anxiety

Avatar m tn You have nothing to lose. Please know I have suffered from panic attacks 40,000 feet in the air, generalized anxiety attacks where I felt I wanted to bite my tongue, nightmares and on and on. Anxiety is an old friend of mine, believe me. Not in order of importance, I will begin...only one tip at a time, please. 1. Within 90 seconds of awakening, drink 8 oz of water, I can't tell you how much dehydration mimics anxiety. 2. (I lied about only one).
Avatar f tn Are there any over the counter meds that I can take daily at home for anxiety attacks. I have at least two attacks every day, but I have no insurance to go to a doctor for a prescription med.
Avatar f tn It does sound like classic anxiety and panic attacks. What's funny about anxiety is that you really have no idea when it will strike and it is usually when you feel everything is fine. It sounds like you have had everything checked out thoroughly so have you thought about asking to speak to a therapist? I know it stinks being on meds, but if you need them now, it doesn't mean you will need them forever. My anxiety started after the birth of my 2nd daughter.
Avatar f tn He also prescribes 20 5mg valium a month for anxiety attacks. (Like when I'm having to grab the kids up in the middle of the night to rush them to the tornado shelter because one is heading straight for our location! Talk about a heart attack! Running out in the rain and lightning! Crazy!) Man, I have said a lot. I certainly didn't mean to ramble on. But you guys are super easy to talk to, and my husband really does not understand addiction. He just can't wrap his head around it.
280234 tn?1532989849 Weight gain will just add to my anxiety, so I definitely will not be taking this. I'll be looking for other anti anxiety remedies, but will not be taking Zoloft or celexa again...
651235 tn?1224885959 can you fight panic attacks and anxiety problems with mental power? (self-hypnosis, etc) Is medication necessary? or will the symptoms get worse over the months and years as you decide not to take any medication... Can you treat it with home remedies? special types of herbs and vitamins? im desperate guys, i need to get my life back...i miss it. :-/ please help...and maybe the information will help others too who are suffering the same as me...
1434731 tn?1382725984 I hate having anxiety! It freaks me out and makes me feel like at any given time I'm gonna have a heart attack or just die. I get that little fluttery feeling in my chest. I have a pressure in my middle chest between my boobs but it's not really my chest, it feels like my back and I want to crack it. I took my blood pressure cuz that helps me sometimes. 131/70 not bad! I don't know why I have it but it's annoying! It's been like a week of generally not feeling well.
933087 tn?1291177860 My problem is that I have been having panic attacks since I was about 13. At age 14 I was put on medication (Adderall XR 30's) for ADD. Even though the medication helped me greatly in school, the panic attacks became more frequent and more aggressive. Every day after school i would get home and start to feel my fingers tingle, my face go numb, get really dizzy, then have problems breathing. Id have to lay down and just try to fall asleep to get rid of all of it.
Avatar m tn Recently, i have been experiencing more frequent symptoms that i think are being brought on from stress, from what i can only pin point, to be Anxiety Attacks, or Over-stressed, causing these symptoms. They mostly occur while at work, usually around lunch.
2111850 tn?1334369185 / because my mum has suffered anxiety she understands and i feel safe here with her. Although i feel like a sook. Naturally i tried to avoid driving or leaving the house at all, which failed because the longer i sat home the worse and more freqent the attacks became. One day i decided bugger it i am going to have a panic attack whether i leave the house or not, so i went out. It was hard but had to be done.
203342 tn?1328740807 they can also teach you different things that may help you when your anxiety is at a higher level. i agree that the meds they have to treat anxiety attacks are rather sedating. thats why i don't like taking the xanax. makes me feel like a different person.
4341997 tn?1514592288 another thing i thought of for anxiety (I have a lot because i used to get panic attacks big time) is some acting exercises i used to do with actors (i used to direct.) you need to be able to lie down in a quiet room, so maybe won't work at work, but they're amazing to do at bedtime - you go through every muscle/area in your body from the top of your head down to your toes, one at a time, and think about relaxing it, all while breathing slowly.
Avatar f tn I just weaned my 22 month old about 6 weeks ago and I've been having anxiety/panic attacks/depression for about a week now. Has anyone experienced anything similar? When i weaned her down to once a day, I went through about 2-3 months of the same thing. My doctors did not relate it to breastfeeding though and were just quick to prescribe an anti-depressant which i didnt want to take because i was still nursing.
Avatar m tn Had I read online about how common anxiety attacks after a night of drinking are, maybe I could have started my road to recovery sooner, and maybe some of you can. Anyways, I am a 25-year old college student (receiving my 2nd BA tomorrow actually :D) who had never experienced anything related to anxiety or panic attacks ever in my life. I've always been a laid back, easy-going individual.
