Anxiety?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello I'm Mitchel

I just wanted to share my story with you guys to see if maybe I have anxiety or something else.

Since June of this year I started to get anxiety. It all started with shortness of breath and it never left. I have severe panic attacks since then. My hands will lock up and I would go numb everywhere. I guess I hyperventilated. Well that lasted for a few months. But about 2 months my vision started to act weird like I was detached from myself. So I went on and tried not to freak out as much but 3 weeks ago my vision just took a toll on me and I started freaking out and feeling like I was going to die. Since then my symptoms have been getting worst. I started losing my appetite constant fear that I will get a heart attack or have every disease I can think off. Today my legs felt like they wanted to give out and I was in constant fear all day. I had no break of just thinking I was going to die and feeling weird. Sometimes I have a hard time swallowing my own silica but I can eat and drink fine. I shake and get nervous fast. I fear that I'm going to drop dead from a heart attack any second now. I had ekgs done and my heart looks great. My blood pressure was 116/65 my pulse 90 my oxygen 100 my temp 97. Is this anxiety? Can someone out there relate? I feel like I'm all alone and no one understands my symptoms . they prescribed me Prozac haven't taken it until 4 days ago. I can't keep living like this

    I have the same thing with vision/detached.

    I'm working on not letting it have meaning, so that it will go away

    Definitely sounds like anxiety..consider anti anxiety meds prescribed by a doctor along with the antidepressant. My son has very bad anxiety and it took the combination of the 2.He is much netter now.Also a psycologist would probably be much better at getting the right dosage for your situation then a gp.Psycologist told my son that dose gp prescribed was like trying to put out a forest fire with a watering can.I hope you feel much better soon.
