Feeling sick and we'll at the same time

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had Anxiety disorder since around Christmas last year. Since then I've had TONS of different symtoms, but I'm a terrible worrier and now I worry alot about my health.

Sometimes I have like 3-5 'normal' days then something else pops up. Today I feel sick, irritable bowels and abit fatigued. The lump in my throat is back and my damn arm pains won't go away.

I moved to the states two months ago and I haven't yet been to a doctor here. The doc back home said I have anxiety but each time a new symtom comes I start fretting constantly that it's something terrible. That just makes me feel worse.

Any suggestions on how to deal? I'm from Jamaica, I'm not used to the cold and I've been depressed for years too.

    I've had smilar problems. The thing is that you cant control anxiety, it can come at anytime. The best thing you can do is learn to how to deal with it. When you have normal days, or "moments of clarity" where you feel perfect, remember how that feels. Take it how good it is to be normal for that period of time and keep reaching for that. It can really help. Also, make sure you see a therapist.

    If you need anything, post on this forum or feel free to send me a PM!

    Good luck and all the best!

    Thanks you guys, I'm new in the states and so I don't have insurance. But I'm trying to figure out how to get therapy because I can't do this alone. I try deep breathing because it's really hard for me to relax and I try positive self talk.

    Maybe I'll start to feel better after I've seen a doctor and have some checks done. It's sometimes soooo hard to keep believing that anxiety can cause people to have so many weird feelings.

    You should go to a doctor. Let them give you a full exam. Then diagnose you. It seems panic attacks are a global thing. Dealing with it seems to be a personal thing, meaning everyone has a different way to cope with it. Therapy that teaches cbt is an important begining but be careful some therapist are terrible. You have to honestly need to  feel comfortable with the person. I have ran into a few horrible therapist in my time. I also have had wonderful ones, the best one moved a long time ago. So go by your gut feeling.
