Hey everyone, hope you all doing well.
I came back to this forum to share my story and somehow try to help everyone, as someone who went through hell and back because of anx/panic disorder I know how much of a reliev it can be to know thst someone has felt the same as you.
So all of this started 3 and a half months ago, had my first ever panic attack after smoking some strange weed, didnt k now what a panic att was back then all I did was imagine myself at hospital my mom and dad coming to see me and other really bad things.. Fast forward i went through the day and told no one
3 days later i got an urge like a flush from my stomach associated with weakness lots of adrenaline and I immediately though i had a heart attack, got rushed to ER, this hqppened another 2 times exactely the same way within 2 days
Did every kind of test everything came out fine, got put into diazepam by a psychaitriat..
Fast forward took the pills for 2 weeks and i was having panic attacks only when the effect wore off but I wasnt happy with that.
Went on and saw anothet 3 psychiatriats until i decided to drop everything. I dropped every medication (worth mentioning i have abused xanax last year without even being prescibed)
Ive been through hell and back because the symtoms kept changing. Started with panic attacks moved into body achss foggu brain, anxious all day, extreme fatigue, body aches, head sometjmes felt full, had emotional breakdowns first month, 1 week after i stoped everything (was only taking magnesium and b6) i was still getting lots of physical symptoms(body aches some days, shortness of breath, chest pains, extreme fatigue, random head aches, rashes on my skin rarely) but I was happy cause the classic panic attacks were gone, I was stable emotionally, I got my memory back, I was able to try convice myself that it was just anxiety. I kept going for anothet 2 months until it completrly faded away.. 3 months in from the first panic attack i was 90% rid of physical symptoms, was suffering from a bit of derealisation( thinking i was gonna die really soon couldnt think of future because of it lol) but i tool magnesium for couple more days and I tried to keep myseld.busy with university and other stuff and it eventually faded away 95%.
Stay strong brothers and sisters, after each dark night a bright day will follow up.
Try to do what you like, dont be concerned with your health, dont convice urself that something is wrong or has been wrong forever, dont feel GUILTY!
If you happen to get anxious about ur health like i did find a good doctor and visit him if u really need to, dont feel ashames to do it, it wont last forever, youll eventually get back to normal life. Nothing lasts forever neither good or bad, sometimes how long it lasts is not in our hands, but how WE handle it is always in our hands!
Id suggest everyone to take magnesium and b6 since theyre harmless(not suggested to take magnesium longer than 3 months though) find someone you trust to talk to and get evrything out of ur chest... everything.. even the small details you might think that are not contributing to this, of even better start CBT.
Oh Ive also started believing in god, it really helped because having someone you know you can rely on can really help us, anxious people.
