Hi, I'm new to this site, but the heading for this discussion jumped right out at me.....This IS my panic attacks for the past 8 years, this is the ONLY type of panic attack i have.
Eventually from nagging from family and my partner i sought medical help for my panic disorder and to be quite honest its just gotten worse from then on.
But i know how it feels to get barely enough sleep to keep you going through the day....or learnt to survive with no sleep.....for weeks on end.
I used to have 1 maybe 2 panic attacks per night for a few months and then they would disappear, like nothing had happened, and id always fall asleep after from exhaustion. But since starting the meds i have gone from having 17+ over a 24 hour period for about a week, to now just having one continuous panic attack from around 7-8 at night until I'm too exhausted to stay awake, then to top it all off i get woken up at around 6am with a panic attack, and then that's it, I'm up, whether I've had 5 or 1 hours sleep....... this has been going on for around a week now and the week before that was even worse.
Anyways I'm going to go and start my own discussion and go into more detail and see if anyone has some helpful advice, id just thought id let you know that yes a lot of people get these types of panic attacks, its just this is the only panic attack i happen to get.
Thanks for reading x
