I'm wondering if any one have ever got a panik or anxiety attack when getting a nap at the day time? I'm getting anxiety direct after a day sleeping, but never getting that at night sleeping. Any ideas to get rid of this horrible thing because I'm used to take a nap every day.

You can have a panic attack any time and anywhere. The key is to not let it throw you off. Accept the attack, float through it. Once you become unafraid of them, they will subside.

i usually only experienced that when I fell asleep worried about something or directly after a panic attack (sleeping was a way of coping for me, I'd get so worked up I'd just fall asleep). But yeah, I'd agree with the statement that panic attacks can happen anytime during whatever.

i think anything that messes with your body chemistry and routine can be a trigger for an attack- are you used to sleeping during the day?

All the best,

opposite for me. sleeping well and more specifically taking a good long nap reduces my anxiety a lot. without a nap i cant function normally and anxiety kicks in overdrive.

June 24th 2009: elective colectomy/ileostomy at Barnes/Washington University.

i have had the problem with panic after a nap also. usually after i have been having the attacks recently. or took a nap because i had to take a ativan for panic attach then panic is worse when i wake. the first panic attach i had in years and has started this all over for me was 4 weeks agao after i woke from a nap. hard to understand as it seems i must have been relaxed as i was a sleep.
