Hi since the past 2 months I've been dealing with health anxiety and it all started with a panic attack where I couldn't breathe well (hyperventilation) and visited the doctor and there was nothing wrong with my lungs but since then there's a mild pain in heart area which comes and goes specially when I'm laying down or after eating and also took EKG and ECG 2 times but there was nothing wrong with my heart too so what could it be? Btw I'm 20 years old, I don't smoke nor drink and I'm really skinny.

Yoga or deep breathing may relax your body and lower stress. Exercise can help calm your mind and offset potential side effects of medication, such as weight gain. Stay away from alcoholic drinks, caffeine, smoking, and recreational drugs, which can trigger attacks.

Hello! My name is Harsh. I'm a seventeen years old boy. Let me mention my problems. It all started three years ago, I had a severe panic attack. At that time I had no clue what it was so I panicked really bad and thought I was gonna have a heart attack. I went to a hospital as it was really severe. After a few days anxiety attacks became normal to me and I used to have them every night. I got used to them and then all of a sudden one day I realized that I don't see the world like I used to. The world seemed unreal and I started having severe problems with my concentration and memory. When the feeling of derealisation first started I lost control and thought I was going crazy. Everyone told me I was going nuts and it was just my belief. With time I got into drugs and smoking but after three months I completely left it but the withdrawal effects were severe and made me even more depressed. It has always been difficult and my grades has been so down that I don't believe I will graduate from senior high school next year. The world seems unreal and I don't feel emotionally connected to people as I don't remember anything about myself. I do remember but at the same time I don't have visual memories. I don't enjoy anything and nothing makes me happy nomore.

Dear Aryan, Just for 10 days use of Lonazep, you may not get withdrawal symptoms. But it is better to wait for 10 more days so that flunil takes action. Then you can take whenever necessary - not daily.

Did you know that you may be suffering from Panic Disorder if you are having panic attacks?

A person visits the doctor if he/she is suffering from any illness. However, in case of any mental illness or condition, one either is not aware or ignores it. Many patients also opt for self-treatment measures which are not advisable.

Panic disorder is one of the most common mental illnesses observed in most of the people. The patient suffers from panic attacks in such cases. These attacks are a sudden surge of fear and anxiety. Know about it and take necessary steps if and when it happens.

Symptoms of a Panic Disorder
It is difficult to recognize any mental illness, especially a panic disorder as most of the symptoms of a panic attack are similar to that of a heart attack. However, there are a few symptoms, which help people identify and differentiate between panic attack and heart attack. Some of these are listed below

  1. Pounding of the heart
  2. Discomfort or chest pain
  3. Hyperventilation or shortness of breath
  4. Shaking or trembling
  5. Feeling detached from the surrounding
  6. Excessive sweating
  7. Choking
  8. Nausea
  9. Tingling sensation
  10. Cold flashes
  11. Feeling of losing control or dying

Causes of having panic attacks
It is almost impossible to identify the exact reason behind the panic attack as various incidents cause the condition. A genetic tendency is one of the major reasons behind the panic attacks. Stress is another primary reason behind these attacks and is common for those people who have recently joined college, a new workplace or are newly married. A panic attack can also be due to other physical or medical conditions.

How to deal with Panic Attacks?
The best way to deal with panic attacks is to consult a professional, who will advise or help the patient handle the situations. If the doctor is not available, then it is suggested to follow a few measures that might help one deal with the condition.

A few measures to follow-

  1. It is recommended to avoid any addictive activity such as smoking or drinking as it aggravates panic disorder and increases the frequency in which a person might have panic attacks.
  2. It is advised to learn to control the breathing as this helps a lot during the panic attacks. When an attack sets in, the patient loses control over breathing and suffers from shortness of breath, which increases the effect of the attack. It is advised to take deep breaths as it helps improve the situation and relieve the mind from stress.
  3. It is suggested to exercise and practice relaxation techniques regularly as this helps control the situation. This also reduced the magnitude and frequency of the panic attack, as it calms the mind, thus relieving stress.

Panic disorder is a serious issue, which if not handled properly might lead to severe problems. Hence, it is advised to seek the advice of a professional at the early stage.

Hello Lybrate user For psychological issues such as depression and anxiety combination therapy is suitable i.e. Medecines along with psychotherapy sessions. It is a time consuming process and might take 6-8 months to bring about its effect depending on the severity of the symptoms. Try to keep continuing with the CBT sessions. Try to maintain a thought diary and write about your thoughts and feelings everyday. Also try deep breathing exercises and physical exercises to keep mind and body active and balanced. For any further guidance you can also reach out to me through the Lybrate app.

5 Tips To Instantly Reduce Your Anxiety

5 Tips To Instantly Reduce Your Anxiety

Living with anxiety on a daily basis can be really stressful. And while you are dealing with anxiety it is very important not to sway away with the symptoms and commit yourself to a treatment. For instant release of anxiety you really don't need to go for a vacation or to the spa or a weekend retreat. It is easy to beat anxiety within 5-15 minutes while you are at your home.

So don't think and instantly reduce your anxiety to give yourself a wonderful day.

Here are 5 tips to instantly reduce your anxiety :

1. Meditation

Meditation for a few minutes daily helps relieve anxiety. As per a research, doing meditation daily changes the neural pathways of the brain thereby making it more flexible towards stress. Meditation is the simplest way to beat anxiety. All you have to do is just sit straight with feet on the floor and closed eyes. Next just focus your energy on reciting a mantra.

2. Deep Breathing

A 5 minute breathing regime is a sure shot way to relieve anxiety. Sit straight with closed eyes and place your hands on your abdomen. First start with slow inhalation of air through the nose. Feel the breath through your abdomen and head and then reverse the process by exhaling it out through the mouth. Psychologists state that deep breathing helps to bring down stress and anxiety by lowering the blood pressure.

3. Laugh Aloud

A good laugh is a nice way to shed off the stress and anxiety. When you laugh, chemical endorphins are released which elevate your mood. A good laugh also lowers the cortisol levels which are the stress hormones.

4. Talk to someone

Distracting yourself by talking to friends and family helps. The mind starts wandering when in anxiety and alone and the effective technique to talk to some trusted person helps. The support you get from family and friends just boosts you back and wards you off from the symptoms. In case of a panic attack, you can request the company of a friend and relative to watch over you.

5. Trick your Anxious Thoughts

Anxiety does not happen suddenly but is due to the mind's tendency to have negative thoughts spiraling day in and day out, and the worse is that you have no control over the thoughts. Learn to tame these thoughts and the triggers which cause these to keep anxiety at bay.

There are strategies which you can try to help you keep anxious thoughts away. They are as below :

a. Question yourself when you experience anxiety. A long checklist helps you make your thoughts more realistic.
b. Give affirmations to yourself that everything is okay, you will get over the situation. Usually affirmations are made to comfort one.
c. Know the physical symptoms , as many times, physical sensations like in case of a panic attack tend to trigger anxiety and stress. When you get used to the symptoms, the mind does not send signals for anxiety to the brain. Create exercise to habituate yourself to a panic attack.

There is no cure for anxiety but the fastest way to get your anxiety under control is to simply manage it.
