      It's while I sleep I get burning sensation starting from my head and goes down to feet.. it comes in waves every minute or so.. I get tunnel vision.. n my arms n legs get like twisted spastic ally in like a pretzel.. everything this happens my blood pressure gets really high.. like 185 / 125 sometimes higher.. then the panic sets in on top of it because I don't know what's happening .. it's so scary.. I don't know how to wait calmly for these tests to come back

      I got the burning sensation in my whOle body after I was prescribed Buspar the first night I took it I woke up feeling like I was on fire it lasted until I took an ativan. Are you on medications for anxiety bc they cause burning. How long have you had this? And how long does it last and how often does it happen only when sleeping? I have never had leg spasms but I definitely get burning sensations as well as cold sensations and a lot of other symptoms. When did the spasms start happening?

      It started about 4 weeks ago.. I'm on Lexapro 20mgs.. Latuda 20mgs. Visteral 50mgs. Klonopin .5mg 2x a day n .5mg xanax 3x a day as needed for panic attacks.. I barely ever take the xanax though unless it's a really severe panic attack.. n yes only happens at night while I'm sleeping . It wakes me up.. I don't have ptsd either.. it lasts maybe an hour of more it comes in waves

      Does it happen everynight? Do you get the burning, tunnel vision, and arm and leg spasms together? I know what your going through. I have been having severe anxiety and panic attacks for 5 months and whole bunch of symptoms that scare me so bad sad

    I don't have much advice , but I can pray you will be okay and tell you to put everything in the hands of the lord and he will get you through whatever trials you are confronted with , there is a vitamin called L-Theanine its all natural it helps relax you , from the anxiety you can Google it ,and look it up on YouTube also .

    Make sure to let your doctor how the benzos are barely working, possibly could be upped?

      I am sorry that people have made that difficult for those of us that need them to have a life.  Have you considered asking your doctor to up your Lexapro?  See when we are on a medication it can level off, and we need it upped?  Sometimes we just need it up because the dosage is not enought.  Consider talking with your doctor about that.
