Wake up, have panic attack. Repeat every morning.

Recently, I have been getting panic attacks when I wake up in the mornings. My heart starts to race, I get shaky and feel like I have to throw up. I have been stressed out lately because of my job, money problems, etc. I've tried so many things to help me to stop worrying and stressing myself out, but I keep having the panic attacks every morning when I wake up!

I would appreciate any suggestions except those that suggest medication, mainly because I can't afford it. Thanks!

Sometimes, if the anxiety is that bad, medication is a good and sensible action to take. I went to a naturopath first, and tried many many natural alternatives, but in the end, medication has fixed my anxiety.

Im not condoning medication, but its something you might have to consider. Also, cant you get a health card from your government to help with the medication costs?

I used to have really bad mornings as well. I suggest getting up 10-15 minutes earlier than you are now and setting aside that time to meditate. You can buy a CD of guided meditation for $10 probably.

Re: Wake up, have panic attack. Repeat every morning.

hey plurb, sorry 2 hear your going thru this:-( ive had anxiety for a while and went thru a stage where mornings were the worst and id wake up normally then 2 seconds later when your head gets around the fact that youre fully awake i got heart pounding nausia and it was so horrible. i think the feelings of worrying about having it are actually worse than the symptoms themselves. i havnt for like this in the mornings for a while because im not as stressed out. there is no quick fix really you need to establish if you have anxiety or depression and whether its been a longterm thing. but if you are generally a happy person and have been feeling slightly stressed cos of your job etc i would say anxiety medication would be the best antidote for you.make sure you dont go doctors and take the pills like theyre smarties! make sure you found out side effects and if they are addictive or you mit end up feling worse:-s good luck!!
