Addiction Recovery :: Panic Attack After 120 Clean Days (opiates)

Dec 29, 2015

I don't know what happened. I have been doing great the last 2 weeks, and then all of a sudden this morning was bad. I woke up in a panic attack. I really want to know what is going on. I am still seeing a counselor, doctor, and going to na meetings. Being over 120 days clean, would this still be some sort of PAWS. I am still struggling with how all this started while i was using. I don't really feel depressed, but this anxiety does make me feel down. Can you have anxiety this deep into withdrawal. Again, i used normal opiates for over 2 years, and switched to loperamide the last year. The lope was about 20 to 30 a day. A big part of me still thinks that after even 12000 dollars of testing, the doctors have still missed something. Is all this still normal? I mean I felt great the last 2 weeks, and then all of a sudden. Please respond anyone who has experience with this. I really think it's something else. I am scared of something not seen. I know this is a contrast from last post, but what is going on. I am trying to not take any of the xanax they gave me, but today i had to take 2 of the smallest doses.

Panic Attack :: Symptoms Lasting Days After Attack

No one seems to be taking me seriously and I didn't know where else to turn to so I decided to go here. I'm 24 years old and have been dealing with anxiety and depression since I was young. It got worse while living at home during high school and has gotten unbearable up until this point. I was on a short vacation about a week ago (4 days). During my whole trip I suffered from a migraine and it felt as if I couldn't breathe, no matter how hard I tried it felt like someone was suffocating me. It's been about a week now and my migraine seems to be gone but the other day when I got back I was out for dinner with a friend and I felt a strange nauseous wave wash over me and I had to go the bathroom because I thought I was going to be sick. I ended up going home and then going to the pharmacy to pick up my medicine for my migraine because I thought it had passed. When I was standing at the counter I suddenly couldn't breathe at all! I was so scared and started hyperventilating and acted completely hysterical. The pharmacists tried to calm me down and said it was nothing but I insisted there was something wrong with me. They were afraid I had an allergic reaction to something but it felt different so they called a taxi for me to get me to the hospital. While at the hospital the nurses gave me two antihistamines and some sort of drug to calm me down. They explained to me that they couldn't see anything blocking my throat and that all my vitals were fine. They said I had a panic attack or it was anxiety which means it's all in my head?!? I don't understand. Was this a panic attack or anxiety? I felt like a fool for crying in front of these nurses thinking I was going to die. I have never experienced this sort of thing before, (except for anaphylactic shock which feels completely different by the way). Can someone please help me, it's been about two days after I had my episode and I still have difficulty breathing and my throat and mouth feel so dry yet sticky! My throat is starting to hurt and throb, I'm starting to freak myself out! Eating doesn't seem to help and I'm getting scared again. Can this happen and if so how did any of you deal with this?

Anxiety :: Panic Attack Or Heart Attack?

So I started freaking out real bad around 6:50 PM, I couldn't breathe and I started panicking my heart started racing and there's weird pains radiating from my shoulders to my chest, the pain isn't super bad, and it's fleeting, but I'm scared because it's now 8:37 PM and i'm still having breathing trouble, chest pain and the weird hot and stiff feeling. Am I going to die? I don't want to call the ambulance again because I was hospitalized on the 12th for a bad panic attack, I was given more ativan and sent home, I was a-ok for the remainder. I also got a prescription for 0.25 milligrams of Xanax, but have yet to get it. I'm just scared about my breathing and pain and tingling mixed with weird head symptoms. I feel like the heart attack is coming..

It's been 21 days since my fears of rabies symptoms showing. No surefire sore throat, headache, vomiting or anything, but neck and pains.. I haven't felt achy and fluish.

Anxiety :: Constant Panic Attack Feeling But No Panic?

I used to suffer from panic attacks but don't really get them no more (only after alcohol)... 3 nights ago I did drink (a lot) and I had the classic panic symptoms but not the actual attack... The reason why I didn't have the actual attack was (I think) I took a friend's anxiety pills (propranolol) I had 1 x 10 mg two days ago and 1x10mg yesterday I havnt took one today because they haven't helped me at all... now I'm just stuck with (what I can describe) just the build up to a panic attack but no panic... I feel I have butterflies constantly in my stomach from worry but I don't know what I am worried about... I feel like this feeling will never go and that there is nothing that can help me has anybody ever experienced this? Also I am aware (now) of the dangers of taking unprescribed drugs I only did this because I felt this was my only option. I only took two pills I should be ok to stop taking the propranolol right?

Panic Attack? Possible To Get Breathless With Anxiety?

