Never have had anxiety and I feel helpless

Hello my name is frank and I have never had an anxiety attack. Until a day after drinking heavy one night very little sleep and went to an amusement park the next day. I ended up have an anxiety attack that led me to the hospital. They gave me some drug to calm me down but said nothing was wrong with me. I thought it my heart or an organ failing. But nothing was wrong I was so shocked. They sent me home after having me stay for a while. After that day I have not felt right. i have anxiety constantly and I worry that there is something wrong with me. after a few weeks i start to feel myself again. But last night i drank and when i woke up i felt the same way again. I don't know much about anxiety other than thats what the hospital diagnosis me with. Will this always happen to me? Is drinking my trigger? If so that is sad because its something I have done after long weeks. If anyone can guide me it would be very helpful. I Don't want to keep feeling like this.

alcohol can always be a trigger, that and caffeine normally are not good for people who are sufferers from anxiety. Personally caffeine and alcohol calm me down rather than triggering attacks but it all works differently for everyone. In your case I believe that the best thing to do would be to steer clear from alcohol for a while and take things easy. If you ever feel like you're about to have an attack again, take a couple of steps back, try sitting down if you are able to and take deep breaths. When you close your eyes focus on the color that you are seeing, if you see variations of red, orange and yellow then that means your brain is being overworked. Keep that deep breathing going until you find yourself seeing shades of blue or green. I hope this helps out! Keep us updated. Best of luck to you luv xx.
