Anxiety is ruining my life

Posted , 3 users are following.

Well my names Jake and I'm 21.. I'm in pretty good shape, and I have a serious case of Health Anxiety, I feel like I'm constantly dying, my heart very rarely beats fast, which makes me think how is this anxiety? I feel like I'm losing it, I've gotten blood work done and they keep telling me it's anxiety, I feel like I've lost feeling with my body, if one little thing feels off I send myself thinking the worst involving my health, I'm just worried about the fact that I don't feel normal, my body doesn't feel the same, I feel numb when these episodes happen and like I'm going to fall over dead, any advice from someone facing this? Thank you.

      Thanks for the reply! And I used to be prescribed lexapro and Zoloft but they made me feel worse on them. So I was taken off and felt better for a while and now I'm right back to where I am now, it's terrible man, I don't feel like myself, it feels like I'm out of body, my body is numb it seems constantly I'm just not myself.

    If you are so healthy and in good shape how do you square of those feelings of death. Over the months I have seen Anxiety sufferers and all seem to be in the first thirty years of live with the greatest number been in their teens to late twenties, I would love to work out why this is the case as honestly you all have a full live awaiting you.

    When it comes to feelings of going to die do you not feel if it was your time to go you could not do anything about it when it is the end, that is it, we see those who left before us and have one big party

    When I was younger I was like you and I would look up to the blue sky and tears would well up in my eyes at the thought that this or next year could be my last.

    Eventually in my mid twenties I understood I was unable to do anything and in fact I began to live more and achieve many different things in life. Now I am a Pensioner and I have had a Chronic Illness for the last thirty years. Since then I have had all the tests not for Anxiety, for my Chronic Disability. I also suffer Depression because of all the pain I suffer.

    Now I enjoy trying different activities and even when disabled I reach out and try to push my condition.

    To be honest, try understanding your body and the tests your GP may have you suffer at your own request that may help you understand risks you need not concern yourself of
