Firstly I do want to say without a doubt that at the very beginning of what I've experienced consistently for over 7 months now was triggered from a huge panic attack.
What caused it was mostly me just relaxing on the lounge and it almost felt as if like a creeping water sensation started making it's way up my leg and that was is. Basically my response to it was clearly "Something isn't right, and instead of fighting it, I jumped up and started spinning out." But the body response was so severe I've questioned if it left me with permanent damage. I was so shook up to the point that I couldn't feel anything inside my body like complete numbness and the only thing that I could feel was my heart rapidly beating.
But then after that day I had a similar episode 2 days later (which was in june) and I haven't had a panic attack or a response like that since.
But when I say I question if it left me with permanent damage or not is that ever since that day the tingling, pins and needles, bone weakness, numbness, weakness, weird sleep experiences (Such as jolting awake before asleep, another experience I've also been having is instead of actually falling asleep it's like my mind is still active but I feel like I'm falling then I also jolt awake) It's legitimately a weird experience to experience and definitely does feel similar to that of what i would imagine sleep paralysis to be although if it is I really am not bothered because these episodes have happened quite frequently on and off over the last year or so.
But basically as much as this has been happening to me (the symptoms) in the last 7 months since the first approach to these new symptoms I've remained as calm as I possibly can, Avoided doctor google and just overall tried to manage the best I can.
The problem is just that no matter what I've tried to do differently it still persists. I've had MRI scans came back with 3 lesions that're from smoking, he confirmed it wasn't MS now this brings me back to the reality I keep hearing is that it's "Anxiety" but for someone remaining as calm as possible through this ordeal that in all honesty for people to deal with this on a daily basis for 7 months surely most would consider suicide. I have heaps through this ordeal but I couldn't ever because the effect it would have on my family would break them. But even my mum and brother don't know what to do. My doctor tells me everytime I go there "Your blood pressure is perfect"
Trust me on one thing, despite my pyschologist telling me "You have to change your thought patterns" I've done that, but the problem is what this suffering is doing day in day out and has been doing it for so long what can I do differently to fix it?
Do you's think this is anxiety? or can something abnormal actually be taking place? I understand the symptoms I'm experiencing can relate to anxiety. I just hope I am not alone with these exact symptoms.
