Is it just really bad anxiety?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've been dealing with some different symptoms then what I usually get. As of late I've been feeling off centered. As if my left and right side are on different levels. I've been getting a weakness sensation in my legs and hands. To the point where I feel like my legs will give out at any moment even though they haven't. My ears ring and I get a numbness/pressure in the back of my neck. I also notice my body feels like it's throbbing. Finally I feel like an emptiness/numbness in my abdomen. I've been to multiple doctors and had many tests run which all come back fine. I have a 0.5mg prescription of lorazepam which doesn't seem to help when this all happens.

I'm wondering if these symptoms are just more intense anxiety problems?

    It might be anxiety Matt.  You can get all kinds of weird symptoms. Are you on zoloft.  I wouldn't know if that is a reaction.  Did doc say maybe you could take two of the lorazepam to take the edge off.  Sue

    It is more then simple anxiety. Its referred to as a panic disorder. Sensory overload happens then it sets off fight or flight and rushes adrenaline through you. Effects seventy percent of the body so there are so many different symptoms that can happen over time. Learn cbt so you have tools and resources to refer too. Are you in therapy? Biofeedback is excellent along with therapy
