hi, i had my 2nd baby who is now 6 weeks old. I have had trouble with insomnia and my recovering from the C-section took a good 5 weeks of sitting around doing nothing getting very anxious and frustrated and a little down. Over the weekend i had 2 sleepless nights which were hell, then on the afternoon before the third night i started to get really anxious and had a panic attack, which I've never had before! it was god awful as anyone whose had one would know.went to the doc next day and said i have Post natal anxiety. i cant believe it! i have always had sound mental health and been a relatively chilled out person, maybve a bit of a worry wart sometimes. Yesterday i felt pretty good once i hauled myself out of bed but i could feel that the tight hot pain in my chest was being kept at bay. as soon as i started to think about getting some sleep i could feel myself getting anxious again. but then today i had another panic attack that lasted about 15 minutes. its hard to stay positive about what this means. i have been put on Zoloft and given sleeping tablets. Does this mean, even if it does go away, that i will have anxiety for ever? how long does it take Zoloft to work? its like I've seen a new side to life and can so sympathise with any sufferers where before i didn't understand.
