Hellpppppp...can anxiety be this bad?????

hey guys

so i feel i finally got rid of some major stressors in my life that may have been causing all my anxiety..yesterday i had a great day..no symptoms (at night time i had a minor anxiety attack)..but nothing major..

but today has been horrible..started with derealization followed by wierd feeling in head (faint, dizzy,feeling like passing out..random wierd sensation like if all blood drained from my head and filled up again which would get me even more anxious..im supppppper tired, my eyelids feel heavy..and the more im walking around or moving stuff the more derealization hits and my eyelids get heavier..

so im guessing anxiety doesnt leave that easily..and again i ask this question..can anxiety be this bad to cause these symptoms without actually feeling anxious about something..and also my heart rate is at 60-65 rate while experiencing these symtpoms....

i only had 5 hours of sleep prior..and took valerian root during day to help me calm down

Hey Ahuesca,

I just read your post. I have been going through the same symptoms you listed. Just went through and coming out of a panic attack right now actually. Terrifying. And to reassure you YES anxiety is this bad. It’s symptoms are terrible and every time I have an attack still I’m convinced it’s a major health issue. It is absolutely terrifying. You will be okay though!! We are all here for you

I have had most of those symptoms over the past 3years. It's definitely bad. I was so bad my hair was falling out and yes anxiety can cause that too. It's the most terrible thing ever. Panic attacks are just as bad. I have had 2 today 😥 I now say to myself it's anxiety and I'm going to be ok. I try to ride with the storm and hope it doesn't last to long. Stay string you will get through it X

I've been reading a site CBT4panic and that explains how making these life adjustments doesn't get rid of the panic. As your still afraid if it it will still come back. So a changing of a routine much be a comforting action. But you are still so afraid of what if it doesn't work and come back. I would recommend reading through the workbooks as they explain life style changes might be good but only addressing the panic itself will get rid of it rather than feeling you are protecting yourself from it.

Thanks for your reply..i thought since my anxiety was cause by major stress i went throiugh..my anxiety would just get better rapidly since i eliminated all my stressors finally..but i guess im left with the horrible new symptoms of anxiety now that i have to deal with-_-

Yeah I was the same and it was so frustrating I listen to radio 4 before bed and shower the night before than the anxiety will go 'I hope' then you wake up in the morning and think I hope it's not here again it is here again I am so angry and useless. It takes a long time to accept I am on that journey but once you start it is a good thing. It's probably good that you have identified stressful things in your life and have tried to remove them but that on it's own won't remove the anxiety. I do recommend cbt4panic it made more sense to me than anything else I have read and that's a lot!
