anxiety

Occasionally, I have this feeling that my thoughts are racing through my head at a millions miles an hour, and there's this roaring sound, like sticking my head out the window of a fast-moving car with ear plugs in. When this happens, I feel like I'm moving in slow motion, and seeing things from farther away.
ive been havin racing thoughts. and they been really bugging me. i would have them then a couple times a day, and usually when i was not active . but they started to get worse to the point i could not relax or enjoy doing the thing i usually enjoy doing it. and i would get depressed and i would loose touch of reality. and during the racing thoughts lots of pictures would pop in my head. and that really freaks me out.
I'm still having a hard time sleeping at night with increased night time anxiety and racing thoughts.

I am experiencing racing thoughts, discomfort with my heart beating, clammy, smoky taste in my mouth after sleeping, horrible Anxiety buzz (Which begins with the racing thoughts), sore temple, tightness in head. My question: Am I having side effects from Prozac or withdrawal from Vicodin. How much time should I give the Prozac to work, I've never taken an anti-depressant before, out of fear, but I do love to live life, I'm confused on what to do with these symptoms.
Yes that's true if a person has racing thoughts only during panic attacks that is anxiety disorder. A person with bipolar disorder has racing thoughts when they are manic. I don't know if the thoughts you describe are obsessive or if they are psychotic. They do sound a bit beyond anxiety disorder. It depends whether they are just disturbing thoughts or they seem real at the time or in general. It complex and depends on your level of reality testing in general.
Are racing thoughts the same as obsessive thoughts or intrusive thoughts? When I say Obessive thoughts I mean like thinking about the same stuff every day, day after day, it could be a person or a dream that you think of. I know obtrusive thoughts are thoughts you really don't want to think about, I have them on and off but what are racing thoughts?
In my own experance I only seem to have repetative thoughts during hypomania or possible mixed state. Otherwise I don't have them at all. But once my thoughts start racing I get stuck in loops. It is usually negetive things but sometimes not. Sometimes it is just random stuff like a song or an idea or something I saw on t.v. It drives me crazy. At these times I have super high anxiety. I hate it.
Anxiety is all about worrying. Racing thoughts are very common with anxiety. Anxiety is the root of many disorders and symptoms that can easily be mistaken for other more serious diseases. Just because you have racing thoughts doesnt mean you have BP or something like it.
She is having almost constant racing thoughts in her mind, can't focus on TV, reading etc, had to drop out college. She does have anxiety issues stemming from mitral valve prolapse syndrome, but my question is can the racing mind be attributed in large part to her suppressed TSH ( all other numbers Free T4 etc normal)???
If you're experiencing anxiety and/or panic, some of the most important tests you should have done are thyroid tests. Anxiety and panic attacks are common symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Other anxiety/panic symptoms that may indicate thyroid disease include palpitations, tremors, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, eye problems, muscle weakness, and weight issues.
In addition to the racing thoughts, extreme anxiety I am also severely depressed to the point I am not functioning well. Before the Latuda I was on Zyprexa which made me suicidal. My question is could the Latuda be contributing to the racing thoughts? It seems to be making me much more anxious. Also, is there any medication that seems to help?
Anyway, my question is are these symptoms more related to mood disorders than anxiety or is it the other way around? And could it mean I might have bipolar disorder? Hope I made the question clear.
here are just a few to mention: mine are : feeling of unreality like im in a constant dream and everything looks fake, sweating , tremors, fear of dying/doom, rare crying spells, nausea/gagging, trouble consitrating, racing heart, switching body temperatures.
I'm having a had time sleeping. Every time I lay down, my heart takes off racing. It will get up into the 130's! I've had issues with being more lightheaded this time around. Actually almost passed out when they did an u/s (accor to Dr I was laying on my a vagus nerve) I'm going to get into my Dr Monday and see if he'll order a thyroid/anemic test for me as I've heard that can cause rise in heartate. Thoughts? It is very annoying as I can't sleep!
I notice if I lay down too long and especially at night my heart starts racing. Almost like an anxiety attack but it is just my heart. Last night we went to bed early as we were all up early and really tired. Well I woke up at 11:45 soaked with sweat and my heart felt like I was jumping out of my chest. I know from past experience I have dreams based in what is happening around me or in me. So of course I was dreaming I was in a bank that was getting robbed.
Is this anxiety or am I losing my mind? How can you stop thinking about your thoughts? That's kind of impossible. I notice when I keep myself busy or play with my 8 month old son, I don't have these thoughts...but I can't ALWAYS keep myself busy. Help?

It all started when I had my first panic attack about 3 months ago, and this was followed with the physical symptoms of anxiety, the stomach pains, body pulsations etc. But now those have gotten better, but I still think about the anxiety constantly even though I have nothing to worry about. Some days I feel like I'm going crazy (even though I know I'm not) and yet my mind still has these scary, violent thoughts constantly passing it through it.
Stopping obsessive thoughts is difficult for anyone but it is more complicated with a person who has daily panic attacks and is bipolar. If you are in mania it is going to be difficult to stop them. It is difficult because you may swing the other way fast. If you do something or take a medicine that pulls down the mania it may cause some symptoms of depression and back and forth and so on. Try to meditate, do some grounding techniques and breathing techniques if you can.
I have been diagnosed with anxiety disorder, however I fail to present any other symptoms aside from the pounding, racing heart. I do not feel scared and do not feel anxious... EKG, echo, holter have all come up clean. I am constantly disturbed in the night by the sound of my own racing heart. I take ativan now and again, but that doesn't slow the palpitations. Does anyone have any thoughts on what this might be?
I'm just wondering if anyone can share some of their physical symptoms of anxiety? Such as constant headache, muscle aches, etc...I can read a book or google the symptoms, but i think it would be better to hear it from some of you here in our forum. Any help is better than no help. Thanks!
Both of them require different treatment and medication to combat symptoms. The treatment for anxiety always starts with a medical exam with your doctor to rule out heart or other physical trouble. Once that is ruled out, a visit with a mental health professional with anxiety experience is scheduled. Some doctors will want to throw medication at you- you need to decide what you want out of treatment at this point.
