Re: I Need Some Advice Please!!
Nice to meet you and glad to see you posting.
Those tremors? I think the most logical way to acertain whether they are essential tremors or tremors from alcohol use is to stop the drinking and see if they eventually stop.
In all kindness, the tremors are of less importance than the amount of alcohol you are consuming daily. It does not matter if it is beer, Jack Daniels or wine. It is alcohol... and too much of it on a really regular basis. While you may not be taking any prescibed meds after that panic attack and subsequent depression, you are, without a doubt, self-medicating. Alcohol, like any benzo ( ie: Xanax, Ativan) that is prescibed for anxiety is a depressant and a calmer on the surface. Misuse of alcohol, like benzos, will eventaully cause depression. Both mask physical symptoms initially and then cause their own set of symptoms. Both work on the body and ultimately affect the brain.
I believe that counseling through either a 12 step program like AA or private therapy is needed to find the true underlying cause of the depression. behind every single person who abuses drugs or alcohol lies unresolved issues. Find the source of conflict in ourselves, face them, deal with them, and we find the way to a restored life without the self-medicating.
I wish you well and hope that you will come back and share more.
