I find that throughout the afternoon I'm typically fine but at night and right after waking up is when I get stressed and worried. I often wake up with a headache, feeling hungry, feeling sick, etc so it's explanatory why that doesn't help my HA but I don't know why I get grumpy at night.

Yep I definitely get it right before I sleep and later on in the day. Don't know why but I think maybe it's because at night I feel alone so I tend to go through things in my head,then it starts.

Mine is severe upon waking up. Knowing I have a whole.day of chaos and work ahead gives me anxiety. It usually dies down by mid afternoon and is best at night when the kids are in bed and I'm just relaxing.

I'm worse in the morning and during the day as I'm at home with the children on my own and have a lot of time time to 'think' about my fears and symptoms. At night I am a lot calmer.

my anxiety is usually worse right when i wake up (since i'm already thinking about the symptoms i'm expecting to feel throughout the day) and once the sun goes down. during the daytime i typically feel calmer but once i'm alone and have too much time on my hands to do lots of anxious thinking, all the symptoms are magnified. i think most of this is just a self-fulfilling prophecy since i wake up worrying about worrying, which then CAUSES worrying, which then causes symptoms, rinse and repeat every day. sometimes i wake up feeling pretty good, but the moment i start wondering if i'll feel sick that day, that's when the anxiety hits. it has to be connected.

I'm much calmer at night for some reason.  In the morning when I wake up I'll have a wonderful moment of peace and absolute calm and then it seems my worries fall on me with an audible "whump."  It's horrible, especially at times like this when I'm waiting for a call from my GP with blood test results and waiting for the scheduler at the hospital to call and set up a brain CT.  It's going to be a long week.  At nighttime, I can kind of hide away in a cozy dark room with my laptop and distract myself.  Everything seems a little more dire during the light of day.

My anxiety comes in waves during the work day.  I've never really had an attack at night.  I've gotten to the point of being able to predict what symptoms of my panic attacks will happen by the time of day.  It usually begins between 9:30 - Noon and ends between 1 - 2.  Somedays they dont happen but lately they've been pretty consistent.  Whats really upsetting is how it affects my work.  I really don't like having episodes around coworkers.

Mine is more so at night because when I am at work, I am so focused on my job, I really don't have time to worry about anything else. But once in a while, especially on the weekends, my Anxiety creeps in during the day as well.

Anxiety seems to rear its ugly head at any time for me.  I find that I have different kinds of anxiety, too.  If I'm going to a medical appt of any kind, I get anxious, but then there is another anxiety that I have which is worse.  It will just come on out of nowhere.  I usually feel it hit after I've had a stressful day.   It won't come on while I'm in whatever situation but once I'm home and relaxing it starts. 

Then there is the kind that hits me for no reason I can figure out.  For example, I just went to lunch with my husband and on the way to the place we were going, I felt a palpitation and from that moment until now, I have felt uptight and very anxious.  I have no idea why. 

Anxiety has a mind of its own with me.
