  9. Not sure I'm in the best place to post, forums can be confusing... I have suffered from severe, acute insomnia for the past six years or so. I have anxiety, depression, and am going through menopause. I have been on every OTC sleeping aid and prescription sleeping pill you can name. Have had a sleep study. Forget not being able to sleep for two or three nights...I can go a whole month only sleeping 1-2 hours a night, sometimes not at all. I believe insomnia can be fatal, because I've suffered some really scary health issues directly related to sleep deprivation. Your organs will literally start to shut down. Not to mention barely being able to hold a job, drive, etc. Not sure if we can post specific med info here, anyway, here it goes... Seroquel. That is the only thing that was able to put an end to my last 40-day odyssey of no sleep. I hate anti-psychotics, but it has been literally a lifesaver. And no, I don't think I'm bipolar. It's sleep deprivation that makes me anxious and manic. Just hope I can hang on to this wee bit of sanity for awhile...for as long as it works.
  10. I am a 4th year Psychology student. I am currently investigating the effects of insomnia in my final research project. This is a subject very close to me personally, as I have also suffered with severe sleep issues for many years. When I graduate I hope to continue in this area of research, and help ensure that the desperate need for further support for those with sleep issues is met. Due to the nature of the project, I am looking for volunteers who fit the following criteria: · Currently have issues sleeping, such as continued trouble falling asleep, or inability to stay asleep as long as desired · Between the ages of 18-65 · Lived in the UK for the last 3 years If these apply to you, and you have the time, it would be very much appreciated if you could participate in my online survey: https://hwsml.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_06a24fJGqg74LBj The survey itself will take roughly 20 minutes. All responses remain entirely confidential as no personal information is required in order to take part. Please remember to select submit at the end. You will be redirected to an error page after completion, PLEASE IGNORE THIS, it is only for those taking part via university student participation. Thank you in advance for participating, and taking the time to read this post - any assistance you can provide is very much appreciated.
  11. I've read a lot on this site in an effort to calm myself, so I figured I'd finally come and ask for advice. I'm a seventeen year-old girl (turning eighteen in two months) and I've had a really horrific past two weeks. I was in the ER 15 days ago for a migraine and concerns as to what could have been causing it. After diagnosing it as a complex migraine, the doctor seeing me gave me Compazine through an IV (with Benadryl) - and it was the most traumatizing experience of my life. I had a violent adverse reaction; heart pain, burning around my heart, excessive shaking and sweating, fear of death, immense panic. I've always been a shy and socially anxious person and I've been diagnosed with severe depression, but this is the first time I've ever experienced anxiety/panic attacks and their severe symptoms. Six hours after being sent home from the hospital following my Compazine experience, I suffered a panic attack immense enough to give me bodily tetany and make my arms, hands, legs, mouth, and hands seize up. I got the pins and needles sensation alongside that and feared the worst. My mom called an ambulance because we had no idea that kind of attack could occur and they calmed me down over the course of an hour. In the days following that incident, I had at least one severe and several-hour-long anxiety/panic attack per day to the point of it being debilitating and preventing me from focusing. I have had two periods of three days without attacks followed by another severe attack (the most recent being last night, I had chest tightness and really violent tremors for six hours, only calmed down and slept after taking Benadryl). I have been to the emergency room twice more; they once gave me Visatril through a pill and I had another adverse reaction, and one morning, they gave me Xanax to calm me down. To date, it is the only medically administered drug that has ever worked for me in this situation. I am at my wit's end. I have seen my parents' doctor and she prescribed me Zoloft/Sertraline at 25mg. I have not taken it yet because I have been on a myriad of medicines in the past couple of weeks and anxiety has brought out the full force of their side effects; I am scared to take it for that reason and I don't want to. My main issue is health anxiety. I have always had a slightly higher than normal pulse, so fear of a heart problem is massive. My symptoms brought on from anxiety/panic attacks have gradually ranged from chest tightness, excessive chest heaviness, chest pain on either the right or left side, neck tightness, left shoulderblade pain, pins and needles, shortness of breath, mid-back pressure, ear and head pressure, jaw and ear pain, excessive heart palpitations, violent tremors, paranoia, dizziness, hot breath, heartburn, acid reflux, disorientation, excessive weakness, cold sweats, flashes of heat on random patches of skin, fatigue, and insomnia. All of these things combined have made me terrified of heart trouble that could kill me. I've had two EKGs and a chest x-ray in my emergency room visits, and everything checked out normally, but I still am largely incapable of convincing myself that everything listed above is solely anxiety and not from a serious physical condition. Everyone on my dad's side suffers from a form of generalized anxiety, but I've never felt the side effects of it like I do now and I would do anything for it to stop. As a side note, I do take other medications (Loestrin, Curcumin, Benadryl, 5-htp, Magnesium) off and on for various reasons. The latter four are largely took for insomnia/anxiety related issues. I'm a night owl and it's impossible for me to go to bed before midnight. Is there any advice or help that can be offered to me in this situation? I want it to be over, and I don't know what to do with myself. I constantly fear something is wrong with me/that I am dying and I want it to end.
