My name is alex, and for the past months ive struggled with what i think is anxiety, and ive had the worse time with it,
It started off one night as i was napping. i woke up all of a sudden with a very bad headache and diziness. i had never experienced anything like it so i went into a panic. i got a hot-type feeling in my back and my heart started racing. Eventually the night passed, but i had severe headaches for the coming weeks, but even that subzided.
Ever since that night ive felt un easy about my health. Any little pain i assume is something bad and i start feeling sick. My legs feel like noodles, my hands will get ice cold, ill get fainting-type symptoms and ill just need to run outside to get some fresh air.
Ive noticed my neck is really tense all the time and that causes my scalp and evenn the top of my head to hurt.
Even my speech and memory have taken a toll. i feel like i talk to fast and mess up words. as well as being more forgetful.
But even in my worse freak outs ill still get those hot type flashes in my back wich gets me panicking really fast. i start thinking ima faint or something, but eventually i will return back to normal.
My doctor said it was anxiety and prescribed me Amitriptyline but im not sure its helping.,
Has anyone experience the same symptoms? and how did you cope?
Im 19 and this thing is taking away the joy of everyday things.
