Sunday mornings I have the most anxiety.  My only day to sleep in (I go to church on Wednesdays) and not have any "must do's".  So this should be my easiest day?
Someone mentioned - cortisol levels? - being the culprit?  I will look into that?

Healthy,

Write your taper plan using Ashton, implement it religiously. No need to worry any more. Meanwhile, google some sleep hygiene plans. Good luck

I must be strange....I guess everyone's  taper is different. I am terrified in the early morning. Then it gets better.  Then as night approaches, the panic sets in again. But I have no doubt this will get better and better over time. Maybe it does have to do with those pesky adrenalin and cortisol levels. I am going through a phase of extreme- several hours at a time - heart palps. I find that over time, for me, some sx flare up then fade, only to be replaced by another sx.

Sounds like recovery to me. Good luck as you finish your taper.

That is a wonderful way to see it!!! They are healing sx not taper sx. I don't want to become the 24 hour Kvetching Channel to my family....and even here too because BB has been so helpful. Thank you for the uplifting sentiment.  :thumbsup:

Hi All,

I have had morning anxiety for years. At its worst I wake up in complete distress and my racing mind will not let me stay in bed. I have seen many medical professionals and not one has said they have heard of this phenomenon. This is the first website where I have seen it openly discussed. Good to know I am not alone

I also get better as the day goes on and bed time I almost feel symptom free at times. What has helped me is doing what I don want to do and force myself to get up shower and dress and do something , anything, I feel much better than I would staying home and feeling sorry for myself.

Very similar for me. Becoming vertical and going out for a walk took it away completely most days.
