So scared

Posted , 6 users are following.

I am so fed up of feeling this way. I feel I am on the verge of a breakdown or something. I am so scared I keep having heart palpitations like skipped beats and it scares me so much. I keep having twicthes all over mainly my toes and I can't stop worrying something serious is wrong. How can someone feel so unwell daily and there be nothing wrong? I am even more scared because its affecting my sleep everytime I try to nod off I jerk awake or wake trying to catch my breath and my heart racing and it can continue for hours before I finally fall asleep. I think I am dying. I am so scared I dont know who to turn to and my GP doesn't do anything he just says its anxiety like its nothing. Anyone else experienced the same symptoms?

      Hi thank you for the reply. What are your main symptoms? And do anti-depressants work for you? I guess when ever I see my doctor I just feel like I walk away like I have not been understood like as if I am a broken record its nothing to a doctor that must see this all the time they don't realise how much I suffer every day x

      I wake up feeling very anxious, I feel soo low that I feel ill never be better, I cant stay in the house, I walk around all day, cant concentrate, cant do house work, I get emotional very quick, get scared I'm going mad, cos all I can do is think how I'm feeling, bad dreams scare me, the layer part of the day I'm a bit calmer, but I hardly eat, lost waight, only sleep 2 to 4 hours a night, if at all, you?

    Please don't be scared!! The reason you are jerking when your falling asleep is because your brain is on high alert! Because you've become so scared and anxious your body is responding to keep you alive and out of danger that's why you are experiencing all these symptoms. I promise your not going to die! You are just in a vicious circle of anxiety and you need to break it! Try breathing into a paper bag or controlled breathing. Breath in for 4 seconds hold it for 2 and breath out again for 4 seconds. Your going to be ok!! Xx
