this is my second post today! My first, is in the GAD forum and I thought I would post a question here to try and narrow down what is going on with me. I have a) night terrors where I wake up feeling like i forgot how to breathe, and because of that that I will die. They are really severe so I shoot up from horizontal and start freaking out. they go away after about 3 minutes and then I can go back to sleep. b) daytime panic attacks where my breathing is heavy and it is hard to breathe - they last up to 10-15 minutes and c) anxiety and extreme muscle tension all over, ankles, feet, shoulders, entire back, neck head, face. I think i have had this for many years, since I was a kid even. All of these are episodic - they come and go. Right now I have had muscle tension anxiety for about 7 days straight. It is accompanied by adrenaline surges where my heart will beat. Sometimes I feel disoriented or foggy in a spot in my forehead right above my nose - it feels like I cant think d) When I am feeling anxiety like this, I can be hyper vigilant. A sudden noise in another room where someone bumps a wall or drops something sends a shock through my system and is really uncomfortable.
Anyone have these similar symptoms?
