Constant state of panic!!! feeling terrible please help!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been suffering from OCD for about 14 years.  Health anxiety with symptoms that tend to take over.  For a few months it might be my heart, or my stomach, or my head.  It consumes me every waking minute of my life.  I am in therapy, and I know whats going on, but I can't control it at times.  Lately it's been chronic tension headaches. I feel it in my neck and shoulders.  I read about it, talk about it, research it.  I drive myself crazy and have tremendous anxiety.  I am a stay at home Mom, both my kids are in school.  I started taking Nortriptyline this past Sunday, and I already feel a relief all over my head and neck.  But, in some sick way I still feel nervous and anxious.  If I get the slightest twing, I panic.  Picturing myself bed ridden with a horrible headache.  I am so upset that I can't get a hold of myself.  Please someone give me some advice, this is so depressing.