Avatar f tn The doctors said I had a migraine and sent me home. The anxiety and heart fluttering and pounding became a daily thing. I had bad symptoms all through my pregnancy, but all tests came up normal and I was told that I would feel better when I gave birth. So, about 2 weeks after giving birth, I ended up in the ER with a BP 250/114 and a low heart rate in the 50's. I was put on various medications and put on bed rest for 3 months. Not an easy thing to do with a newborn and a 4 year old.
Avatar n tn Since November last year she has been having severe panic/anxiety attacks. We are now home-schooling her as she feels so vunerable in the large school environment. Because of this she is very depressed at not being able to experience life as she used to. She also has a continuous headache that does not respond to normal painkillers. Is all of this 'normal' and do we have to accept these symptoms as being part of her illness?
Avatar n tn I did use Klonopin cuz I take it anyway for anxiety attacks, so I was able to sleep. A few weeks of Klonopin will NOT create and addiction. Just spoke to my Dr. yesterday about it. Body temp changes constantly because the opiate you've been taking attaches to receptors in your spine, stomach and brain where body temp is controlled, so I've read in medical book. That's why your digestive system is messed up too.
Avatar n tn Now i've had anxiety and panic attacks for a while and i can handle it pretty well, usually. When I feel like im going to get a bad attack I take a Zanax that my family doctor prescribed me. But for the last two days i've had these bad anxiety attacks when i'm asleep. It happens whithing the first two hours of sleep and I wake up scared and that feeling stays with me for a while. The anxiety is centered around me getting a fatal disease, if that makes any sense.
Avatar f tn And I'm back to being a huge pothead again lol. You'll be fine, maybe in the meantime try some herbal anxiety remedies or something to ease the symptoms? I take Tranquilene everyday for anxiety because I was not doing well on meds, and it works better for me and doesn't make me feel like a different person. worth looking into anyway ... http://www.tranquilene.com Good luck!
Avatar f tn I suffer from SEVERE panic attacks and anxiety episodes ranging from being angry and irritable to crying uncontrollably. Every time it feels like my heart is going to jump out of my chest, I can't breathe, I sweat uncontrollably, and my head races. I can't control it at all. It is starting to take a toll on my relationship.
170935 tn?1225374676 I was recently diagnosed with svt. I had been told most of my life that it was anxiety/panic attacks. It wasn't until recently I experienced an episode that left me completely disoriented. I was feeling very funny, don't remember much of that day, just snap shots. My boyfriend quickly rushed me to the hospital where they put me on a monitor and my heart rate was recorded at 217bpm.
Avatar n tn Going to bed at night used to be a very comforting and relaxing experience for me. Over the past year, however, night time is accompanied by bouts of panic and sleeplessness. The best way I can describe it is I just get near sleep (usually after about 30 minutes in bed) when out of the blue my whole body starts to tingle, my breathing and heart rate speeds up, and my thoughts start racing. It's like the feeling you would get if somebody came up behind you and scared you...
Avatar m tn I dont want to offend you but i think you need to hear this maybe it will open a few doors for you to explore. First of all i have dealt with panic attacks and anxiety before. I am happy to say that i am completely fine now. I do keep a xanax around just in case and that is almost a cure in itself! Other than that, you are on or have been on wayy to much medication! You mentioned going to the doctor wayyy to many times in your post. You are going into the doctor for congestion and an ear ache?
Avatar f tn I am having bad panic attacks today. I knew what to expect to an extent as far as physical symtoms and I knew I would have depression and anxiety. So I guess my question is after the 7 days or so of physical withdrawal symtoms will the panic attacks ease up?
Avatar f tn Sorry to disagree, but most people with anxiety attacks do worse with alcohol, as it produces more disorientation. And poppy seed tea, which poppy seeds are you talking about? California poppy is the only legal tea, and those aren't addictive at all, they're a relatively mild relaxant though they can produce drowsiness. Opium poppies are illegal, but the tea traditionally used is also not addictive and is also rather mild.
Avatar f tn You need to take medication to calm you down like xanax, klonopin, or ativan, or home remedies like relax as much as possible take hot bath listen to favorite music, b-vitamins calm your nervous system, so does lavender, or chammomille tea.
Avatar f tn Obviously you're suffering anxiety, but the unanswered question is why. Panic attacks come and go, but anxiety can be constant, but that doesn't mean you have an anxiety disorder. You could have any number of physiological problems, including thyroid or sexual hormone fluctuations related to your still recent pregnancy. Having a child causes all kinds of issues for people.
3246377 tn?1347523040 Hello all, I am 21 years old and have been suffering from anxiety/panic attacks ever since my pre-teens. And every time I get upset or angry I have a panic attack. Does anyone else experience this as well?
560272 tn?1311353893 I'll have to say they have helped my panic attacks and anxiety. I want to add a b-complex too. You never told me if Allergy by Heel, worked well? And yes, I have a huge issue with anxiety, have for 10 yrs now....the last few years have gotton worse. I've never been homebound like this. :( Thanks for taking the time to talk with me, I greatly appreciate it.
