Constant, daily anxiety!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have suffered with recurrent anxiety and panic attacks for the last 8 years but recently I have had constant, everyday, all day symptoms. As of now, I am having dizziness/lightheadedness, pressure at the top of my stomach and throat, racing heart and palps, cold, clamy hands and feet, what feels like body zaps and a rush of hotness through my body when I feel my anxiety increase. I dont have an over stressful life but I am planning my wedding, thats 2 months away, on VERY limited finances, struggling constantly with financial issues, I work for a doctor who is verbally abusive, which makes me dread work daily. The only time I get relief from my anxiety is when I am sleeping, which I cant do all day. My anxiety symptoms are always changing and I am quite the hypocondriac when it comes to my health, esp my heart. I had an extensive cardiac workup done, EKG's, 48 hour heart monitor, Echo, and blood tests, about a year ago but this still doesnt ease my mind. I had some blood work done late last summer which came back okay, just mildly anemic (I take Iron.) I feel like I am fighting a losing battle every single day and I dont know how to cope. I am scheduled to establish with a new PCP on 3/7/16 but every day this just seems further and futher away!
