Anxiety attack? O ♥ G 2 kids; Pride, Louisiana 10723 posts

So I've posted recently about my anxiety getting bad but after an episode this morning idk what to think. I went to bed at 3 this morning because I had gone out with my friend, and then out of the blue I wake up at 6 with this HORRIBLE panicky nervous feeling in my stomach. I tried to just lay there and breathe deeply so I could go back to sleep but that didn't work. So I just laid there with my mind racing with all these stupid stressful thoughts. And I'm also thinking why the f**k am I thinking about all this right now and why can't I go back to sleep?! Well I'm addition, I also got up 4 times with diarrhea and then ended up puking. I'm not sick, I feel fine other than the awful panicky feelings. I did drink last night but I ate a meal, drank some water, and took naproxen before going to sleep to avoid a hangover so I know the puking wasn't from drinking because I felt fine when I went to sleep. Well right after I puked I just started crying and I'm just sitting here because idk what to do. I feel exhausted and "speedy" at the same time and I still have that panicky feeling going on. I've never experienced this before so I don't know what it is or what to do. All I know is it's one of the worst feelings I've ever experienced. Can anyone shed light on why this is happening and what I should do?

Sounds like anxiety to me. Is there something troubling the crap out of you? Something you are going through, went through? Is there anyone you can talk to about it? Try yoga or something to center your thoughts.



Call a dr hun talk to them for sure.

Not anything major. It's minute things like that I need to buy new contacts, feeling guilty for spending money on myself last night (even though that's totally irrational, worrying about my kids (also irrational because they are fine and are with my mom), etc. Like obsessive thoughts about small things that I shouldn't even be spending time thinking about. It's hard because I KNOW it's irrational but I can't stop it.



I have a doctors appt with a gyno Tuesday and I was going to talk to him about it because I'm fairly sure this worsening anxiety is from my Depo shot since it is a side effect and I've read of others having the same issues from it. But I'm thinking I need to see a psychologist too. This is no way to live. I should be sleeping and enjoying the fact that this is my only day for who knows how long to get to sleep in.

Naproxen can mess with your stomach. That with alcohol could have made your stomach upset and then effect your anxiety. I get more anxious when I don't feel good. Sometimes I find white noise a good distraction. Try a white noise app on your phone or on YouTube. Or turn on the tv where you can barely hear it. If the light bothers you, you can adjust the tv settings. Or you can buy a white noise machine cheap in the baby section of target, Walmart, or toysrus.



Reading a book, take a shower... Trying to zone out with one of your senses. Just running your hands under water. A heat bean bag that you microwave that you can cuddle.

I suppose that could've caused me to throw up, but it's difficult to describe. When I was throwing up I still didn't feel "sick" at all, just extremely panicky which makes me nauseous. It's weird because it just happened out of the blue. I had anxiety just sitting at my desk at work on Friday. I had absolutely no reason to be anxious, it just came on all of a sudden, and I felt nauseous then too but didn't puke. I suppose the alcohol and naproxen on my stomach could've just made the nausea from the anxiety more pronounced this time though.



I'm feeling a little better now that I'm distracting myself on my phone but I still have that feeling in my stomach. Blah this sucks.

I know EXACTLY how you feel. Have you tried visual meditation, google it you'll get some good literature. Do you think you have any repressed memories that cause this? Or something new in your life? Talk to a therapist.

Just a lot of new things at once in the past six months. A new baby, moving, surgery, new job, going to school, got engaged, moved into a new house....mostly great things but still a lot of stress with two children under age 4, full time job, and school.

When I had postpartum depression with my son it also caused me to have severe anxiety. Do you think you could have PPD?

I'm not really depressed. Or at least I don't think so. But I suppose the anxiety could be from that if that is what causes others to have severe anxiety. It's been three hours and i still cannot calm down long enough to even visualize something calming. And I'm getting nauseated again. My stomach feels like someone is tying knots tighter and tighter.



I need a f**king Xanax. Lol

f**king tell me about it, I've been trying to get a Xanax script since I left the ER on thursday. If it gets so bad def go to the ER and explain whats going on. They will give you anti-anxiety meds and set you up with a psychiatrist.

I have horrible anxiety and have had it for years.. Definitely talk to a doctor about therapy and meds and go from there.. Just as a side note, naproxen makes me puke.. it's apparently a common side effect, maybe thats what that was from
