Morning anxiety

Does anyone else ever wake up with anxiety for no apparent reason? I do suffer from anxiety, and sometimes I'll wake up in the middle of the night panicking when it's quiet and dark and I don't know why. I didn't have a dream, and I can't pinpoint my fear, I just...panic. This morning it happened when I woke up and it was light out but it took a while to shake off. I sat there and tried to pinpoint what I was anxious about but I couldn't. It was almost as if it were 100% physical because nothing specific was on my mind, but my heart was racing, I felt numb, I felt nausous, and I wanted to cry, but I didn't know why!! Has this ever happened to anyone?
