I am a 28 year old male and like all of you here on this forum i have very bad anxiety. I have been getting these following symptoms lately, although some of these issues having been happening several years now, pain in chest, sharp head pains, pain down both sides of body, dizzyness (feeling like i am going to faint, especially in supermarkets or shopping malls where there are lots of people) ringing in ears, floaters in eyes, palpatations, etc and my anxiety issues are making me believe they are serious and potentially life threatening symptoms although i am sure/hope it is just my anxiety and although the pains i get are most certainly real they are most likely being exaggerated and made to appear like there are bigger issues (oncoming heart attack, ect,) due to my anxiety/state of mind.
I have been taking anti-depressants for about 10 years now, i am currently on mertazapine. I feel the medication is not working at all. I may as well not be taking it. I do think that all my symptoms are due to anxiety and nothing worse, and i am sure if i were to see a doctor about these issues he would confirm this, but i do have occassions where i doubt this and start panicking thinking i have major health issues, and i find myself constantly worrying about having a heart attack or brain aneurysm. It's a terrible feeling.
My question to anyone who is going through this or has been through this but no longer has anxiety/depression, has there been anything at all that you have previously tried with success or that you are currently doing/using that is taking away these anxiety issues? I am willing to try absolutely anything to help myself, as i am well and truly sick of feeling this way and it is ruining my quality of life. I am a 28 year old male, turning 29 very soon and missing out on my prime years in life due to my massive anxiety issues and i desperately need to find a way to stop my anxiety, and to be able to live my life like i deserve to without having these stupid anxiety issues holding me back. I appreciate any feedback, and if you wish to private message me you are most welcome to.
