Hi I have had 2 panic attacks this week and have constant anxiety. Is it normal to feel like you have been in a round with Mike Tyson!!! I feel all achey and muscles hurt on my chest and back. I have palpitations all the time and a lump in throat which causes heartburn! And just feel weak xxx

    Yes it's normal to feel completely drained after panic attacks. Mentally and physically. I suffer too all day every day and at one point couldn't move off the sofa now I just try to go through the day as normal as possible because I can't seem to get the right help for me. Distraction works well and talking to family about my fears

    Hello, Yes liz17576 it's completely normal to feel that way whenever you've had an episode of panic attack. It also can be the cause of the meds you're taking. Some anti-depressants or anxiolytics have really powerful side effects. There are actually a lot of things you can do, I won't recommend pain killers. If you're already taking anti-depressants then you decided to take pain killers imagined what harm it could do to your kidney. You should intake natural substances instead, those that won't harm your kidneys and that could help ease the pain. You can also do some psychological therapy for the anxiety then physical therapy for the body pains. Don't forget your vitamins and minerals.

    Yep, I always feel so exausted after panic attacks. Something a lot of people don't think about with anxiety is the physical symptoms. Flu like symptoms are really common with anxiety disorders (trust me, i've had every symptom under the sun!). I wouldn't worry about it, it'll pass. I know how fustrating it is though!
