Is your anxiety worse in the morning?

I've noticed my anxiety is always worse in the morning. Some times when I go to bed I feel almost normal.. then the next morning, right when I wake up I get that anxious feeling in my stomach, heart racing, shaky, etc... I don't drink coffee, I take fish oil and a centrum multivitamin every morning. Anyone else get this? If so, what are some things you do to help? (apart from the obvious, like popping a xanax or ativan)

Re: Is your anxiety worse in the morning?

Hi. I know exactly how you feel! Every morning I would wake up and feel so anxious before going to college. Is it possible that you could feel anxious about going to school/college/work? That was the case for me. I had gotten it into my head that college was exactly like school (which i dreaded going to) and that made me anxious but i managed to convince myself otherwise.

My anxiety is worse in the morning and at night. I think this is because I'll be worrying about tomorrow and the upcoming events.

If your on meds, your meds are wearing off, plus, it's the thought of having to face the world. All snuggled up in your bed is a safe place to be.

Yea I was on 20 mg prozac, so I recently got my doc to up it to 40 mg. It's true I really don't want to get out of bed, it's so comfy... and I get anxiety about work too, so I'm sure that doesn't help. Maybe I should do some yoga every morning or something. lol
