Hello I have suffered from anxiety especially health anxiety for some time. I did have it largely under control but due to some recent medication and health problems I find myself very anxious. Now I am not sure if this anxiety is due to the medication I took 3/4 weeks ago which does have this as a side effect and I have gp appointment tomorrow. My question is about waking up early in an anxious state. I wake up around 5-5.30 every morning and within a short time the anxiety sets in I have tried deep breathing relaxation and medication tapes but nothing really works. I have pain from arthritis and other health problems and find it hard sometimes having to cancel arrangements because I feel unwell or am in pain. I just lie there till about 7-715am which is the time I like to get up. Does anyone think it would be better to get up straight away. I don't sleep in the day but do tend to fall asleep on the sofa around 9-10pm. Thank you.
