Help! Can't believe anxiety is back!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I stopped taking venlafaxine in January, it was hard but I got through it and for the last 3 months I've felt great! I have no idea why that in the last 10 days I've been hit with physical symptoms of anxiety. Waking up with a stomach ache......feeling sick.......headache/migraine........feeling low and panicky........worried......feeling like I might lose control of my life. I had these on and off for a week and then the last few days it's been relentless, I can't seem to get rid of them. I know it's anxiety and I tell myself constantly that it is just a blip and it will go away, yet it's still here!!! Can anyone tell me if they have experienced this and did it just go away??

    Anxiety has a habit of seemingly disappearing only to rear its ugly head.

    Hey there,

    I beat anxiety for nearly 5 years, but it came back in December and I've been having issues since. It can come and go, but remember the lessons your learned the first time you beat it and remember the techniques you used.

    Do you have a therapist or a counsellor or someone who is trained to help?

    Sure! It waxes and wanes. It can occur for weeks then stop again. It can stop for any amount of time. Just know it will eventually pass again. Its kind of a lifetime thing. Hows your diet! I have strongly noticed a connected of a bad diet with reoccurances.

      Well, that's the thing, I'm overweight and a week ago today I joined a slimming group, I've been eating so healthily in the last week and that's when the anxiety has been worse! Hmmm maybe it's withdrawal from chocolate 😂

      Might be sugar withdrawls (yeast dying from being starved from all the sugar too) and not even anxiety but your mind connects it and triggers it into anxiety.hang in there takes about three weeks for the body to readjust to new diets and eating habits. It will pass again. It will, it always does. Also caffiene withdrawl by the way..chocolate is filled with sugars and caffiene. You should probably buy some magnessium glycinate (pure ecapsulates) just use one at night. Doesnt bother the stomach its a good one and absorbale many use the wrong ones.That will replace magnessium difference as well.chocolate cravers are usually low in magnessium. Hang in there it will absolutely pass again.
