Feeling run down

Posted , 8 users are following.

Do any of you feel like you tend to wake up to more anxious jittery feelings in the mornings? I wake up feeling anxious, with chest palpitations, shaky feelings in my legs and stuffy nose and head feelings. Then by night time I am fine like none of this happened earlier in the day. Anyone else get this?

    I'm the opposite. Wake up feeling OK, then a few hours later I'm in an anxiety tailspin. I am also feeling horribly rundown. I just want to sleep all day.

    Yes. I feel run down myself. I know I sleep BUT the quality may not be there which I'm not sure how to fix. But it could be the anxiety that does it as well. Some mornings the anxiety is really bad and other mornings 'I'm ok'. Can't pinpoint it exactly-- it could be what I eat, it could be unwanted pounds or just plan hormones. I take many vitamins so it's hard to believe I would be 'low' in something.

    Hello,

    Yes it's really common. It's because seratonin is at its lowest and cortisol at its highest. So you get the feeling of anxiety for the morning and as the day goes on you often feel better. I try to either work it off by a walk, or meditate to calm it xx

      Thanks Sassy. It seems to come and go from time to time. There have been mornings when I wake up feeling relatively fine. Then there are mornings like there have been for the past ten days that have driven me all but crazy.

    Yes, that's exactly how it is for me too. The only thing that seems to help consistently is getting up and getting out. It seems to reset my brain and when I get back from a walk it's more manageable xx
