Can dehydration cause you to feel like you're having an anxiety / panic attack?

Can dehydration cause you to feel like you're having an anxiety / panic attack?

Absolutely: Any condition which limits blood flow to the brain can result in a wide range of metabolic derangements that can affect the psyche. In the dehydrated state, the brain can easily misinterpret both external and internal signals leading to psychiatric symptoms such as confusion, panic, and even frank psychosis.

Cause or effect?: If you are worried about it you have anxiety, which may be warranted. If you notice you are feeling different and excessively cold, you may have a medical condition that has this symptom. Low thyroid is one thing that comes to mind. I would wright down what your symptoms and how long they have been present and see your doc.

It sounds like: Anxiety, since physically other things have been ruled out. We're you checked for Lyme? It can impact on neurological issues. Contact a psychologist and start working on anxiety and negative thoughts. Be sure to check Lyme as well.

On Xifaxan (rifaximin). I took Zofran, Slept, woke up, everything looked blurry. Heart racing very fast, agonizing cramps. Is it dehydration, reaction or anxiety?

Maybe both drugs: YOu are taking more than one drug and the side effects can overlap. Why are you taking xifaxin This is usually for liver disease or people with travelers diarrhea. Can also cause diarrhea of itself. Both drugs can cause nausea, and either can cause cramps. I would eliminate the zofran (ondansetron) as this is very expensive and used mostly for people on chemotherapy. Heart racing may be anxiety BEst wishes

Dehydration: I don't what types of tests you have had but diabetes insipid us and diabetes mellitus need to be ruled out. Also other endocrine abnormalities including pituitary tumor needs to be ruled out.

Anxiety w/possible: dehydration needs to be treated. Please see your doc and start drinking water, 6 to 8 8 oz. glasses depending on your weight and body size. Learn skills to manage your anxiety. Medication may be used but don't skip real therapy. See www. Relaxationresponse. Org to learn a technique to help yourself. Peace and good health.

Arm feels numb tingly since 4am is 11am now, no chest pain but I do have gas, had an anxiety attack yday for first time in 2yrs and am dehydrated.

Arm feels numb tingly since 4am is 11am now, no chest pain but I do have gas, had an anxiety attack yday for first time in 2yrs and am dehydrated.

Anxious, numb: Your history indicates panic attacks. I'm sorry to hear that you've experienced another attack. It sounds like, first things first, acute medical problems should be ruled out, so do give a ring to your doc right away, or go to ER if physical sxs worsen. Most likely, your sxs represent recurrence of anxiety. meet with a psych MD and consider why anx may be picking up & review available treatments:)

Dehydrated, nausea, fatigue. Been having issues sleeping. Anxiety all day, jittery, low grade fever, irritable, aggressive, No appetite. Ongoing week?

Exam needed: Your symptoms are nonspecific and nondiagnostic at this time and there seem to be a few unrelated issues ongoing. Your best move is to see your physician who will take a thorough history and perform a careful physical examination. If deemed advisable appropriate tests will be ordered in order to make a diagnosis and prescribe proper treatment. For anxiety and insomnia stress management is helpful

I: I am not sure what the actual question is here. Have you talked to your regular doctor since your were evaluated in the emergency room? If not, I recommend that you do. Your doctor can follow up with the symptoms that continue to arise. He or she can determine if you need any further medical testing. I can not diagnose you, but the symptoms you are experiencing can happen during a panic attack, such as feeling really nervous or anxious; feeling frightened; shaking; sweating, feeling faint as well as your head feeling funny. Pounding or rapid heartbeat and chest pain or tightness can be accompanied by difficulty breathing or rapid breathing. People can experience numbness or tingling in their fingers. You may feel very odd, like you are outside of yourself or the world around you might seem unreal. The average panic attack usually lasts ten minutes or less. The problem that can occur once you start getting panic attacks is that you start focusing on the fear of getting another one. You might start to avoid people, places or things that you think triggered a panic attack. Please see your doctor to determine if any further medical evaluation is warranted. Your doctor may suggest that you see a psychologist or a psychiatrist, so that you can get help to nip your symptoms in the bud early on. Good luck.
