ok i've started having panic attacks here recently. i wake up every morning before daylight with racing thoughts and pouding heart, and feeling very nausea's. i cant go back to sleep and after i'm up for alittle while it subsides. my digestive system is in distress,so nausea's,nervous,with some"D" and i just dont know how to pull out of this. i've tried paxil,zoloft,prozac none has helped me. i go to the dr. today to find another med that will help me. so my question is has anyone else experienced all the symptoms that i have explained. And what meds. have you gotten to work for you?

Is it your UC acting up due to stress hun I know my crohns goes into a flare when all Hades breaks out I was just wondering
I take the occasionl fast acting med like ativan to help me thru the stress and angst I get when I am so stressed out it wakes me like you are waking
I do hope your doc will help you out with something that is fast acting
Make sure to ask and then make sure you are also doing plenty of self help to get you threw all of this
It is the only way I have been able to continue battling the DD and with the support here
You take care

I know I'm going to sound stupid, but what's UC?

Hi, I was suffering horribly from panic attacks and anxiety. I recently started taking zoloft and I have a huge difference. I know you said this didn't work for you though

Pamela, the mornings have been difficult for me recently. As soon as I open my eyes my heart races which causes anxiety. I work on it every morning. I use positive self talk. I either do biofeedback or make myself get up. My fear brings it on every morning. I'm sure the whole cycle will stop someday.

Try to go ahead in the mornings and start your day. If you have any meds, take them. Remind yourself that these feelings are harmless and will pass. I hope you feel better soon!

Jeff1969, why are you losing hope? Losing hope is not an option. Begin doing all the things that are necessary to relieve your stress/depression. What are you doing on a daily basis to help your anxiety?

Jeff I would suggest you make your own separate post. Your post will get lost in this one as it is two years old.
