Anxiety ?

Ive had anxiety panic attacks for years and as some will know im a reg here. Ive been a bit better over past 2 yrs, but lately its creeping back again I think i know why...having a lot of stress from a very hurtful teen Daughter

Anyway whats this? is anyone familiar?...........

Usually it happens more if i go to bed on a full stomach but also it happens for no reason. I drop off to sleep and then i wake up suddenly not breathing !! or i have to gasp for a breath to get myself breathing again. It's horrible. Ive had sleep apnae tests which are fine, the Doc says i have some obstruction at back of my throat(he says caused by weight gain) thats only thing i can think may be causing this. But its so scary. Anyone else get this?

Re: Anxiety ?

Hi Worrybucket! I remember you from years ago! =) Sorry to hear your anxiety is coming back. Mine is, too. Do you have reflux?? I do and sometimes when I go to bed with a full belly, I will wake up struggling to breathe and coughing due to acid coming up.

Hope you are feeling better!

Re: Anxiety ?

Hi there,

Yes I'm back but not as bad as yrs ago. Your symptoms I describe are exactly what I get. I'm on and off the omerparazole but i think by not staying on it, its making my heartburn worse.

My heartburn is only because im overweight, i never suffer when im slimmer, infact i believe a lot of my ailments are weight related, but in my mind i just cant get into the frame of mind to lose it.

Anxiety with me comes along when i have stress in my life, i do at moment from child being really naughty and school probs. Hopefully i'll ride it and be ok again, but im not going back on prozac again, it was hard coming off it, but while i was on it i was in a better place emotionally, but thats just artificial isnt it?
