Hi all.. I am a senior nursing student entering my 3rd semester of the ADN program. Recently, I have been developing severe panic attacks and anxiety to the point that it occurs out of no where for no reason that I can come up and leads to hot flash/sweating, dizziness and this immense feeling that I need to get out of wherever I am to chill out. I have experienced anxiety in the past as does everyone from time to time, made it through a whole year of clinicals in hospital settings with a couple minor incidents of feeling worked up but regained composure rather quickly. Now, I am not feeling like nothing is helping me and that these are coming out of the blue. I will be starting classes again in a month and I have been stressing tremendously about that because I fear the unknown so much so maybe the stress is triggering it? I’m reaching out bc I have no clue what to do and I’m wondering if there is anyone else who has experienced this and if so what you did to get though. I feel defeated and completely discouraged as if I am going to be a total failure if I continue to let this anxiety and panic to control me. I loved my first year of nursing school, I felt on top of the world some of things I said I’d never do, I did and now it’s like a lost cause trying to find that feeling. Thanks for the help and sorry for the lengthy post- first timer here 🙂

Have you talked to your PCP about this?  They are usually able to help with the basic anxiety meds to get you started and see how they work.
