Help...its been a while

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted on here. I have been doing pretty good, but lately since Tuesday things have been rough. I caught an infection on my leg for picking on a pimple went to the ER got it lanced and on antibiotics...sounds pretty simple right. That's what I thought but ever since that experience I have been feeling off...heart palpitations, jittery, feel like my whole body is shaking and I want to cry over everything. I just want to be home and hide. This is not like me I dont know what's going on and I'm scared. I just had cardiac work up and all is good with the heart. I'm also very sleepy and I should mention that since christmas break Dec19th I have not been sleeping well at night, I think I get an average of 4 to 5 hours sleep or less daily. I always feel sleepy. Please tell me whats going on? Is this anxiety why??

Do you have a fever at all? The sleeping issue might be something you want to talk to your primary or your psych about especially since you have started picking your skin. *hugs* I hope you feel better soon. You likely feel tired because you need more sleep!

No fever and pimple thing is pretty much all resolved. I dont go to sleep early because I get caught up wanting to watch my tv shows or put laundry away or catch up on stuff at home or work since I have two little ones, I dont get much time for myself. What could be triggering this anxiety? Anyone else feels like crying a lot and jittery and palpitations when they are anxious? I feel like I'm in a constant state of anxiety.

Lack of sleep could be a huge factor in your anxiety.

Agree with Total Eclipse. I had a bad week of sleep last week.  I was having more heart palps, on edge, tired during the day, and wanted to cry.  I was waking up at 4, having only gone to bed at midnight, which is too late.  Stay away from screens and avoid engaging in any activities. Sleep is so important for anxiety sufferers.  I am still trying to get that through my stubborn head.
