I feel like I'm dying

I was just laying in bed, very tired and I got in bed at like 8:30. I'm 15 years old so that is actually a huge feat for a teenager. So in bed, I've been worried about getting this brain thing N Floweri and that cold have caused this but, i was already worried about that, but not overly worried. I was somewhat relaxed, just watching basketball videos on my phone and I start getting pretty tired around 11. Turn my lights off. Turn my phone off. I like to listen to sports radio as I fall asleep so I put that on. I've been dealing with adrenaline rushes as I try to sleep since last summer, but I got this huge rush of. I don't know. It's hard to explain. All I can say is that it's a rush or a whoosh over my whole body and I jolt awake and I have to catch my breath. This worried me but it has happened before. I tried to go back to sleep but now every minute or so I'll get a "mini rush" of this adrenaline or whatever it is and my arms start having pins and needles In them. I am exhausted. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I've prayed and prayed but nothing seems to help. I'm worried about dying from this brain eating amoeba I think I got from using tap water in my neti pot. My life is so stressful. I've had a headache, not bad but a mild, on and off headache on the top of my head and my forehead. This worries me because it is also a symptom of the disease but I have no other symptoms. Like I said. My eyes are so tired. My body feels so tired. My mind needs rest. I just can't sleep. I don't know how many more days I go through like this. I constantly feel disconnected, not in my body(not like an OBE) but like I'm just going through the motions. I wake up and feel like I didn't even sleep. Like I was just up. It's very annoying and depressing . I've been seeing a therapist for 3 months or so. He's very helpful. Very understanding. I've learned some awesome tools to help deal with this awful condition and they help alittle. My parents are fully aware of this and they seem to not be worried. I'm not so much worried about myself. Just really sick of it. It's like I can feel myself floating away day by day. And I know it's not good to look at a phone screen when in bed but I can't sleep no matter how hard I try.

Please respond with helpful info. I'm just looking for some help or anything.

Oh I am sorry to hear, I remember as a kid I started feeling this way and my parents never seemed to understand. It's only because I got terrible attacks in my 30's that I now understand that it's GAD and Panic Disorder/health anxiety.

I used to call it "the death feeling" I remember one day being really worried about the fact that I ate a spoon ful of dry ready brek and though I might have blocked my insides up. Sounds funny now but I was in geuine terror, and now I get the 'adult' version everything is cancer, or imminant death.

The good news is that the sooner you treat it the less likely it is to come back, see if your parents can get you booked in with a therapist/CBT sessions.
