What causes me to wake up feeling muscular pain all over my body?

Hi! I really hope someone has had a similar condition and can help me. For about a year now, I wake up every morning with intense body pain and very low energy, as if my body had been tensed up all night long. I can sleep a solid 8, 9, 10 hours and still feel the same. I used to suffer from insomnia but not anymore. I can now fall asleep within minutes of reading. The muscle pain is similar to what you get when you have a flu. The situation does not improve during the day. [more inside]

Get me out of bed

What are your tips for getting out of bed in the morning? I'd like to hear your advise on going from first waking up to 'up and functioning' as speedily as possible. I'm always groggy (and if I'm honest, cranky) first thing, but OK after the first 10-15 minutes. So my main problem as I see it is that initial movement to the vertical (no pun intended). What methods have you used to get you staggering to the shower? I can't be too noisy, as my partner is legitimately sleeping in beside me, so I'm really interested in what you tell yourself or motivational thoughts that get you moving. [more inside]

I want to maximize sleep and minimize wasted time in the morning.

Due to some changes in my life, I need to start getting up earlier in the morning. Problem is, I am a lazybones and I LOVE to sleep. In fact, I normally WAKE UP and start the day at 8 AM, and soon I will need to report to work at that time. I need to go to work looking very polished and feeling great. This means I need to start showering in the morning and eating breakfast before I go into work. This is going to mean a change in the way I deal with mornings. Please help me make this change as painless as possible. [more inside]

How to Get More Light?

I recently moved into a new apartment on short notice. One thing I didn't realize when kicking the tires was that there is no natural light in my bedroom during the morning. This tends to make waking up an unpleasant and lengthy event—it's dark, and often I just fall asleep again. I don't want this to happen, and I've noticed that when I sleep in a room with good morning light exposure I wake up earlier and happier. So: how can I replicate a rising sun in my room? Full spectrum light (like for SAD) hooked up to a dimmer hooked up to a timer? Clever arrangements of mirrors?

How do healthy people feel in the morning?

I’m not sure what I should be expecting anymore. How I feel, energy-wise, especially in the morning, varies quite a bit depending on... well, so many factors I can't keep track of them all. I want to know what I should be aiming for as I work with my doctors (or, perhaps, hoping for at some indefinite point in the future if I can't influence it now). [more inside]

More jetlag, please?

Normally, waking up is a struggle for me, involving many uses of the snooze button. I was in Europe for almost two weeks in late May, and while I was there, I found that I was waking up rather early every morning, before my alarm clock, and felt incredibly refreshed and ready to go. [more inside]

Waking up: alarm clock advice for the undisciplined.

Two-part question about waking up: I'm looking for something that functions like the iPod alarm clock (but without having to own an iPod) or better yet, this "peaceful progression wake-up clock." The catch is I'm kind of a cheapskate, and have no idea whether an expensive alarm clock will really help me wake up earlier & more easily. (Secondly, any good advice on how to drag myself out of bed in the morning is more than welcome, too!) [more inside]
