    Default work yourself up

    Hello all!
    Please help me find alternatives for the phrazal verb in red:

    Calm down! You shouldn't work yourself up into such a state.

    I'd like to know what other phrazal verbs can be used in such situation.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Lash oneself into a state/a rage/fever
    Drive (e.g. Drive oneself to distraction; Drive over the edge)
    These are not strictly speaking phrazal verbs, but they're alternatives alright.
