- Would this be considered an anxiety or panic attack?
- Q: Hello everyone. I’m 13 years old, nearly 14. For the past month or two, i have looked at life very differently. I think i may have had a couple anxiety attacks. One day, i was just about to go to bed, and i couldnt sleep because i feared a heart attack because i had a chest pain. ( which is compeltely ridiculous.) I went into my brothers room, and tried to just chill and watch tv. But i started feeling very fearful, I felt nautious, so i went into the bathroom. I thought i was going to throw up but i didnt. I just felt this fear just completely covering my brain, making my legs begin to twitch. My legs were uncontrollably shivering. For some reason i thought i was going insane or something. So i woke my parents up. After a little while, i began to just feel a little relieved. I was laying down, and every time i was about to fall asleep my legs would jump. This went on for about half an hour. But before this i was skateboarding for like 3 hours so idk if thats what caused it.
- A: One way of tackling panic attacks is to look at the way you talk to yourself, especially during times of stress and pressure.Panic attacks often begin or escalate when you tell yourself scary things, like “I feel light-headed . . . I’m about to faint!” or”I can’t breath properly…am i going to suffocate!!” or “I am going blind!”These are called “negative predictions” and they have a strong influence on the way your body feels. If you’re mentally predicting a disaster, your body’s alarm response goes off and panic attack kicks in.Remind yourself of these FACTS about panic attacks:-Panic attack CANNOT cause heart failure or a heart attack.-Panic attack CANNOT cause you to stop breathing.-Panic attack CANNOT cause you to faint.-Panic attack CANNOT cause you to go blind-Panic attack CANNOT cause you to lose control of yourself.During an attack, it is very common and quite natural to worry that your body can’t take what is happening.Assure yourself that your ok. Accept it!Panic attacks feeds on your fears and anxiety. If you didn’t fear the way you feel, then you would have no more panic attacks.Try this Free Panic Attack Report At http://nomorepanicattack.synthasite.com/
- Is this an anxiety attack?
- Q: Is it possible to have a 2 day long anxiety attack? That doesnt have any immediate noticable physical symptoms such as racing heart etc.I get these “attacks” where for anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 or 3 days I can do nothing but worry about dying.I am having health problems and am undergoing tests, but it looks like cancer, so I know its normal to worry about. But these things are really crippling, like I will just sit there for hours and tap my foot, which seems to help then maybe cry, then if I am lucky I can get myself to sleep for a couple hours. This goes on for days sometimes.Is this an anxiety attack? What can I do to stop them so it doesnt go on for 2 or 3 days?Also I have social and generalized anxiety disorder .. so I am prone to anxiety but this is just like anxiety x 10. I am not on medication for these though. I have never had a panic attack or an anxiety attack, apart from these which only started now I am sick.I dont have any heart symptoms, sorry if I confused you. Just severe anxiety 🙂
- A: You poor girl. Even you avatar looks sad which reflects how you are feeling. You mentioned that you suffer from a generalized anxiety order which is also called free floating anxiety which means there is nothing in particular that makes you feel anxious it just seems to be ever present which can make ones life most miserable. You mention you are having tests for health problems. Please don’t think the worse (ie cancer) until you have the full results and second opinions. I have just been through a similar situation with a friend who had severe health problems. She got herself in such a state of panic and anxiety she had to quit her job. She has found out now that her health problems weren’t as bad as she thought but she still suffers from anxiety and panic attacks so has been put on anti-depressants. I think maybe you would do yourself a favour if you went on some sort of medication even just for the short-term. See your doctor immediately. When you feel an attack coming on get out in the fresh air, pop some music in your ears and go for a very brisk walk for at least half an hour. This does help as it distracts you from thinking and in your case tapping your foot. Please seek help. You don’t have to feel this bad. Good luck!

I’ve managed to supress a few on my own when i know im about to have another ‘attack’ and also crying makes it a lot worse, because it happened to me when i was really scared. is this an anxiety attack?
- A: Depression symptoms can vary greatly because different people experience depression in different ways. A 25-year-old man/woman with depression may not have the same symptoms as a 70-year-old man/woman, for instance. For some people, depression symptoms are so severe that it’s obvious something isn’t right. Others may feel generally miserable or unhappy without really knowing why. It’s not known specifically what causes depression. As with many mental illnesses, it’s thought that a variety of biochemical, genetic and environmental factors may cause depression. It’s perfectly normal to occasionally feel sad or upset, or to be unhappy with situations in your life. But with depression, these feelings linger for weeks, months or even years. And these feelings also are much more intense than “just the blues” and can interfere with relationships, work and daily activities, and even your ability to eat and bathe. You have most of all symptoms of depression and anxiety disorder, you should seek medical help as soon as possible. Depression and anxiety usually doesn’t get better on its own, and it may even get worse if left untreated. Feelings of depression and anxiety can also lead to suicide.Untreated depression can have harmful effects on your physical health as well. Under stress, the body is less able to fight infection and diseases. If you have a primary care doctor, talk to him or her about your depression symptoms. Or seek help from a mental health provider. If you’re reluctant to seek treatment, try to work up the courage to confide in someone about your feelings, whether it’s a friend or loved one, a health care professional, a faith leader or someone else you trust. They can help you take the first steps to successful treatment of depression. Go to your family physician as a first step.Take care as always!
