    I'm sorry to hear you have had so much to deal with. It's certainly sounds like you are suffering from post traumatic stress and no amount of tests is going to help with that. You really need theoretic supper with correct medication. I'm sure you can get back to how you once was but you will need supper and a go that understand the tremodous anxiety you are facing. I hope your situation improves soon. Bereavement counselling is probably a good idea too, you've ben through so much. Xxx

      Sorry auto spell! Therapeutic support!! Like counselling or CBT. I think the tests will make you feel better for a short while but then the anxiety will resurface in a different symptom because health anxiety sues that until you address the real problem which might be grief or fear X

    The septacaemia must have had a big effect on your body causing you major internal infections hence all the sweating and burning sensations in your blood vessels and possibly all other areas.

    I hope that you recover soon and that you can enjoy looking after your familiy again.   The anxiety could just be a knock on effect of the bad experience that you had in A and E with the premature birth of your child and its consequences.

    I hope you don't have depression for too long and can get back to normal soon.

    I know how you feel. I've been suffering since July of 2015. Lost weight, stay home all the time. Going to a doc visit makes me anxious. I've never been like this since my anxiety disorder started when I was 21 and I am 45 now. My Paxil, which is the hardest antidepressant to come off of that some doctors won't prescribe it. Even though I'm still taking it I get withdrawal symptoms. Started on Prozac recently but it increased my anxiety so I'm weaning off of it too. I feel like crap 95% of the time. My doc wants me to take olanzapine also, but I'm scared once I get on it if I need to stop I won't be able to. I am very sensitive to medication. How long have you been on the Olanzapine? I take a 1.25 mg dose to sleep as needed and when I get close to my menstrual cycle my anxiety goes haywire.
