Try some easy steps: Your description suggests that you are not getting adequate sleep at night. First, try and get 7-8 hours of sleep at night. Secondly, when you first wake up, try washing your face with a washcloth soaked in cold water.

About nystagmus: Nystagmus is a shaking of the eyes that can occur under a number of circumstances, some involving signals from the inner ear to the brain. If dizzy, the eyes can shake from side to side. Up-and-down shaking is very different, not from the ear, & must be evaluated by a physician. Side-to-side shaking all the time or dizziness not explained by sudden changes in position also deserve evaluation.
