Suffer from trembling hands, palpitation. High sugar levels. Have suicidal thoughts. Need help

I am a female of 48 years age . At times my hands start trembling and I get the feeling as if my heart is running very fast. This happens only for a few moments and I become alright in a couple of minutes. I have normal BP and Thyroid. However blood sugar fasting remains around 110 to 117 since last 10 years and PP sugar is always in normal range. My mind gets triggered to a depressive stage very fast to a level wher I try to commit suicide. Have tried atleast 20 times in the last 20 years but was counselled and saved by husband. My friends consider me very sweet and humble but I start getting extremely negative thoughts as soon as I hear someone even routinely commenting adverse remarks regarding me. These thoughts keep building up leading to a stage where I want to commit suicide. So I have 2 problems - 1. My hands tremble at times (2-3 times a year) with feeling of my heart running like a vehicle engine. 2. Getting emotional triggers leading to suicidal tendencies. - from India

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

The symptoms of trembling of the hands, rapid beating of the heart, etc. appear to be anxiety-related. You also seem to be having a problem with controlling your emotions and have engaged in self harming behaviour multiple times. Such emotional instabilities and self-harming behaviour could be indicative of a personality disorder, probably a borderline personality disorder.

I would recommend that you see a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are good psychological therapies which can help you control your emotions and your dysfunctional thoughts, and teach you better coping and stress-management skills. Sometimes, medication may also be beneficial in such cases.

Wish you all the best.

Hi there ~

Thank you for the information you have provided. You seem to have panic attacks and depression. I feel like you need to see a therapist as soon as you can and if you have thoughts about hurting yourself which are passive please seek the help of friends or family and make calls to reach out. There may also be local resources in your area where you might find help solving your problems that can make your suicidal thoughts go away. I am not in a position to let you what they are since I do not know your entire history. I hope you also visit with a psychiatrist who will be able to help with medications.

Take care and have a lovely day !
