  • Does anyone else get anxiety over your heart beat

    Ok so since I have had panic attacks and GAD from age 15 I have always had a very fast resting heart rate between 120-140 due to the anxiety. So when I take my Clonazepam it slows it down to the probably normal speed it should be at but I start to get panic attacks thinking that my heart is going to stop and I make myself cough I'll jump out of bed or stand up quickly to give myself a jolt to make my heart beat faster haha sonds weird I'm sure but I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar or just feedback to this. I have gone to my doc and had my heart and BP checked my doc sys I'm just an anxious person. Anyway yeah
  • I feel like I'm going crazy. Help!

    The past few days I have been feeling terrible. I don't know how much longer I can take it. This is going to sound weird but I keep having scary, uncontrollable thoughts that I am going insane or I'm possessed. I can't sleep at night because I keep getting sensations of being startled awake. My anxiety is making me feel physically ill. My heart has been palpitating constantly, I just took my pulse and it's 96 bpm sitting down. My chest feels heavy. This is not the first time I have experienced this. I am afraid I might end up in the emergency room or mental hospital. I don't know if it's a panic attack or side effect from my meds ( I take sertraline Zoloft and Abilify). Has anyone else here experienced this? How do I make it go away? Please help.
  • I'm Exausted! I don't know what to do. Can you help me?

    I have recently started college in a new town where I don't know anyone, I love the college and the friends I have made are lovely. I am not a shy person (although I have my moments). Anyway, I haven't been into college for two weeks now, I'm waking up with morning sickness, throwing up, and tightness in my chest and throat and a crazy heartbeat.. On a normal day I can feel my heart beat and have a tight chest and have waves of sickness throughout the day. My diet is good, At night I sleep like a log (And for ages, like 12 hours is normal.) I'm quite a fearful person, I don't think I have extreme OCD, but I'm very particular about things, so its possible. I am also very claustrophobic to the point where being hugged or being in a building i feel i cant leave feels like I'm suffocating. I am currently having acupuncture, and just finished some hypnotherapy which I'm not convinced has worked. I know nothing about anxiety and how to cure or deal with it, or how to know what the problem it is, Can i be tested? shall I try Therapy? i don't know, I don't really want to start taking pills, but I need to move on with my life and this is really holding me back! Please help if you can.
