Im not quite sure, but I think I might get some slight panic attacks. For no reason at all.Its a very annoying state of mind. Out of no where ill suddenly get really nervous or scared. I feel sick & i just want to get up and go outside and walk around alot and never stop. Sometimes my feet and hands get really red. Im usually a very outgoing person, but when these attacks come on I feel like I cant do anything. They worry me too. Especially now that im going to be going to a new school. I dont want this to happen.Does anyone know of anything that might help?I would really appreciate it.
That sounds like you're just anxious in general.When you have an anxiety attack (panic attacks), you generally have an overwhelming sense of fear. With your physical symptoms, you start to feel dizzy, lightheaded, you can't breath, you almost feel like you're having a heart attack. You feel like you're going to pass out and you have to lie down and wait for it to pass. Afterwards, you just feel exhausted and you want to sleep. You may want to keep track of your symptoms (write them down) and if it becomes a pattern, go see a doctor.
That does sound like an anxiety attack, but not (thank goodness) a full-blown panic attack. Cognitive therapy, as Helmsman suggests, where you deal with your thoughts, could be helpful. You can combine it with learning relaxation techniques. Some people are better at these than others, but they can be very good at calming your system down and stopping it producing the adrenalin that is causing the symptoms.If cognitive therapy fails and the attacks are disabling or very distressing, there is medication (prescribed by a doctor) you can take when you have an attack.
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW!!
This is an old thread
But i finally realized what my panic attacks were from. I am VERY claustrophobic!!!
The other day at my job i was trying to make ice cream in the back & there were like 5 people around me doing all these different things & then there was also the big ice cream making machine, a trash can that smelled like puke, & a tooon of boxes.
I started feeling really weird...like "woow..were pretty packed in here". So i stepped away from everyone & then BAM hit the floor, only to wake up to my HOT manager looking over me with a look like "wtf is wrong with you?":blush:
i get "slight" panic attacks sometimes, if thats possible
but its not so much panicking
its more like anger, and depression, and a bunch of other things all at once
i get really hot and sweaty
and have a REALLY bad sudden headache
and my vision gets blurred
and i get all depressed and wanna hurt myself
idk i think its more totally freaking out that anything
but it doesnt happen very often.
maybe once a month
