I don't even know where to start, i have had anxiety for 2 years now and today has been the worst. Yesterday night i was out and i had way to much to drink, this morning my anxiety was just off the walls, i felt very very nrevous and jittery, i got soo nervous that i thought i had nervous breakdown, i don't know if i did,  it felt like everything was caving and i thought 100 percent i was going insane, my mind right now feels shattered, it feels like i should mental hostpital right now, im pretty scared, im 20 i have a good job, renting a great place things are going not too bad, but after this morning i'm a wreck, if whatever happend to me this morning ever happend again i really don't know what to do, i really don't, i can't explain where i put my mind into, words just can't desribe it. I feel depressed now, very mind altering, if there's anyone at all who has had this frightning experience please tell me what i should do, im not suicidal so you don't have to worry buif i get into that un discribable state of mind i just don't know what to do its just .....holy crap......frightning. I have a feeling that alcohol may have done this too me because i had wayy to much yesterday, if yes then i simply will just stop drinking.
Please anyone out there just give me some positives or something that can put my mind at ease......
thank you

I've seen a number of posts on this forum similar to yours: people are freaking out with hangovers. My advice is not to worry...it'll pass. Just repeat that over and over again: "this is temporary; I drank too much and this will pass". You'll be okay.

Yeah, you should probably stop drinking, or at least do it in moderation. And if your on meds for your anxiety (I assume you're not), you have to be especially careful. I LOVE to drink but I haven't had very much at all in the last three years or so.

But you're not alone on this. Again, we've seen posts remarkably similar to yours before. It's the alcohol. You're not going nuts.

Well, I posted a response to you before debaser's but it didn't go through due to servor error.  I don't like to follow debaser's responses because they're always better than mine.  He sucks  :-)

Well, what I was saying was that, I think there is something in the air this weekend because I have been feeling unusually anxious too.  I didn't drink as much as you but did have a couple of drinks with dinner last night.  Sapporo and hot sake with sushi, mmmm...

I don't advocate heavy drinking because it is bad for your health.  However, I do drink moderately.  I found that if I drink a lot of juice, orange, apple whatever, before I go to sleep after a night of drinking, I tend to feel a bit better in the morning.  You replenish your body with the nutrients that was lost.  I also heard that if you do heavy excercise, you'll sweat out all the toxins from the alcohol and you will feel better.  Finally, if you care, alcohol damages DNA.  DNA is responsible for the normal replication of cells.  However, if you take a multi-vitamin with at least 600 mgs of Folic Acid, it will help.  Folic Acid has been known to repair DNA.

Anyway, hope that helps and I hope you feel better.

Oh hun.. its definitley the alcohol making it worse. Ive drank one too many ..too many times and the next day pay for it with anxiety and panic. In fact..ive payed for it all day today. Be very careful tho If you are on meds, like debaser said. It will pass. My hangovers/alcohol induced anxiety usually last me the entire next day. Sometimes even on the second day I am not 100%. Just try to avoid drinking. I knwo its fun, but the few hours of laughs and good times isnt worth the entire day of freaking out. Good luck to you.

PLEASE do not mix alcohol and anxiety ( especially IF you are on meds for A/P )
It is not a great combo and can and will cause many problems now and in your future

YES it is as simple as that ......

Having a glass of wine occassionally wont hurt you but the way outta control drinking will IMHO
