Anxiety attacks vs panic attacks

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety attacks vs panic attacks


Avatar n tn I have thought about why, and it ultimately comes down to the thought that if something was to happen to me - if I was to go unconscious (or basically lose control of the situation - yes I know typical) no one would be there to help me. I believe that if I can resolve this problem my anxiety and panic attacks will go away. Just point me in the right direction.
Avatar f tn I do very well with Celexa, but if I want complete relief from panic/anxiety attacks, I have to take a low dose of Klonopin 2 times per day. I take less Klonopin now than I did two years ago. I wish I were one of the people who could just take an SSRI, but I'm not. This is only my experience. When comparing Xanax to Klonopin, I think it is a proven fact that Klonopin is the better drug for long-term use. I don't believe that that is just an opinion.

280234 tn?1532986249 Just recently I have developed panic attacks, so to speak. Whenever I get a little nervous about a situation, the nervousness can develop in to a panic attack. The last two times I've went to the doctor I started to get nervous (white coat syndrome) & my BP and heart rate skyrocketed. My BP was 153/112, pulse was 126.

431073 tn?1222177026 I only started having panic attacks and anxiety about two weeks ago. I know a little bit about the disorder because my sister has it and I am a nursing student. My attacks differ from my sisters. Hers seem to be more severe, her attacks mimc a stroke. Here is what happens to me, my vision has changed and it doesn't go back to normal, I get a burning sensation in my head and neck, I tingle in my hands, feet, and lips. My heart races and I feel faint. I also breath heavy and get dry mouth.

Avatar f tn I am 16 years old and the past year my depression & anxiety have gotten out of hand. I self harm. I've begged my parents for help, but they won't. I also don't have any friends to turn to at all.. I'm just not really sure what to do anymore. it's gotten to the point where I'm questioning the value of my own life. the past week I've had constant anxiety/panic attacks that make me feel shaky and nauseous.
Avatar m tn I know from experience the anxious state can last for months and panic attacks can happen daily. I went through a horrible period of anxiety and panic. I have since been treated with meds and therapy and I am much better! Hopefully, you feel better soon!

I find sometimes if im in a car with people all of a sudden i get kind of dizzy and my heart beats a little slow then all of a sudden BOOM a huge thump beat, my throat gets tight, then my heart races and i NEED to get out of the car, i feel trapped. ive once actually called 911 cuz my mom wouldnt pull over because we were on the highway and i was having such a bad panic attack my hands went numb.
Avatar f tn I get such terrible panic attacks, i'm close to 33 weeks and this has been throughout my whole pregnancy. Before pregnancy I took medication to help with anxiety and depression, and I try to breathe or drink water to calm down (since I can't smoke anymore) and it doesn't help. It gets to the point where it's uncontrollable. I struggle with bipolar, and i'm so worried about my daughters health when she's born that it gives me more anxiety.

Avatar f tn Headaches, anxiety, panic, breathing problems, stress problems, depression, etc. can be caused by a magnesium deficiency. Stress, such as unemployment, can deplete magnesium and magnesium, as well at the B Complex Vitamins, are essential to handling stress calmly and smoothly. Some of the safer and more effective forms of magnesium include: Taurate, Glycinate, and Citrate (can be laxitative -- take with food).
Avatar f tn I agree with the previous comments - it really sounds like very classic generalized anxiety with panic attacks. Panic attacks can absolutely wake you up from sleep, and they feel just like you've described. They will NOT kill you. And, in fact, many people find that therapy can help them learn to calm themselves back down when they start to occur. Sounds like you got yourself off to a good start by finding the book on panic.
Avatar f tn Anyone suffering from panic attacks? They are horrible everything I use to care about I don't anymore...they have me low dose ativan but don't like taking it...
Avatar n tn Have you had anxiety issues in the past? Are you under a lot of stress right now. For me, when I was going through this, I would wake up in a cold sweat after having really bad dreams....nightmares can be quite common when we are under stress in my opinion.
Avatar n tn For the past week or so, I have been getting up in the middle of the night with panic attacks. Not the feeling like I am going to die attacks. Mine are like Crysda, in waves of fear from my stomach through the rest of my body. During these events, I feel like I want to run somewhere and hide but I dont know what I am running from or where to run. It is the oddest feeling I ever experienced. What follows is even more worse than the attack. the feeling of unreality or derealization.
Avatar f tn are there any anti depressants to help with panic attacks? I am experiencing panic attacks, I have recently started my degree, since my completion of my diploma level in 2012, I feel the 4years break I took from school is too much and I have forgotten most of the stuff and I fear I will not make it, and now im just having these panic attacks. I want to go and see a Doctor but im not sure if il be helped.
Avatar n tn You need to seek professional help with your anxiety either with therapy and/or medication. Medication will stop the panic attacks and to me that makes it worth it's weight in gold! You have choices and don't have to continue living like this. Seek help so you can get your life back!
