Anxiety, panic

Posted by cdcc @cdcc, Jan 7, 2018

I’m back again I awake with severe anxiety not wanting to get out of bed. This is happening every morning. I get up take an Ativan it begins to work about an 1/2 hour later. Still have a hard time with food. Chest pain, feel cold although it’s freezing here in a Maryland. I wonder if these feelings are ever going to ease up? Psychiatrist appt on the 16th someone better do something for me, I don’t want to live like this anymore

Hi cdcc,
I can feel your pain as explained above. I hope you can get some relief from therapy and medication. I’m not a professional in the field of mental health, but I am wondering what you may be afraid of what may happen to you. I’ve learned to be honest with myself and others and face my imagined fears. This is a life long path to accepting oneself and forgiving oneself. God grant me the serenity to accept…………I know how easy it is to give advise when one is feeling good, but it’s so hard to share when one is depressed and scared. I would like to hear from you again and especially when you begin to feel good again. May you be blessed.

@charlie75 The idea of counting random numbers is a good one. I had not heard of that before. It must keep you focused better than counting forwards or backwards. Thanks for sharing that idea.

Hi Teresa,
I had read this in one of the e-mails that I receive, and it has worked for me. I always think it’s a good idea to share ideas from others.
We can all use the help that’s available. Thanks for your comment.

Dear @cdcc — are you still on this site? I have the same symptoms you do! Tense, nauseous, a feeling of doom — like I might drop any second. Then the “spell” passes and leaves me so tired. When I feel it coming on, I run right to my husband so I’m not alone. Had my physical at Mayo last month. All tests are normal. They are going to refer me to a physician at Mayo who handles patients who complain of “spells”. But I’m cautioned that many meds for anxiety have side effects as bad as what’s being treated.
Pretty sure this is all anxiety related, since I can literally bring these horrible feelings on by being upset about something. Other times it just hits me out of the blue. Isn’t this an awful way to live?

Thank you for having great faith in things getting better. It was a crying day for me, my stomach at this time is knotted and I feel nauseous. My poor husband disappeared on my today because he hates to see me like this and can’t help. I ask him please don’t leave me alone because I gave no idea what I’d xausing this and I don’t know what to do for it or to make it stop. Yet a thank you for rep,ying it means so much to me

Hi, @pureinheart — welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Are the depression and anxiety new diagnoses for you? How is it going so far with the antidepressant and the antianxiety meds?
