Anxiety



So, recently, I've been having some trouble sleeping. It's like I'm afraid to fall asleep for fear of waking in panic or not waking at all :( even when I'm so exhausted I could sleep on the floor, I go lay down ready for bed and I just can't fall asleep. I've been having more intense and frequent PAC's and I've had about two anxiety attacks in the past week. (I had been doing good, like maybe one every 2 weeks). I awoke just recently in a panic. I felt lightheaded, weak, dizzy, out of breath, and like my heart was struggling to beat and thumping hard. I feel just helpless. I tried breathing exercises and drinking cold water and that seemed to help but now I am worried, because all of a sudden my PAC's are more intense and happening more frequently and I' m also having trouble sleeping. Wondering if I should make a trio to my general physician. I was feeling fine before, until I started having trouble sleeping. It's so exhausting being an excessive worrier. And I can't help it either. All I think about is being a mom to my son. I don't want anything to happen to me for sake of Cameron. I don't want him to be without a mommy and i don't know why I have to experience all of this at such a young age. I am trying SO hard to overcome and adapt to this without medications and ibolan to keep it that way. If anybody has any suggestions or input or any positive thoughts at all, please help! I just need to talk :(

I too have the same problems. I wake up all the time with panic attacks and heart racing. My resting heart is always fast.  Cardiologist tell me I have Sinus Tach, Pvcs, Pacs, PAT my resting Hr is always like 120, 140. My body is like in Panic mode 24/7 because fast heart rate. you know that fight/flight your adrenal glands produce. Im SOB everyday almost all day. You talk about a living hell. I have been to 3 cardiologist, neurologist, E.N.T primary docs. Im so burnt on this happening to me also. I have been dealing with this for 6 months. I too just want live a normal life. I have been to ER 10 times so sick of getting probed and poked. My poor veins dont want no more needles lol it *****. I had to have a Pacemaker put in 5/17/12 because Bradycardia when I sleep. I had a B 1 defiency that when on for who knows how long. mine was depleted no one knows why. That left me with Neuropathy like symptoms. so yeah like I said its been so horrible for me and my family but im not giving up yet. It really upsets me about the SOB I walk like 30 feet hearts pounding so fast I feel faint. Feel like an old smoker. But I dont drink or do anything in that nature. I hope the best for you and your family. I too am pretty young 29 yrs old. Just keep praying for the better. If you would ever like to message me feel free. Makes me feel so much better knowing that theres other peeps out there going through weird stuff also. Take care Thomas
