I started with severe anxiety about 2 weeks ago... Been having like 3 panic attacks/week... I don't know what to do...
is this ur first time? actually i have anxiety disorder ;( every day 24/7 um anxious cant close my eyes without xanax . took zoloft 1.5 yrs back now again taking it. dont knw will it work 2nd time :( everyday is a torture for me:'(
I have always had anxiety and depression. It's hard during pregnancy too with all the hormones. I refuse to take anything though because of my child.
did u take any medication bfr pregnancy
I suffer from panic disorder. Some days are good, and some days suck! I don't know about you, but I get a lot of physical symptoms with my anxiety like dizziness, feeling like I can't breathe.
I've been getting physical symptoms... Dizzy, can't breathe, shaking, nausea, overheating... I try to stay calm and get through it but sometimes I just feel like I'm going to pass out... I would get them very rarely before I got pregnant, but now it's so much worse... Just today I had one so bad I was considering going to the hospital... And now I get anxiety about getting anxiety...
What do you ladies do to help? I'm not at the point where I want to take medication. I'm 30 weeks and I want to be able to get through.
I'm 39 weeks and so far what helps me the most is church, church family, and praying. I don't want back on meds even after my son is born. They never helped anyways so I don't want to go back to something that doesn't work.
yes i also have the same plus more like burning feeling over my body. cant breath if i sit or lie. i used zoloft before and i had huge success but this time i donno will it work or not. how do u sleep with anxiety? do u take anything for sleeping?
Mine seems to be triggered by my breathing, that is, unless I have one while I'm asleep (which has been happening). I have asthma and this pregnancy is exacerbating the symptoms. As soon as I even think I'm having breathing problems, the panic sets in.
I've been trying to distract myself. I put a movie on while laying in bed, and watched it until I couldn't keep my eyes open. That seemed to work tonight. I'm going to try the radio now.
If I let sleep creep up on me I can get some Zzzz's... Otherwise it gives me too much time to think and obsess.
which medicine u took before?
