Hi everyone, I'm a 23 year old female with 2 little boys, everything in my life seemed so perfect (nice house, good job, good partner, no money issues etc). I have recently been diagnosed with anxiety. It all started at beginning of January, I had a very random panic attack and it's just gone on from there. I have constant symptoms. Extreme headaches (sometimes feel like water trickling inside my head) Chest pain, pain under my ribs, arm and leg pains, dry mouth, extreme tiredness, feel sick, get hot and cold sweats, toilet issues and the list goes on. I've been to my doctors many of times and also to a&e when the pains have got really bad. Every medical professional I have seen have told me it's anxiety. I've had a ECG, blood tests and the usual blood pressure and listen to my heart and lungs. I'm finding it so hard to believe this is all caused from anxiety, I haven't been stressed or anything. Also how do they know I don't have some heart problem or whatever if they have not checked it out (scanned or done an X-ray). I have recently started taking fluoxetine and they don't seem to be helping what so ever. I really can't help but think/feel that their is something seriously wrong with me. It's really effecting my everyday life and making me feel really low. Does anyone else feel like this? Please tell me it get better!
