Woke an hour ago with panic attack after a nap. Tension in shoulders, neck, arms. So scared. Anxiety not new to me, but this waking terrified is.

Could have been an anxious dream maybe? That sometimes happens to me.

Not that I remember. The past month or so I often wake up tense, especially after a nap. I have anxiety disorder that has flared back up the past 6 wks

I wake up at about 430 every morning extremely anxious. It is horrible. I do notice when I try to take a nap, I get scared every time I start to dose off.

Sorry you go thru this too. I don't usually let myself nap, but was so tired today. It's now 2 1/2 hrs later and I'm still groggy and anxious

I was like that Wednesday. Nothing made it better. I took Atavan and it did nothing.

Just took another 1/2 dose of Xanax. Hoping it relaxes me soon. So frustrating. Hate that anyone has to go through this illness

Doing breathing exercises when you have a panic attack after sleeping or napping may help.

I hope you are feeling better. At this time I am having anxiety attacks as soon as I get into bed and lay there for hours, unable to stop my thoughts and fears. I am afraid when I am alone. I go to bed hours before my husband.
