Anxiety can really be scary and confusing especially when you experience for the first time.  Furthermore, smoking pot can really magnify any underlying anxiety issues as you are finding out...going down that road is never a good idea especially when you are so young.

Have you had anxiety issues in the past?  The good thing is that you can and will get better with a little understanding of this....keep us posted and feel free to ask as many questions as you like.

I was diagnosed with anxiety 3 months ago and it was from smoking weed...I had a panic attack and ended up in the ER... The physical symptoms are scary I experience heart palpitations, shortness of breath, paresthesias, and sometimes even derealization...One thing I have to remind myself of each time is that their just sensations they can't harm you especially if you have ruled out anything physical...

Hope ya feel better

my anxiety started from doing drugs...i had two severe panic attacks which caused my anxiety...im 19 and i started smoking pot when i was 16 and i smoked pot for two years..and did ecstasy for a year..trust me on this, drugs make your anxiety worse..if i didnt do drugs i wouldn't be here writing this post..well as long as i stopped and didnt do further damage to my brain *ecstasy* and mental health its all good..just dont do what i did..and dont worry you are 14..dont think about it and try to think of some other stuff the feeling will go away

Stop smoking pot you are only 14. Do it if you want to live healthy and normal life. I used to drink when I was 14 and I think that had influence on my anxiety!!!!!! I suffer 10 years already and believe me you don't want to be in my shoes. go to the doctor!!!!!!!!!!

I remember a few times when I smoked weed and felt like I was bout to die!  I too almost called 911..   It was because I smoked way too much.. I felt weird for like 4 days after that!  lol..  don't worry, it'll go away.. when u smoke too much like that,  that anxiety can happen..  

I have anxiety from coming off of vicodin for 3 years.. It's only day 8 of nothing but the anxiety seems to still be there everyday.. does anyone have any experience with opiate withdrawal and how long the mild anxiety and uneasiness should last if you stay off of it?

hi i'm 15 and ive experienced the same thing with pot i smoked some about 3 months ago and my anxiety grew increasingly worse i had to call 911 because i thought i was having a stroke i suffered from major depressive disorder right after i smoked and i was on prozac and xanax i quit the prozac because i thought it was causing my memory loss but i didn't realize that it was the xanax. I just wanted to let you know that your not alone and dont smoke again trust me its not worth it.

I had to the same thing 2 days ago. I was shaking and my heart was racing so fast I felt so horrible, like i was going to die. I smoked purple kush and I was so scared and i was crying and I felt i needed to go to the hospital. Don't smoke weed again, honestly. I kept saying to my self, "just try smoking weed again, it will be fine." But it wasn't. I have pretty bad anxiety and was a hardcore drug user for 2 years and then anxiety happened. And Katherann, I'm a sixteen year old girl who just started getting anxiety 4 months ago. If you need to talk to me about anything, your welcome to do so.

Did you ever get a cool prickly feeling on parts of your body because of the anxiety

1362589_tn?1279123940

Isn't it scary, I still haven't convinced myself that Im not dying. I also get this feeling like someone cracked an egg on the top of my head. how about you. Seriously If im the only one Im going to freak out. The only reason I don't get a full blown panic attack every day is because I haven't died yet but  every time I feel it or one of those cold prickly feelings I tense up because im expecting the worse.

Well, your not the only one! Trust me, I get that feeling all the time. I get the cold prickly feelings on my legs. Where are yours? I don't get a egg cracking feeling but it feels like I get so much pressure in my head that if feels like my head is going to explode. And then I get see pictures in my head of my brains exploding everywhere. It *****. I'm sure i got over the feeling of dying when I'm not having anxiety. But when I'm having an attack I feel like I'm going to die. You just need to keep in your mind that your not going to die because all the times you were having those attacks you didn't die. I know how difficult it is to keep that in mind and I still have trouble KNOWING I wont die.

Do you get when your not really anxious or is it during a panic attack. I get mine out of no where and then I remember that this has happened before so i don't launch in to a panic attack.

Yeah I do get them out of nowhere.  I think it's beause anxiety is maybe a little subconscious it's weird

I used to smoke weed a lot and it always made me mildly anxious (don't ask why i still did it)
But one time I had a full blown panic attack, actually two, while I was high and quit smoking after that but the anxiety didn't settle down for a couple of months.

I think smoking brings out an underlying anxiety issue I don't think drugs "cause" an anxiety disorder... at least not weed.

Wow I've only started pot like back in march and only did it a few times...and then about 2 months ago I had the worste experience too! it was awful and its constant I used to be able to down vodka like nothing and ever since then I can't go near any of those type of things and waking up in the morning is like hell and I'm so scared to sleep...Idk how any one can deal with doing pot all the time it's crazy!. and I hate this feeling!...the only thing that seems to make me feel better is walking out side but Some times I feel like I'm going crazy!
