How do you feel AFTER an anxiety attack??
« on: March 16, 2009, 08:20:03 PM »
Hey all! I am just wondering if any of you feel sick for the rest of the day after an anxiety attack? I had one this morning, and I have been feeling lousy since then.  :( Do any of you get "side effects" from one afterwards??

Hello PerketteMol -

I usually feel really tired after an attack. Luckily for me - most of my attacks happen at night so I try to go to sleep.  I think its normal to feel really lousy.

I feel bad for the rest of the day, shakey/weak/sad/on edge.  Sometimes it even carries over to the next day.

I've noticed that for me, the depression kicks in after the anxiety attack. That's perhaps why some of the tiredness comes into play for me at least. I always feel bad when they happen because I want so badly for them to go away and to go back to being "normal" like I was before the anxiety. The important thing for me is to learn not to dwell on it and to talk myself through the fact that it's just one of those things that happens to me and try not to spend too much time reflecting on the anxiety attack and focus on the current task at hand.

Yeah when I had panic attacks it would drain the life out of me both mentally and physically, and since i would have them every 20 mins to an hour during the worst of times it was a living HELL!!!

You haven't said if you can afford Therapy OR have considered meds to deal with this put those a great options and do work!!!  That's always good to hear!!
