This is my first time ever on a forum and I am not too sure how it all works. I just know that I seriously need some support right now. I have battled severe anxiety/panic since I was 23 years old. I am now 34. Today is horrible for me. I would say I have mainly health anxiety. I mostly worry about something being wrong with my heart because it does such crazy things. I am one of those that checks my pulse. It seems like I have so much excess adrenaline in my body that even when I eat sometimes it sends me into a panic attack. I am just so sick of it all. I did pretty well for 6 years when I was on Paxil but I got off of that in 2006. I am now on Lexapro 10mg. and it doesn't help that much. I also had something pretty awful happen this past June and since then my anxiety and panic keeps getting worse. When I first started getting panic attacks at 23 I was in the ER weekly. Once I got on the paxil I felt back to normal for the most part. Just in the last month though I have seriously had moments like I did when I was 23 and I am so scared. Granted, I am going through alot right now, so I am sure that is part of it. But, I can't help but think that maybe something is wrong with my heart too. Today, I felt fine until after I ate lunch. I had a tuna sandwich and a few chips. My heart started beating hard and I just felt a surge of adrenaline. It didn't really start racing, but it just felt annoying and I started shaking really bad. I don't get it? I need some words of support today if anyone has them.
