I woke up from a 45 min nap today. I felt really odd after almost confused but i wasnt confused. Felt really weird. I woke up suddenly but thats never normally effected me. This is the first time ive had this.
I still feel odd, but not as bad and i woke up 3 hours ago.

Anyone else get this?

I generally feel fine after a daytime nap. However on the odd occasion I have felt a bit dazed/not properly awake for a long time afterwards. Often this can coincide with me not being physically well. Are you maybe coming down with a cold/headache perhaps?

Well i have just started getting a headache and feel sicky. I dont feel ill thou. I just looked up on google naughty me lol and its actually really common. I just feel a bit odd like im not quite here. I do suffer anxiety and obviously things like this scare me.

P.s i always feel better after a nap too. This is the first time i feel weird.

try to distract yourself from getting anxious about it, probably just a one off and/or related to your headache. try and do something nice for yourself to relax. Is there a chocolate emoticon on here yet smile

Yes I get this after a daytime nap. V common for people with anxiety. Those without just think 'oh well I feel a bit weird, I've had a nap' and get on with things. We however analyse the feeling and end up feeling worse!

It's not so bad now but I used to wake up from naps with complete memory loss for a couple of minutes. It didn't last long, but I could never remember what day it was, or where the kids were, or if it was morning or afternoon. I used to have to keep myself calm until the confusion lifted.
