Angest,
 
I don't have any real explanation for this either, I just know that it happens to me too.  I've had a pretty calm couple of months, and then on Friday morning while lying in bed, completely happy, I started having these tiny bursts of panic again.  It came so completely out of the blue for me, that it really threw me for a bit.  In my case, I think it was just the memory of how bad mornings used to be creeping up on me again.  Memories of other bad panic attacks or tough spans of time can really do a person with anxiety in.  I try to just keep in mind that it is only memory and there's no reason to be afraid of a memory!  It usually helps to keep me more calm, though doesn't necessarily take the panic away.  Hope things get better for you!

Symptoms wax and wane with all of these conditions. It is the nature of the illness, which is why it is so important to learn techniques to help yourself through the rough patches. Medication helps, but it is never a total cure.

Hello, I am currently in a panic/anxiety group and my psychologist just explained that one of the weird things about anxiety is that it usually takes place after a stressfull period. She said it is a very common thing to have anxiety/panic during the evening while you are sitting there watching t.v, which is really weird, but for some reason it really hits way after the actual stressfull period. Also the chemicals responsible for anxiety can be "floating" around our systems also. I dont know it does seem really weird, I am learning some interesting things though!

I get the same way! I can be fine..relaxed, confortable. laughing, and then all of a sudden WHAM..I will get anxiety symptoms. I find that mine are usually the worse at the end of the month. Then I will be fine for say..2 weeks and think..wow I am actually feeling pretty well for a change and then it will just hit me out of the blue. I dont know why that happens. I think the reason for this is it is just not under control. As much as medicines may help, it is still a battle going on everyday in our minds and sometimes I think the anxiety just has an upper hand on that particular day/days.

I noticed you mentioned dizziness. I get that ALL the time...sometimes worse..sometimes bearable...but it is always there. Do you get like an off balance feeling? Sort of like a buzz feeling??? I get all the symptoms you get. The palpitations you are talking about..are those a feeling as though your heart is doing flip flops in your chest?? Like a 'fluttering'??? I have been getting those off and on all day long for weeks now. My dr. gave me Zoloft but I HATE taking medicines..How does it make you feel? Any side effects?? The problem with me is...I am scared to take the med. sad And I hear you on the weekends. I mostly spend my time in bed as well, because I feel so crummy.

God bless!
