    I haven't been able to sleep more than 2 hours over the last several nights. My symtpns are:


    I can't concentrate on anything
    vision can go a bit blurry
    dizziness
    I feel my heart beating
    extremely paranoid
    Feel like it's an effort to breathe
    dry mouth
    aches and pains
    tingling sensations
    indigestion
    Knot and upset stomach

    The worst part of this is when i try to sleep. It seems like when I am about to fall asleep my stomach turns. It's like a rush of adrenalin and panic. That goes on for hours until i finally get up and take herbs to calm me down.

    I know this will pass but this time it has lasted far to long.

    My question is, Can anybody else relate? I hate feeling like this. I am so weak right now I can barely walk.

    Jay Mohr talked about very similar symptoms in his book about his SNL years. Good read.

    He started talking ativan or one of those anti-anxiety meds which helped him.
    He still takes them every day.

    I really don't want to start taking shit like that. I want help from natural medicine but i have yet to find something that really works.

    The ones that I found that do help somewhat are:

    5-htp and passion flower.

    I tried Valerian Root but it upsets my stomach to much.

    Not good. I can barely eat. Anxiety causes other health symptoms. Bowel syndrome, and others.

    In august I was in the hospital with a colon infection. (Diverticulitis) Since then i can hardly eat anything. My diet is very limited.

    1) Stop taking drugs!
    2) Go see a doctor
    3) Get some exercise when the doc gives you an all ok.
    4) Eat better
    5) Jerk off less
    6) Go outside and stop wasting time on the computer

    I don't think there's anyone here who can help you with this problem in lieu of your past health issues. You need help from professionals, or you need to get into TM or Vipassana. I used some Vipassana techniques to help me fall asleep when I was having some crazy issues years ago.

    I do admit i do need to do most of the above. However, I don't do drugs. I dont even drink. Drinking and drugs makes it worse.

    Running or cardio but it sounds like you need a prescription for when it gets bad. Anti-depressants can give you the runs though I think. xo

    Your reluctance to take them may come from a bit of prejudice. Do you think it's dangerous, or weak, or would it be a sign you have "mental problems" to take something like that?

    Anxiety and stress have really been given a bad stigma by all the douchebags popping a Zoloft or Valium everytime they buy a new purse that was too expensive.

    Your symptoms could easily be caused by a simple chemical imbalance. Your body should produce chemical A at a certain amount, and chemical B at another, but instead the amounts are off a bit and wreaking havoc on you. You could find out very easily. I would highly recommend it.

    They way I see it, if your tooth hurts, you go to a dentist. Your car breaks, you go to a mechanic. Your head gets fucked up, you go see a specialist in THAT area. Take care and I hope you get better.

    Also, you're not paranoid. We're TOTALLY watching you.

    Again, running helps me...if you don't run, brisk walking, weight lifting or something. Have sex more...
