Seizure Fears Back Again
« on: June 14, 2014, 09:09:01 PM »
I use to chat in here for awhile until i forgot my account >.<. My username was kylefinn24 anyway i was doing great for awhile no anxiety. Now recently i heard a coworker son had a seizure and she not meaning to went into details. Now all the time i feel like im in a cloud and cant remember anything,my tongue feels numb or not even there, my legs feel like jello or as if there not even there followed by racing thoughts and bad headaches. I question all the time if this is reality or a dream. Ive questioned my therapist and said you had alot of tests done and never had a seizure before why would you now ?  I just cant seem to accept it. Im also deathly afraid to shower to long cause im afraid to have one in there and noone will find me :/ please hopefully theres a solution or answer cause xanax only temporarily works.

given that this is almost certainly a symptom of anxiety - you're not having a seizure, you've had tests that would tell you if something was wrong that might cause them! - I wonder if you've tried a course of CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy?

Medications are often more a means to a solution than the solution themselves. CBT looks at changing the way we think and feel about things, helping us to better analyze and understand our symptoms. Ask your therapist, and get their opinion, but I honestly think it could be a great help to you :)

I know it's hard, but you have to realize that your problems are caused by the fear. It can be a powerful thing, and can totally destroy our lives if we're not careful. Keep going with the CBT. I really hope it helps :)

Haha yeah. Generally work is more stressful than everyday life I think, which makes the anxiety worse and makes it harder for us to 'shrug off' the symptoms. Practice makes perfect though, as they say :)

i got dejavu and racing thoughts after severe anxiety/DP/DR. (I thought seizures too at first) but when my anxiety calmed, they stopped. Hasn't happened in years.

IT's scary. But anxiety can mess you up!

classic anxiety.

lots of anxious people fear seizures.  There are causes  for developing seizures.   so getting it into your head that you will have them isn't  going to make it so.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state
