    Hello everyone, I’m a 20 yr. old male. I stopped drinking 25 days ago and went through withdrawal anxiety and all that fun stuff but that was almost 4 weeks ago. I feel like I’m in pretty decent health. . . I exercise pretty regularly and try to eat right. Though since I stopped drinking I have had a lot of trouble sleeping and haven’t gotten a good nights sleep in quite a bit.

    The past week or so I’ve been getting daily panic attacks, where my heart rate will change and I get overcome with a feeling that something is wrong and I’m going to die. . . I can sometimes feel my heart skip a beat or drop or beat out of rhythm or something in the middle of them and I start thinking all sorts of bad thoughts. I start to feel warm or clammy I guess. . despite the temperature being pretty low inside my house. The feeling seems to go away within an hour but it’s been happening at least once a day. And the past couple of days I’ve been in fear pretty much just waiting for it to happen again. I have no idea what triggers it and it’s starting to plague my life.

    Has anyone else experienced something similar? This just started happening to me like a week ago and other than withdrawal anxiety I’ve never felt anything like it. Really starting to scare me. . . I’m getting a checkup with an ekg and stuff on Friday to make sure there’s nothing wrong with my heart, because at this point I just don’t know. . . I have a feeling it’s more mental than anything but the feeling just sucks so bad. . . Does anyone have any tips to share or anything to try and beat these feelings and thoughts? I appreciate it!
