Anxiety

Posted , 3 users are following.

So I was feeling fine this morning, then all of a sudden the back of my neck started feeling weird. But even before that my heart is feeling weird and I get a pain around my chest on the left side. Sometimes a sharp or even burning sensation. Then I get light headed, and my legs feel a little weak. Also I shake. I wish for everyone and myself this could all just stop. Does anyone have any coping skills they use to help them?

    After weeks of going thru all that I finally went to doctor and was diagnosed with panic disorder. Never have had it in my life im almost 32. I am currently taking medication. Day 13. Having side effects and it does increase anxiety at  the beginning. Which then causes all those things all over. Have you been to your doctor? I also started therapy las night

      My first Therapy session last night went really well. I think it's def gonna be beneficial in my recovery from this. If it really gets bad enough, I would def ask them about putting you on something. I mean I really hate the fact that I have to take something, but there are just some things I can't do on my own and need some help. Like I said I'm only on day 13 but From everything I've read on here and what my doctor has told me, it's not gonna last forever. So I'm doing my best to stay positive! Don't sit on it too long, it will get really bad. Do something about it now!

      I'm glad that you're persevering with the medication - lots of people get this in the early days of taking meds, but by six weeks you should be starting to feel better. If you're NOT feeling better, there are loads of other meds your doctor can prescribe.

      And I'm very happy that you started therapy! Please come back to this forum and tell us how things are going for you. love Tess

    Have you seen you doctor about all thee symptoms, Stephanie? It's very important that you get everything checked.

    I'm guessing that you have, since you're asking for coping skills.

    Try to distract yourself with music, going for a walk, singing, reaading a really good book - and if your doctor has already told you that you have anxiety disorder,  ask for therapy. It seems to be the best option for most sufferers of this horrible anxiety. Please stay with us and tell us how things are going. love Tess
