Worrying amounts of Anxiety/Panick Attacks

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi recently i have accpeted the fact that i have an Anxiety disorder and i wanted to know if i was alone or not in my symptoms,

sometimes i feel weak as if my blood sugar has dropped when it doesnt which sometime triggers my panick attacks! I also get this strange light/numbing/aching feeling on the left side of my chest immediately i think its my heart which i know physiologically it is not. When i also have these panicked thoguhts i feel liek my thougths are runnign away from em liek i am going to go mad or insane or something, i eventually relax and i am ok but its never the end of it. Does anyone else feel this? or soemthing similar? 

I have been to the doctors who have referred me to a CBT (cognitive behavioural therapist) but i am also going to try a psychotherapist. I have a low dose of Diazepam to temporarally help with the anxiety, what treatments have others had? what steps are you taking? am i alone? Thankyou x

    Hi there, your not alone slit of peopke hAcd the same feelings as you do. I would advice for you to not take diazepam fur to long as the every addictive acid yiull feel strange coming off them. I certainly did. But if yo only the eye you feel you need the. You should be fine. Everyday for a long period idbt a good idea. It cold be linked to low blood sugar which you might want to get checked out, but usually it's down to pure anxiety. Do you worry a lot? I started meditation 6 months ago for my own health and panic attacks

      Things like, lavenders oils, if you read up on these oils yiull be surprised what they do and how they can help. Also other natural remedies could be an option if you look into it. The last thing really is finding what makes you panic, how you can look at helping them or stopping them, and talking about how you feel. So ce I've done all these things I'm no longer having them. I'm also finding that I've come out of my shell so not afraid to be around people I don't know etc or under pressure at times, I deal with it much better. If you need any more advice please feel free to ask. I hope you start to get things where you want them soon. Hannah
