Anxiety

Just wondering really if any fellow members have suffered from this before?

I always seem to get this after a night on the drink, feeling really low, depressed and generally contemplating everything in my life.

The next day everything is more or less fine.

Went to the hospital because my heart was racing the night after the last bank holiday, doctor did a trace of my heart which showed no problems.

Apparently anxiety is totally mental, thus all the feelings I get when I'm suffering such as racing heart, feeling suicidal, thinking I'm going to die etc are not really related to the heart all would happen would be a panic attack.

Everything is good in my life at the moment, gorgeous girlfriend, nice flat etc. I feel because of what I am like emotionally it must be the alcohol causing it.

Anyone else suffer or have experienced anything like this?

    to be fair mate, i know the difference between a hangover and something else.

    drank properly (binge drinking) since i was 18 ish and never suffered anything like this. Sure I feel like ****, but nothing
    like acing heart, dizzyness etc.

    Alcohol is a natural depressant. Some people are more susceptable to it's depressive effects than others.

    I know that I am, and it would seem that you are too.

    The choice is yours. Is that small window of euphoria that you get when you're pissed really worth feeling the way you feel now?

    how did u stop it?





    I took several months off the ale, none what so ever. Then once I started again I cut right down on my former habits.

    If I hammer it now for a few good sessions I get anxious...loud noises scare the fook out of me, nervousness, hot sweats, palpitations etc, so I don't usually bother anymore.

    I suffer from Anxiety mate, exactly the same as you mention.

    Racing heart
    Palpitations
    Dizziness
    Tight Chest
    Thinking im going to die
    Aching body
    pains down my left arm and in my jaw (making me think im having a heart attack)


    And it gets loads worse after a heavy session, ive ended up in A&E several times thinking im having a heart attack.

    I've found the best way to deal with it is to talk to other people that suffer from it, when I get my symptoms now I just tell my self to stop being so stupid and get on with things.

    got the doc to prescribe you a benzodiazepine.

    drinking on benzos while fun for some is too much for many though.

    For me was linked to depression i was having last summer.

    Very intense feelings of anxiety, very unpleasant to be honest mate, know what your going through.

    Its all in your head though! Tough one to come to terms with that fact.

    i have improved so much but this has been with the aid of counselling and also medication, which im happy to say im nearly off now, just on a very reduced dose.

    You would be surprised the amount of people who suffer in silence mate.

    i talked to some of my friends and 2 of them had been through or were still going through what i was but didnt say anything to anyone as they thought they were the only ones!

    Have a chat to any of your close friends mate.

    try not to let it get you down too much, i also foound alcohol to really amplify these feelings so have virtually become tea total. it makes a massive difference.

    good luck

    Same I always feel real **** after a heavy drink session.

    Even after a few ciders I get happy, hyper, then in a few hours groggy and depressed unless Im around some hot bird. Not worth the bother usually. If I had a really good night it may be enough to take away the next day depression but a **** night out added to the hangover is suicidal. Best natural feeling is after a good cardio or weights session but that's hard work and not really effective for being out. eg. Hold on guys im just going to the bar to order 50 push ups, 100 star jumps and 5 mins sprints worth of endorphins.

    I'm naturally depressive anxious person so obviulsy the depressive effects of drink are going to make this worse.

    I think we have the answer here already. Alcohol. I hardly drink now and what a difference it is to wake up feeling good. Its over two years since I had to spend the next day in bed and even that was a funeral of a good mate.
    I went to voluntary counselling. The people who were running it had all been throung the same thing and from then on it was up hill.
    I am afraid the only cure is not to be scared of them but enjoy them and they will not bother you anymore. Lets be fair here. We are still here arn't we.

    Take care mate

    The depression/contemplation thing is something I have after a drink VERY badly

    I used to use diazepam the day afte a drink to onuter this, but that wasnt very bright in hindsight. I know dont drink as often and when I do, accept the fact I will feel like throwing myself in front of a train the next day lol

    I havent drank for a month (which is an absolute fuking miracle for me!!) and I miss the crack and the fun nights, but I dont miss the next day feeling like u described and this outweighs the good times for me, so its got to go

    Have you ever suffered with anxiety or depression other than after drinking?

    I've been treated for depression and anxiety for the past 10 years, mainly with SSRIs. I still get the whole post alcohol anxiety thing but normally only when I have got completely battered. The anxiety tends to last a few days. Only thing you can really do is reduce the amount you drink. Plenty of sleep also seems to help. You could consider supplementing with tryptophan. It's an amino acid which you can buy from Holland and Barrett etc. The body uses tryptophan to make serotonin (and niacin). Serotonin acts as a mood stabiliser and produces healthy sleep.

    Your hosital incident is a classic panic attack. If you continue to get them you might want to chat to your GP about a mild SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor) or beta blocker depending on your presentation.