Back again with something different this time.

So on Tuesday I went and had reflexology and she told me there was something about my left lung and where my gall bladder is.

Well I have asthma so I thought that would be the reason she says she could feel something around my left lung, but I seem to get a bit breathless so now I am worried that there is something wrong, is it possible to get breathless with anxiety?

I also now have a pain where my gallbladder was (I had it out 20 years ago) do you think I have anything to worry about

Anxiety :: Panic Attack On Plane During Flying

Two weeks ago I was on a plane on the way back from our holiday when I had what I now realise was a panic attack lasting 3/4 hours. As soon as I got on the plane I felt like I was going to faint and spent the whole flight trying not to pass out. I have flown many times and am not scared. A couple of days later I went into a shop and nearly passed out, I wasn't anxious beforehand at all. Over the next 2 weeks every time I go into a building such as a shop or dentist etc I panic and feel the need to get out. I'm so scared of this feeling, I've never had it before although I have always struggled with depression. I took prednisolone whilst away for a skin condition and wondered if this may have contributed? How can I suddenly become like this or is it the same for most people, fine one minute, then it just happens

Panic Attack In Public Area Or Cafeteria

So im wondering if these symptoms are that of a panic attack or maybe something worse... whenever I'm in public such as school or in a cafeteria I get really nervous. Just recently I was in a hospital cafeteria because of a family problem so I'm in the cafeteria by myself and I sit at a random table and suddenly I start to feel a rush of panic or adrenalin but I can't move I'm kinda just stuck there and when I try to turn my head or bend down to my purse I just can't. It hurts and feels like I'll pass out if im doing that or I'll pass out if I start walking away. I don't get sweaty and my heartbeat goes up a little but not like it's a heart attack. It's more of a weird muscle feeling almost like twitching and tensing? I don't know how to really describe it. It's happened a bunch of times where if im at school and people are behind me I kinda freeze and my muscles don't move and they make me feel shaky.

Anxiety :: Panic Attack? After Argument With Friend

Last night I had an argument with my best friend I was crying during it but suddenly my whole body gave out and I found myself curled up on the floor rocking with my thumbs stuffed in my ears uncontrollably crying and screaming, nothing anyone did could make me stop and I started hyperventilating and eventually the police arrived, I think because the neighbours heard me screaming.

I have been suffering depression for a little while but I've never had this before, I've been crying a lot lately but never in front of people and I was always in control, last night feel like I couldn't stop even if I wanted and I've never screamed like that..

The experience has really freaked me out and I feel really embarrassed because all my friends were there. And I can't stop going over and over it, the fact the neighbours heard someone "screaming in pain", and my friends must have thought I went insane, I can't look at anyone and I just want to never leave my room again, I couldn't go to my lecture. Today I've had to have headphones in all day playing really loud music and I don't understand why.. It's like me putting my fingers in my ears, all I know is that if I don't I feel horrible, stuck if I don't.

Panic Attack? Dizzy And Kind Of Disoriented

Last night we very weird towards the end of the night I started getting very dizzy and kind of disoriented which started to scare me a little bit. Then I tired to go to sleep and for some reason I kept waking up really scared, thinking I'm dying, wanting to run to the hospital, everything felt like it was closing in on me, hot and kind of freaking out. I would be extremely dizzy and felt like I couldn't see straight. Still kind of feeling that way now because I didn't get much sleep maybe. My head started hurting and it was all very weird. This morning I'm the same way and when I try to go back to sleep my stomach gets upset and won't let me. I'm also very stuffed up my nose is horrible. I feel like I'm going crazy

Panic Attack? Shaky And Fainting During Shower

This morning I got up to take a shower and as I was taking my clothes off I felt really tired and I had to sit down for a few minutes. After that I returned to my bathroom to take a shower. As I was showering I felt fine until I got out. As I got out of the shower I started feeling sick. I felt like I was going to faint and vomit. I put clothes on quickly and I just wanted to leave my bathroom. It's currently Summer and it's hot everywhere. I felt liked I was trapped. I didn't know what to do. I quickly left my bathroom and I sat in a chair near the kitchen and I wanted to cry but I couldn't. I felt so sick and dizzy. I started to find breathing hard. I closed my eyes and tried to focus on my breathing because I was breathing hard but it didn't really help. Then I did it a second time and it worked. I started to calm down and I felt a lot better. I was a bit shaky for a few minutes but now I'm fine. I'm at home by myself and it was in the morning.

I was just wondering is this a panic attack or something else? I've never had a panic attack before and I don't know what else it could be.
