Is anxiety all that's wrong with me?????

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello all, I am 29 male that has had anxiety for the last three years. I have been really struggling with my anxiety lately with whole new symptoms, I would like to list them and see if anyone else who has this with anxiety, I have been on beta blockers and anti depression as we'll . Which used to work really well but not so much now. 

1, warm headaches on the right side of my head which also affects my right eye

2, I have pains under my right armpit

3, I have pressure on my temples which never goes away

4. I have wind all day which hurts my chest, this dosent move with medication 

5, feel really weak and dizzy

I have had a MRI for my head and everything was fine. Tho I have been to the doctor three times in the last month with the symptoms above but the doctor just says it anxiety. From having anxiety for so long I know how it normally feels but this feels different. If I could get feed back from anyone with my problems above would be great 

thanks

    Hi Keith, I too am an anxiety sufferer, i get lots of weird symptoms which sometimes I cannot explain, sometimes I feel like there's electricity running through me. Think the symptoms u have at the moment sound as if you are putting a lot of pressure on yourself which is creating tension in your head...... Migraine type headache u described & pressure pain in temples. Dizziness is a common symptom of anxiety. My anxiety caused me to resign from my job in 2011, I'm back at work now part time & struggling with negative thoughts & symptoms. All I can say is that no matter how I feel when I get up in morning I just let the symptoms b there & get on with my day, as hard as it is what's the alternative ? Stay home & dwell. I think if u just accept your symptoms for now, don't keep thinking bout them, do everything u want to eventually the symptoms will ease & disappear .

    Hope you feel better soon & remember it's only symptoms, your body is well 😄

      Don't even try to control it Keith that causes exhaustion, just let it tag along with you if u know what I mean. Just do normal things, things u enjoy, the anxiety will always b there if u keep thinking bout it.

      Try this & c what happens, let me know how u get on 😎

    Hi Keith. I really feel for you, it isn't easy dealing with the symptoms but Brenda is right, if you try your hardest to carry on regardless the symptoms in time will lessen. I know from experience that this is not easy but I promise if you do your absolute best things will improve, I'm going through the same thing at the moment but it is definitely getting better....slowly but it is working
