  • 1What are symptoms of a recovery panic attack, anxiety,depression?

    In recent months I have had a lot of changes in my husband's layoff , loss of a home, move to another state , starting a new job , and after a car accident just great. Just after the car accident that was fine , but a month later I started with a panic attack . I thought I was dying I rushed to the emergency room and they took blood tests , examined my chest , blood pressure and the doctor said it was normal . The doctor said it was a panic attack and depression. After that I was not able to go to work for 2 weeks. I could not swallow the food I thought I was going to drown , after I could not sleep . I was afraid to sleep . And finally , my head felt like it was clogged along with all my ears . I could not see anyone who was not able to talk much and I was very pale . I lost weight rapidly.After lil therapy and other things like meditation , yoga , herbal remedies I'm feeling much better . I can socialize , I am able to eat even though I have no appetite . I am able to work . But when I'm alone , I still feel dizzy , as if my body is ready to quit , I still feel like I'm dying , but I do not feel my heart racing more . Even thought I physically look better , feel inside me chest tightness and severe burning , but not there. I do not know if that's part of the feeling of anxiety but I think all day every day . Only sleeping makes me feel better when I think about my body is ready to quit. As soon as I wake up these symptoms are these symptoms persists inside.Are normal after my body has gone ?

  • 3What do you do to feel better or get through when you're experiencing an anxiety/panic attack or depression?

    I'm currently going through some medical problems. I am a young adult and have been formally diagnosed with hypothyroidism, pernicious anemia, hormone/vitamin imbalances, sleep apnea and subclinical Cushing's. These illnesses have been physically devastating as well as mentally hard to push through. While dealing with these problems, I have added severe stress being put on me due to personal matters within my life. This stress has put me into a depression and the last few days I've had panic/anxiety attacks on and off. I already feel physically horrible when everything is okay, so this additional stress is taking a bad toll on me. I feel physically and emotionally crippled and I just want to feel better and stop the anxiety for some sort of relief. Any suggestions? All advice is appreciated xx

  • 10Panic attack? When to go in?

    I recently lost my health insurance and haven't been able to receive treatment for my anxiety and depression. Lately I've had a few little attacks, but nothing major. I wasn't feeling that great today, started getting a migraine, then I also learned today my father has cancer ontop of his spinal disease. I har had severe chest tightness, a very painful migraine, crying spells, and painful muscle tightness...I know this is likely a panic attack due to the events in my life right now. Without insurance I am at a loss on what to do. I dont know if I should go to the ER? Will they even treat me? Would they lock me up for observation? I don't want to wake my husband up to take me if it's not necessary. Advice please? An only serious comments.

    I keep thinking about what if I have another one in school...and I can't stop!What can I do to get my mind off of it??I'm afraid that it will happen again when I go to school tomorrow!


    I have panic attack everyday. Sometimes I forgot how to breathe, I ended up suffocating. I am 19, and is it normal for you to have pain in body but pain itself doesnt mean anything?? It seems like it's getting worse. How can I avoid that? I cant get out of the house. I have phobia disorder, I am scared to go outside. and also my phobia disorder has blocked me from taking anti-depressant. I eat like half of a meal a day I have hard time swallowing food and pills. I am losing 5 pounds every week. I weigh 149. How can i improve my phobia disorder and panic attack?
