So I have had a pretty good month without having bad anxiety... Just little things that I can get through unless I fixate on them... But today it hit me. I was fine all day... As soon as I start driving home it starts. Now, here's my question... Could this happen do to lack of sleep? I haven't slept well the past two nights... And may be that contributes to my anxiety? Like a trigger? I mean I just wanted to run to the hospital, because I just didn't feel right... I ended up just crying on my boyfriends shoulder and saying how I just wanted to be normal.... I felt a little better afterwards, like crying was a release or something... But I go to lay down and my brain starts playing every worse case scenario, since my left arm is hurting again, but hasn't hurt in a month.. It's just throwing everything at me.. I believe in God and His power, so I was praying, because that is calming for me, and the thoughts try to get in there too... I just don't know why my brain does this to me.
So, lack of sleep triggers attacks?
