Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety attacks in kids


Avatar f tn but the clonidine would help either way... if you truly think you are having anxiety or panic attacks you may need something else, but beware, a lot of them are addictive. i know there are some anti-depressants that are used for anxiety, and a med called buspar, also non-addictive. but DONT ignore it...
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 n tn Additionally, I believe in the law of attraction, you will attract the negative in your life if that's what you focus on. Try to avoid reading and listening to the bad things in the news it will only make you stress more. I avoid it at all cost. Good luck to you.
746230 tn?1232925447 In the last 15 years, I've had 2 anxiety attacks. When I know I'm going to be in what I feel is a stressful situation that might cause an anxiety attack, I will take an Ativan or, many times, I just pray or talk myself OUT OF having an anxiety attack. Identify it, work through it and don't let it control your life. You are the one in control always.
Avatar f tn The last month has been horrible and there has been nothing new going on in my life. Has anyone experienced attacks several days in a row? The only thing I can manage to do is lay in bed and watch TV. Even eating upsets my chest and head. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Avatar f tn It's a time of great change hormonally and can be a very difficult time for lots of kids because of that. Spasmophilia does seem to go along with anxiety, but it can also go along with a lack of certain nutrients, such as magnesium and potassium, which are electrolytes. This can also cause headaches and blacking out.
Avatar n tn Maybe , I don't have Anxiety but a actual problem and this is making me Anxious and causing my Panic Attacks cause its impossible to sleep at night! Thanks for reading and giving you input, Ill be watching this frequently and re-posting on anything new that happens!
Avatar f tn But I do get panicky attacks and bad anxiety. What should I do? It was worse in the beginning, but comes and goes now and it's terrible.
Avatar f tn Hello My name is Sabeli And i was diagnosed with anxiety attacks.
Avatar m tn That's coming from a dad with four kids. It does seem like you're struggling with anxiety, panic, and just plain nervousness. When you are having trouble breathing right, try taking slow, deep breaths, and exhaling slowly. Your belly should move in and out when doing so. There are lots of YouTube videos on how to calm yourself through proper breathing. Also, when you have a panic attack, like in the middle of the night, tell yourself "This is just anxiety, so I'm fine.
Avatar f tn I know what to expect, I know what will happen, but still have bad anxiety. I think, how will i handle 3 kids, how will he fit in, I'm scared to death all over again! I have a 6 yr old and a 4yr old. Just the thought is sending me into panic attacks. I'm pretty sure it's the hormones, I always have anxiety a few days after giving birth, then it goes away. The best thing I know to do is to keep busy and stay busy doing positive things.
Avatar n tn i go to the doctors on a monthly basis they say i am fine last year i had stress test, event monitor, echo. in december i had ekg done and blood work . then again last week had blood work done they say all is good. nobody in my family has any history of heart desease. but unfortunately on dec 31 my granma who wwas almost 78 past away from massive heart attack, tahat added to my fear and now i am having panick attacks every day sometimes a couple of times a ady a feel exausted.
Avatar f tn All of my other numbers are normal. The problem is anxiety and panic attacks. I'm having trouble telling where the thyroiditis and the panic attacks begin. My endo told me that any symptom I'm experiencing is definately not from my thyroid, so my gp have me Ativan. I've been taking them way too much, so he's promised me a perscription of Paxil. Does anyone else have this problem?
Avatar f tn Read my story on here savygaby. I think your best bet is to get on some this point in your life and with kids and 2 jobs stressing you out, you need meds to calm you down and prevent any panic attacks so you can go on about your life. I would recommend a beta-blocker combined with a benzo. The type of beta-blocker is specific on the types of symptoms you get. You can try and SSRI antidepressant, but it is not for everyone, yet a benzo. would provide immediate relief.

Avatar f tn Told my doctor and I went back to 10mg cipralex and small amount of Wellbutrin Well, my husband agreed with me that I should try to go off the meds I did wean myself off but way to abruptly -I had stopped all medication within a month Since June 15th I have not had a pill I am now experiencing very bad nocturnal panic attacks and anxiety early in morning sometimes throughout the day I have been taking vitamin B, Omega 3, Magnesium and some Holy Basil to try and help my symptoms.

1694901 tn?1317009564 I feel your pain…I never suffered from anxiety or panic attacks till over a year ago when my mom passed away…I was on lexapro and xanax for about 8 months then my Dr. slowly took me off of them…I was good for a while and BAM out of the blue they came back even stronger…for the past two months it’s been an emotional rollercoaster for me…part of me wants to take the meds but the other part of me feels I need to take control over this! My Dr.
1539037 tn?1294322228 I slowly started to feel alot better, the attacks became less and less. I had a surgery in March and in October of last year and that made my anxiety get bad afterwards. But eventually I would feel better once I could get back to exercising etc. I started a job and was working with my husband and oldest daughter(summer time) I was doing awesome. No attacks!!!! Then this Christmas a few weeks before my husband and I both got laid off.
Avatar f tn There are books written for kids on this if you are interested in some titles. Not just back to school anxiety but general anxiety kids may have. The jumping to noises is a classic sign of anxiety. That he is afraid to be alone, clingy, and not wanting to do his usual things all sound like a bit of mental health struggle going on since it is new. One other question.
Avatar f tn Well I got married again right after my Honeymoon I went off it cold turkey and I am a medical assistant / licensed phlebotomist well I guess I wasn't suppose to go right off it but I did I was trying to get pregnant and I didn't want anything in my body but vitamins well my anxiety went completely away after my two children were born and I get back to my normal weight I started jogging everyday and doing Pilates well I never got it when I exercised now that I don't do it every day I was gettin
Avatar n tn Before my panick attack I drank one cup of coffee suring the weekdays which is pretty normal but it does not help people who suffer from anxiety. Caffeine worsens anxiety!!! I also eat food less in sugar, which if your not familiar with, sugar can be stored as energy quicker. Think about the way children react to high sugar diets. In adults it affects our bodies more on a physiological level. It is less noticeable but sugar can cause hyper activity.
1979360 tn?1328147465 are there any techniques that you all use to calm yourself down during one of these? these attacks have caused me to not want to drive in traffic, for fear that i will have one and be stuck in between so many cars without a way to get out and get back home, to my safe place. and even though at home i am alone a lot because of my husband's job in the military - it has become my "safe haven" that i need to be in at all times. this has also effected my career.
Avatar m tn I have a problem with the whole anxiety in general. I already know that it is a chemical imbalance. What i would like to know from a professional is what causes that chemical imbalance? I haven't been able to get that answer from anyone, so i started making assumption of my own and it has worked out pretty good for me. It is what we consume. once i started eating healthy and i don't mean following the latest advise from a magazine.
Avatar n tn Hi, I think you are right - in most people with severe anxiety disorders there IS an underlying condition. From what I have learned through research it is a chemical imbalance in the brain that causes hair-trigger anxiety reflexes, so to speak. I have severe anxiety, have had panic attacks since the age of 12 - so do many, many members of my family. Even some folks who have never had a heart palpitation in my family have severe anxiety.
Avatar n tn I used to have panic attacks in places like supermarkets and movies theaters, and it was basically why I didn't go to lectures for two years of university. I would also avoid situations where I knew I would not have complete control of my environment - at teacher's college once when I knew I was due to present to the class I said I was going to the bathroom and didn't come back! Something that helped for a while was getting really good at a relaxation technique and self talk.
