Hi, I would suggest you to take some counseling sessions along with medication. Refrain yourself from stopping the medicines on your own. See a psychiatrist again to restart the medication.

Case 1: when a person exercise or run or work out regularly his heart rate and blood pressure increases vigorously. Case 2: when one suffers from anxiety or panic disorder he feels nervous and his heart rate and blood pressure increases abruptly like case 1. Now I want to know why the rise in blood pressure in case 1 does not harm but the same in case 2 harms heart and kidneys. Please detailed explanation!

Best fast solution for anxiety and panic attacks? Been suffering this since many years.

Best fast solution for anxiety and panic attacks? Been suffering this since many years.
Anything easily gained, is easily lost. There is no fast solution.You are obviously not handling stress well. You seem to have a nervous disposition, perhaps developed from your past. If you can identify that source you may be able to work it out in therapy. Perhaps the home life was too restrictive or strict, or you were reprimanded at some time rather severely, or you did not develop adequate defense mechanisms to cope with stress, etc. You are reacting with fear and converting this into a psychosomatic reaction instead of dealing with it. Don’t panic though because if you cooperate a counselor can be of much help to resolve this. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution, both physically and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be. So like I told you earlier you must work at it.

Given that all the reports are negative, he is HIV negative for sure and this is one thing that he needs to be convinced about. HIV phobia is sometimes more complex to manage than the disease itself and needs to be done very patiently. Instead of spending time, money and energy re-testing so many times, he should actually be seeing an expert now. We will need to sit across him and address each of his concern points one by one. He will need to be counseled well and may need some anti-anxiety medications for a short period. We will be able to help him better once we talk to him and then plan the further line of action over a private consult/chat. But be assured that each of these persons does come back to normal with proper care- so do not worry- he will be fine for sure.

Dear lybrate-user do not choose medicine haphazardly .or from you choice. You need antianxiety medicine not sleeping pill which will make you sleep or drowsy. I donot agree with the medicine you have mentioned. If you can - consult psychiatrist or physician for the proper antianxiety medicine. Once your trip is over. Consult psychiatrist for proper diagnosis n mangement of Anxiety n Panic attack. Let him analyse your past. You way of thinking pattern. Your personality. Your painful event hidden in the subconscious mind. Etc then he will tell you about how to take it out or remove or dilute its effect which is representing as Anxiety of panic attack then treat with latest therapy for permanent cure like RTMS therapy Insight oriented psychothrapy etc.

Whenever we are in stress (anxiety and panic), the body reacts with the famous flight or fight response. When this happens the body wants to act on this mode and therefore the demand for oxygen increases almost in proportion to the stress. Simultaneously, the body releases cortisol, the stress hormone. When this happens the body is all geared to deal with the emergency, which is really very good. Unfortunately, this reaction can happen because we imagine the threat without any real reason and the body oftentimes goes through these motions wastefully. Unused hormones and tightening of muscles to combat the non-existent stress only leaves a trail of toxins that has to be expelled by the body. That causes further stress. Whenever we are in stress of any kind we do move into the right brain mode, which can creatively make a mountain out of a molehill with some contribution from lateral thinking. The right brain can make you think in the negative and increase the level of distress.

Hello I am 24 year old. I suffer anxiety and panic attack from last three years. I consulted almost five psychiatrists and a psychologist. The panic attack and negative thinking left but still I feel nervous and worry sometimes. I feel like I undergo breathlessness which causes my heart rate to increase, but breathlessness does not occur in real. These 10-15 minutes cause panic in me and due to this I worry whole day. What to do which may reduce it permanently.
