Firstly thanks for taking the time to read this and apologies if I sound stupid.
4 months ago I was diagnosed with having anxiety which in turn has escalated to panic attacks, stress and now depression (still not sure if it's some form of post natal depression (my little one is 16 months)).
My anxiety was diagnosed primarily on the symptoms I get - fast heart, pins and needles, difficulty breathing (like I can't seem to exhale) visual migraines, shakes and the fact the tests I've had done have all come back ok.
Well these symptoms I've tried to deal with and not take the medication I've been prescribed (fluoxetin and propananol). Partly because of the side effects, partly because I don't want to rely on medication to make me feel better and party because of my little one.
Today though Ive got other symptoms - bad pain in the top part of my back near my shoulder blade as if I've pulled the muscle, I'm extremely tired and I feel dizzy/lightheaded.
Do you think these are linked to my anxiety or whether I need to see my doctor or a chiropractor?
Sorry if it sounds stupid but I get worried when I have things wrong with me.
