Anxiety?

I have had a very rough childhood growing up, I'm 15 years old and last year I felt really weird. I didn't know what it was I thought I was dying, it eventually went away after a few weeks. Like 4 months ago it came back. Harder. I felt so weird didn't know where I was felt disconnected everything was so scary, I was dizzy tired j couldn't get out of bed. I was on vacation from school and was so scared to go back feeling like this. When I finally went to school my heart didn't race bad or anything but I still felt very strange. And to this day I look things up constantly thinking I have everything in the book I get headaches last week it felt like I was not able to breathe because I had flem in my throat. Then j found out about depersonalization I thought it was that because j have smoked weed and had a panic attack, it now feels permanent. But I kind of just started living my normal life feeling like this pushing it to the side, but now what's bothering me is that my stomach feels at a discomfort, I hate being sick. Absolutely hate it and I see on Facebook that a lot of people are getting sick, I just feel like I'm going to get sick all the time. I looked stuff up about schizo and that scared me so bad I keep thinking I have everything! Help I need to know what this is. I went to the doctor he said he thinks it has to do with anxiety, OCD, but that's when I wasn't having headaches or stomach discomfort, I'm so stressed out please help me

You said you smoked weed? What exactly happened after you smoked?  In the last 3 months I've experienced pretty much everything you have .  I smoked in January and had a really bad panic attack where I felt I lost control of my body.  2 weeks after the incident I had my second panic attack which led to me thinking like crazy about if have all these medical illnesses and ultimately been having constant anxiety and developed ocd from that. I'll never touch weed again and I suggest you never do either.  You will feel better again , it just takes time. It wouldn't be a bad idea maybe to look into medication for a temporary thing to help. If you're against medication then I'd suggest excercising and eating healthier foods. Just don't smoke weed again it's not worth it.

Thank you south for responding. So first what happend was I smoked weed with my friends and had a panic attack, I instantly tried to go to sleep, when I woke up. I felt fine. About a week later I was going somewhere and had a panic attack and ever since then I could not get out of bed I was so tired thought I was dying I was dizzy scared. I didn't know what to do. Everyday I wake up I ask myself if I real why me what did I do I deserve this. I just want my life back. It didn't help that my girlfriends cousin died and it made me feel like I was going to die because she was also 15. I feel so disconnected , it's so hard to get through daily life every pain or ache I get I pay so close attention to and research it. And trust me I will never ever smoke weed again!

When did this all start for you? The first panic attack? Thank god I came across your post because your story is exactly the same as mine. I use to cry every other day asking God why me , I never did anything to deserve this. I was so angry with my friends for pressuring me to smoke. But What your suffering from is anxiety induced by the weed. Eventually over time it will get better but it takes time and effort on your part. Don't let it diabitlitate you in anyway. Your young you should enjoy your youth. Anxiety is fear that doesn't exist so nothing will kill you. You are healthy .  It wouldn't be a bad idea to exercise and eat healthy. Especially if you don't want to go the route of medication. Whenever I let go of the fears and do something with my friends I'll have moments where I feel completely normal again and it's gives me hope that things will become the same again. Stay positive. Your not alone

I smokers and had a panic attack and then a week later I felt really strange and started panicking. Do you ever have head pain in the back of ur head and aches in ur legs/arms, things on ur body go numb easily, stomach pain??? Also when I exercise it gets worse sometimes? That also could be because depersonalization is a tired mindset and exercising makes u more tired which could cause it to get worse maybe??? I don't know all I do is think think think because nothing looks real anymore. Do  u feel strange and does everything look and feel unreal 24/7 like me?

That use to happen for me but I snapped out of it. It was the scariest thing ever.  I also use to get the random numbing in my body and strange head pressure feelings. I went to the emergency like 30 times for all these symptoms . They gave me anti-anxiety meds. Eventually for me the symptoms got slightly better but I still have anxiety. I suggest you go to your primary doctor and just be honest and tell him everything thing that happened. You won't feel like this forever but do go reach out for some help

Be honest though, do you think it's anxiety?

You mentioned a ruff childhood and you've felt like you were dying. Why did you feel like you were dying? Generalized anxiety after smoking and experiencing what you did can induce anxiety symptoms to where you feel you're in a state of fear everyday. Googling your symptoms when you are scared, afraid, and in search of answers will only make things worse. You will end up self-diagnosing over and over. Trust me, I've snorted crystal meth and felt like I was in a dream state for over a year. Im finally better. My advice, talk with your doctor to maybe get you on Xanax so you're not having panic attacks and to help relieve your anxiety and talk with them about what's going on. You're going to be fine. Other people have experienced these same feelings and you're not alone buddy!

You've experienced the same symptoms? Did you take an anti-depressant or an anti-anxiety medication ?  How long did it take you to feel normal? I know eventually I'll go back to normal but I just need some reassurance,