  12. Hi! Had problems with my sleep for years,whether it was sleep walking or just trouble falling asleep. Tried everything, going to the doctors, subscription sleeping/anti-anxiety pills, therapy, alcohol, etc... my friend keep saying that its all in my head and that I am just making it up, but it all started in my childhood and nobody was able to help me so far. I know that the sleeping pills would sort everything out, but only in the short term. Has anyone come across that before? Any advice? Any advice/experience stories would be awesome x
  13. Hello, Finally I found a place to write down my problem without being judged from family. All started once I found my first serious job. I finished Computer Science in college, and I found a job in a big firm as a developer last year. In the second month I developed insomnia. One day no sleep, 2 days, 3 days and so one. 2 years later now, and still I m worrying about sleep. Left my previous job and went to another one as an intern with very little money, hoping that this situation will comfort my mind and make me feel as " I don't have so much to do"... Not any different at all. Now, my symptoms are... It takes me 2 hours to fall asleep, then I wake up after 3 hours exactly and it takes me another 3-4 hours to sleep again... after a while I have to go work.... And I was going like this !! And in the weekends I was fine... Today is Saturday and I couldn't sleep for more than 3 hours... Thoughts are racing my mind and I cant take them away...!! What I did till now about this problem: Went to 4 different psychologists, Noone helped me. Went to psychiatrist.--> gave me Zanax its addictive I didnt try it. Tried over a million times to kick away the bad thoughts. NOTHING WORKS FOR ME, I m desperate I think I should kill myself. I dont have life, I cant function normally.. This week I ll quit my job... Anyone feeling like me?? Anyone had severe insomnia? Please give me any suggestion..
  14. Hiya Guys, I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate place to post this but I struggled to "file" my issue. Two nights ago I had recurrent dreams where I imagined that I was having panic attacks. Normally my "episodes" are not what I would consider a panic attack because although I'm anxious and have embarrassing physical reactions I'm not actually scared?!?! However in my dreams I am terrified I have woken myself and my partner and couple of times screaming in my sleep. The issue is I'm worried that I'm actually having panic attacks in my sleep and prior to this I would occasionally wake up mid anxiety episode. So I'm now worried that if my anxiety can be this intense when I'm asleep that the level of intensity and fear I'm experiencing may also begin to manifest in real life. I've agreed a sleep strategy with my partner that I'll ask him if I'm okay or what he thinks is wrong with me and if.I can make him say sausages I'll know I'm dreaming because I'm struggling to establish the difference between dreams and real life especially when I'm tired,. If I ask him in real life there's a specific reply he will give to assure me I'm awake. I'm not sure this plan will work but it gives me hope. I'm just wondering if any of you have experienced panic dreams and whether you just dream them, or they have an effect on your physical body and also whether you experience any signs before your episodes intensify? I'm mostly confused and worried (go figure!) so sorry if this sounds a bit scattered. Stephanie
  15. Hello, my name is Caroline. I'm new to both this website, and panic attacks. I haven't really been diagnosed or anything, but my father and mother have had panic attacks before, and my symptoms match up. I was even hospitalized not too long ago. (About a day or so ago. My days feel so mixed up now.) They prescribed me some medication for these panic attacks as well. I had my first one about a week ago, after smoking marijuana. After that terrible day, I have had non stop panic attacks. It felt so weird.. I felt as though I could not control my body. I felt like I lost control. The first thing I said to my mother was I am dying, and that sensation of dying has left me completely terrified of when I actually am dying. I now have an intense fear of death. I couldn't breathe, I felt like I was being choked. I could feel my blood pumping through my body, as my arms