Anxiety attacks returned 😭 So scared

Posted , 5 users are following.

A few months ago before Christmas I started having panic attacks of started out of the blue I fainted came to in an ambulance had heart palpitations I was tachycardic lightheaded felt like I was dying . I was in hospital for 5 days having ecg X-rays everything tested on the heart everything came back fine , I was confined to my room for 3 weeks feeling so unwell having heart palpitations constantly body shakes . Eventually it went away to a comfortable living style I could manage , recently I had my apendix removed and ever since have been having these panic attacks again heart palpitations body shakes feeling of dread thinking of worse case senarios being in a terrible mood as of it . I keep telling myself it's anxiety and try to breath but nothing is working as soon as I wake up in the morning I instantly feel ill and have this feeling constantly . What do I do I am so worried that something more could be wrong I know it's not but my mind keeps telling me it is I don't know how to stop it . I even had a Valium to go to sleep the other night which usually works but still had a lot of trouble shutting off my thoughts and the body shakes I just want my normal life back

    Maybe a good idea to call your doctor and tell him whats going on. They have longer lasting meds.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are going through that and I am going through the same thing. It sucks!!! Take it one day at a time.

    I have almost constant heart palpitations from my Paxil not working and I can't get off of it because I've been on it 15 years and my body is addicted. My anxiety is horrendous. They want to put me on an antipsychotic drug at a low dose because I can't get off my Paxil

    I feel your pain. I have horrible health anxiety and it's really gotten the best of me lately. I walk on eggshells waiting for something bad to happen. It's scary. My thoughts are filled with fear. I hate it. You're not alone!!
