Hello,
Is there any stress or mental tensions that you are going through? Also has there been any palpitations or trembling?
You seem to be going through acute anxiety. Try and find out the cause, discuss it with someone whom you can trust and help you sort out the problem. Try meditation or breathing exercises which would help you relax. Divert your mind by doing things that you enjoy like going out for the weekend, pursuing your hobbies, listening to some relaxing music or catch up on a comedy film.

If it does not subside, I would suggest you to visit your family physician or a homeopath who can help in identifying the cause and suggest appropriate medications.

Hi, I m a 21 year old girl. I haven t felt hungry since I was 13. I don t have a problem with food, I eat normally, but it s because I like to eat, not because I m hungry. I m neither fat nor thin, just normal and perfectly healthy. But like I said, I never ever feel hungry. I tested myself, like going for a long time eating nothing, and still, no hunger. Every time I ve asked a doctor about it, they would just say You must eat , but I already do... Nothing seems to explain why I m never hungry. It s not a bad thing I guess, but something could be wrong... Do you have any insight?

most nights i seem to have a problem sleeping as my heart seems to be beating too fast and once ive set my mind on it it doesn t stop. to begin with i had panic attacks as i smoke marajuana and im quite a stressed individual but now my chest hurts regularly, and when i try fall asleep at night i ll be woken up all of a sudden struggling for breath. even after a walk or just going out with some friends my heart starts to pound, i m really really worried, if i know i can t die because of it i d be so much more relaxed but i m sure it s something more than a panic attack.

my heart is pounding really hard. it s been doing it for about two days now. i have had panic attacks, it doesn t feel like a panic attack. it s kind of scaring me. should i go to the hospital or is it more than likely just a new kind of panic attack that i haven t experienced yet?

I have been having a tightness in my chest and a feeling of heaviness for about 2 hours now. It also feels a little tight in my throat and I feel as though I cannot get as much air in my lunges as usual. This has happened to me before and last time was a few weeks ago when I was on holiday... could this be something to do with the heat? Just before the feeling came on I was eating chocolates - I m wonder if this has affected my sugar levels or blood pressure perhaps. I am trying not to panic as I am wondering is this a panic attack without me realising its one?? Thank you for reading, hope you can help . Sara

I have been taking vyvanse for years now and since i have been in college sometimes i stay up all night to study, sometimes days at a time. I usually take 40mg in the morning and around 5 take another 40 and then around midnight take another 40 and repeat the same thing the next day.I experience a lot of the symptoms of overdose such as stomach pains, hallucinations, rapid heart beat, anxiety, trembling, etc. I did not know that it was so bad for you and i just figured those symptoms were from not sleeping. I have been doing this for almost 3 years now but since i have learned about it i have cut back but i am still nervous about the damage already caused. Are there any long term effects to overdosing frequently?
