Does anyone else here get panick attacks..or anxiety attacks? Ive always have had them since I was a kid and take medicine to help control them when I start getting them often.I use to be able to talk myself out of one but the last couple years I cant. Lately I have only been getting them at night when I lay down in bed and start thinking about stuff.
I used to. Mine came along with IBS and endometriosis. I got severely sick from everything combined. Long story there though. I had surgery for the endo, didn't help much, so my ob/gyn prescribed pain and anxiety meds and an injection to help prevent the endometrial growth. The injections stops my cycle and helps me immensely since my periods are really like a curse.
The anxiety meds were killing me. I enjoyed not having panic attacks, but I was prescribed 4 a day and even a year and a half later, I couldn't take more than one! He assured me I needed four, so the first 2 days, I took the 4 a day and didn't even get out of bed for 5 days! It was awful. I could not move. It was almost like I was a zombie and all that mattered was resting.
So I went down to taking either a half or one before bed. It'd make me crazy. I'd feel high and then get the munchies and then pass out for several hours. If I slept 4 hours, I'd wake up fine. If I got woken up during those 4 hours, I wouldn't remember a thing sometimes. My sisters use to stop by around the morning hours while I was sleeping it off and there were tons of times where I never remembered seeing them! Or I'd remember them telling me something important or big news and suddenly remember that either they really did say it or I was dreaming. I couldn't keep up with anything.
So somewhere around 6-9 months ago, I quit taking them all together because I'd been eating my aloe vera plant and it totally stopped my anxiety dead in its tracks. You know, I had one attack while on the meds and a few very minor ones. Ever since I started eating aloe, I've not had anything that could even resemble the beginnings of an attack. Stuff's amazing!
