Re: Anxiety Before Bed
Well on top of everything about not being able to fall asleep last night, I started to worry about my medication. I usually take a .5mg Xanax XR before bed and that usually makes me a little tired. My doc also gave me .25mg Xanax regular pills I can take on top of the .5mg XR ones if things get bad. Even the combination of both pills last night did not help very much. I don't really think this is a tolerance thing because I just started taking the Xanax and I try my best to only take it when needed. I suppose with any drug, if you are gonna get worked up, you are gonna be worked up, unless you are taking a huge dosage of something.
This has to be anxiety related. It didn't start until the beginning of the week when I went to the doctor for a possible kidney infection and he said I should watch my blood pressure. Since then I have checked my blood pressure and it has been normal. I only feel/hear my heartbeat when I lay down to go to sleep and it feels irregular. It's like thump, thump, thump, flutter, thump, thump, thump, flutter, etc. My mom thinks I just need to chill out. She says I've been to the ER/doctor many times in the last couple months(I had tonsillitis twice in the month of Feb.) and if I had some sort of heart problem they would have caught it by now. I mean when I had my last panic attack in March, the EMT's brought one of those little EKG machines and my test came out fine. I need to chill.
