Wiley do you have a doctor you can call and get into see immediately
You have meds for your nerves am I corret ?
If so mybe you need to take something to help you calm down n stop worrying or go for walk in nature it will take your mind off of negative things and help you IMO
do you have a friend that you can call and see what they are doing maybe you could go out walking together
How about music does that help you at all or reading??
You need to find something to occupy you mind and keep it from this constant worry
Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing
** If you have alot of questions which you have had today make a list and post them all together making it more easy for you and other members to get the answers or give input
Just a thought

Thanks Howlyncat,

I am seeing my doctor tomorrow afternoon.  She is my general doctor and I am comfortable with her.  I am going to go for a run.  Excersise, regardless of how I feel tends to pick my spirits up. 

Does it sound as though there is any help for me?

Hi Wiley and welcome to the forum. Of course there's help for you! I remember feeling that way too when I first was diagnosed with PD. It seemed like I was dying or going nuts, or both, but here I am 9 years later, and although I still have anxiety, I lead a pretty normal life. For me, meds were a neccessity at first. I was having several panic attacks a day and I couldn't think straight. Don't give up on the ssri drugs, sometimes it takes awhile to find the right one. Perhaps your doc could prescribe you some Xanax too for a little while. I was on Paxil and then Celexa for awhile, but I've been off the meds for about 7 years. I really think that the serotonin levels in my brain had gotten so off, that I needed the drugs to get back to normal and start from square one again. I would definitely schedule and appt with a psychiatrist (the best doc to go to for prescriptions because they are the most knowledgeable) or some type of counseler if you haven't already. One of the things that helped me the most was talking to a psychologist. She was able to explain to me why I was having all these physical and mental symptoms and she taught me a couple of simple breathing exercises. The breathing is still key for me. Breathe in slowly through your nose, hold and and exhale through your mouth or nose. Many symptoms of anxiety are caused by getting too much oxygen. Also know that sometimes things going on in your life can add up and give you anxiety. Big life changes especially, like graduation, marriage, job changes, health issues, etc. At the height of my panic my mom had just been diagnosed with alzheimer's, I was having a rather rough 1st year of marriage and I wasn't performing all that well in my job. Put those all together and it made perfect sense. Anyways, hang in there. Things will get better. Just take it one step at a time. Self help books are a great tool to use too. I liked from Panic to Power by Lucinda Bassett.

Thanks for your feedback.

This seems to happen to me in the fall/winter.  Does stress mess with your seritonin levels?  I have had some stress lately with losing my job and having financial pressure, however those things didn't keep me up at night.  I have been afraid of insomnia for years now and when I do get it, usually after a stressful time, I get insomnia and then I am afraid I'll never sleep again.  I love to sleep and when I can't it really upsets me.

I am starting again on Klonopin...I was taking it this time last year for the same type of issue.  I am always scared of medication

I think you will be better off on the medications Wiley and prolly will sleep better with them
I agree with Normal could be S.A.D. ask your doc about this seriously

Wiley, I am sorry you are feeling so bad.  I understand what it's like to be scared of every little thing including medication, but you will probably feel better on them(meds).  I suffer from really bad insomnia too and have just discovered an over the counter medication called Panadol 15 which REALLY helps me sleep.  I don't take it every night, just once a week when I really need some ZZZ's.  I'm not sure where you are in the world but they should have something similar.  I hope you feel better soon.
