I have been having severe anxiety for about 2 days now. I have only slept 6 hours in the past 2 days. It got so bad at around 1 am on Sunday that my voice trembled, I was shaking, sweating, and I couldn't sit still. I have been like this ever since. My heart feels like it is going to beat right out of my chest and I'm breathing fast. I called my Psychiatrist office Sunday morning knowing they were closed but thought someone might be on call. NOPE, no luck. I then called my primary care doctors office and the same thing happened. The urgent care I have to go to is closed on Sundays and I didn't think I was severe enough to go to the Emergency Room and wait for who knows how many hours. Plus I couldn't handle that stress. I have been trying to focus on my breathing, listening to music, talking to loved ones, hot water, and even smoking cigs. Nothing is working. If I don't feel better when the doctors office opens I feel I should call and ask for some meds. I take 20 mg of Lexapro everyday but I have never been given anything for when I am in the middle of a severe attack. Do you guys think she will be able to help me? What kind of meds would they give to help me through this? Has anybody gone through something like this and what did you try or what meds were you given to help? Did they help? Thank you so much in advance for any information you can give me. I feel trapped in my own body right now and need relief.
