Hi everyone! I haven't posted on here for awhile, but considering it seems like I only post when something goes wrong, I guess I should be thankful for that! Well here is my situation: The past week I have been experiencing what I can only describe as anxiety attacks. I all of a sudden get really bad chills & feel very anxious/panicky. My blood pressure spikes and my heart feels like its going to beat right out of my chest. Been losing lots of sleep & shedding lots of tears.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
I am getting married in May & my mom & sis are wondering if the planning and anticipation are stressing me out more than I think and causing these episodes. I cannot pinpoint what is causing it, which is what worries me the most I guess. I have always wanted a big wedding, but if that really is what is causing it, I don't want it to cause a flare and jeopardize my health over it. I'm beginning to wonder if we should just elope & be done with it? Or maybe there is another underlying problem?
Any suggestions, advice or experience are welcome!!
P.S. I went to primary doc yesterday & she gave me a sample of Lexapro. Only on my second dose, so not really sure how its gonna work. Slept better last nite, but woke up feeling really shakey inside, if that makes any sense.
Lots of Love!
