How To Not Get Annoyed By Physical Symptoms

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've had constant muscle tension for about two weeks now that has slowly been getting better. The problem I have is not feeling relaxed. Even when I am not anxious, my body still is tense and feels on edge. I also get annoyed by the constant rubber band feeling in my head. It's not painful, but it is uncomfortable and annoying. When I have anxious thoughts, it feels like it gets tighter. How can I alleviate this feeling? It's so annoying and makes me feel like I'm going to loose it.

    Sounds like tension headaches I get them often with anxiety. I have one now as a matter of fact. Constantly on edge and awaiting something that you don't know if or when it'll come.

    Tea helps me and some meditation. Praying in a hot shower soothes me. Hope you feel better
