Hi, I'm a 17 year old male who has been told since the age of 14 I have anxiety. Since then I have developed a range of physical symptoms including heart palpitations, racing heart, sore heads, forehead pressure and recently it has been severe numbness In my arms, legs and most of all my face. I have a severe obsession about my health and I freak out at any pain whatsoever. When I get this numbness I honestly feel I am having a stroke and if my heart rate exceeds 80 bpm I think there is something seriously wrong with me. I check my pulse around every hour too. All the professionals I have seen including my most recent psychiatrist say these physical symptoms are caused by anxiety. I have recently started quetiapine (anti psychotic) and I just don't know what to think. Any ideas?
