Is it possible to have anxiety attacks during mania?

Is it possible to have anxiety attacks during mania?

Yes: The new diagnostic manual for psychiatrists the dsm-v acknowledges that panic attacks can accompany several mental illnesses in a way that should be considered simultaneously and can be a specifier for a more severe and complex variety of illness. The reason this is significant is because previously in dsm-iv it was less clear which symptoms were severe mental illness or a separate panic disorder.

I been having anxiety attacks during sex I need help?

I been having anxiety attacks during sex I need help?

Could be trauma?: I recommend that you talk with a trusted psychologist or therapist to explore the roots of these anxiety attacks associated with sex. It could be related to previous traumatic experiences with sex. Or it could be anxiety about the safety of the person you are with, your own self-worth, or other conflicts about intimacy.

What are some good relaxation techniques to use during anxiety or during a panic attack?

What are some good relaxation techniques to use during anxiety or during a panic attack?

Try smoking (?): What! On a Health Website? I mean the breathing pattern - w/out a cigarette! Actually, many smokers benefit from the breath pattern w/out knowing the role it plays. The deep inhale, hold, and full exhale thru the lips is very good for you. It reduces BP and HR. Part of "I need a smoke! " is about this. So, don't use tobacco - but take the time of a cigarette and breathe that way whenever you want.

What chemical reactions take place before, during and after panic attack, fear and anxiety in males?

What chemical reactions take place before, during and after panic attack, fear and anxiety in males?

Hundreds!: There are lots of chemical reactions going on in our body at any time. With fear (whether to a known cause or due to panic attacks which can happen for unclear reasons or with no definite threat) one of the main ones is the adrenaline surge (fight or flight response) which causes a multitude of reactions itself.

Are there any preventative measures I can take to reduce intensity and frequency of panic attacks/anxiety during extremely stressful times? Thank you.

Are there any preventative measures I can take to reduce intensity and frequency of panic attacks/anxiety during extremely stressful times? Thank you.

The Sympathetic part: Of your central nervous system is setting of alarms. The Parasympathetic part of your CNS slows things down, a yin and yang sort of balancing act our body does. Use a book and technique called the Relaxation Response by Herbert Benson and you will make out better. Peace and good health. See www. Relaxationresponse. Org and see a psychologist for help.

I'm a 21 yr old female who suffers from anxiety/panic attacks. During an attack my hr can get up to 150-160. Is this dangerous?

Possibly: You should be in treatment and have an anxiolytic available to reduce these panic attacks. SSRI treatment and psychotherapy will be more beneficial long term, and then you can get off the benzodiazapines, thereafter. 150-160 is a good target heart rate when you are doing cardiovascular exercise, so you should consider that along with your overall health.

Are panic attacks in the middle of the night more concerning than during the day? I'm taking 40 mgs of Prozac (fluoxetine) for anxiety already

Are panic attacks in the middle of the night more concerning than during the day? I'm taking 40 mgs of Prozac (fluoxetine) for anxiety already

Panic Attacks: Not necessarily but it would help if you saw a mental health professional to help you reduce anxiety and learn better ways of coping to reduce tension. Panic in the middle of the night may convey you are not talking through your concerns during the day. Also try the anti anxiety app for daily help on your phone. Best wishes.

I suffer from terrible anxiety. During a mild panic attack I took my own blood pressure at home and the result was 149/87. Can panic cause a spike?

I suffer from terrible anxiety. During a mild panic attack I took my own blood pressure at home and the result was 149/87. Can panic cause a spike?

Yes, it can: Anxiety can cause increases in the systolic and diastolic blood pressures although as long as this is not sustained it is important to realize that you are not going to probably sustain any permanent damage from this single event. You may want to practice deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, a representative resource is here: http://www. Mtsu. Edu/healthpro/documents/meditation.pdf

Could I have died/ passed out? I think I had my first anxiety or panic attack 2day. My BP during this episode was 151/100 pulse 134. Bp normal later

Checkup is in order: Highly doubtful that you died. A physical checkup is order if you have not had one recently. There also should be mental health evaluation. Depending what is determined, psychotherapy may be helpful or/and possibly medication for a panic disorder if there are recurrent symptoms. There are various relaxation techniques which may be incorporated into a psychotherapy approach.

Its dangerous to spike in blood pressure up to 215/99 during panic attack or anxiety?

Its dangerous to spike in blood pressure up to 215/99 during panic attack or anxiety?

It can be: As if you have a susceptible area in a blood vessel, it could cause a rupture (like an ruptured aneurysm) and it can place significant strain on the heart and brain, less so in the case of younger persons as yourself. Nonetheless you'd like to avoid spikes like this if possible.

How to not feel so drained from panic attacks. I feel super sleepy during and after an anxiety attack. How can I manage?

Get treated: Seek medical attention and try to get a better control over your anxiety, as if you can hope to have less anxiety attacks, you will not need to deal with the secondary lethargy they cause you. Good luck.

Since getting a headache during rigorous exercise recently I have been getting mild migraine type symptoms and anxiety attacks for no reason?

Would start by: Dropping rigor of your exercise routines. These may anticipatory symptoms. Consider cognitive behavioral tx to break this early on. Breath in slowly & deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to.

Need more info.: Difficult to answer without a history of your symptoms, what's been tried in the past, etc. Did someone diagnose "panic attacks during sleep" or is that your thought?
