Common Questions and Answers about How long can anxiety attacks last


580667 tn?1234584552 I've done some searching on the Web about anxiety attacks and how long they last. Most of the places I've looked at said they usally last 10-20 minutes. This has been a little distressting. When I'm having an attack, it can last up to an hour. My anxiety starts off mild, then gets progressively worse, then goes back down. Maybe my actual attack is only 10-20 minutes and the rest is just residual anxiety, but I'm not really sure. SO...
Avatar m tn However, I kept getting symptoms which are classic signs of anxiety. My one question is how long can these affect me? Two months later and I still get dizzy spells almost daily, chest heaviness, a cloudiness to were I can't concentrate on anything and digestion problems. Will these eventually go away? I've been to my Primary Care about 4 times in the last 2 months. If I don't have a sinus infection or something then these must be caused by stress? Are these purely psychosematic?
Avatar f tn The time period for how long varies by person, how much, what and how long they used. I was told the brain resets itself every 7 days the first month, then every couple weeks, then every 30 days, so you can expect to have these thing crop up from time to time for up to a year.

Avatar f tn I have to panic attacks and I read at the peg itron 2b web site that the peg itron 2b can cause panic attacks is this true? My panic attacks got so bad last year had to take time off work. I no longer take anything for them, just as needed. Does anyone else have panic attacks and take the peg itron 2b? My doctor has his mind set on this treatment instead of the other even though I told him the sides from the other were less.
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 m tn My main concern is the PVC's and how often they happen or how long they last. What is the normal length of a PVC and can they happen several back to back and you still be in the safe zone? I sometimes get a flip flop feeling that lasts 5 to 10 secs in my chest and was told by someone else that PVC's are usually just a quick faint feeling with a skipped feeling in the beat as it kicks back in.

Avatar n tn After extensive tests on my heart, I am starting to come to terms with the idea that anxiety is playing a role in my fast heart rates. I have a basic question though. Can anxiety last for a whole day? I understand that panic attacks come and go but let me give an example. Last Saturday, I had to go to a meeting. On the way to the meeting I felt perfectly fine, my heart was beating in the 70's.
1422823 tn?1287682880 Does anyone here have anxiety or panic attacks when certain symptoms come about? A few years ago, I passed out while being out with some friends. Went to the ER, cause unknown (of course). Ever since then it seems like the moment I start feeling dizzy or light headed, which is every day now, I think I am having what may be a panic attack. I start to feel like I have tremors, my heart races and the dizziness gets worse.

974211 tn?1248017465 And as far as how long panic attacks, which are the same thing as anxiety attacks, last, that totally depends on the situation and the person. Although the most intense anxiety only lasts a while, anxiety can remain elevated for hours afterward. Have you ever had talk therapy so you can understand your condition better?
780253 tn?1237559519 8 they were bad along with insomnia. TSH that is hyper can cause anxiety and/or attacks which you describe. I would also get heart palps. Are you on meds at this time? Sometimes a combo of one dose one day and a lower one the next day helps, too .. it took about 10mos to get the meds good and then future bouts of tweeking.
1348086 tn?1370786785 How can I convince myself that my shortness of breath is my anxiety. I usually have an attack and then by the end of the day I get over it. This one has been going on since yesterday and I have it in my head that since I have been feeling short of breath that I have something else wrong.
Avatar f tn So I've suffered with anxiety and panic attacks for about 8 years. I used to be on medication for them for a long time til I finally realized I didn't want to be dependent on the medications. I had became addicted and eventually weaned myself off of them completely. It's been about 2 years and I've been fine without them. But here lately I've been having a bit of anxiety. My fear is when I go into labor I'll have a full blown panic attack and that scares me to death.
Avatar f tn My anxiety started with the "night attacks". The Dr. started with taking it all of the time, plus regular doses of paxil. Hated paxil, so went to just xanax and lorazapan before bedtime. Then he put me on Lexapro daily and xanax or lorazapan as needed. I normally can tell when it is needed before I go to bed. I have learned "my triggers" and stopped or decreased "My triggers".
Avatar n tn I just had a nose revision surgery post 10 days and I am experiencing anxiety attacks. I have had one previous surgery where I had the same experience. I am desperate!!! I have uncontrolable heart palpitations. I don't want to take lorzepram !! I am thinking of doing a body cleanse detox to flush everything out of my body. Is this wise? I typically do not suffer from anxiety, except after post surgery, WHY?!?! Is this typical ? Also, I am out of breath alot.
Avatar f tn So after becoming completely sober and starting to eat great and waking up and doing my day to day things why do I still feel this way? How long does this last? What kind of doctor do I see? I have to constantly tell myself not to go to the ER because 1. It's expensive and 2. I am getting new insurance. I really can't take much more of this. I will try anything to feel myself but I also don't do good with any form of drugs (lorazepam Xanax) they make more worse than I already am.
