24/7 anxiety

Posted , 7 users are following.

I’ve been suffering with anxiety and health anxiety for so many years and I am now 20. I’m always worried about my health even though I’ve gotten checked many times and doctors say I’m normal . For the past few weeks I haven’t felt like myself and my physical anxiety has o LY gotten worse . It’s 24/7 anxiety whether it’s feeling like my breathing is shallow and chest is tight to being aware of my heartbeat and I clearly feel it beating even though I don’t touch my chest. Sometimes I’ll get a weird thumping noise in my ear and other times I feel like something is crawling on the side of my head/ skull. Anyone else ever feel like this? I’ve distanced from friends , I don’t work. I hate going on walks bc they make me feel lightheaded and anxious. I don’t feel normal . I also use my phone a lot more lately and I take my meds on and off so Idk .... I feel helpless

    I have the same 24/7 anxiety symptoms, plus terrible headaches. I am taking meds, too, but not sure if I will back to normal. I am very tired and hurt.

    This is a place that we can share our feelings because we have the same disease. People who don't have this disease they don't understand how bad it is.

    Hi , im sorry you are going this . I pray for you and everyone on here .. Have you had your vitamin levels and electrolytes checked ? Especially vitamin D ? Studies have proven that people suffering anxiety also suffer low vitamin D . I wish you well very soon

    I'm the same way. Any ache or pain I have turns into something deadly. I have the feeling of something crawling on me also, but it's mostly on my face and right on my hairline above my forehead, oddly enough. I'm on Wellbutrin but it doesn't seem to be helping much these days. And I feel helpless also. I do pray a lot. I know several people swear by Behavioral therapy and medication. I hope you find something that calms your anxiety. This is an awful place to be and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    I've also distanced myself from friends and it's torture to even get through work most days. I don't have the feeling of something crawling on my head but it does feel like something is squeezing my head sometimes or like it's going to explode. Walks are hard for me too because I get light headed and faint. Anxiety is awful! Are you currently taking anything? I just started a natural mood/anxiety supplement called Noomost Mood + that's been helping.
