Don't quite know what to do

Posted , 3 users are following.

Just as I thought I was coping very well everything seems to have gone out the window had a sore throat bad neck when I joined here it helped and I knew I was suffering anxiety and things seemed ok but my throat kills today and my neck does and I'm checking for lumps all the time

Went to see my own doctor after a very long wait 2 weeks and all I mentioned was the change of life and that I'm not coping well

Not sure I want to through this all again feeling scared. My husbands Feb up with it so I can't talk to Him

Any suggestions

    Hi Scruffy,

    Could it be overactive thyroid?: Better tell Doc all of your symptoms,amxiety can and will cause all untold problems,however I've nev er had anything like that really .

    Again I would suggest scouring through all the forums for related symptoms especially with regard to change of life,because there I can't help you being male,but my wife was subject to many problems with her change which seemed to last a long time.

    Sorry I can't be of more assistance,but check out those forums,just typ in your symptoms on your browser and work from there.

    Good luck Malc

    Hi, Scruffy

    You should have told the GP everything but I know how you forget everything,perhaps if you go again write it down don't be embarrassed they have seen it before my daughter is clinical specialist and tells all her patients to do that when they come to clinic.Try not to focus on your throat because you know our old friend anxiety will kick in worse and don't google.Have you tried to gargle with mild salt water or TCP and suck some lozenges and keep drinking also honey and lemon.Hopefully just a blip let us know howi it goes

    Love

    Joan

    Hi Scruffy,

    |Never alone on here, I started this particular topic before Christmas and my how its grown, if we advertise products perhaps we could get some money,although patient..co.uk might not allow it, however hope you feel a little better, and keep on ranting and raving even, it gets it out of your system.

    Keep in touch!

    LOL Malc xx

    Hi Scruffy and all,

    I must admit with all the anxiety I've had I've never had throat trouble like you seem to have,odd really,but of course anything can happen with this thing.

    You should see the doctor,when you're suffering as you are,help ease your mind,make it easy on yourself,I wish you well.

    Best wishes Malc

    Hey scruffy,I'll tell you something,not ashamed of it,but I had enough about 6 months ago and tried to get out of the pain,know what I mean,but thankfully I did not complete the job,look as I said before first accept it,then the task becomes a tad easier,it;s like you're building a dam to keep the water out but facing a losing battle,let the water in,let those thoughts run rampant,but just hold enough back to say to yourself I can deal with you,you can't hurt me,and slowly things will ease.

    Like I said,you must see a doctor,don't be afraid,that's what anxiety feeds off,face that fear,only you know what it is,my fear is I fear fear,at the moment I am pretty good,but I seem to have become a little forgetful,I drop things,and I feel like I'm in Wonderland,perhaps going a little cuckoo,but it's kinda nice,still have bad days but I get by,and so will you,believe me,and believe in yourself!

    Keep on messaging,I'm up till 02.00 every morning,and not working at mo so always here.

    Yours Malc
