Hi gals - I had a bad episode (after feeling pretty good for a few weeks) on Sat. morning. It was familiar - heart racing, feeling of lightheadedness, head pressure, panic, a need to crawl out of my skin, etc. It went on for a good hour. I took .25 mg of Xanax which usually calms it down but leaves me feeling a little groggy. Anyway, I recovered ok, felt mostly fine the rest of the day and Sunday. Then I was going to bed last night after reading for a bit and started feeling WEIRD. Like I couldn't really think straight, and my heart started pounding and I felt really off/spacey like I was going to faint (while lying in bed!). I got up and took my pulse - it was 125. I also felt dizzy and nauseous. I took .25 mg again of Xanax (which I only do when it is really bad) and after about an hour or so felt like I could lie down and try to sleep. This morning I feel weak, tired and headachey. Heart rate is still up but not like it was last night. I just finished a strange period cycle - heavy bleeding for three days, gone for 3, then back with spotting for another 3. Does anyone else feel like their symptoms flair around your cycles? Mine are unpredictable and erratic. Also, I'm just venting here and feeling frustrated because I felt pretty good for a time, then wham - got hit with all the crap again. 😦
