I have a history of anxiety and depression, but about two weeks ago I had back and neck pain and some pain in my head and felt a bit giddy. My doctor told me this was muscular and down to the way I sit at work and the position I sleep in.
Before I saw the doctor, the situation made me constantly cry, seek reassurance from my mum, I couldn't concentrate, I couldn't eat and I always felt sick. I googled the symptoms of a brain tumour (I know I shouldn't have!) and somehow I convinced myself that's what I've got.
A day after seeing the doctor I started to feel weakness down my left leg and my arm.
I was an emotional wreck and still am. I saw the doctor again as soon as I could and she believes the symptoms are stemming from my anxiety and she's started me on citalopram, which I am pleased about.
I am trying to calm myself down and tell myself the symptoms aren't there but I just wanted to know if anyone else has developed symptoms that aren't really there from anxiety?
