Anxiety nearly all the time

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've constantly got anxiety symptoms. I put off going somewhere incase I feel really bad there which I have in the past. I have upped my dose of Sertraline from 50mg to 100mg due to anxiety coming back. Only been on 100mg for 3 days. I'm hoping it will change soon. When I went on 50mg 3 years ago it did help a lot. I feel weak,pressure in head and burning feelings. Fed up. Will it go soon if I think positive?

    What anxiety symtoms do you constantly have? And I think that positive thinking helps a lot with people who have anxiety. The more negative you are, the more problems you'll think about. Hopefully your medicine with kick in. I took Zoloft 2 years ago and it made depressing thoughts go away.

      You are right positive thinking is the way. I constantly have pressure headaches which are terrible. I can be so weak,burning feeling in face and sometimes tingly all over. I try to think positively that the feelings can't hurt me and to go on doing my things. It's hard though. I'm hoping the up in dose will help soon.

    Me too, the levels of anxiety vary but to some degree they're always there. The "butterflies" feeling annoys me, because it makes me feel constantly like something bad will happen. I get pressure headaches and jaw aches, dizziness, shortness of breath, weak feeling, fatigue, spacey feeling, hot/cold sweats.

    It's just awful, but mine has improved and that's what I have to keep telling myself, if it's got a bit better, then it can and will get even more better!

      Yes I get all those symptoms. What I'm trying to do is go somewhere not to far away and build it up and try to push past symptoms. I was able to do this when I went on 50mg of Sertraline . Your attitude is right.

    Hi Michelle,

    I have the same problem. Have you done hormone test? I am doing it this week to see my cortisol levels.

    Definitely positive thinking helps as well as excercise and nutrition. Stay away from caffeine and smoke.

    I have also realised that yoga and pilates help a lot to reduce anxiety and stress disorders. If you do it on a daily basis you'll realise how helpful it is.

    Cheers
