I've been expericing anxiety for two months now and I'm really struggling to deal with it. It started off with just feeing anxious every now and again, but gradually progressed to the point where I'm getting severe chest pains and struggling to concentrate, as well as having panic attacks. I really don't understand where it has come from.
The only other time I have ever experienced anxiety was when I was at university, but it was only very slight and I could understand where it was coming from, as I was really stressed and completely overwhelmed by all the pressure. This anxiety however has just crept up on me and its horrible.
I eventually went to the doctor who prescribed me with 40mg of propranolol. I found this dose too high, as all I wanted to do was sleep and I was getting really bad headaches. I'm now taking 10mg. Does anyone feel like it is helping them? I'm still getting chest pains, having panic attacks, feeling tired all the time and not being able to sleep. Does anyone have any advice on how to cope.
