Hi to all, I hope you are all well
Yesterday I went back to my GP for a follow up of my meds and she diagnosed me with Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. I wrote down everything I have experienced from the beginning until now and deliberately avoided my anxiety so that it wouldn't detract from my symptoms. This was quite hard for me, as sometimes dismissing things as anxiety can bring relief rather than having to face up to a potentially real issue.
Anyway my GP explained how each symptom matched with my condition and why (how it causes that feeling and sensation, etc.)
I have been told to continue with my medication and to return in December if things are no better and she will prescribe something else.
I have to accept what it is now and stop chasing tumour fears, so I have come for some advice.
How can I tackle this? Some days, like today, it is particularly bad and my anxiety grows especially when it effects my eyes.
I find myself fidgeting, hands grow clammy, mind begins to either race or convince myself that I am losing my faculties. In my panick I feel I am losing memory, losing awareness etc. After it passes I feel better and I think this is because I still panick over some undiagnosed brain tumour. I have to accept the reality of what I have and I feel I am..I almost feel these are residues of my anxiety.
How can someone with severe anxiety deal with these symptoms? I cant keep feeling like I'm going to lose control of myself.
I am going to mention this to my counsellor also but I wanted some feedback from fellow anxiety sufferers.
