Scared.......support needed
« on: January 18, 2014, 12:59:28 AM »
Hi everyone I'm new and my name is Cindee.  I have a question.  A few weeks ago I was at home on vacation and I had a panic attack.  I knew what it was immediately because about 30 years ago I had a similar experience only much more intense and scarey and I ended up pretty much incapacitated for over a year.  This is my fear...

I was having panic attacks daily was becoming afraid to drive or leave my house but I forced myself to go out.  When the panic feelings would start I would go get on my treadmill and Im sure you all know that isnt easy when you feel all wobbly.  The treadmill helped and I stuck with it for about 6 days.  On the 7th day I went for deep massage therapy came home when on my treadmill and when I got off my feet and legs were pins and needles.

Well that was a week ago.  I was getting very scared because I cannot figure out what I am having these feelings of electric  shocks running up and down my leg and when I force myself to walk on the treadmill it seems to make the tingling less intense and almost non-existent.

Is there anyways pins and needles and tingling in legs feet hands etc can be caused by stress and anxiety????.  I have been under stress, I am a breast cancer survivor and was faced with 2 biopsies last year and numerous conflicts at work which caused me high stress and anxiety.

Has anyone had this time of reaction to stress or anxiety?  I have it all the time but it gets better if I exercise

Please send any comments advice etc.

Thanks everyone
Cindee

I think (from my recent experiences) that this is a continuation of the anxiety. As long as you are not overdoing it, I know exercise is so good for you! My doctor told me to get walking everyday, and I've been slacking the past few(many) days. But, I know it is healthy for mind and body!

Maybe call your doctor for reassurance and then don't be afraid to get back on that treadmill. You will be ok...
I have so much sympathy right now - it's hard!!!
