I know that alcohol consumption can make anxiety worse. I drank A LOT last night. But so far today my heart is racing, my vision is blurry, I'm super dizzy,my stomach is upset, my chest hurts, and the very center of my upper back hurts.
I'm also a self-proclamined hypocondriac/cybercondriac. I had 5 panic attacks from the time I woke up until now because I think there is something wrong with my aorta or because I have a pulmonary embolism. I can't stop crying. Today is also the 1 year anniversary of my grandfather's death. I just want to die.
Could these symptoms be present because of the mix of alcohol and anxiety? Could it JUST be a hangover (I've never felt this way after I've drank before)? Could I still be drunk?
This exact thing used to happen to me all of the time! I would drink and had the same exact symptoms as you do! It has to be anxiety because I have severe anxiety and so do you and it happend to the both of us. I've had severe anxiety for almost a year now and it's slowly getting better...what physical anxiety symptoms do you have when you do not drink? Anxiety has ruined my life for the past year. But I have faith that I will get better. And you'll get better too :)
This happened to me. I drank a lot last night and woke up with the worst anxiety ever. And all day ive been dizzy/sore/really nausious. Plus the added weight of it being the aniversary of your grandfathers death Im pretty sure its because of the mix of alchohol and anxiety. Just get a good nights sleep tonight and hopefully you will wake up in the morning feeling better
I go through the same thing. After many years of not really looking after myself, I have finally realized I have to give up drinking and cigarettes for good if I really want to beat anxiety and depression. I hope you feel better soon.
Godddd same thing happened to me, in October when everything kicked off with my drink getting spiked and I had severe anxiety and depression, i drank everyday/night for a month...I'd wake up and drink more cause I felt a panic attack come on...drinking myself into an oblivion would stop it...HOWEVER in November I realised that this wasn't the best way of dealing with it...now when i drink the day after I really have to deal with it, by napping/relaxing, drinking lots of water. but I know ITS HORRIBLE!!! Your anxiety after you drink goes up by x100 and obviously the anniversary of your grandads death (God knows what emotions you must be going through) and the amount you drink you drank, course it'll add up. Try not to worry, it's just annoying our hangovers are 10 x worse then everyone elses!!!
unfortunaltey for all of us who love a drink every now and then alcohol will indeed make your anxiety 100x worse, i had a good few drinks last night and woke up at 4am having a full blown panic attack thinking i was losing my mind as usual...sigh i think its going to have to come down to either booze or having anxiety :(
