Thank you for your question.This is most likely nothing serious or anything to worry about.It usually happens due to pressing of a nerve when you lie down and when you wake up the nerve compression is released causing your symptoms to improve.This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am credited here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.Therefore, I would appreciate a rating when you are done asking.Kindest regards
