I was just curious if anyone else suffers from this? It's been an ongoing battle for me since I was 27.. now 43. I have it pretty bad..No trigger points just out of the blue. I'm on meds but maybe they need to be tweaked. What do you that helps you cope.. get out of the funk it throws you into? Special foods/diet to make it better? I've cut all pop and caffeine out! I am going to start seeing a therapist next week... to try and develop better coping skills. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated! :-)
Hey Shawn, I have attacks so much I can't leave my home or drive a car. I walk outside without my husband and daughter I wake up in a hospital. That is how bad my anxiety was just three years ago. Two years ago I requested to be taken off anxiety meds. I decided to fight. I went to a doctor that believed in homeopathic meds. She drew my blood and told me what my body was lacking. Everybody should exercise and for those take meds do your exercise in the sunlight. Drink plenty of water more than usual to help flush out the fillers. Stick to a health diet cut down on your red meat intake unless you know. You are about to burn it exercising. As far as health supplements after you get stuck they will tell you all you need. To start drink tea. Every grocery store has an aisle that has tea for you. I can't take pills due to the fillers. I keep dandelion root, chamomile crushed, calcium with vitamin d, and all the tea I may need.
I used to have panic attacks but have not had any in 2 1/2 years I gave my live to the Lord he helped me ...Jesus has taught me that all the troubles of this life don't have to get to me I just.give it to him ..we are his children he wants to trust that he knows best and know that he will handle it .he loves us
I used to have palpitations, tachycardia, and chest pain occuring out of the blue about 4 years ago. One friend suggested that I go see a physician. I did, and she referred me to psychiatrist upon negative physiological results. I was in therapy for anxiety disorder, and the therapist prescribed antidepressants. But the symptoms did not go away. It actually worsened. The psychiatrist referred me to a better cardiologist, and found out I had mitral valve prolapse, very common in women, which has the same exact symptoms of anxiety and panic disorder. Apparently my old doctor misdiagnosed me and did not do extensive tests. My cardiologist put me on medications and my anxiety attacks very rarely occur. I suggest go see a cardiologist first. Do keep us updated :)
I do use some of these supplements but I am gluten intolerant. So that is why I drink the tea and use powder or liquid form. Please meditate, learn breathing, and get rid of stress in your life. We all hope we have helped in some small way.
I have been to see a cardiologist ... clean bill of health :)
I am going to try some supplements... check out the therapist.. and just try not to let my thoughts get the best of me.... mind over matter!
It's weird I can go months and months without an episode and then BOOM - its like I'm playing dodge ball... last person standing ... everyone has a ball but me! And I'm fixing to get wrecked! Lol
Overwhelming to say the least!
But I've got this!
I want to say Thank you for your kind words.. sharing your stories and what works for you!
I'll post after my first visit with therapist.... looking forward to it!!
Good Vibes to you all!! :)
