Hope you get a good nights sleep big hugs
Poor poor you. Sleep deprivation always makes things worse - I suffer so much with this so I know how you're feeling. Please take extra special care because you're very important to the people around you. big hugs

Yes it will pass. Take care we're thinking of you
It will pass even though it doesn't feel like it. Promise. Thinking of you. <3 xx
Well done you! Take special care & Big Pandy Hugs
Thanks Stephen! X
Yay, good to see
Damn, not again. Has anyone been able to help you with this?
I rang the perinatal team that I'm working with to see if I could get my medication reviewed before 1st June. The nurse I spoke to says she will get them to call me if there's a cancellation and she's going to speak to the consultant to see if there
Are any changes they can make in the meantime. .
Sounds like you are in good hands. Wish there was something I could do for you Stephi, I know how terrible this can be.
Panic attacks are so scary. I think I was getting them instead of gallbladder attacks & didn't even think of it till I had my gallbladder removed! Hope you get this sorted soon. <3
So sorry to hear this Stephi C. It sounds like your body (sympathetic nervous system / fight or flight) has been triggered or something. Hopefully it's run it's course or someone has been able to help you in some way by now
(A similar thing happened to me a few weeks ago, mindfulness didn't help me because there were no thoughts causing it to keep going, Weird)
Oh, nocturnal panic attack? They are just plain rude. Sorry you have to deal with that.
Yea, I used to get them at sunrise EVERY morning for around 6 months. Totally agree
Well, my nocturnal panic attacks were caused by the stress of my situation at the time. The situation didn't last and NONE of my fears came to fruition. Looking back, it would have been beneficial to accept my situation as it was, do my best and
make peace with the 'worst case' scenario playing in my head every day. Sorry if this isn't helpful, I don't know if your situation is even remotely similar
Thanks Rorschach. I think it's to do with my hormones trying to get back to normal as these bouts of extreme anxiety seem to appear every few weeks. Knowing that doesn't help at 4am when my mind and heart are racing and it feels like parts of my body
Are going into spasm and literally everything makes my body jump like I've been shocked!
Aren't they just! It's ALWAYS at night- it's like I can actually feel it creeping in to get me. Soul crushing!
Did you? What eventually made them stop?
Thank you for sharing! I have a 4 month old baby- that's my situation! There's nothing that's worrying me other that the fear I can't explain! Nothing about my situation I can or would want to change other than not feeling like this anymore.
I'm doing literally everything it's possible for a person to do to help themselves- I'm just sick of it and fed up of waiting for it to stop xx
Oh poor you. Please try to focus on something that makes you happy and shut out things that don't
Take good care of yourself and big Panda hugs
Night terrors - awful. Everything is so exaggerated and out of proportion when the night anxiety seeps in. I really feel for you
