Bad anxiety when trying to fall asleep

Postby mute » Sun Feb 09, 2020 7:43 pm

It started on monday and i felt like i was having a heart attack but it got better in few days
And usually better during the day.
then i read about heart attack symptomps and started having them also..
But i felt better after my kickboxing classes and gym workouts.
I assume if it was heart attack i would feel weakness when excersising?

So anyway
yesterday night i thought it was almost gone and then i go to asleep and it hit me like a train.
every time i tey to fall asleep my heart would srart pounding and i feel pain in my left arm etc.
Then i get up and it goes away.
I listen to some meditation music and its gone.
Try to fall asleep again and heart pounding my brain is freaking out etc...
So i get up and again it goes away.
I lay down for another hour listening to some videos about empaths and how to protect yourswlf from energy vampires.. and feel ok.
by now its 3:45am and it only shows up every time i try to fall asleep...

This has never happened so intensely to feel like a heart attack(im 38 not in too bad health)
How the hell do i stop thinking about other people's problems?
Especially when its my mom thats draining my energy
She is not doing so well and i cant help her because im having some money issues also.
There are times when i feel right and centered and realize that i dont owe people anything but then it fades away andni go back to picking up other peoples problems as my own and worrying about them..

How about you see a doctor?

I have no method for stopping unwanted thoughts, except that if there's nothing you can do about other people's problems -- and there probably isn't -- the best you can do is to visualise them well and happy.

I cut everyone off who ws draining me and instantly felt good...
went to emergency they said heart looks and sounds good most likely very bad anxiety
I was honestly scared to go to bed. its a really fed up feeling when you want to sleep but scared of your bed.

I found out quickly which people were draining me
because they got very angry and irritated when they couldn't leech off me

I know this feeling, I really do. I'm nodding off in the living room, having taken the precaution of getting ready for bed, but the minute I walk into my bedroom I get that "scared of my bed" feeling. And I try, I honestly do, but as soon as I get into bed I have that panicked "gotta get up" feeling, and almost always I do. I also take more than the prescribed dose of my anti-anxiety meds, then sit up reading until I feel my mind caving in.

I'm glad you got rid of the leeches and that there's nothing wrong with your heart. I hope you're sleeping better now.

Maybe, like me, you have one or two major Bad Things you can't do anything about. Something in your current situation could be triggering horrific memories you can't face -- and, obviously, can't change.

If I light on the cure I'll get back to you, mute.

went to er and they checked the heart and pulse and stuff
said its good.
so it was just really bad anxiety or whatever it was
also anxiety caused by me thinking that I might not wake up in the morning and see my kid that was the worst part of it

It saddened me to hear about that, I hope you get pretty well soon.

I always get so active/anxious when trying to sleep... Even when I think I'm "tired"
