I don't know what is wrong with me? Its been happening to me alot when I take a nap ( an hour or so) I will wake up calm but anxious,worried about, nothing in particular like my mind is racing. I feel really sad and sometimes start to cry and I have no clue why? I have tried not to nap but I'm on a Methadone program and I have found myself taking naps more frequently than before I was on the Methadone. Could it be the Methadone making me feel like this?

I registered just to ask for an update from kayare about her situation. I hope things have been resolved or at least gotten better.

I have the exact same problem~!! I thought I was the only one. I am thinking it is a combination of things based on what I have read. It has not always happened- what is different now is that I have had several life changes at once and it has been a very rough year! Definitely a connection I believe of the subconscious "scanning" the brain for problems upon waking like a computer- also I have read it could be due to sugar levels-I eat the best at night- (perhaps that is why I feel the best at night)..so perhaps sugar like juice in the morning would help. I am still experimenting- I do have bi-polar disorder but again despite this I have not always had this problem and at this point I believe the unhappiness with my life situation currently is the main cause so must make changes! So good to know I am not the only one!!!!!

I think I know what you're talking about, OP. Disoriented, panicked, anxious... do you suffer from anxiety? I've also found i have more vivid or disturbing dreams during the day. Could be something to do with the sleep chemicals your body releases and your response to that.

I also experience this. I take naps frequently as I have bad sleep problems. But when I take nap, I will always have nightmares. Every single nap! More frequently than not, they are about me dying. When I wake, I feel horrible. Disoriented, usually have a throbbing headache, feel very anxious and moody. I'm not taking any meds whatsoever. However, after about 30 minutes I come around and generally feel better then I did before the nap.

I get this feeling too sometimes. If I take a nap during the day at home sometimes I'll wake up with a feeling of disconnect from my surroundings. Almost like amnesia. Like I have no emotional attachments to anyone or anything around me or even myself. If I nap at work during lunch( power naps of 10 or 20 minutes) I'm constantly waking up every 5 minutes or so. I've got a good internal alarm clock so I set myself to wake up at a certain time. Its annoying when I wake up with sort of an adrenaline rush, heart pounding, disorientation. Other times I'll wake up and feel relaxed.

I almost never take naps unless I'm sick or I'm suffering a bad migraine whereas a nap could be helpful. In my case, meaningless naps would make me feel even worse. I'd feel more drowsy than I was before my nap. I would never regain my strength back at 100% and feel more tired the rest of my day. I guess that it's not for me. Some days I'm so sleepy but I don't take naps because I know it would not help me. I'd find ways to keep myself awake. I've managed to do so.

This is the sort of thing that happens to me. I don't sleep well at night, so therefore I take naps. Usually, the nightmares are at night. If not, they present themselves during the nap.

I had a very disturbing nap dream today.

Oh, you guys are awesome. I've felt like absolute butt after taking these long naps recently. When I wake up, I feel like I've ruined my day.

REM cycles last about 20 minutes and interrupting them can make you feel disoriented and crappy. If you wake up in the middle of a dream, chances are that's what happened. (I am only an amateur with this information, don't quote me!)

What works for me (so far) is understanding that your body will come around if you just give it time. (You will start to feel normal again.) I like to listen to music and get dressed calmly and I try not to make any major decisions until I'm back to normal.

I believe it is normal to feel this, but maybe most do not pay any attention to this thought when they might have missed part of the day. When I was growing up in my childhood I would sometimes take a nap during the day. Sometimes it would be a long nap that I did not want because I did not want to miss the day. A sad and empty feeling would strike me because I am a type that lives on the go instead of ignoring the day. In any case it just sounds like a natural emotional reaction when the body shuts down to recharge and nothing more than that. I can clearly say I know myself especially my own emotions to some degree to say OK I know what triggered some uneasy or unknown emotions. Just part of being human. Relax and think to yourself before thinking it is bad. We all love life to not skip or drain time because we are on barrowed time that is clicking away. Again it does not have to looked at as a negative statement. As we become older these thoughts and emotions become more familiar.
