Morning anxiety?

When I wake up in the morning, I feel quite anxious and I physically tremble. I suffer with anxiety disorder and OCD but this has begin to happen recently (just got out of a pregnancy scare).

Could it be that? Because I feel somewhat okay during the day and really good at night.
Or could it be something else?

Either way, I want to get rid of it because it's leaving me unable to eat in the mornings because the thought, smell or taste of food makes me want to throw up.
Thank you and I hope I get a reply soon ☺️

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
In order to treat to symptom you need to know the cause. There are infinite possible causes for anxiety. I cannot analyze the cause of your anxiety without knowing more about you. This is why I strong suggest that you consider talking with someone who knows you well and can help you identify the cause.
If there does seem to be any psychological cause, it could be physical such as a chemical imbalance in the brain.
So, understanding the cause may take time, but that is necessary in order to know how to treat to issue. Maybe therapy is necessary or perhaps medication.

Thank you for replying.

I agree that it could be anything (college and/or home life i suspect) but as you know, i've just had a recent yet completely unnecessary pregnancy scare and i feel like it's that but its probably something more.
I also looked through the affects of Accutane (Roaccutane) which i was on for nearly 12 months (60mg a day) for severe cystic acne and what appeared was anxiety and depression, could this relate or not?

Again, thank you for your reply, i've already looked into therapy/counselling which i am going to try through my local GP when i get an appointment.
