panic attacks

hi, I have suffered with panic attacks from the age of 13 years old (now 28 years) I have previously been on anti depressants. however since July 2014 I have come off all tablets and been able to manage my attacks really well until now..... 3 weeks ago I had a miscarriage we were trying for 12 months before we caught so we are really disappointed to find out I was having a miscarriage. I was only 6 weeks gone so it was at a really early stage but I feel like I am missing a part of me. is that silly? for the last 2/3 weeks I have been suffering with panic attacks having palpitations for most of the day, headaches, feeling dizzy and sick. I feel ashamed to tell people even my husband because I know its all in my head but I cant help it, I just want to get my life back on track anyone have any advice?

  • Hello Hannah, first I'd like to say I'm deeply sorry for you both. Losing your baby at whatever stage is heartbreaking for you. I'm not surprised your anxiety has returned. I do think it may help to talk to a professional about it!! Don't leave it too long to do it otherwise your anxiety will escalate and may get out of daughter lost a baby in the early stages and it was her first pregnancy and I know how it made her feel.dont ever feel ashamed to tell those close to you, they will understand and support you Hannah. The sooner you share it with them especially your husband you can start to deal with it it out in the open. I'm always around if you need me x

  • Thank you for your reply. You are right I need to let all out in order to move on, one day I am happy and feel myself, the next day it could be I wake up with the realisation of what has happened and I cant stop crying when I am alone and having panic attacks, headaches and dizziness. thank you again for you support x

  • That's ok Hannah, first thing on a morning is a bad time for everyone suffering from anxiety and trauma. As you rightly said, you wake up to suddenly realise it wasn't a dream!! It's really happened or happening in your life right now. It's better to cry and just release those feelings. It will take time I know that. Use the support you have around you. So many people have none. Take care xx
