Alcohol, anxiety, shakes

Posted , 2 users are following.

I've attempted to quit drinking many times. I am now 18 days alcohol free. I'm experiencing many frustrating side effects but the worst is anxiety and shaking. I thought by now it would lessen. I'm wondering if this is my normal anxiety and that drinking just covered it up. I feel constant anxiety ALL OVER. I work in the health care field and just had my medIcation distribution test where my supervisor watched me do a med pass. My hands shook so bad that I had to keep apologizing and almost didn't finish. My doctor gave me a beta blocker. Is anyone familiar with it helping with anxiety and shaking? I'm so embarrassed with this condition.
