I had a few PAs a few days ago and my anxiety has been extremely high for the past two weeks. I have no idea why it happened all of a sudden and its worrying me. I feared it could be something serious - an illness mocking panic attacks. I'm a worrier but I've learned to let things go -- now I have a fear that I think I'm "letting them go" but instead just burying them inside me. If that makes sense.. I feel as if I want to scream sometimes, randomly.. makes me feel like I'm crazy. I have plans to see a therapist soon to get to the bottom of this. I'm just afraid I have so much bottled up inside me that I'm going to go crazy once it gets out. :| Am I alone..?

And.. with my anxiety, I've been getting headaches and feeling really drained and weak. Is that even normal?

edit:
I know I've asked so many questions already.. but it seems as though the past few days I've been really worrying about whats causing me to worry, so its like an endless cycle and I don't know how to get out of it. Whats really bothering is that.. well, let me try to explain this. I have had some really bad things happen during these past few years. Deaths, illnesses, and so on. I've always felt like I was able to "get over" or come to terms with the bad events. I learn from them and I move on. Since my mother's death, I learned how important it is to accept things as they come - if you can't change them, leave them be, and just move on. But I fear a part of me, deep down, I guess my subconscious, I feel as though I have a lot bottled up. Don't ask me WHY I think this, its just a fear of mine. Is this possible?? I can say 100%, although bad things have happened, I have a GREAT life and I'm really happy.. so why am I so afraid of having troubles bottled up? I don't understand it.. I have a fear that one day, it's all going to come rushing out at once and I won't know how to handle it. Is this possible or just a stupid fear of mine?

Thank you, Mary. :) I will do that. I kinda think the headaches are from just worrying so much, stressing out over whats stressing me out! lol

Kiyuri,

A good therapist could help you figure out whether you really do have anything bottled up.

It almost sounds like the "going crazy" fear that some of us with anxiety have. But as I think someone posted already, if you're able to wonder/worry about it, you're not crazy. Maybe it's the same with bottled up emotions: if you're able to wonder whether they're trapped, maybe they aren't/can't be.

Anyhow, I really hope you get some relief soon. It can be all a person can take sometimes to keep functioning in the middle of a long spell of anxiety, and fighting full-blown panic attacks is incredibly hard and draining.

Hugs,
percycat

Yes I agree with everything above. I have your same problems and symptoms. When I have a full blown panic attack I physically get very sick. I hope you feel better soon. Let me know how things are going. Love love love
