    Hi

    It sounds as though you have restless leg syndrome. ask your doctor, he can give you meds.

      Spot on maureen, I have had restless leg syndrome since I was diagnosed 30 years ago with obstructive sleep apneoa. It is a mild form of epilepsy. Lots of medication to treat it and without side effects. Peter.

    Look you have to realise that this is anxiety, and nothing more. Just think about it, you have had a different ailment everyday. This is because you have become super sensitive to every little thing, and this is what anxiety does.

    We all get little aches and pains everyday, but combine an ache or pain with anxiety the result is what your going through, trust me  I,v been there.

    Over the next few days when something is bothering you, just calmly say to yourself, "I dont need to think of anything that is not important"

    This is why you need little activities to do, these are important and will need your attention, baking, running , walking, swimming ,cycling, house work. just try it over the next few days and note when your mind is concentrating on something your anxiety and the problems it brings disappear, and with practice the longer they will stay away

      The same principle, its your anxiety that makes you think others are looking at you, think about it logically, as someone said in a post recently, the anxiety is illogical it will tell you that everyone is looking at you, logic tells you there not. It will take practice to learn to go with logic, and to walk past a mirror and not look in it, when anxiety makes what we think seem so real, 

      Anxiety is a liar,

      its lying to us every time we give it attention. If you knew someone who just kept lying to you all day everyday, it wouldn't take you long to decide to keep away from that person.

      Have you tried breathing techniques to calm yourself down, I use one where I breath in through nose count to 4 and out slowly through the mouth and repeat only count to 7 time, repeat again and count to 8. then start again 4,7,8. The breathing out slowly calms you spend 5 to 10 mins doing it.

      Counting to 4,7,8 keeps your mind on the breathing, it works

      I use it when Im stressing or stuck in a traffic jam

      Its hard to say as they seem to work after a few months for some people, or that the dose was too low maybe, that said I didnt want to go on a big dose as it would be harder to ween off them, and I was told not to just rely on meds, I had to do some of the work

      Iv been on meds 7 years however I never took them most of the time hence hit a wall last Chrismas and back to square one.

      This year I done it by the book, and got counciling, CBT, as well. Iv pushed myself the last few months especially the last 2 weeks stepping out of my comfort zone, which has helped a lot.
