    Its probably exhaustion. Anxiety is extremly draining mentally and physically. Maybe try to drink a nutritional shake and take a multi vitamin and a b complex vitamin. It is draining.

    Yep. Suffering from anxiety is incredible draining.! I was able to "come down" a bit on Wednesday but today all I want to do is sleep. My saying re the feeling is that there's not enough of me to hold myself upright! Be kind to yourself!

    Hi Victoria......I can't say I feel weak but I constantly feel on edge and my muscles are always tense, especially my neck and upper back.

    It's like i have to remember to keep lowering my shoulders because they are always up at my ears, which I know is causing my neck tension.

    Anxiety sure I a pain.

    take care

      My medication I feel hasn't worked at all😣, so I generally feel it's down to that, obviously the fact I don't leave the house and do normal things before, gets me alittle down, but I know if I don't get my medication sorted soon and get a normal life back I will end up with depression😓, sometimes makes me feel am never gonna have a life where I can leave the house again, just need to wait and see what my doctor says when I phone, hopefully she'll start me on the other medication as soon as, am determined to be able to go back out again and enjoy life☺️

      I passed out last July, broke both bones in my leg, resulting in needing an operation, and the road to recovery hasn't been easy, still suffer some pain, but when it happened it was fine after it, never let it bother me, then roughly around Valentine's Day that's kinda when it all started, felt really sh*t and anxious all the time, was out shopping and took a dizzy turn and ever since then I just started stopped leaving the house, it had been months before I left again, started the medication a few weeks ago, but the doctor told me they should start working after two weeks, at first I felt fine and alittle better, didn't feel as anxious, then after like 2 weeks I started to feel the same again, been feeling like it again for the past 2 weeks, wouldn't say it went away, I just had a good few days, the doctor did tell me the medication I was on might not have worked because they're new and don't really know much about it, I was gonna give myself some time until like the begging of August until I was to go back for a check up, to see if I felt any better, but I feel I can't go on anymore time with this, especially with my partner, hes always trying To invole me in things again, but it's just hard because I feel the same as I did before, so am gonna phone the doctors tomorrow, and see if I can speak to another doctor as my doctor isn't in until Tuesday's, explain everything, and see if they will try me on the other medication the doctor said she would if these didn't work, because am determined to find something that helps and allows me to do things again with my partner as its out year anniversary in September and my 19th, so I wanna be able to do things for them
