Im on my period and my anxiety is crazy. I experienced the most intense derealization ever today when i went to the mall to pick up my check. It honestly felt like a giant hallucination and afterwards I felt sick and slept for maybe 4 hours. Ive been having crazy dreams every. single. night. for about a month now. And every time I wake up from them Im sore and my heart is pounding. Its like i cant get any rest. I feel really really bad and discouraged right now. Im so afraid something bad is happening to me healthwise or the anxiety is getting worse;/changing into something else.

It sounds like anxiety.it makes you so tired. Have you had any tests done to rule out anything else?

The lack of sleep psychologically and physically can lead to some nasty experiences. An increase in anxiety is definitely going to happen. I'm sorry it's a tough time for you...take deep deep breaths prior to sleeping if you can, not only does it work for anxiety it can also calm you prior to sleeping. No-one warns of the nasties that accompany anxiety do they? The beating so loud you fear your heart will jump out of your chest, the impending doom feeling. All these are part of what we know as anxiety. Take care.

I probably asked you this already but are you on any medications?

Yeah I'm on Prozac and Imipramine and Xanax but they don't really help.
