I'd like to preface this by saying that prior to my first panic attack episode about 3 months ago, I had never experienced anything remotely as scary or debilitating as the anxiety I experience on most days since then. I am not an anxious person (besides treating my 3 siberian huskies as my kids) and have never experienced a panic attack until then (I am 33).
I experimented with kratom for about a month prior to the first episode, and my first panic attack actually occurred the first day off of it. Naturally, I chalked all this anxiety up to being withdrawals from kratom although I didn't really even take that much the four weeks I tried it.
I even experienced a few days here and there of being mostly anxiety-free. The past few days have not been good and it has been effecting my work and life in general.. and I'm really sick of feeling like this. The only other possibility I figure could be triggering this is that prior to all of this I worked out regularly and had a pretty clean diet. I started a new job and have been there about a year and since then I haven't exercised regularly and my diet has been crap. The past three days I've made a conscious effort to work out and eat clean but it seems every morning I wake up and am immediately aware of my heart beating in my chest, a really tight feeling, and it just stays that way for the whole day.
Other symptoms I have are an occasional light-headedness, my stomach feels bloated and distended, no regular bowel movements (possibly from all the magnesium I've been taking), depersonalization when it gets really bad, tightness in the chest and left flank that sometimes migrates around to the abdominal area, and just an overall sense of wondering if I'm gonna just drop one of these days. When I lit or run I feel better but it returns.
I had blood worked up and everything looked normal. I don't have insurance and I feel like I can handle stuff myself but this feels like it's been going on forever. It's really frustrating. I've been supplementing with l-theanine, magnesium, vitamin c, taurine, vitamin d, ashwagandha, 5-htp, and vitamin b complex.
It just sucks. Has anyone had any success in getting rid of this garbage?
