Basically, I just turned 18. On July 16th.
And on my birthday I had what I believe to be four anxiety attacks in a row.
Before that, I've only had one once in my life and that was from smoking weed which I stopped doing after that. And that was like a year ago.
What happened during those four attacks: I got really light headed and that freaked me out. So my heart started racing. Then my vision starts fading. So I freak out more. Then I just go into a panic and start crying and I can't stop it. And I don't even know what provoked it. I was just going out to dinner with my family like any normal day. I don't suffer from depression. I live a pretty happy life. But since I've had those four attacks, I have been depressed. And now I always feel like another attack is coming. But I also have been feeling really pumped and shaky. Like I feel like I need to go run five miles. Even though Im the opposite of fit. I'd never run in my life.
But today I really noticed how I felt pumped up extremely. So I start running around my house. And that eases my mind and distracts me from the attacks I feel are coming. But as soon as I stop running I feel like my body is overwhelmed with tons of energy again. So when I'm burning tons of energy off I feel like I'm normal. But when I just try to lay down or relax I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack because this extra energy overwhelms me. I don't understand that though. Because all my life I've been so lazy. Exercise and movement is the las thing id ever want to do. But now as soon as I think I have anxiety all I want to do is move. Is this anxiety related?View Thread
I don't feel off balance but my head definitely doesn't feel normal. Like I feel like I have head aches but not as painful. I just get this pressure on the same part of my brain constantly. I take these head ache pills when it happens. But I think it's just a placebo. Because when I still think about that pressure my head gets I start to feel it again. When I take the pills it just makes me stop thinking about it as much.View Thread
