Hi MLB,

I'd like to make a suggestion that helped me when I'd wake up with issues first thing in the morning.  I changed my routine a bit.  If you wake up feeling that way, the LAST thing you want to do is check your pulse because then you are giving that feeling attention....the more attention you give it, the more it will stick around.  When you have that feeling, just tell yourself to get out of bed, you have things to do!!!  Get up and do something you otherwise wouldn't do first thing in the morning, like take a brisk walk, have coffee or tea on the patio, anything other than check your pulse and think about that feeling you have inside.  Odds are what you are feeling is an anxiety feeling and the less attention you give it, the sooner it will go away!

Give it a try and see how it works!!   :happy0151:

It wakes me up out of a sleep during the night :(  I do believe it is anxiety related,
As I've been having slight sleep issues lately... Fun is ..

If that happens to me, there are certain yoga stretches that are good.

This happens to me. I've always had it, even as a kid. If I'm sleeping and I hear a noise outside that maybe startles me or gives me a fright, I wake up with my heart pounding and my legs shaking like mad, although they are not shaking to the touch. Weird!

How funny I just made a post about this the other day on the hypochondria page. I have been waking up tremoring and shaking lately, like my head is vibrating off my body. Have you been under a lot of stress lately? I know I Have. A TON> that's why I am asking. I went to, two neurologist this week and they really think it is anxiety related. I notice I tremble a lot during the day too. Like I have the shakes when reaching for something, changing my kids diapers, or just picking something up :-(

Yeah, I get this, especially if anxiety wakes me up too early. If its in the middle of the night I stay in my room and sit up in my bed or walk around my room. Like some has said it's good to get up to shake it off. For me it feels worse when I'm laying down. If it's morning I'll just get up, because knowing my anxiety, it won't let me go back to sleep.

I am not sure if you may be having what I had for a long time - Nocturnal Panic Attacks - I kept waking up trembling and also gasping for breath at times when it got really bad.  This was about 20 years ago, and they prescribed Diazepam - to treat what was known back then as "Night Terrors".  Thankfully, it put an end to this anxiety problem.

Also, Sleep Apnea may play a role, in the last 6 years, I started to have similar problems - waking up in a very nervous and shaky state, but it nothing close to the "Nocturnal Panic Attacks" of my youth, but it was still high anxiety and shaking - my doctor recommend that I get a sleep study done, and sure enough, I was diagnosed with Severe Sleep Apnea and followed the doctor's orders.

Since then, I had wonderful sleep and feel so much more rested...

Just a thought - if it continues to for over a month - I would definitely make an appointment with your doctor.

Hope you feel better  :winking0008:
