Common Questions and Answers about What is acute panic anxiety reaction


Avatar n tn Long term Anxiety/Depression conditions (general, panic, somatization). Current Acute Stress situation, starting to taper now. All of a sudden joints in shoulders, elbows hands ache moderately. Waking with numb hands, cold to touch. Should I exercise this or rest this?
Avatar n tn Based on the information that you have provided, I agree that you had acute anxiety leading to a panic attack, not an allergic reaction. The intensity and vividness of the symptoms you experienced is typical of panic attacks. Both anxiety and the panic attacks that accompany it can readily be prevented or significantly reduced by medicines that can be prescribed by your personal doctor or by a behavioral health specialist.

Avatar m tn So I came home from that visit, still foggy, still without answers, and still wondering what is happening to me. I have a friend who has MS and I have asked her about some of my symptoms - like the fact that I can't seem to recall words quickly, the brain fog in general and the distance vision. She said that when her MS first presented itself, she had vision loss, but it was more complete, like one eye went blind. When I look through a friend's glasses, I can see things clearly.
Avatar n tn It usually involves fear of crowds, bridges, or of being outside alone.
Avatar n tn I have since researched into the drug a bit more and found out that this kind of reaction is what is termed as an acute panic anxiety reaction where a person's fear of losing control gets the better of them. Different to these allergic reactions maybe but it just goes to show all the potential adverse effects smoking pot can lead to. Fair enough, most people get euphoric when they smoke, lucky them! but its just not worth it for the people that don't. It obviously doesn't agree with me.
Avatar m tn Here's what I am feeling (laundry list) is it possible that anxiety/panic and marijuana abuse could cause all of these things? (for example, can an episode of acute stress change your vision) Everyone I know says that it is terribly unlikely that my symptoms (incl the brain fog that is most distressing) are actually neurologically caused. MS, they say, is rare and the coincidence of the panic episode which seemed to cause all of this is almost too weird.
Avatar m tn I personally know when I feel guilty or worried about a situation that is out of my control, I have severe panic attacks. Maybe this is what is happening to you. If you are materbaiting to relieve stress (or for whatever reason), then somewhere in the back of your mind you feel guilty, that could trigger a panic attack. If you have not already seen your MD or a psyc of sorts, you should. There are several meds that help w anxiety.
Avatar m tn I have not had any experiences with cocaine or marijuana in like a year and a half, but I can't imagine that using that stuff while going through anxiety issues is even close to what you're gonna want to be doing. No brainer. 10) Stop drinking strong spirits. I read this on a different site and must be honest when I say I have no idea what a strong spirit is. I'm guessing it's like 80-proof booze that tastes so delicious with Coke. So cut out the Whiskey/Diets or Appletinis.
Avatar n tn If you google Acute HIV Infection, the Wikipedia article is usually the 2nd or 3rd result. Acute HIV Infection illness takes 2 to 4 weeks to have symptoms. I believe the MedHelp article is also pretty similar. You can find it here: http://www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/3149/Acute-HIV-infection Acute HIV Infection is not known to present this quickly. Your doctor in Montreal should be able to determine the exact cause when you visit him.
3166043 tn?1514263618 I think the better question would be how do you deal and what can be done for what you are going through now to alleviate or lessen the symptoms, and what is it that you are going through.
Avatar n tn Additionally, I feel that the fact that marijuana has consistently produced these symptoms as well provides a clue as to what is going on. I am very concerned and would sincerely appreciate any thoughts. Thank you.
183202 tn?1219857259 It just explains a lot about my mentality and symptoms, as well as reaction to certain meds like SSRI's. However, what I have is also typical in most anxiety and panic disorder sufferers, so I could just have an acute case of that alone. MVPS DOES cause Panic Disorder and Anxiety problems too though, so it could be one or the other. However, PLEASE oh PLEASE don't let my bad experiences with SSRI's detter you from trying something that could do WONDERS for you!!
Avatar n tn But i'm wondering if its allergies or what-not at all... is it all just panic?? The thing that troubles me the most is... what if this doesn't stop? What if this week is the first week of my life where I will have daily panic attacks. I'll be dead by 30! Negative thinking I know is the worst.... but i don't want my life to be dramatically changed. Is this where it starts?
3060903 tn?1398568723 ” For example, antidepressants wouldn’t help at all if you waited until you were having a panic attack to take them. Their use is limited to chronic anxiety problems that require ongoing treatment. The antidepressants most widely prescribed for anxiety are SSRIs such as Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro, and Celexa.
Avatar f tn so to speak and stayed exactly where i needed to to accomplish what i had to...i think it is very normal to get that reaction...as humans we are so curious we want to know about everything the whats, whys and hows.....i limited my own personal exposure and it helped alot....you should have seen me before i had my ablation...i swear by the time i was done doing my research and reading up on everything i questioned why i even needed the doctor because i was sure i could do it myself LOL!!!
Avatar n tn The side effects of it outweigh what is going on with you. You are having a reaction to stress. Sometimes it happens immediately, sometimes it happens years after the event. You are certainly having panic attacks and they can be very uncomfortable but one can survive them relatively easily. Its important to stay calm and not feed into it. To shift your thinking, try to censor what you watch on tv, read online, etc. Focus on things that are inane like www.cuteoverload.
Avatar n tn I still suffer of course but I am still working with my doctor on it. My depression is under control to an extent but the panic and anxiety still needs some work. It takes work and a lot of good thoughts so just keep trying and stay with it!!
Avatar f tn I am not sure if anyone knows what this is but basically It starts where i take severe mood swings where i get randomly disproportionately angry for no reason whatsoever. (a minor annoyance is enough to set me off like the bus is late) which is ok and i can deal with this although i might snap a little at a family member of something.
Avatar n tn I don't really know. How's that for some real support? Is your back problem acting up again? My first reaction is to say that I don't think it should cause you any anxiety, not if you know what's going on. But if your anxiety is stemming from the recurrence of this back problem, then maybe it can. So it's perhaps one of those six to one, half a dozen to the other kind of things? I would suggest a visit to your doc for a discussion of these questions and a look see at what your back is doing.
Avatar m tn 1. Everything started after the the original panic attack last june. 2. What triggered the panic attack? 3. Did the panic attack get associated with having a meal with flo's parents in a negative manner? And did it get it "imprinted" in his energy field and strored in cellular memory as a negative event?
Avatar n tn best of luck! hope you feel better!
186166 tn?1385262982 When we suggest that their symptoms are nothing more than anxiety produced, they still have trouble believing that anxiety can produce very real physical symptoms. Below is a excellent list of what anxiety can to someone, both physically and psychologically.
Avatar n tn I tremble in my hands, lips, eye lids, knees, and sometimes inside my body cavity, like around my organs. From what I've read it is our bodies reaction to high levels of adrenaline. If you can calm yourself down you will experience it less. As for the heart issue I too worry about the possible damage that could result from my almost constant anxious state, but my doctors have assured me that the pounding heart and even extra beats are totally harmless.
Avatar n tn my weight is going up? Some days I'm thirsty as a desert? Is this logical? Connected? My husband is extremely understanding with my problems but I feel terrible, whenever I feel. Anyone experiencing similar side affects, any suggestions, WELCOME! Is grass dangerous periodically? Do I STOP Seroxat or try & adjust to the situation? Both options seem impossible?
Avatar n tn The next night I took a full additional pill which has left me with a total of 20mg of Prozac being taken. This did wonders for the withdraw feelings, but the anxiety is over-whelming. I was burning out my skin, shaking, fearful thoughts and feelings raced, and a buzzed feeling has taken over my body. My question to you is, do you think that this anxiety will pass after a couple of weeks or do you think perhaps 20mg is too much for my anxiety? How long of a chance do you give it?
Avatar m tn I'm also going on a long haul flight in 3 weeks and am beginning to worry about what I will do if I was to panic on the plane. (I'd just be screwed I guess, whisky before?!) So what I really need to know is do these symptoms sound like anxiety or am I being a hyperchondriac? And does anybody find alcohol and small spaces make their anxiety worse? Thanks for taking the time to read all this!
Avatar n tn I have suffered from anxiety for almost 3 years now. I also get what is like pains in either side of my head that will just come and then go real quickly..they freak me out I'm always thinking that I have a brain tumor or anerysm...last night I had the really bad and through myself into an attack thinking that I was dying. I have a friend who also suffers from anxiety and I called her and she reminded me that anxiety will cause the pains in the head because she gets them also..
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor, what would be the best way to combat free-floating anxiety? Im a 29 year-old man and about half the time I feel as I have drank 10 cups of coffee. I don't have panic attacks (I have had them in the past so I know what they feel like), but just overwhelming anxiety that lasts for days on end. Im not anxious about anything really, it just feels as my body is revved up, esp in the mornings. Its really effecting my work and social life.
Avatar f tn I get anxious/nervous a lot and my body's reaction is to pee. This perpetuates itself since I then start worrying about peeing as well as whatever worried me to begin with. It's to the point where I worry about having to use the restroom more than anything else. The second I get into a situation where this isn't possible or appropriate, it kicks in. It happens on the bus, at work, during movies, even before sex. Pretty much every facet of my life is affected.
