Help is there something wrong with me!?

Hi I am a high school senior that is really scared about his health. Anyway I don't normally do drugs, except have occasionally used Adderall to help me study for finals. I have used it 2 times before and was fine both times except for a panic attack after getting no sleep. So two nights ago I was using Adderall both days with a total of 50mgs to finish my 15 page essay up. Today I woke up really exhausted and throughout the day my heart felt almost sore but not painful or alarming. I am extremely paranoid normally and think that I have every disease in the book so it is normal for me to feel things that I don't actually have just cause of my paranoia, so I blew it off as nothing. However, later in the day I started to feel what I thought were papilations and I would constantly feel my heart to see if I had irregular heartbeat. My heartbeat did seem uneven, which again I am not sure if it was just the paranoia, and it really scared me. When I felt my pulse however it was perfectly normal, perfectly even, etc. There still fills like there is some pressure around my chest area but I generally feel better. Walking home was a lot more tiring today as well, but I am not sure whether it was because I was scared of getting a heart attack or the fact that I hardly got any sleep. So my parents are going out this weekend so I can't go to the doctors right now but I might ask the school nurse to see what she thinks. CAN ANYONE HELP ME!? I AM REALLY REALLY REALLY NERVOUS and I need to know if this is normal after 2 days of Adderall and will the feeling just go away with time or if it something serious and life threatening! THANK YOU!

First, stop taking stuff to keep you awake or help you study. Adderall is an amphetamine based medication used for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Unless you have ADHD and have been prescribed this my your healthcare professional, then don't use it.

I would say what you need is less stress and more rest. The mere fact you are freaking out over this at the moment will make you panic, push adrenaline into your heart more and make your heart beat faster, maybe irregular, and you will tire fast.

"I CAN'T REALLY CONCENTRATE DUE TO MY CONSTANT ANXIETY RIGHT NOW." well that's you issue in a nutshell. cut the drugs and relax, and all will be fine.

Of course if symptoms persist, see your doctor. But if you do what I said above, I highly doubt they will. Might take another day of so once you start to relax.

Medications are no help in school. Paranoia is a big side effect to a lot of these. You need to rehydrate your body, drink plenty of water and try to rest. Your hear beats faster when you are nervous, and the lack of sleep can really do harm to your body.

Drink fluid, rest up and hopefully the symptoms will subside.
