Ever sense I can remember I have problem that I believe to be an anxiety attack. It is always the same situation. Mainly at night say I am laying in bed and I hear something in my house I will freeze, unable to move a single finger or udder a single word. So far, luckily, nothing has happened. But I am scared that maybe someone does break into my house and being unable to move from the sound, I would be stuck in my room, and if he/she were to enter I would be defenseless, either unable to move and be injured or worse. Or my anxiety may get so bad that I would faint/pass out. I'm scared for my safety. Anyone have similar problem? Anyone know of a treatment? Anyone know what the disorder is called? Please help its been over 10 years going now and I don't know what to do.

  • Hey there,I have the same thing even dreams that I am being chased and im trying to run and I can't move ...I think that this just may be in your head and its very unlikely that you will be broken into I worry bout the same thing honestly I think everyone does..well at one stage or another plus if the situation was to really arise then I definitely think that you would be able to move so try not to worry bout it and when you are having these thoughts just change them to something more positive....

  • You have anxiety. Go to the Doctor, get on some antidepressants and enjoy your life again.

  • It is normal to experience anxiety from time to time, because anxiety is a natural response to stress situations. However, when anxiety becomes so intense and long-lasting like in your case, it can develop into a disorder.Important thing you should remember is that anxiety can be treated. So, I think you should go to the doctor and see if you need a treatment. There are many medications, therapies and alternative treatments.Maybe you will find this information helpful:http://www.originaldrugs.com/health-library/anxiety.shtmlhttp://www.healthassist.net/conditions/anxiety.shtml
