is it anxiety or something serious

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi everyone . Please could you help . I'm 26 female . I've always been worried about something bad is going to happen since I had my little girl 6 years ago etc but I always managed to pull my self together. But this January I gave birth to my baby boy :-( he was born with wings ( stillborn ) I've been suffering with depression and anxiety bad since then . I've been put on sertialine 50mg and now on 200mg. I'm worrying I've got cancer and that's coursed my baby to die. I had a lump feeling in the throat got the all clear. It was just grief globus sensation . That made me feel better . I've had my mouth burning etc etc .now I'm getting the tingling feeling on my right side of my jaw/chin area but it's only when I touch that part of the face or if my jacket etc touches it. Also sends a weird sentation into a few of my teeth . I'm so worried about it . Has anyone else experienced it I have it all the time for the past month .Also few days ago I had my weave removed ( hair extensions) I was itching my neck area behind my ear hair line .found a lump . I went doctors they said it's fine keep an eye on it. But really I'm so scared . Sorry you all may think I'm a drama queen. But my life has really changed . I'm grieving for my baby and also grieving for the strong/bubbly/caring person I use to be. I use to be able to pull my self together . Just can't do it anymore :-( I wish no one had to suffer with anxiety/depression or anyone have to have experience the loss of a child . I hope you all are ok and getting on the right tracks xxx

    Hi, Natashaloo. What a terrible time you've had. Not many of us are required to go through what you've gone through.

    Your symptoms are almost certainly anxiety. You do need to keep checking with your doctor - he is the one who can tell you when something needs specialist checking. Once he's given you the all clear you must try and relax. Your daughter needs your attention, and she needs you to laugh and smile. She is your treasure - let her know that.

    My children are all grown up now and I wish I had to courage to tell them how much I love them. Do it now, and keep it up all your life.

    Good luck.

    Anxiety can do such amazing things to us: we believe in the pains and aches we get. I even felt a lump when I was your age. All in my unhappy mind. You've had a particularly bad experience and I don't know how anybody lives through that. I wish you all the best.
