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...😢😢😢😢😢

    Hi Jay, I felt the same about a year ago, i was dead tired, hardly could move my body and felt really ill, like having a severe flu all the time, and it felt like life was draining out of me. At the same time I wasn't able to sleep at night, my whole body felt on alert, my heart was pounding and I was to awake to sleep at all. During day time I was exhausted and didn't want to do anything other than sleep. Is this what you are experiencing? Can you describe your symptoms more precisely?

      Hi Jay

      Just come across you post, I feel just the same especially in the mornings, the taste of blood really scarred me so went dentists and he could not find anything wrong but I did read that anxiety can cause this. Have had anxiety on and off for about 5 years but never had bad as i feel now.

      I'm so scarred this time I have lost interest in everything I used toike , everyone around me are saying it will be ok in the end but my head is not hearing any of it.

      My anxiety is driven by the thought that I keep making wrong decisions and latest one has ruined the rest of my life.

      Sounds very familiar to me! Including the fact it drives you crazy and also 'the taste of blood', which I would describe as a metallic taste.

      In my case a problem in my intestines, accompanied by vitamin deficiencies as a result, caused all this.

      I recovered by applying a compementary approach: identifying food allergies, restoring my gut health, solving deficiencies and strengthening of my immune system by breathing exercises, cold showers, visiting a craniosacral therapist, change of diet, taking suppelements and herbs etc. It took quite some time to get better, but in the end all problems were resolved.

      If you want to find out if you could be suffering from the same (which could well be the case), it's best to get some help of a complementary doctor/therapist, because it's quite complex to find out all this by yourself. and you need access to lab tests which aren't the same as the ones your regular doctor would order.

      If you stick to conservative medicine I think it will be hard to find the right approach, since regular doctors are not thinking about health and illness in a systemic way.

      Have you been tested for Lyme Disease or a Parvo Virus. I had the same symptoms last year. Went to every "ologist" under the sun. All tests were negative. I finally started feeling better. Then finally a rheumatologist said he thought I had had a parvo virus, which was very possible because I caught Fifths Disease from my son when he was about 5. I was about 38 at the time and woke up feeling like I had developed arthritis literally overnight. I went to a Rheumatologist and when they tested me, they said I was having an active parvo infection. It lasted about a month. I didn't know that it can stay in your system and re-emerge when you are under a lot of stress. But now I think the parvo virus did some kind of damage to my central nervous system, which is now causing my anxiety problems.

      Hi Jay, regular doctors don't test your gut microbiome or for leaky gut, don't check your nutrition level in your blood and don't check for a certain kind of food allergies. Also they don't look in to the root cause of your complaints.

      A complementary therapist, like for instance a orthomolecular therapist, can do all of these tests.
