Panic disorder

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey new to this. Have had panic disorder for years now and still can't seem to understand the way they come from no where. I take anti anxiety meds but that's just a bandaid to the root of panic. The real problem is the Depersonalizing that's scary and the skin on fire. I train Brazilian jiu-Jitsu and it helps but I have been on fire lately with panic attacks and just thinking negative almost as if I'm looking for the panic to arrive. The mornings are the worst music helps but sometimes I wake up middle of nigt like I ran a marathon skin on fire mind racing heart flying and have to eat a benzo to calm down then next day I'm scared that it's gunna happen again at night then don't wanna sleep or I wake up and almost wait for it.

    Hi Phil. Have you had any type of therapy or counselling?  You may find it helps to talk through everything and try to get to the root of the problem.  I spent years panicking and avoiding things to keep myself safe and it wasn't until I went to my third counsellor/therapist that I found someone I connected with and we sorted my problems out.  If you're waking up panicking it seems like it's something your subconscious is dealing with so a therapist might be able to help you uncover what it is.

      I haven't had counseling. I just try to keep a good thought process but it's hard because I think about my disorder more than I should. The dream feeling I get and symptoms of oanic disorder sucks !

    have you read the medical notes with your medication for side effects. The burning skin may well be one so see a dr once you have checked it out.
