    Since last couple of days i have been waking up scared in the mornings. I don't understand why though. I can't remember any dreams either. Throughout the day then my hands are clumsy and numb a bit. What is this? Has it got anything to do with my subconscious mind? fear of unknown?

      If your otherwise physically fit dude & you feel nervous or scared etc when you first wake up, try to distract those thoughts of fear using mindful distraction using your senses..So the next time it happens "don't" try to work out why it happens just except them for what they are (which are feelings your manifesting yourself), & distract them every time by being mindful of your senses..Now you have to try to do that every time you give yourself negative thoughts/emotions or feelings..Also learn how to meditate using only your senses which will take a few months, & learn about emotions & feelings control practice/training..You sound like a guy with things on his mind which means your a guy that cares, & so with mindful practice which can be done anywhere & at any time, you will learn/realise that you can stop any & every negative emotion/feeling or negative thought at will, when ever you need to you just need a lot of practice until you realise that yourself..A quick tip for the next time you wake up feeling like that is to try to listen intently to the silence or noises around you or get out of bed & try juggling 3 apples or oranges etc..Whilst your intently listening, feeling, smelling, hearing, or seeing, it's not possible to think at the same time..Start slow & build up because it takes a good few months to master, but if you keep going learning realising it will change every part of your life for the better....ps. Sort any problems out in your life that you can over the months, & have as much fun as you can find....Also do what Bruce Lee himself said, stay "ready for anything"..So stay fit & eat healthy food, & always be positive with everyone you meet. :-)

        Sounds like you have tried all these things. I guess they work, based on your experience! ... right?

    For mental issues, always check the hardware first before considering the software.

    Nutrition for instance. Did you know that a symptom of vitamin B-1 deficiency is the occurrence of unfounded/unwarranted feelings of fear?

    And are you getting sufficient amounts of the other vitamins and minerals?

    Take care. smile

      Interesting about B-1. I will look into that. The idea of check the hardware first is very good sense too. Thanks. I am glad I saw this. Thanks for contributing this post Ashish.

    If your hands are numb, you might want to check your upper spine and neck area. If an x ray shows nothing, try an MRI. Numb hands are not a good sign. Fear in the morning could be a central nervous system issue… Not enough energy flowing into the brain / medulla area. I would go to a neurologist. I don't mean to scare you.. Chiropractics can help this situation, but don't go to a chiropractor without an MRI image of your neck. You could have a degenerated disk. Have you ever been in a rear end collision or fall resulting in head or neck trauma?
    My advice is to start with a spine doctor.

      well i have Epilepsy to be honest. Since many years I have it. I have been taking medicine regularly too. Fortunately yesterday it didn't happen again and I think I am a bit relaxed today too...So, yes..it was more related to some tension maybe..thanks for your suggestion though.. smile

    It could very easily be low blood sugar. It can cause such things as it drops out. Eating a snack before bedtime, and small ones though out the day may help. Center snacks around protein. It doesnt cause a spike like sugar, and carbs do. Some good sources Include nuts, seeds, and butters. When sugar bottoms out it can make you shacky. I hope it helps

    I didnt realize u had epilepsy. It could be a side effect. Best to discuss with a pharmacist or doctor. As this may be the case. I wish you well.
