I went on birth control on may 10th for a small cyst that the doctor felt. I had a pelvic exam 5 months prior to that and nothing was found so I wonder why my doctor suggested birth control . Maybe because I am always asking about my ovulation pain and he felt it would help with that and hel p shrink the cyst faster. Well learning I had a cyst made me feel a little upset but I read and saw that many people develop them especially in their child bearing years and even some people have polycystic overies. So I felt better after reading that because I felt like it was probably normal and would be okay. Well I was real anxious about the going on birth control after reading the side effects but felt like I had to so I did. I went on loestrin and only had headache the first two days and went through the whole pack with no problems. Well he prescribed a generic to start taking after I finished that pack since it would be cheaper and I looked it up and found there was no generic for loestrin yet so I dont know what glidess fe was a generic to. Well I took it for 4 days and from the start of taking it, I began to feel more anxious and had a real bad panic attack one day. I stopped taking it immediately. My panic attack started after I was feeling very anxious on the edge, like I felt like I was on the verge of a panic attack so I happen to check my blood pressure and it was elevated so it automatically freaked me out sending  my blood pressure on up and sending me into an extreme panic attack. HEart beating way too fast, negative thoughts and feeling running over me. Feeling just like I am going to die. Like I need to get my butt to the hospital, you know but I have to tell myself I will be okay and I will make it through it even though I feel like I can't. Anyone else get like this? So I made an appointment with my ob gyn to go in tomorrow. I wanted to tell him about how I did on both birth control and if I had to get back on them, then I want to get on the loestrin since I have no effects. I don't do good with hormones. I hope that maybe the cyst is gone, please pray for me and I pray that everything will be okay and he can give me some positive feedback to make me not worry so much. Like he did not tell me what type of cyst it was, he just said it was mushy like it should be and that was about it. I was not expecting him to find a cyst so I was not prepared to ask those sorts of questions. I get nervous at the doctors and dentist so if I don't write it down I will be anxious and forget it. I would like to start exercising more and eating very healthy! I will begin trying to be more positive and reading positive and inspirational things to help me get throught this anxiety. It can be so hard and feel so alone and so sad sometimes because of it but I do have high hopes and things will be okay.  Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. And  when I am having high anxiety and panic, I think so negative and start beleiving what I am thinking. Like for example, I will think oh no I have hypertension and it will stick with me and I wont be able to control it because I get too stressed. Something crazy like that when all other times I have normal blood pressure and even lower blood pressure at times. I am just like a hypercondriac. And I feel like I am losing my mind or like I just cant take it when I am panic and anxiety mode. It is a scary feeling but it does go away. CAn anyone relate. O yeah forgot to mention I turned 25 in april.

Good Afternoon,

Here is the link to your original thread about the BC pills:

http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=9&m=1762677

I am glad you are seeing your Doctor tomorrow and that you are going to ask about the cyst. Please do write down your questions as I do the very same thing and when I leave the office I realize I forgot to ask important questions. Don't get caught up in the "What If" thinking but just relax and tomorrow will be here before you know it.

Also try not to take your BP when you having a panic attack as it will just cause you more anxiety. Instead concentrate on lowering your anxiety. Take a big breath and know you will be ok.

Gentle Hugs,

Kitt

I appreciate the helpful advice and support given by you all. It really is great to have a place such as this to come to when times get hard and support is needed. I thank you all so much because to hear other people it really helps make people feel better. I wanted to mention that I had not had a full panic attack in a long time and had been controlling my anxiety for a while. And it all got stirred up last week. I know things will get better but It really does help to know there are people like you all out there, it's like a cloud lifted off the shoulders kind of feeling to come here and get feedback. I think that the changes here lately, like starting new birthcontrol and knowing there is a small cyst sort of brought on the anxiety. And I am sure everything will turn out for the best. I know each of you have your own problems as well and I hope the best for all of you. I hope your prayers be answered and that things get better. I keep checking to see if I get any responses so if anyone else can relate I would love to hear about it. When my panic attacks started it was in 07" and I was pregnant with my son. I had them full blast all day everyday. So really it was like having a panic attack for 9 months straight. And I got through that time in my life so I definately know that having some here and there will not be hard. It just is a scary feeling and gets ya all upset when your anxiety is blown off the roof and you have panic attacks. I know that if I can learn to do better positive self talk it will help, and has helped greatly in the past. I hope the very best of health and happiness for each of you reading this.

I feel the same as you do about HW as it has helped me so much over the years. Being able to come here and share with all the members makes me feel comforted.

From reading your post this morning I can tell you are a strong person going through a rough time but never stop believing in yourself.

Remember you are just a click away from people who know where your coming from and what you are going through.

Gentle Hugs,

Kitt

I just wanted to update you all about my doctors appointment. I was so anxious and could not eat before my appointment and just felt extreme anxious. Can anyone relate to that when they go to the doctor. Well asked him everything I wanted and am now reassured about a lot of things. He did a pelvic and the cyst is gone. He told me it was just a simple cyst, not cancerous and that woman develop these each month and they are very normal. I told him about how the second pack of birth control pills messed me up and he said there was probably a different chemical compound and so they gave me samples of the lo estrin which worked good for me. He said to stay on them for about 6 months and if I want to come off I can but if I wanted to stay on them for 20 years I could. So I will begin them tomorrow. They made my face as clear as could be. Which made me happier. I could wear make up on them and it nor break my face out which was great and made me happier which meant less stress and less anxiety. I am feeling much better now you guys. Thanks for the support.

aprilb,

Did your physician give you any ideas on how to deal with this anxiety. I have had very good luck seeing a therapist who helps me analyze my feelings and reactions. She has been really great to work with.

Good luck to you,

Kitt

Hi Anna 101! I have been having PA's for years,so i know exactly how you feel. I am also like a hyperchodriac. Everytime i go to the doctor,the day before i'm on pins and needles thinking they are going to tell me that i have something life threatning. I go through the whole repeated panic attacks and can't eat thing too. Everytime i see something new on my body or feel a feeling i've never felt before,i automatically think the worse! The only way to put my mind at ease is to go to the doctor. I've gotten a little better being that i have been back and forth to the doc and ER dozens of times. But it all makes perfect sense to me considering my panic attacks started as a result of my grandmother dieing of cancer. I guess i feel like the same thing will happen to me. So you are not alone! I would have been scared too if the Dr.told me i had a cyst but i'm glad you are ok now! People with this disorder think like that,it comes with the territory but you have to try your best to think posotive and control your thoughts! I hope everything continues to go well for you!
