Hello, My name is Michael. Almost everyone in my family has nerve problems. Most of them are smokers and take berve medication to get through the day. I am 22 and started having anxiety when I was 16. I never had a major health concern and I was a normal teenage boy. One night I was drinking a energy drink at like 2 am forcing myself to stay awake to play the new NBA 2k10 basketball game that came out. Well I started feeling funny. My chest had a some pain and there was burning all over my body. I freaked out and had the ambulance at my house in no time. They checked me out and told me I was having a caffeine rush. They didnt give me medicine to calm me down because they didnt know how my body would react with me being tired with caffeine jolting through me. I had a miserable time trying to sleep. Everytime I went to sleep I would get a shock feeling and I would suddenly wake up. The next day I felt sick. I couldnt eat or anything. I went to the doctor and we told him what happened the night before. He said that I could have messed up my heart and I freaked because I loved playing sports and ai didnt want to have heart problems being 16. He done an EKG and took blood. A couple days later we got a call and I had H- Pylori, which is a stomach bacteria. I had to take medicine for 14 days. Every since that night I have had anxiety. All it took was one good scare to trigger it and now it wont go away. I dont want to be put on medication, but it seems like I have no choice. I have the shaky and trembling legs when I try to sleep. I also get the jolt and shocking feeling. I get a scared sensation. I feel like I am si king i my bed. I dont have many symptoms throughout the day and usually if ai do they arent to noticeable, but at night they are miserable. I honestly got to the point to where I hate the night because of my anxiety. Sleeping is supposed to be peaceful but its a nightmare for me
