed time for my alarm call. I usually can't regain consciusness before eight-thirty/ nine and, if it's possible, I tend to book appointmens in the afternoon since it takes over two hours for my mind and body to start to function properly. In the morning my sy mptoms are:
Rapid heartbeat, a vague dizziness and nausea, fatigue (already!) brain fog, achy arms/back. And I'm also more prone to anxiety and panic.
Anything else? Lol.

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

I used to be a morning person, until 7 years ago, when I was diagnosed with hypothyroid. I'm not saying that peri can't cause this also, because I'm on meds and I'm still not back to the way I used to be, and all the other peri symptoms also now.
I just thought it was worth mentioning. When I went to the doc with my hypo symptoms ( I had never heard of it at that point) - and I told him -

'I just can't get up in the morning anymore - even after going to bed early'

That seemed to be the thing that made him suspect the hypo - extreme fatigue.
Now with menopause knocking at my door, It's just made all that (and more) worse.
Yes, it really it the pits!!!

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

I've been dealing with this morning anxiety and woosie feeling lately. What is interesting is that as the day progress I begin to feel alot better. By the evening I feel well. It would be interesting to learn what occurs with our hormones as we rest and why as the day progresses things seem to even out.

I'm glad that we can find other women here who understand, encourage, and even provide solutions as we transition through this time in our lives.

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

Hope.....you're like me. I seem to be worse in the mornings as well. I feel my best at night. In the mornings I'll lay in bed and start stressing about having alot to do and it not getting done because I don't feel up to it or that I feel bad.

The wooziness is the worst. It can hit me anytime of the day though, and sometimes only last a few minutes. I don't know if it's related to the neck stiffness or not, but it seems to be.

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

Oh wow! I can't believe you described my mornings I also feel bad when I first get up and am achy.

Does anyone else wake up achy too and feel like a 90 yr old women when they first get up. After I am up and about a bit I do feel better.

Good luck. Soon hopefully we'll all be on the other side of this

Hang in there,
hugs

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

Here I am. One thirty am and I'm wide awake and feeling great.
Boy, I can relate...
One suggestion for when you go to bed and you lie awake counting the hours left to sleep and thinking how miserable you will feel in the morning. I started to listen to audiobooks and for me it really works. It keeps my mind distracted and the soft lullabye of words shifts me into sleep without me noticing it.
Just a hint....

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

I can't believe it. I have all the above morning symptoms to/ I also start to feel better around mid morning. the anxiety is just horrible. I wake up anxious. Also I have been suffering with severe acid reflux. I wake up with a burning in my throat and sometimes im ny stomach.

Anyone else have reflux with these morning sypmtopms.

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

Same here. The very first day of this started at approx 5:30 am. I was jolted out of a deeps sleep as if I had a nightmare, don't remember anything ... within an hr of getting out of bed the anxiety kicked in.
The morning symptoms have become a pretty regular thing for me.
Shortly after getting up it would start, shakey, chills, hot feeling skin,(upper body) nausea ............ no need to go on with this list, everyone is very familiar

I've watched doctor after doctor scratch their heads when I tell them about the symptoms happening in the morning and gradually easing as the afternoon approaches. Usually by later afternoon it's gone I'm pretty worn out after the ordeal but I'm finally ready to start my day

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

chilli, exactly! And like you, thank goodness I work at home too because if I still had a job I had to go to, I don't know what I would do! I wake up with fatique, muscle and joint pain and all of the symptoms you've described. I wonder if it has something to do with being at rest all night, and as the day progresses we feel better because of circulation, etc??

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

I just thought that I'd share this with you ladies...for about the last two weeks I've switched from taking calcium and magnesium tablets to taking the powdered form and I've noticed improvement with how I feel in the morning. I've noticed a decrease in the hangover, woosie, lethargic, cotton head feeling that I get first thing in the morning. Of course I'm still in the trial and error stage...Now if I could find some way to stop this profuse sweating that occurs first thing in the morning. This too shall surely pass .

Re: boy do i feel bad in the morning

hopefully, is this a calcium/magnesium blend? How do you take it? Both morning and evening? Sorry for all the questions, but I think there is something to this. I was taking a chewable calcium/mag/vit 4 tablet for awhile both in the morning and evening, and recently ran out and switched to tablets with water. I have found I don't feel as well; hmmmm....maybe our bodies absorb the powdery forms better. Let me know on this and how many mg. it is each time. You don't have to give me a brand name, I will try and find it at my health food store.
