High pitched piercing scream noise in my head
Hi, I'm only 13 years old and I am struggling hard with anxiety right now. I drank wayyyy to much caffine one day and my head hurt, my mind started racing and my thoughts were LOUD!!! NEVER EVER DRINK CAFFINE IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH ANXIETY! It was as if someone was screaming a high pitched squeal in my head and it just wouldn't stop! It's happening to me right at this moment too, but I'm okay with it now because I know I'll get through it. I have a therapist and I spoke with her today. If you almost constantly have a high pitched screaming in your head do not panic. It's just a normal anxiety and depression symptom. It still scares me quit a bit sometimes and to cope with it here's what I do: I go out running! I know most people aren't runners and thats okay, I've noticed walking also is a really big help. Exercise in general will do so much! The symptoms won't go away after just one time of exercising, it takes a while and you really need to commit to it. I also noticed that just being around people and laughing and making myself have fun and get my mind off things really helps. It could also be hormones thats causing this. I've been almost severly depressed lately and this site has given me so much hope! I also noticed just talking about it helps. You may be ashamed of your anxiety but DO NOT BE ASHAMED! Millions of people struggle with it. And if you're really scared that you might need meds for it, dont be. From what I've learned during the past 4 weeks after all this crazy anxiety stuff happened, there's millions of ways to stop anxiety. Something might work for one person that might not work for another. You just have to have patience and commit to it and have hope. I know some days you might feel down and feel hopelessness of not ever getting back to your normal self but you will. And to be honest, I have those times where I feel hopelessness and say to myself I'll never get better so if theres anyone out there that also has that loud piercing noise in their mind sometimes, please post about it on this site. It really helps me to know I'm not the only one going through this. And remember never give up, theres always hope. God allows these things to happen for a reason.
