I'm really not sure. Are b12 levels normally checked when a regular blood work is done? I had a physical in January and everything was fine except for vitamin D.

Have they found the cause for your vitamin b12 deficiency?

I think if you have wonky thyroid levels and vit d levels they probably would've run the b12.
No they haven't found out. Just bad at absorbing it from food.

My tsh levels were OK because I'm on thyroid medication but vitamin D has been low for years now.

Do you have problems absorbing other vitamins/minerals from food or just b12?

Re: Anxiety?

No I seem ok otherwise.

When it's low it affects my mood as well. So funny our bodies.

Why thank you.
I have to admit I did research years ago when I was first diagnosed but could use a refresher

I'm seeing my doctor next Friday about an unrelated issue so I'll ask her about this but what do I do til then? It's a terrible feeling, like I could throw up any second

It also happened in November and lasted about 3 days, it went away on its own.

Any OTC pills that I could take? Any other suggestions?
You were having a mild panic attack.
Panic attacks are a self-reinforcing behavior so you do need help with it, a doctor will subscribe stuff and talking to a skill councillor will help. They *will NOT* go away on their own, and will get worse. Fortunately with a bit of training and attention early on, it's much easier to stop that happening.

Night-time is _always_ the worst. Social anxiety can be more acute and obvious, but it is nighttime when our distraction level is the lowest and nothing else is around to help.

Talk to a doctor or assistant about non-medicial remedies and how to deal with accute symptoms.
Generally music is helpful, as are other creative activities. The night/morning attacks can be annoying because there is little resources that can help _you_ specifically.

The actual anxiety/panic attack, resembles more than anything else, a mental bad habit.
Rather than dwelling on the good things, and the creative things we can achieve. The anxious mind grabs at fears and stressors that it can't control, and then like some idiot in a padded cell, it beats the walls of our mind with those worries ... so you can see it is little wonder that we get "exam tummy" from the stress.
The real cure is creating new habits and new experiences that give positive values rather than fear, and teaching our mind to let go of it's death grip on it's concerns. Annoyingly enough for those of us who experience the anxiety, depression, and panic attacks, we have let our mind grab onto things we can't control - and often it is that lack of control that gets us so obsessed about that one concern. Is it a wonder that such thoughts enter a constant spiral that result in our bodies reacting poorly

Re: Anxiety?

I'm feeling better today anxiety-wise but I've completely lost my voice, it's weird.

Plus, I had a weird dream last night, I was in prison and I don't remember what for.
Dream interpretation:

Quote:
Convict
To dream that you are a convict suggests that some situation or relationship is making you feel restricted. You may be experiencing a loss of freedom in some area of your life. Alternatively, the dream represents your feelings of shame and guilt. This dream image is trying to tell you to stop punishing yourself.

To see a convict in your dream indicates that an aspect of yourself is unable to freely express itself.


Guard
To see an armed guard in your dream represents rational thinking. You are being cautious and practical.�The dream may also be on pun that you need to be "on guard" or alert about a situation.
To see a prison guard in your dream suggests that your belief and/or your way of thinking is restricting your own growth. Your fear of making mistakes is preventing you from experiencing life.


Imprisonment
To dream that you are imprisoned suggests that you are feeling trapped or unable to move beyond a certain point. Perhaps your outdated beliefs or old ways of thinking is preventing you from going forward.


Prison
To dream that you are in prison indicates that you are being censored in some area of your life. You feel that your creativity is being limited and that you are not allowed to express yourself.
To see someone else in prison in your dream signifies an aspect of yourself that you are unable to express freely.
To dream that you or someone is released from prison means that you need to make some major changes in your waking life. Eventually, you will overcome your obstacles

Great post. Thanks. My panic attacks were due to my fixation on a EA with coworker. The TAMers have been awesome today giving me advice on that situation. I plan to stop my obsession with the woman, then my need for Zoloft will be gone.

Re: Anxiety?

I had a tough last hour at work Friday. I had a panic attack and was struggling to do my work properly. I would lose track of what I was doing. I would flash to thoughts of the problems I had with the ending of my second marriage. I talked to myself a little. I whistled a little. Yeah, really. I even told myself it would pass, aloud. It did not pass until after I got home. I was okay after I walked out of work. I wasn't perfect and could feel it on my drive home, but I wasn't incapacitated, nor did I lose concentration while driving. I collapsed last night when my head hit the pillow in bed. I slept alright. Dreams of the ex, but they were reasonably mild. Anyway, I hear you Annie. Sucks.

Just a question....by how do you plan on stopping the obsession?
Is she
Why you are on Zoloft? She is toxic if so.

how are you today? Sleep is important.
Hopefully you were off today and could relax and collect yourself.
I've never tried whistling to myself. Will have to try that
