Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety attacks at night symptoms


Avatar n tn I am a slightly overweight 27 yr. old male. Often (at least once a week); I wake up 1-2 hours into my sleep at night with a sudden "attack". This "attack" is short in duration -- usually less than five minutes. The following is how the experience plays out: ----- Awaken to a sharp loss of breath and a cramping or single large spasm sensation throughout my chest area. My heart instantly starts racing and gets up to about 120 or so before settling down after a few minutes.

Avatar n tn If his anxiety first started at night, or usually occurse at night, then it will most likey always occur at night. That's how anxiety works. We become anxious or fearful of those anxiety symptoms, especially when we "know" when those symptoms are going to hit. It's a self-fulfulling prophecy.

This only happens at night ..I read about panic attacks and other things , I just can't tell if this is it. I went for a physical and I am waiting for the results. Can anyone in the mean time help me out ?
Avatar n tn I'm not a doctor, but I think you are suffering more from stress-related anxiety than actual night-time panic attacks. Actual night-time panic attacks are very traumatic. Sufferers wake up thinking they are dying -- having a heart attack, with physical symptoms like palpitations, cold sweats, etc. You should look into stress reduction techniques and be happy you don't suffer from the above.
Avatar m tn Symptoms if one gets do not come on that early, and overall symptoms are useless because they are generic and connected to many things. DUO test at 28 days followed by a antibody test at 3 months. USE CONDOMS.
Avatar f tn Does anyone experience panic/ anxiety attacks? Last night I woke from sleeping and very suddenly I felt intensely cold and shivering. The temperature in the house was normal. I grabbed a blanket and tried to warm up to no avail. My teeth were chattering and my extremeties cold and rigid. I had difficulty catching my breath inbetween shivers. The symptoms lasted 30 minutes before I got warm. I'm 20 weeks and just starting to show. My stomach felt cold and hard too.
159785 tn?1276229625 I always pictured menopause as dealing with hot flashes and other female symptoms --- NOT feeling like getting run over by a truck! I wake up over and over at night, not just with the hot flashes, but with an emotional as well as physical feeling that actually creeps up my body, like my skin is crawling, accompanied with a terrible panicky feeling. I paid attention to the feeling this morning, and figured out what it's like.
Avatar n tn 2.7 would put her in shock..i was 2.8 one time..was in icu..
Avatar m tn I am having trouble sleeping and am in constant fear of my next attack (this happens mostly at night when I am going to bed, and when I have free time to worry about things). These attacks are just something that I've never felt before, I know my usual panic attack symptoms, but ever since the move I've been getting new symptoms (like numbness, dizziness, dry mouth, confusion). Doctors rules out anything heart related.
Avatar n tn I was on sertraline for almost 2 months to help with anxiety and panic attacks. I was so heavily into the panic attacks I would go to the ER thinking I was having a heart attack. I still struggle with the anxiety and panic attacks on a daily/weekly basis as I had to stop taking the medication as I developed GERD from it.
Avatar f tn I am not a drinking and haven't don't drugs in years but when I came back to LA a friend of mine and I partied one night. 3 days later no sleep I had my first real anxiety attack and went to the emergency room. The doctor gave me and IV and lorazepam he told me to stay away from partying. I took his word for it and have been horrified of drinking or anything since then. Been completely sober.

Avatar f tn Yes, that can be symptoms of anxiety. I am 24 year old mother of two and has been suffering from anxiety for year now. The past 8 months have been the worst ever, I was on 1mg of zanax twice a day but, now I am on .50mg twice a day. I have been feeling some withdraw symptoms for the past week- it *****. It is life changing but, i keep reminding myself that people like us need to fight it and treat it because we have our children who need us most...we can do it some day that day will come.
Avatar n tn for me just knowing that everything i went through is due to anxiety is calming. i still get attacks...just had one this face and left arm went numb. however now that i know its anxiety and not a stroke....i can calm down much easier. i tend to drink a ton of water and do some breathing and say to myself over and over again "this is only anxiety, i will be fine". the symptoms then go away for me.

Avatar f tn Food poisoning and anxiety - ugh! That's a tough double-whammy. Anxiety can make us very vulnerable to looking at every physical twinge or symptom and jumping immediately to the worst possible conclusion. Have you talked to your doctor about your anxiety symptoms? There are a lot of great resources out there to help with anxiety. For some people, faith is a huge part of that. It's wonderful you have found that to be powerful for you. But don't be afraid to seek out more help.
Avatar n tn I never had anxiety attacks until I was at week 12/24. It was freaky, at first I had the feeling that something bad was going to happen, like impending doom!!! I made it thru the night and the next day I saw my doc and he confirmed that it was probably an anxiety attack. He gave me "Seriquil" and said if it happens again take this and you'll sleep. Along with that we went over some other ways to defeat the feeling: breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation techniques.
Avatar n tn Heart racing Gas Vertigo (short dizzy feeling) Stomach cramps Shaking Feeling confused Breathing problems Noticeable heart beats Feeling of lungs feeling with fluid Trouble swallowing (The list goes on.) All symptoms can happen all at once or one at a time. Anxiety is a disese, but it can be overcome. I promise! I used to suffer with anxiety, so I know the feeling.
689327 tn?1240232764 I have been on xanax for as long as I can remember, without I have the worse anxiety attacks on a daily basis, The anxiety is so bad I don't want to get out of bed socialize or leave the house, with the xanax I am able to live a normal life, I don't want to be by myself and have no life.
Avatar n tn Any imbalance in the thyroid hormones can cause symptoms of anxiety or panic to occur. I used to get anxious at the thought of just leaving the house. If I was going on a trip, I would get panic attacks that would send me into a corner. Medications made them better, but I wanted them to go away!!! My blood tests showed normal values, so I looked to my diet. The Thyroid "runs" on dietary iodine. Most dietary iodine is from eating fish or iodized salt.
