Strange feeling when waking up??

Posted , 5 users are following.

Okay so lately I've had these awful experiences when it comes to waking up on a morning. The best I can explain it is that I've been knocked unconscious or in a coma or something and I have to try EXTREMELY hard to gain consciousness.

So first I'll open my eyes and feel like I'm not fully 'there' and try my best to get my eye sight focused.

Then I'll try to sort movement out. First I'll attempt moving an arm maybe, then my head, then trying to turn over in bed. I have to do everything in steps like this. I feel very disoriented and it is just awful. I'm starting to dread falling asleep because of this process of waking up. I'm so scared that something is wrong inside my head and this is a warning sign not to go to sleep.

Please help. I'm at my wits end.

    It sounds like sleep paralysis, but people who get it don't get it every morning.

    See your doctor for reassurance.

    Fall asleep with tv on or radio. You will know when you are woke
