Hi, I am new here and have been googling no stop about my symptoms although I know what is going on with me. About two weeks ago, I was so stressed out and didn't sleep for two days which lead to a terrible panic attack because I thought I was going crazy after reading the effects on the brain if you don't sleep. I was so scared that I signed myself into the psychiatric unit where I stayed for 3 days and was told that it was definitely just anxiety. Fast forward to today, my body has been tense, my neck, back, shoulder, head, everything and I've been feeling weird nonstop like things aren't real. Like I'm disconnected and living in a dream. I also feel like I might randomly freak out. When I don't get sleep, I often think back on the articles I read about what happens to your brain when you lose sleep which only makes me lose sleep and make my anxiety worse. I've only been dealing with this anxiety for about a little over two months. It all started after I loss my close friend to cancer and then the googling began and so did my anxiety. How do I get out of this terrible loop, I really don't want to live like this for years. It's scary and I wish I'd never googled. It's so depressing and crippling.
