604274 tn?1220004475 higher blood pressure for one and high BP for a long period of time can damage internal organs. So don't let anyone tell you it's all in your head. Anxiety, stress, fatigue can result in very real physical aches and pains. Are you taking the meds you need now? There are classes available for stress management. One thing I learned when my kids were teens is I can't live their lives for them. I would give direction, lay down some boundaries but they had to carry the burden of their own mistakes.

Avatar n tn I've pulled many all-nighters in college and sometimes in my career have all-night work sessions (aka burning the midnight oil) and know I feel terrible for 2 days after that-- like a zombie. I don't know how you can even continue in your state. If you don't kill yourself if you don't change, you will end up killing someone else like falling asleep behind the wheel or driving past a red light or something.
Avatar m tn Oh yes it can. Your mind is a wounderful thing it can make or break you. You can have a heart attack or get really ill. Stress messes with your immune system as well!!! leaving you open to thing you can do is talk to your doctor ask him to perscribe diazepam tab 5 mg. Im not a pill popper by any means but when I feel the way you are feeling i take half a pill and im fine I only use it when I need it and I can say it works really well.
Avatar m tn I have anxiety and paranoid about health issues especially relating to the heart. Can you accidentally get hit in the neck or somehow accidentally stimulate the vagus nerve and kill yourself? Or slow your heart rate and lower blood preassure and kill yourself if you just so happen to massage your neck because it feels good?
Avatar m tn trigger it or stimulate it on accident without going out of your way to rub it can it kill you? Like what if you have an itch on your neck right on the nerve and you rub it for a few seconds? Is it actually easy to danger yourself from this maneuver? Iv had a cardiology workup with tons of tests and apparently everything's fine.
1131756 tn?1260245912 my husband had this done - not covered by ins - about $100 for him. As for your original question, yes pvc's can kill you - but there's like a <1% chance a heart arrhythmia is malignant; 99% are benign. PVC's palpatations etc almost all people experience them at one time or another in their lives, try to keep track of when, what you were doing and what you had to eat or drink and see if there's any triggers causing them. Caffeine, stress, alcohol, drugs, foods, anxiety....
Avatar f tn Missy, My anxiety is worse in the morning too. I've read that low blood sugar can make this worse. Try eating a high protein snack before bed, have some fruit and nuts right away when waking up, and a low glycemic diet all day. Now if I can just practice what I I know that this helps and I'm working it into my life style change.
Avatar m tn No, it won't kill you, but if you continue to think like this it can become a chronic way of living. Might be time to see a psychologist who specializes in treating anxiety disorders.
Avatar f tn You need to touch base with him/her anyway, as you're getting to a crisis point. It goes without saying that if you feel you may harm yourself, you need to seek help immediately. Update us after you talk to your doc, hang in there!
468452 tn?1225968488 So...goodeys had a good day??? Couldn't resist. Sorry.LOL How awesomely wonderful. Congrats, congrats, congrats. Freeing isn't it? The old "I think I can, I think I can" just turned into "I know I can! I know I can!". You have got to be on cloud 9! So happy for you. Keep it going and good luck!
Avatar m tn Drug interactions with alcohol can certainly kill you, or your liver, of course, if you take prescriptions, and many anti-anxiety medications stop working when you consume alcohol, which, combined with the depressive nature of alcohol, can really mess with your body and your anxiety. I don't take meds for my anxiety, and when I start to metabolize the alcohol a few hours after drinking, I tend to get irritable and anxious.
1696489 tn?1370825574 A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up.
Avatar n tn Trouble is we don't always know what causes anxiety. If you have not had it before, I would discuss the medication you have been prescribed with the doctor who prescribed them.
Avatar f tn If acute as an adult you have a super high chance to clear and if chronic you have had much longer than you think. Most with HBV live long healthy full lives but you do need regular bloodwork and ultrasound (and if you have access to Fibroscan much better than ultrasound) every 6 months to make sure.
Avatar n tn It's a very, very hard thought to overcome, but if you have been checked by your doctor and have been diagnosed with anxiety, then you can start to try and accept that these thoughts are just one of the many crazy symptoms we can get. I know how hard it is, how horrible going through anxiety can be. Hang in there, things will get better if you do whatever you can to help yourself. Good luck and take care..
Avatar n tn I dont know why you are taking them, if it is for legitimate reasons, a DR. should help you out. Ive read other peoples posts on Benzos, so you should get more responses. There are people out there who take them as I do for a reason, and as I said it has no buzz effect on me, and I never have to increase, It was my decision to quit the xanax which is propably the most powerful benzo along with Klonopin, and go to something milder and at a lower dose for my disorder.
Avatar f tn I suffer from anxiety have for years now. If you have questions about anxiety I probally have an answer or know where to find it just drop me a note. I also suffer from PTSD. which in turn affects anxiety. please don't be afraid to ask me questions. I am a mother of a 5 year old and one on the way. My husband is in the military and is gone for up to 6 months at a time out of the year. Its hard but I manage.
Avatar m tn i even suffer from hallucination that my friend who was dead is trying to kill me . sometimes from situational anxiety. so what do u suggest for a pshycic like me .
Avatar f tn for now you need to concentrate on just YOU AND NO ONE ELSE, get yourself past this rough spot, and if the ex is a nut case, be glad your free of her, things will get better for you soon, just keep it up, you will be glad you did in the end... i think i have heard something about celestial seasonings sleepy time tea? chamomille tea???
Avatar f tn at 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. And if you get on one long-term, you can stay pretty much anxiety free.
