Having a rough night

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm having a rough night tonight Everytime I try to close my eyes and go to sleep my chest feels weird almost constantly. Like mild adrenaline and flip flops kinda hard to explain I really don't know how to explain this. Cause it kinda feels like my heart will just stop or something or like creepy crawly feeling in the heart chest area. If anyone knows what I'm trying to explain is this truly anxiety it's really hard to believe when I'm not panicking. It seems it starts as soon as I try to go to sleep I'm not even thinking of anything or obsessively fearing anything. I just want this to all stop so bad

    I CANT SLEEP NOW BECUASE OF THE SAME FEELING. I have the hardest time explaining it to others. It's like an uncomfortable feeling but it feels scary like something bad will happen if I ignore it and just go to sleep. Pretty sure it's anxiety related. Wish I knew how to stop it though.

      Yes that's how it feels like something bad will happen and I just keep praying that nothing does. It's hard to go to sleep when it starts on its own and you don't know how to make it stop. I sleep with TV on to try to distract me from this doesn't help. Slow deep breathing with all lights off and TV. I've tried warm bath or shower before bed to help it doesn't. Chamomile tea nothing helps I bought magnesium 250mg today but waiting til tomorrow to ask dr if into start taking

      I am very glsd you are checking with your doctor before using magnesium supplement. Very wise, dear Pamela.

      I also have the nighttime sleep stuff. TV does help me. I put on a station with no commercials, like PBS and turn low....someone discussing something (not anything exciting) and it works most of the time. Oh, and sleeping on the sofa rather than my bed. Go figure?? But it works.

      I've basically pushed hubby to the couch I toss and turn and need all of the bed its horrible. I turn it on Netflix I hate commercials. And some women on the perimenopause board suggested to try it but asking dr first I also got low dose 250mg. I've been wondering if maybe hormones is what's really behind all this a anxiety and horrible symptoms. But the anxiety is the worst by far and way worse then I've ever dealt with

I hope you all find some peace and rest from this
