I thought today, I would of met my death bed

So today, after 24 hours awake, I took my Concerta with a rockstar energy drink, I downed this drink like no business.

I started getting muscle twitching around my body, Sharp pain in my chest, My head was tingling, I thought i was close to a heart attack, I took a diazepam and propranolol, It took its effect, I was fine for a hour, But suddenly, I couldn't move, I had pain going down my left arm, Pain in my jaw, Discomfort in my chest, My anxiety was hitting its highest peak, I was sweating, my body started feeling like i was going to have a stroke, I called 999(Emergacy response)

They got to me within 5 minutes as they thought i was having a cardiac arrest.

I was a mess, I even ****** myself as the pain was that bad. i couldn't move, They injected me with a controlled painkiller, Pain was still THERE, I was starting to get a little sedated, The done emergancy bloods, ESG, Blood pressure, Sugar test, Drug test, A full count body // heart tests, There was 7 paramedics here.

Every test come back? Perfect? No problem with my heart, sugar, blood pressure

They took me to hospital for a full body x-ray

NOTHING

Rockstar + Concerta + No sleep caused me to have a psychotic anxiety attack, They explained to me very well how bad high caffeine and concerta can be, I was in shock, All that pain, all it was just my head playing games with me

ANXIETY

Re: I thought today, I would of met my death bed

I've heard some scary stories about those energy drinks, just them by themselves. And to mix them with meds without knowing what would happen? Wow, you probably should have called 911 even earlier. Glad you're okay, though.

That sounds scary. Thanks for sharing. It's a good reminder to be really cautious when mixing stimulants with caffeine and sleep deprivation never helps

Glad you are ok!!

Re: I thought today, I would of met my death bed

Feeling so much better today after a good night sleep and no caffeine, Energy drinks may taste nice, May give you a little buzz with stimulants, But they can also mess you around, It can cause heart defects, high sugar level, even heart attacks, But a very common effect it can give someone who has AD(H)D and take stimulants is really bad anxiety and heart problems, even if its just a coffee, You should never mix these tablets and always be caution with it!

If you ever felt like i did, Stay calm, Get medical attention straight away and just say to yourself "Its anxiety" but most of the time it is anxiety even though it really feels like it isn't, You won't believe the doctors its anxiety but if thats the diagnoses, Trust me, Believe them

Could happen to anybody at any time, Even if you do these things daily, I mean, Not saying your gonna have a problem but one day your body could just give up and give problems due to mixing stimulants

Everyone is different surely, Some people drink vodka, brandy on stimulants have no problems

Re: I thought today, I would of met my death bed

Additional note : I have been consuming large amounts of caffeins since i was 16 years old
Smoking since i was 18 years old
My body is very familiar with coffee, energy drinks

It doesnt force my heart even
Never had high blood pressure problem even
