Having such a hard time again

Posted , 3 users are following.

So I've being doing a lot better lately. It's why I haven't really been on here. But these last 4 or 5 days I feel like I'm getting worse again and I'm going crazy because I thought I was on the mend. First of all I shake basically all day long. Sometimes only internally like a vibrating but other times I can see it. It's worse when I haven't eaten. My arms still feel weak occasionally and so do my hands but it's been a lot better. My eyes are still weird. My doctor said it's probably just dry eye syndrome but idk. I have a hard time focusing, my vision gets blurry or cloudy randomly during the day and sometimes it feels like my vision is shaking but idk if it's just my head or neck shaking or what. I also feel this dread. It's not really anxiety or depression it's like a feeling of doom. Which I'm used to because of panic attacks but now the feeling sticks with me all day. Oh and now I can feel my pulse in my face. I'm just so tired. Sleep is basically impossible. I keep waking up shaking. I have so many thoughts that I'm going to die. I'm terrified it's something neurological. My dreams are terrifying too. I always dream I can't walk or move my arms or something else awful. I take ibuprofen pm or Benadryl but it doesn't work. My doctor gave me atenolol for my Supra ventricular tachycardia, but it made my hands and feet stiff and freezing cold so I couldn't keep taking it. I'm seeing her again tomorrow maybe she can give me a different beta blocker. I don't know what to do I'm afraid I have a brain tumor or MS or something even more rare and horrible sad I know how illogical I sound but I can't help it. My obsessive thoughts are out of control again.

    Anxiety revs up everything. I have eye ailments and some of the stuff you wrote i get too. I have no clue whats what with certain things. Im not even feeling anxious at times and vision gets weird. I always think dry eyes causes a lot of stuff, i try to go simple. Hard because i know i do have something going on. Thats been diagnosed. I cant constantly go to the eye dr and im there every six months because i have to be. Anyway its haunting sometimes. Its unfair. And lifes not fair but this is really unfair.

    okay sorry back to you..im not sure if some of this is beta blocker related. I cant stand those.they change your rhythm and make you feel strange and slowed and yes limbs can feel cold in some of them.but you are on them for an issue so you ask if there is another option. There are three classes of them i believe.

    18% of anxiety symptoms overlap MS so tins of people have that fear.

    you dont sound illogical you sound sad and tired of all of this.

    Your dream is very intersting by the way. You feel stuck. I think that is how you feel as well.

    Youll discuss it all with your doctor, and they have heard i all before. Some are more compassionate then others. It doesnt even sound obsessive you sound like there are effects from the medicine. Depression by the way can occur from these bp meds too many deny that but it is true. Rememeber it is changing your bodies rythm. Slowing things down. Mention all of it tomorrow. 

    I dont know your age but i blame a lot of whats has transpired on me to menapause. It changed my body. Whats sucks is anxiety makes it hard to determine whats what at times. You focus on it and i heightens. Im unsire why this cant be done in reverse. I think its because fight or flight is more potent then joy, the need to survive is very primitive...i dont know,

      Hey Lisa, thanks for replying as always. I do feel stuck. I think for a few weeks I was getting better and now I'm at a plateau. I stopped taking the beta blocker after 2 days because of the side effects and that was a few weeks ago. I'm hoping for a different option when I see her tomorrow. I'm 21!

    Omg I am going through a similar situation. I wake up shaking on the inside. My arms and legs are weak, like my muscles ache. It's both arms and legs. I started to have an involuntary muscle movement on the right side of my face. My vision seems to get blurry more and more. I was so afraid I had ms or something so I went to my doctor. She said if it is neurological it is typically one side or the other because each side of the brain controls the opposite side of the body. She said all of my symptoms were anxiety related. She did extensive blood work and said everything is fine and there is no reason to worry yet I still worry.

    Mandie, hang on in there!

    You told Lily you stopped taking propranolol - you should have discussed it with your doctor first, but that's life.........Ive stopped prescribed  meds myself sometimes.

    It is infinitely safer to talk to yiur doctor first, though .................

    Go back and tell yout doctor everything and get new medication.

    I hope you'll soon be feelimg a lot bette,
