I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks since I was 12 or so (now I’m 23), and after a severe attack (that induces tears and great fear) I become VERY sleepy and sometimes fall asleep out of exhaustion.

Is this common? And what causes it? The adrenalin rush?

Yes, it is common. What happens is in that time of panic, your body has an increased metabolic demand and thus your body requires energy to facilitate it. Your body gives off cortisol to provide energy and during the panic attacks your body depletes its glycogen (primary energy) stores. When your panic attack is over, your body is drained of its primary energy source and thus you are tired.

Charnell, you’re way ahead of the game. Many people just cower in fear, you’re actually analyzing your behavior and symptoms. The adrenaline rush comes from the fear, our body thinks it has to escape from something dangerous. The sleepiness comes from the adrenaline crash, which is kinda like a sugar crash.

I remember the first time I had an anxiety attack I was in high school. I didn’t know what it was at the time. My palms got so sweaty and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. It happened right there in the gym locker room, when Coach told us to take a shower. I didn’t know why I felt like that, but everything in my body just told me to leave. I put my clothes back on and went home. I even skipped my last 3 classes, because that’s how bad it was.

I tried a couple programs online when therapy and meds started getting expensive. And there are some horrible ones out there. The worst one I tried was call the panic attack solution, what a complete waste of cash! I found this one product, and I hoped with my heart it wasn’t a scam, and guess what? It really helped me out a lot. I posted a link to the product review.
