a few months ago. I was casually watching tv an episode on the worst mothers who killed their kids, abused them and the worst things they can do and being a mother of a 3 yr old girl. I at first didn't take it to heart thinking it is just a show. Later that night I ate late and drank a cup of warm milk. While i was going to sleep i started having anxious thoughts about someone breaking in and taking my child away what would i do? (my husband works at night) so i started feeling anxious...so soon i got it out of my mind and tried to think about other things. I still couldn't sleep. I then felt like my tongue was going limp and was sliding inside my throat, immediately i got up and my heart started racing. I felt like throwing up but i couldn't i tried and tried but i couldn't. I then finally go a grip and called my husband and he came home. I went to sleep. Later the next day i still kept feeling like my heart was racing. I went to the ER and they told me it was Acid reflux, as my nutrition was bad and i was putting my health on the back seat to tend to my daughters needs. I was a working woman and i gave it up to raise my daughter. But that incident shook me up and I am scared of every little physical symptom. I went to a ob/gyn she told me i had pcod. I am currently on birthcontrols. I still feel anxious. I want to know how to get over this. I got scared because i felt i was incapable of saving my child and more than that fear i was scared of what was happening to my tongue. If anybody has a suggestion pls tell me.
Let me add that i have been feeling extremely irritated, anxious and emotional 6 months prior to this incident. ever since i stopped breastfeeding my daughter at 2 1/2. hence i went to a gynae.
The preacher at our church tells me i need to put my faith in God and move on and forget the incident as it was just an out of the blue incident.
I lived alone for many years going to college, i had a c-section and lots of other financial hurdles but i was never scared but this incident shook me up.
Please help, any suggestions to deal with it will help.
