Hello there, i am new to this posting on forums ect but i am looking for some advise or help. The thing is it all happend about 2 months ago all of a sudden did not feel right in my self and the next night having a panic attack and also the following felt like i was going to die went to the hospital who then did a ecg and came back clear they tested my electrodes in my blood (fine) and also did a urine test (fine). i then went too see the gp who did a few more tests and did a diabetic test anda thyroid test (fine) i then had a chest xray and came back fine. the gp then put me on proponolol 40mg for anxiety. i have been feeling alot better but still keep getting this very strange feeling. it is like a rush from my stomach to my throat i get a lump in my throat for about 1 sec and feel a slightly dizzy feeling makes me feel sick for the seconds its there and then makes me panic i dont know if its a side effect from the pills or just pure anxiety. see the thing is i am only 21 years old and have no stress in my life. i just get very worried about my self and can feel the anxiety kick in after i get this feeling it can happen like 0 times in the day or like 10 times in a row it dose seem to happen more when at nite resting or on the computer. i have been offerd couniling by the doctor but did not want to take it.

Hello and welcome!

What you describe sounds a lot like panic attacks to me. The rush that you describe is most likely adrenaline, followed by a feeling of fear, which releases more adrenaline, and continues a cycle...which is why you say you can experience it many times in a row.

Anxiety and attacks can come out of nowhere...and often you are not even aware of feeling stressed. Stress is accumulative, and we often deal and get used to a certain amount as more and more is piled on, yet we feel normal. My first attack happened when I was not feeling stressed, and in fact I thought that I was just getting decked with a sudden onset of the flu.

Since you have had all of your medical tests come back as being healthy (yeah!) it is now probably a good time to concentrate on treating the anxiety.

It is good that you are feeling better with the help of your Rx...but a med can only help so much. Is there a reason why you do not want to do the therapy? An offer of referral is quite a good thing, and one that I would urge you to think about!

I have been relieved of my daily panic attacks due to therapy and the support that I have found here.:) It could be the best investment that you could make for yourself...and one that you may want to take advantage of.

Either way, keep posting here with us. It is great talking with others who understand, and we are here to listen and care.

Talk to you soon,

I must agree with SC. what you are experiencing sounds very much like what my panic attacks feel like.

There is a difference from the adrenaline you feel when you are excited as compared to the adrenaline you feel when your fight or flight response kicks it. Further, with the UFC, I imagine you probably had a fight instinct :-), here you are more likely experiencing a flight instinct.

I know I am not a doctor, but it does really sound like anxiety. I really hope that you find comfort and peace. Do remember that it can be a long road, but it will end in success.

Did your doctor say why she wants to make a change in your meds? Did she mention some of your symptoms being possible side effects of the Proponolol?

Either way, I would go ahead and take the advice of your doctor and see how things work out.

It is frustrating that the symptoms can either be from the anxiety itself, or the medication. Side effects should lessen after the initial break in period however, so time will tell.

Great job on making the decision on going to therapy. It is one that I am sure you will not regret!

Between the medication and the therapy, I am sure that you are going to be seeing improvement soon.

Hang in there and keep posting.:)

just been down my local emergency doctors as i spoke to someone about my issues and they told me to come down. he did alot of checks on me uriane ect and said it seems like acid reflux in my belly and that could also be the chest pain im getting i feel like a darn hypocondriact always down the doctors. but i shall book and apointment with my own g.p tmoz and have a word with her about it as i have not changed the meds yet and think it might be time to go along with it anything to help get rid of this now its just so darn depresing. when i describe it, it sounds like typical anxiety circle and im stuck in it feeling pains the panic they get worse as i panic so i panic more ect ect. any good videos ect any one knows about to try and help with the anxiety as the therpy is a 4 month waiting period.

thanks alot scaredy cat

How did your appointment with your GP go? I hope well...and maybe you got something for your acid reflux? It does seem to go hand in hand with anxiety sometimes.

We have some great stuff in our Resource Guide (main page, 1st post) to help you out until you can get to your therapy. Also I will give you some links for book recommendations on the subject of health anxiety that might help you.

I am glad that you are checking out well at the doctor's. Have you had a chance to check out any reading material on anxiety management...or try some of the self-help techniques such as breathing and/or progressive muscle relaxation?

It could be really helpful to get a jump start on the therapy waiting period...there is a lot you can do from home.:)

I hope that you continue to feel better.

I am glad that your test came back as normal!:) That is good news. I am also glad to hear that you will be pursuing therapy to help manage the anxiety.

The fact that you had a good reprieve is a good sign. As you get better, you will most likely have longer stretched of feeling well...and hopefully shorter periods of anxiety/symptoms.:)

Keep us updated on that last test (but I bet it too will be good)

Thanks for the update, and I am glad that your tests came out well...and that there is some improvement.:)

Try to continue with the postivity and doing the things that help you to feel relief from the anxiety. With self-help and persistence it should start to improve until you can start the therapy.

I too hope that you have a good Christmas, and continue to feel better every day.

Keep posting!

That is great news that you are exploring self-help and seeking therapy!!

I am so glad to hear this and know that you will get results from both.:)

Also glad that you had a good holiday...I did too.:)

Keep us updated on your progress, okay?

p.s. you may be able to get some self-help books on C.D., and you can also get some good DVD's on anxiety management if that would be easier for you than books.
