HELP ME PLEASE!!! Need advice....

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hello I am a 27yr old female. I am suffering from anxiety but I feel like it's something that my dr and these hospitals are missing. I have been feeling very sickly off and on since July. My dr keeps trying to put it on anxiety. I have had blood work done and been to three different hospital plenty of times and a cardiologist and everything's coming back normal. But I don't feel normal I feel sick. Like I'm dying from a deadly disease. I barely want to leave the house. I am on alprazolam it has been working but today it seems not to wanna work. I don't know what else to do. I don't go out anymore it's work and back home. I'm barely getting sleep at night. Does anyone else feel like with that has anxiety or do you feel like it's something else the Drs are missing. I feel like I'm going to be one of those find it to late cases (God forbid). This is driving me insane!!!!! Just want my life back...😢😢😢😢😢

    I know exactly how you feel I have felt that way for the past year but I had to come to terms with the fact that I have anxeity and depression. I kept thinking they where missing something but what I had to do was step back and look at all the appointments with many different doctors and many different hospitals and I relieved they can't all be missing something. I am not going to lie the meds are awful but I've only just started taking them so hopefully they will start working soon.

    Why do you treat anxiety like it is something to be overlooked?

    The irony of anxiety is its exacerbated by your negative thought pattern that you're ill.. which keeps you feeling ill.

    Also sounds like you may be depressed too... you more than likely suffer from hypochondria (health anxiety) no matter the amount of reassurance you get from every doctor, you still feel like somethings wrong. I thought I had a brian tumor for almost two years when I recently went to my local ER and had a CT scan of my head and it made me so much better but I still have physical symptoms bUT i no longer fear of that. See if your doctor can refer you to someone you can talk to and see if there's something they can do to help you feel better. I'm sorry you're going through this sad keep your head up the best you can. But just keep doing what you need to do to if you feel like somethingsomething wrong. You know your body better than any doctor could. But just try to get help so you know if it is health anxiety you can get it under control

      Do the basic checks. Are you eating well? Taking multi vitamin and moving about at least thirty minutes a day? Do you get sleep at night? Have you learned meditation and cbt? Do you consume at least ten full glasses of water a day? The body needs nutrition, sleep and exercise to function properly, especially in anxious people. Once you feed it poorly, a use it, sleep deprive it it tends to start malfunctioning. Anxiety is a huge bully and beats uo the whole body and the adrenaline rushes are exhausting. So cover those basics for a bit and see if your stregnth returns. As your stregnth returns you will be better equipt to properly del with the anxiety.you kicked it once before so you do know what to do. Set back happen but you are a strong person and you believe with your entire body this will pass and you will get through this. But you would not expect a car to drive with no gas or driving fluids so dont expect your body to function well with bad nutrition, lack of sleep nd being put through adrenaline rushes.

    Hi Jay how long have you suffered with anxiety? And what triggered it. Im a lot older than you, I do sympathies with you,

    As I've had it a long time, but pills didn't work on me,

    But I did come across a cognitive behaviour therapy series on line I can't recommend this therapy enough.

    I made great progress, this Doctor suffered with anxiety himself so knows what he's talking about. There 20cds in the series. An you take it step by step. Goog luck

      I have been dealing with anxiety for 7 yrs off and on. At first it was jus shortness of breath and it went away for months. Then it came back I couldn't eat or barely move. Then it went away for yrs. now it has come back and I have never had any of these physical symptoms I'm having now so it's scaring me thinking i am really sick. I'm not stressed out or constantly worrying or thinking about anything. It jus comes out of no where. I could b fine then it hits me. I don't understand

      I used to think I didn't have anxeity either because I kept saying I am not stressed out but it was explained to me that even if you don't feel stressed the anxeity can hit you just off a word you here or something you see.
