Some quick info on my condition. I was diagnosed with mononucleosis/glandular fever in Oct 2015 and now i am dealing with a post viral syndrome/chronic fatigue type of illness. You might be aware with this virus that it's common to feel better and then relapse and then feel better and then relapse. Well,1 week ago i experienced a relapse and my anxiety has been through the roof. I have been having multiple panic attacks during the day, negative racing thoughts etc. This morning i woke up feeling ok but shortly after getting out of bed i experienced a different style of panic attack. I began feeling SEVERELY depressed and felt like i was going insane as well as anxiety but honestly the severe depressive feeling was the stand out symptom. I felt suicidal it was that bad. It was absolutely terrifying. I went to the ER because i wanted to get assessed by a doctor because i felt like i was literally going mad.
I've had many panic attacks in my life but never one quite like that.. i didn't even realise it was a panic attack until the doctor and mental health care nurse reassured me. Of course i'm absolutely terrified of it happening again now.. I just wanted to reach out and see if anyone else has experienced this type of panic attack? I was sweating and shaking uncontrollably and felt like rolling up into a ball and dying and i don't put that lightly.. it was just horrible.
Hope to hear from someone. Thanks!
