Gena Posted November 12, 2005 Report Share Posted November 12, 2005 Here is my experience of Adrenaline Surges...would appreciate your experiences too:1. My adrenaline surges only happen in the middle of the night or wee hours of the a.m.2. I get very tachy and then I can feel the adrenaline surging through my body, my feet sweat profusely and then a few minutes later my body shakes all over and my teeth someitmes chatter, even though I'm not cold.3. The length of time this lasts can very from 15 mins. to up to an hour. After the episode I often do get cold.4. Sometimes I also experience nausea, bad chest pain and numbness in my left arm during the tachycardia (yes, all the signs of a heart attack!!)My question to those who also have adrenaline rushes...What are your symptoms and when do you have them?Can you identify what triggers these episodes?Have you ever had a doctor explain them to you?P.S. I think it was Persephone's post that said her doctor refers to these episodes as anoxic seizures. I've never heard of this but her doctor said the shaking /tremors were the body's way of getting blood to the brain. I am not sure if our adrenaline rushes are the same thing as these seizures. I don't feel like I'm having a true seizure when this happens.Thanks,Gena Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