and legs began to get numb. There is a strong pain in my chest, mixed with a burning. I start crying, hyperventilating.. but what I loathe even more than the actual panic attack itself, is thinking all day about when I am getting it again.. It doesn't hinder me going outside and enjoying life, as of now. I am afraid that it might get worse later.. It does hinder my sleep though, I always wake up scared. Scared of what exactly? I honestly couldn't tell anyone. I don't have insomnia, but I might get it soon. I don't think I can sleep without my mother rubbing my back, telling me all will be alright. Today is one of those nights where she wasn't rubbing my back, which explains why I am still wide eyed at about 6 am. I always been a very stress filled person, and I suffered depression for quite some time now. I am going to go out on a limb and assume that maybe these all correlate with each other. I could be incorrect though. I may not be having a panic attack at this very moment, but I did just wake up from one of my night terrors again. I only managed to get only an hour of sleep. I don't know if this is normal, if this is something anyone else feels. This inability to sleep. I guess someone could say I am slightly questioning my reality. All feels unreal. It feels like I am in a constant dream, and will wake up laughing at this whole thing. It's felt like this for years now.. It would be nice to associate with someone, anyone, singular or plural, who also deals with this. It would definitely calm my nerves, when no one else is around to help me. I don't have many friends anymore, so making some new ones who will help me with this new condition will surely make me a very happy girl. Bless you all so much, and thank you.
  16. Hi, I'm new, and new to forums in general. I have nearly no friends, just people online. I'd like people to catch up with, commiserate with, support and be supported by.. Introductions are kind of awkward for me. I have two cats, a rabbit, and I live with my boyfriend (we dated just out of high school for 2 years, stayed in contact all these years, and decided to try it again). I'm 28 years old, and unemployed. I quit my 5+ year job in January, to move state (TX to GA) to live with my boyfriend. I was making very morbid plans before he came back into my life. I hope to be accepted here
  17. For the last couple of months I've had gradually worsening insomnia, at first it was being caused by my upstairs neighbour who has wooden floorboards in her bedroom so whenever she walked around which she would do regularly from 5am she would wake me up. Now that's stopped but I am having worse and worse problems sleeping, both in getting to sleep but also in staying asleep. It's got so bad now that I barely sleep throughout the night and I find it harder and harder to function at work. I have done all the things people advise you to do re sleep hygiene, I don't drink much alcohol, one cup of tea in the morning and the sleep aids which used to work like nytol etc no longer work at all. I'm starting to feel terrified because I know insomnia can be one of the early symptoms of vCJD and can also be a sign of fatal familial insomnia. Does anyone have any experience of really bad insomnia and if so how long did yours last and what helped?
  18. I've been on almost every medicine, and visited multiple psychologists. Actually, I know a lot about OCD now, except how to cure my own situation! ( Actually, there is no cure, you just have to deal with it in some way that suits you. ) I'm a musician, and actually kind of popular, or at least I used to be, before I quit drinking ( great! ) and my alcoholic friends abandoned me. ( wtf? ) I'm naturally antisocial, but have learned to pretend to be social in public! The problem is, I can't admit my OCD, hoarding or other symptoms to my friends, ( I've tried, it just scares people away. This is a cruel world. ) which means that I only have a few close friends and family, and a girlfriend who has her own issues, probably causing us to break up soon. In truth, I am very lonely, depressed, and you might notice, somewhat bitter about it, and I can't admit it, because nobody wants to hear it. But I can tell you people, in the middle of the night, because we don't know eachother IRL! Please offer suggestions, and I'll try to do the same for you. -Rockstar Steve
