What is going on with me?!?!

Posted by jt5369 @jt5369, Feb 8, 2019

Hi! I’m 37 and within the past 6-8 months I have started having anxiety. It all first started after drinking a lot of wine one night waking up next day with the worse stomach pain. In which turned into me going to urgent care feeling like I was going to pass out. From that point they sent me to er. I sent myself into full blown panic attack in which I had never had and thought I was dying. After ct scan, blood work, and ekg everything came back fine. Now several month later I have noticed having anxiety issues more and more. Now to a point where I have the tightness in my chest ,pain in my stomach like I’m dying. I have been prescribed Hydroxyzine To take on as needed basis to control that on edge feeling. I have noticed I find myself taking these more often than not. I just don’t know what’s going on. Should I be concerned?!?! I am just over feeling like this.

No just the head pain.but the head pain has reduced a lot unlike last month.l was scared I was going to die but now that fear is gone just the worried feeling of when this thought would stop completely and how it will stop.sometimes I feel sleepy more this days.i believe it will stop I guess I'm just worried over nothing.just like the fear left on its own and the pains has reduced the thought would go too

@jason223– There you go! I know the feeling of wanting things to happen immediately but somethings do take time Jason. Keep yourself busy, exercise if you can- to get even healthier! Please let me know how you are doing! By he way, what happens every month to trigger the head pain? Do you get a shot?

Don't know what caused it at first.just started from stiff neck for couple of months constantly falling sick.that brought the fear.the stiffness stop and immediately started feeling like head was cutting from the starting to the bending of my skull that brought the fear.sometimes. My mind keeps trying to find that cutting feeling.how did you get over your panic attack?

Do you think if I engage more in activities the thought would go?

@jason223– I definitely think that it will help! But as I said I can not tell you if it will, absolutely.

@jason223 I can tell you if I do nothing I will spiral down into the deep and dark pit. Not a place I want to be. Keeping my body/mind connection healthy is the only thing that helps me. I can also tell you is is not an easy thing. It taketh drive and determination. There is support, encouragement and information here on connect. What you choose to do is up to you.

@jason223 I had severe head pain in 2009. So bad I was afraid I was going to die. Do you have a dentist you see regularly? I do have TMJ and this was the cause of my headaches. Stress does make it worse which scares me for fear that terrible pain will return.
A thought as I was kicked to the curb being accused of things I knew were not true. Keep trying.

@jason223 Keeping my mind and body busy thus disallowing these fears to become repetitive. I dwell there and the pain becomes worse as I clench my teeth. Take notice when the headaches increase.

@jason223 I do not take anxiety medication nor do I drink alcohol to help (a vicious trap) with anxiety and panic attacks (those do feel like death is imminent). It takes time, practice and work to see improvement. There are no magic/quick solutions.
