Does anyone wake up with heart racing as if you had a nightmare/ terror? It also feels like my entire nervous system is shot. I've been experiencing this every morning for 2 weeks now. Some mornings are worse than others. It's frightening because I wonder if I'm damaging my heart.
Waking up with heart racing : Does anyone... - Anxiety Support
Ive had this a few times. And I did talk to my doctor about it. And he eased my mind when he told me that your heart is not going to get hurt if it races once in awhile and what's best is to just try and calm yourself. It's not a heart condition it's anxiety. I would also recommend not getting to hot while sleeping. I notice it happens more when I'm hot. Keep fighting that fight and remember it won't kill you and it's not some kind of heart condition. Just anxiety making you feel like it is.
i have had all of the symptoms you have got over the years, waking up in the night sweating,heart racing, wondering what is going to happen next, just try and remain calm, easier said than done, but if you are worried perhaps a mild Beta Blocker would help you a great deal,see your GP Propranolol are excellent, i take 10mg when i get this rapid heart rate, been checked at hospital a few times and i am fine, so stay calm, it will pass, keep cool at night,and keep off caffine drinks,best wishes.
Still get racing heart beat from time to time, had a bad one yesterday but settled down after 10mg prop, still a worry but what can you do???? just get on with it, put it down to it will happen again, don't eat after 7,little snack but nothing heavy,no caffine drinks,keep cool in bed,don't wrap the blanket around you also limit your wine intake,try the above and best wishes xx
I read that your cortisol levels are lowest in the morning and it makes anxiety worse. I feel like this at least a little almost every morning. I use to let it freak me out and set the tone for my day but now I get up and eat something like a banana or toast and it helps. I wasn't able to drink my morning coffee for the longest time. I really hate it but I try to remember it's just my anxiety and nothing more. Good luck!!
I'm having the same thing only my chest and upper back is hurting. This is the first morning
