I frequently experienced similar incidents back when I was around 15 -16 years old. I remember I told my mom that I had a feeling of everything around me being unreal and that I could not explain it in a better way. As you say, it comes after waking up from sleep...and almost always if I fell asleep after school and woke up later in the evening.
It is very unpleasant and at times I could almost see the world around me in pixel like state. Inside my head questions were raging...why am I living now...what is going on. Later on I have been thinking that it could have something to do with that the activity and amount of certain neurotransmitters in the brain are low right after one wakes up. For instance, depression tends to be worse in the morning and get better during the day. I really do not know, but I guess it could be a plausible explanation...
