Anxiety when I'm unwell.

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm currently unwell, I have the beginnings of a migraine and a nauseus feeling. My anxiety levels are the worst they've been for ages.

I always get more anxiety when I'm unwell and wondered if this is a common thing amongst people who suffer with anxiety??

    Any change in the norm can make anxiety worse,but it's really all down to the triggers of any individual. Some will be the same, others won't, anxiety is very individual

    It's very normal. It's normal to feel anxious when something is array in your body because you never know what's really going on. Naturally if you worry you will probably jump to the worst conclusion. I am assuming you have suffered from migraines before! As have I. Anxiety and irritability are very common with migraines.

    Ride out the wave, take some good pain meds and stay in a dark room (works for me). Don't be anxious although it's normal to feel that way when you are getting sick. Just as you are feeling sick now soon you will be feeling great like you did yesterday!

    No worries :-)

    Thanks for the response guys, so glad to know it's not just me.

    Anxiety has carried on to tonight even though I don't feel ill anymore.

    Feel like a big panic attack is building up now though so we will see what happens tonight I guess x
