Default does anyone else get tired after a panic attak?

Today has been rough. I did'nt get to take my pill till 2pm and I ave been a nervous wreck all day long. I had a really bad panic attack about an hour ago and now I am so tired I can't hardley hold my eyes open and I am shakey and dizzy as all get out. Does anyone else have this or is it just me?

I get that too T-Bear. I also get really bad headaches afterwards.

It can be a normal response of your central nervous system. When you experience the panic/anxiety and are in the fight, flight, or flee mode, your body's neurotransmitters become depleted and out of whack for a bit. It sounds like residual effects of your attack and it may just take your system a little longer to re-calibrate.

I'm sorry you had an attack......they really do suck.

Hang in there.

Oh h e l l!!!! I am like a limp dishrag after a panic attack. Sometimes it may even take me a couple or more days to get over. I doubt we are alone in this at all Tbear. Panic attacks are very draining!

Same here, the attacks drain me like I feel like a zombie I'm so tired afterwards. Almost how you are really tired after you cry for a long time, just that deep down exhausted feeling.

I sleep like a corpse after I have a panic attack. It's just so exhausting. Sleep is amazingly good for you though, espescially when your so stressed/anxious. If you can sleep, I would do it if I were you. It'll help you feel better.

I'm exhausted after a severe panic attack and all I can do is lie down. I think it is my body's was of reconnecting.
