Hi all into my second week now on patches, which give me an awful sore red rash that swells up and stays that way for a couple of days, just been putting antihistamine cream on it. Anyway had a bad anxiety attack last night in bed was nearly asleep when my chest started to feel funny like i couldnt breathe i tried to relax and sleep then i thought i couldnt breathe like my throat was closing up. Every time i started to drift off to sleep i woke with a jolt thinking i couldnt breathe. got to sleep eventually. But woke up feeling very teary for no reason still feel anxious and my chest feels strange cant explain it really.Im sitting here crying now! Dont know why. Its not really to do with smoking as i havent missed it and feel better for not smoking. Maybe its just my hormones. Why do i feel so anxious thou havent felt like this before. Has anyone else been feeling like this. my irrational fear last night was that cause the patches are making my skin swell up so bad im thinking that my throat feels like its closing up as if im having an allergic reaction from the patches! How silly now im duboious about wearing one but i cant not as i will smoke and patches the only thing that works. Sorry to waffle but needed to get it all out. Julie xxx
