"Why is in the morning when I wake up everything is a blur?"


could be a focus problem it last for awhile


I am not entirely sure what you mean by saying that "everything is a blur" in the mornings, but most people mean by this that they feel very fatigued or have trouble "waking up" or focusing in the mornings. Assuming this is also what you mean, then one possible approach would be to see your primary care doctor for advice, especially if the symptoms persist. Most of the time, these symptoms are a sign of excessive stress or insufficient sleep.

However, occasionally they may be signs of a different medical disorder, such as insomnia, depression, or trouble with the thyroid gland. The first thing that your doctor will want to do is perform a complete physical examination and also ask questions to get a sense of your normal sleep routine, exercise patterns, and stress levels. If these uncover simple solutions, such as setting a more regular sleep cycle, then your doctors can help you make these changes. On the other hand, if your doctor feels that there is something more complex going on, they may want to order some additional testing, including some basic bloodwork, to help get to the bottom of the issue. Make an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can!
