davidmcquire8, I confirm what you were feeling. I had that happen many times years ago. It is frightening. Over time, once you realize and really believe that it's anxiety caused, it looses it's power over you and never comes back. Stay strong.. Keep using the forum for support.

Please look for the book DARE The New Way to Stop Anxiety and Panic

You can get it as a Kindle download.

I am reading it and it is so true, he addresses everything to do with anxiety and panic in a simple way to understand

It is anxiety most likely. Anxiety does awful things to our bodies and minds. It tricks us and scares us.

Believe me you are not alone and I am in a rough spot right now as well. Talking helps and doing something that distracts your mind will help.

I highly suggest a Dr visit to calm your mind.

yeah i will thanks

I have those feelings a lot too. A lot of issues just like you just described. Read the Bible, the book of Romans will help with the fear of dying however changing your diet will help as well. Eat more natural foods and stay away from any processed foods. Also stay away from caffeine although it is good for you and good for your heart it will stimulate your nerves especially if you are sensitive to it or have become more sensitive.

Yes, Johnnie1234, another highly graphic description of another symptom of anxiety disorder caused by over sensitisation of your nervous system. But still no mention of a recovery plan, what self-help initiatives you've been up to and what therapies you're getting to grips with. You can if you wish continue with the A to Z list of anxiety disorder indefinitely but you must see it's not going to do one iota for your recovery. So maybe your next post will give us some positive news if possible please, how you plan to extricate yourself from what must be a nightmare as untold tens of thousands have done. This is tough love I'm giving you, Johnnie.

thats what saying i think my nervous system its in the edge like all types of sympthoms its crazy twitch sometimes aswell its like my cant be calm.

Reply

I am sitting here getting shaky and I have pains but I am telling myself it is my anxiety and it won't hurt me.

Plus I haven't slept well and am low on food so it is probably low blood sugar as well.

You know when I am not in this heightened state of Panic I KNOW it is lack of sleep and low blood sugar, but because of where I am right now I am trying to blow it up into something it isn't.

I wish I had a Magic Wand, Johnnie, and one wave of it would cure you of all the bad feelings and all our other friends of there's and even me of mine, why not? But the latest news from the Magic Wand Development Team at Hogswart University is that work on the Mark One model is not going to plan so we are firced back onto the same old time-proven remedies such as the book DARE that Suz65 suggested a few posts back or my own favourite 'Self help with your nerves' by Claire Weekes both available from Amazon as audible books you can listen to so I believe. If I remember rightly, Johnnie, you've had all the tests and the result that came back was the Big A so unless all those radiographers and haemotologists have been at the industrial alcohol again that's the verdict to stick with, the one to do something about. Just more tough love, Johnnie.

I get the thud and when my anxiety is high it's like a knee jerk, fight or flight, jump out of my chair response! Lol When my anxiety is low I'm like...oh, there's the thud. I've been through a lot of tests with my heart due to pregnancy induced heart issues (I only have a few palpitations daily when not pregnant) and I've been told it's normal.... just the heart getting back to rythm after an extra beat. I don't get any pain, short of breath, etc. Yes it can make my anxiety way worse!

Johnnie, if it were anything more serious, it would not go away. The scary thing about anxiety is because it goes on and on. Playing with your mind. That's why it needs to be stopped through medication, therapy or acceptance..

I did Johnnie and it was very scary not knowing why my heart was going crazy for what seemed like no reason. I'd feel faint, I'd begin to sweat, shake/tremble, get lightheaded. I'd take to bed for fear it was the end. After it was over, I'd wait for the next time it might happen and so there was never a time that I wasn't in fear.

After multiple doctors checking me, ER visits, Cardiologists, Neurologists etc. I had to accept their diagnosis that it was Anxiety.

I wanted to mention that I too would get weird heart sensations whenever I would bend over and pick something up. An over sensitized heart can beat erratically whenever there is a change in position. And yet all this is not harmful. Good Luck at the doctors this coming week. Let us know the outcome.

As many times as it takes Johnnie. One day your anxious mind will believe what the doctors and people say. Right now absorb the advice like a sponge. One day it will all make sense. Hope that day is soon for you.

You're fine. No need to go to the hospital. Just breathe and try to relax. It's anxiety my friend. Drink cold water and lay an ice pack on your neck. You're just fine.

Okay johnny. We have heard the same thing over and over and over and over and over again. When are you going to do something to help yourself. All these wonderful people spending their precious time offering you advice over and over and over and over again and you IGNORE ALL OF IT. Claire weekes "help for your nerves" READ IT , Barry McDonagh DARE- READ IT. Medications- TAKE THEM. Exercise - DO SOME. You are making ZERO progress and i sometimes wonder if you read any of the responses to your posts - certainly doesn't seem like it.

Hi johnnie1234

I hope you are feeling better now , I know when that happens to me and my hearts pounding and speeding up that I am having palpitations because of my anxiety - nothing anyone says to me makes things easier- but I got some good advice and it's an old remedy Before Tranquilisers were used and that's " take a brown paper bag and put it like you are going to blow it up - except Blow in and suck out ... slowly and continually till your anxiety passes - honestly it works for me and I hippie you give it a try . Take care . Elle

Hi Johnnie1234! Sorry I got this so late. I have what you have. It's called premature ventricular contractions. It's harmless, but there's a medication called atenelol (in the US, anyway) that stops them. I've been taking the medication for years and it really helps. Just remember that it's harmless, just annoying.

Making yourself cough is one way to stop it. I know how scary it feels, but it's totally not dangerous.

my best to you!

what is that exactly if you dont mind me asking ?

the heart beats bah-boom,bah-boom. When you have premature ventricular contractions, your heart beats . . .-boomBAH and thuds, right? It's hard to explain. That big thump is the heart catching up and fixing it. As I said, it's harmless. I've had it for 20 years and I'm fine! I don't even notice it unless I don't have my pills.

It's the feeling you get when you nearly have a really bad accident in your car

A massive squirt of adrenaline shoots into your blood stream ...called the fight or flight reflex

Sometimes especially when you are stressed or anxious you get a ' whoosh ' for no reason at all

It can trigger a full on panic attack ...

Which is basically when you panic cos you know you are definitely about to die

so you Panic more so you get more anxious which stresses you more ...

and on and on..... Its dreadful

You have to slow your breathing down and shout at yourself

"nobody EVER Died of a panic attack "

You have to persuade yourself that you are not going to die

Even when your brain says you might ...

It's a vicious nasty thing Relaxation techniques really do help. X
