I haven't posted here in a long time but today I feel the need for a little morale boost. Last night I started feeling anxious and couldn't sleep. I finally fell asleep around 2:00 a.m. I haven't had a panic attck, a REAL panic attack in a few years so this caught me by surprise. I was on meds for maybe 4-5 years and this spring my Dr. and I discussed going off totally. Over the past year I was easing off the meds a little each month till i was down to maybe one pill a week, well, half a pill. I do have a theory though why now I'm feeling anxious.
My PAs started maybe 5-6 years ago before my birthday, maybe 45th? Anyway, my birthday is next month, 9/30. It's almost like my body's clock knows it's getting another year older and those chemical imbalances (thanks menopause) are going at it again. My PAs started at the beginning of menopause so it's pretty much all physical/chemical with me.
It's so frustrating! I decided to go back on my meds, half a pill to start like I started originally, not watch the TV news or go online to find news and watch lighter TV shows like sitcoms, cooking and some other silly reality shows.
Has anyone ever had a good run of no attacks only to have them come back again? Any new advice for me?
