Re: why do i feel so bad in a morning ?........
It happens to me, especially on Mondays or days when I canít sleep at night. When I wake up, I start thinking about how I am going to survive another day and if I will have the strength to make it to work, I start thinking about all of the things that I need to do today and I start to panic and get anxiety. Sometimes it gets worse when I am in the shower and I am in that little room by myself getting ready for work. I try to get out of there as quickly as possible. However, as the day goes on my mind gets preoccupied on whatever I am doing and my mind eases on the worries so then I feel better.

Increased anxiety in the morning is common among anxiety sufferers. Supposedly that is when one's cortisol levels are highest. I'm sorry the beta blockers aren't working for you. If you happen to be at an age typical for perimenopause, you might want to check into possible hormonal imbalances.

If you are having the problem of anxiety then don't ignore it. Find out the reasons why you are having this health issue? When you find the reason try to solve this with help of doctors, psychiatrist. If both of them are not able to solve this issue then go for a counseling & I think counselor will definitely solve your issue.

I've read someone say once that the anxiety when first waking up is the body giving you a shot of adrenalin to wake you up. but yeah, I get that sometimes too.

The worst time for me with anxiety seems to be afternoon and just before dinner, because I am not working right now, and I hate it.

Re: why do i feel so bad in the morning?
Sounds to me like a hormone and perimenopause issue. I am 48 and have been going through this for a few years now. Night sweats, panic and anxiety and weird body sensations. I had my hormone levels tested and mine are lowest in the morning. I have often had a panic attack upon awaking and couldn't figure out why when I had been sleeping and restful. But people including men tend to have their hormones drop lowest in the am. I am on progesterone cream and it seems to help. But as I am aging it doesn't seem to be working like it used to. Here I am with insomnia tonight and itchy skin. Ugh! Hang in there. Try not to panic. Just come on here and you will have someone to talk to. Take care! I am here for you!
