I have been having a problem as soon as the alarm goes off and I know I have to start the process of getting up my body starts shaking and trembling real bad. It's not as bad at 5 or 6 am when I wake up but still there. I take xanax, and a beta blocker at 6:00 am then have to usually get up at 8:40. I have to sit in bed for up to half hour or more before the shakes stop. This has been going on for a few years. I have tried doubling the xanax and beta blocker at doctors suggestion but it just makes me more tired and still shake. I am now just seeing a neuroloigist who has prescribed 100 mg of Neurontin. I had tried 300 mg and felt completely doped up till the next afternoon! I am really freaked out by this. Does anyone else have this problem? He did do some bloodwork too, for electrolytes, enzmes, sed rate, and I'm not sure what else on Friday. Also, my arms are suddenly getting painful and fatigued, used to be just legs! Can this happen after 10 years? I also have CFS, GAD and panic, anxiety, POTS. Thank you for ANY help!!! They keep saying it is anxiety. I can also take clonopin but it makes me depressed and more tired.
