I wake up most days now covered in sweat that smells like vinegar not like bo I've put it down to stress hormones acting up because when I wake up for the first few hours it usually feels like I'm there in the morgue it's with years and trial and error that I've learned how to use the gym as a crutch instead of weed in my town I can't get good therapy because I still smoke I've got diagnosed at age 13 I'm 24 now I have no friends left nobody seems to understand they say it's all in my head ect I don't understand why I was sent over thinking back I've never seen anything like it and I witnessed a car crash that resulted in deaths I seen inside the car at age 5 never had any effect on me but seeing your best friend and sister and sometimes mother like that changes you forever I'll never be the same I use a light blanket usually and this keeps the sweat's away but I'm in Ireland and I need to use a heavier blanket and this is causing it to come back I look normal maybe even more able than some people Physically but mentally I think I'm that shook to the core rocked 13 year old in that room with my sister and it's hard because I'm starting to get more and more out of touch with reality that sometimes it feels like maybe I died and this is a coma or something with everything going on it kind of makes sense has anyone had these problems for over a decade and gotten better eventually?

Are you in therapy?

I do sweat a lot at night in acute phases of stress but it wouldn't last more than a few weeks and it's not every single night.

For what you're saying it seems you're experiencing repeated and rather severe panic attacks, even for PTSD I think it's quite unusual to have this nearly constantly for 10 years on

Would be good for you to go through your GP and seeing what's going on. Not everything is psychiatric and it can be a combination. You can have PTSD and hormonal imbalance and whatnot. And the appropriate medication really can help to take the edge off the worst symptoms.

I hope you get help soon!

It's only when I sleep in heavy blankets but it's every single night I sleep in the blankets then wakeing up in sweat and not being able to move brings on flashbacks I'm gonna go to the gp on Monday I never even thought about it not being mental I've gotten used to it as a teen I had plastic sheets on the bed

After years of drug treatments I finally got referred to a truma specialist I start on Thursday with her looking forward to this so much hopefully this is what I needed all along


I appreciate your reply honestly never thought it could be Physical
