I wrote on here a couple of days ago that I think I may have anxiety. I went to my doctor today and told her all my symptoms and didn't mention anxiety (because I wanted to see if she would come up with that conclusion on her own) and sure enough she told me I had anxiety. She felt my back and told me that was truly shocked at how tense my muscles were and said that she thinks I'll need physical therapy just to get my neck back to where it was. I'm trying to come to terms with the fact that this is indeed anxiety because of all the physical symptoms I have so I'm going to list the long list of symptoms I have and then you tell me if you have similar ones. I've had medical problems for over a year so I'll start from my first symptoms.
About a year ago I had
Shortness of breath
Books (haven't had one in a while but was getting them all the time)
Stomach pain(thought I had ulcers these symptoms have also gotten much better and now I just get bloaded)
Now my new symptoms that started about 3 weeks ago and all came down on me at oncw and literally had me feeling like I was dying
Heart palpitations ( these would only last about 10 secs and it happened about once a day)
Feeling like something was swollen in my neck
Pins and needles feeling everywhere
Extreme itching with no rash ( this symptom has literally been driving me mad)
Brain fog (had this bad today I kept dropping things and it felt likw my brain was not working)
Feeling in my head like a balloon is inflating
Then like right now my head will Bob around like it's to heavy for my neck.
I don't know to me this seems like a lot to just be anxiety but I guess it makes sense because I have high levels of stress in my life and in my job like way more then what someone should be dealing with so I can understand how I would develop this I'm just having a hard time excepting that my symptoms are just anxiety.
