Thanks for writing to Healthcare magic

Fear without reason or out of proportion to situation is anxiety.

Anxiety symptoms can occur in many illnesses like anemia, arrythmias, hyperthyroidism, heart disease, asthma and other respiratory disorders, shock, phaeochromocytomas and several other psychiatric illness. Minor things like waking up to a sudden alarm clock or being hurried up to the morning tasks may be responsible for early morning anxiety (Completion of some of the tasks the previous night would be useful in such scenarios).

Anxiety and mood disorders can occur as co-morbidity.

Anxiety symptoms can occur during any part of the day.

Anxiety is even a part of post menopause symptoms.

Early morning awakening and depression can be part of a depressive disorder and anxiety as a symptom can even be present in depressive illness.

What exactly are your symptoms. Request you to explain your symptoms. What are the associated other complaints.
How long are you suffering from these symptoms.

It is better if you consult a psychiatrist and get your thyroid profile.

Non pharmacological methods like relaxation, meditation, listening to soothing music can be tried if the symptoms are not very severe.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
