Need some support after miscarriage

Posted , 3 users are following.

I went for my 12 week scan last week and was told there was no heartbeat, since then I have miscarried and although I cried the day of the scan I have not properly cried since I just keep feeling a sense of doom like my heart racing or thoughts of something bad is going to happen to me ie pass out or I keep getting the urge to go to hospital to check me over. It doesn't help that I have tinnitus again which I had in my first pregnancy which was really bad and lasted after the birth but it eventually calmed down for 2 years where I could not hear it. I keep thinking I have something wrong with my heart although I have had all the cardiology tests. In the pregnancy I had some palpitations and since the miscarriage I have had weird chest feelings while asleep like I woke last night thinking is my heart to slow and also my partner said the day I went for the scan well on that night I woke up and jolted forward gasping and looked around then I went back to sleep. Does this sound like anxiety? I've had something similar before when I felt really anxious everytime I would drift off I would wake gasping for air. I have just woke from a nap and before that I was aware of my heart beating which has since calmed down I just feel like I could cry because inside I feel scared and I dont know why. Thanks for any replies in advance.

      I only had bloods done about 2 weeks ago which included anemia and was all normal. Its not like daily I get them I just noticed them more so since being pregnant but I did see the gp about it who wasn't concerned and said to relax more.

    I have anxiety and very bad palputations come with it. I have gone to the ER sure I was having a heart attack!  I do a lot of deep breathing and there are a lot of really good apps out there that have helped me a lot.  I have woke in the middle of the night like that as well.  What you are going through is very tramatic and you need some time and help working through it.  I did not work through some things from my past and now it is harder to get over. Good luck and I am sorry for your loss!
