Sleep apnea or Just anxiety?

Adam Asked: Sleep apnea or Just anxiety?

Ok so first i'll start by saying I have Anxiety very bad. I take medicine but I just started taking it.

But Since January I have woken up having to catch my breath but I wake up In such a state of panic, I get up and start running and I scream, and I can't control it My body is completely numb. It would you usually happen about 45 minutes to an hour after falling asleep, It's only happened about 4 or 5 times since january, It has since gone away, I haven't had one in over a month. My doctor said it doesn't sound like sleep apnea, and I have no symptoms of sleep apnea, I don't have a morning headache, I don't snore, I don't sleep tired during the day, I don't fall asleep in inappropriate places. And I was reading a anxiety forum and the Nocturnal panic attacks sounds just like what I experience but I just wanna get another opinion. I'm getting a sleep study done in two weeks. I also have an extra heartbeat because of my anxiety. Thank you.

Why can’t I sleep ( insomnia or just worrying?)?

Adam Asked: Why can’t I sleep ( insomnia or just worrying?)?

Before I start I should probably say my health issues
(anxiety, extra heart beat, and I might have sleep apnea)
the extra heart beat is a result of the anxiety but my cardiologist said it was just 1 beat and it was nothing to worry about just stay away from caffine. And I don't think I have sleep apnea cuz I don't wake up breathless anymore and I don't have symptoms so I think it was just anxiety.

Ok so for the past 4 nights this has been my sleeping pattern
Saturday: 3am-12pm
Sunday: 4am-745am
monday: 430am-1130am
last night: 330am-530am

iv been stressing out about my health so I'm up all night with anxiety. What should I do? And will I beok? I just wanna be ok and I don't feel like I am.

Please answer this (anxiety) ?

Adam Asked: Please answer this (anxiety) ?

So lately iv been very upset and worried and anxiety ridden about my life.
I have anxiety, I have an extra heart beat, and I MIGHT have sleep apnea. And all of this makes me think of death and that I will die.
I fall asleep around 4 and wake up at 11 becase I am so upset and worried that I keep myself up all night.
My extra heartbeat is a result of my anxiety. And I don't think I have sleep apnea cuz the nights of waking up breathless have gone away, my doctor said it could have been a nocturnal panic attack. But I hate living like this. I cry everyday and I'm a 17 year old boy. I just hate this. I take medicine for my anxiety. Any ideas of what to do? Or just tell me I'll be ok and why I'll be ok. Sometimes I just need reassuring, sometimes I go to the doctors just so they can tell me I'm ok

My Wisdom teeth are supposed to be pulled out but… (plz read)!!!!?

Adam Asked: My Wisdom teeth are supposed to be pulled out but… (plz read)!!!!?

I have been put to sleep one time when I was 10 for my hernia surgery (I am 17 presently). And from that day I have had deep insomnia, but luckily, its been slowly going away. The thing is, I still have a great fear of sleeping and being put to sleep. My wisdom teeth should be pulled out, but my doctor said its not necessary.

What are the reasons why I should get them pulled out (all four of them, yup). And is it a giant deal if I don't follow through with the procedure?

I wake up feeling breathless? ( don’t think it’s sleep apnea) ?

Adam Asked: I wake up feeling breathless? ( don’t think it’s sleep apnea) ?

Ok so I have been waking up feeling breathless and when I wake up I have to chatch my breath and my heart is racing and I instantly jump up. This has happened before and I have told my doctor but he didn't have much concern. I had a pulmonary and chest xray and EKG done. The pulmonary came back amazing, the chest xray cane back normal. But the EKG said my nasal passage was fast or something i'm not sure. But I'm kinda worried to sleep….any suggestions? I also have anxiety….

I don't think it's sleep apnea because I don't haw a sore throat when I wake up, and or headaches or any other symptoms.

But today when I was walking I found it very diffictult to breath. And my neck muscles hurt. Is it just my alergies am I sick!

Would you stop using nasal steroid for your child in this situation?

Mom to Leah and Adam Asked: Would you stop using nasal steroid for your child in this situation?

Accidentally posted this in alternative medicine, getting lots of suggestions about wheatgrass…anyway…
So, my son had to see an endocrinologist because he is really small. He has ben growing steadily but very slowly and is on the 1.2 percentile-not 12 but one point two, just to be clear.
He also has terrible allergies. His tests came back normal from the endo and he doesn't seem to have a large growth delay. I got to googling and just now found out his nasal steroid he takes for allergies is associated with delayed growth!!
I think I want to find some alternative ASAP-although I have heard you have to wean kids off nasal steroids-I put in a call to the endocrinologist just to see what she says. I told her he was taking it from the get go so maybe if it was a concern she would have said.
But, I feel like I just don't want him taking it. On the other hand, when his allergies are bad he is so congested he has sleep apnea and snoring which cannot help his growth.
What would you do? I am freaking out!!
