Hi - seems we sahre not only a name, but the same kind of symptoms too
My anxious feelings usually only last about 20 min or so, if they continue, I usually take a xanax - my full blown panic attaks have like you lasted for an hour or so, sometimes even after taking a xanax, I will have to take another..
Seems like same with my chest hurting and nausea as you too -
Maybe they put these articles together to make us "feel" better, cuz they obviously never experienced a full blown attack like some of us has..
Sorry, hating the world today, tired of having this disorder
take care & glad to see ya here..
btw also have cyclothymic disorder ( close to BP I)
have a nice day - I'm trying
Hi there Dawn! Thanks for the reply. I too get so sick and tired and fed up with dealing with all these symptoms all the time. It just makes me feel so irritable, restless and hopeless at times. And I HATE feeling that way! I used to take .25 Xanax three times a day, and to be honest, I never really felt that much relief. Now the doc wants me on Klonopin?? I filled the prescription but am too afraid to take it. I DETEST medicine. I dont know why...I just hate to take anything.
Does your anxiety seem to be worse at certain times of the day??? Mine is usually bad in the mornings and at night...for the most part, during the day I can deal with it better than I can at those other times.
Nice to meet you !! God bless!
