    I'm so sorry to hear this is going on for you! Anxiety is a total pain....

    First of all, I must ask... when going to the doctor, did you have a list of your symptoms ready for him? If not, I'd suggest keeping a journal to organize these symptoms and understand them more.

    If this idea was already considered, do you have any other doctors you can go to? Have you went to more than one doctor to get help for the anxiety? If not, I highly suggest you try that.

    However, if all else fails, it wouldn't hurt to do some research and figure out some relaxation techniques to manage the anxiety. Meditation, yoga, and exercise may be helpful, to name a few examples. Whenever you feel the panic coming on, take a few deep breaths and tell yourself everything will be okay. Explore all these techniques and much more, to see what works best in reducing your anxious symptoms. I'm addition, it may do great wonders to limit the amount of caffeine you consume, if you have any.

    Either way, hope everything works out! If you need anyone to talk to, you can message me.

    Sorry to hear you are struggling. I have suffered from anxiety since March. I can relate to how you feel. I had a really bad patch where I honestly thought I was going to die and the fear was so real, every part of me worried I would.

    I suffered from spaced out feelings for weeks where I felt floating, palpitations, a feeling as if I can't breath properly, aching body to the point where I wanted to stay in bed, pins and needles, body vibrations. Ear muffling, I felt like a nervous wreck. I had mri, ct scan, heart scan ecg. I got to the point that I had so much done that only then did I have to accept it was anxiety. I would have moments where I was really bad and then not so bad, my symptoms would change every time a few weeks heart palps, then pins and needles hence why I thought I was dying. I also use to say ' I just want to be myself again' as I was very rational and not irrational.

    I think over time, and realising that after every panic that I didn't die and also thinking if something was really wrong with me something more serious would happen or I would of died by now. Helped me see it was all physical symptoms of anxiety. I tried a few things to help myself, such as having baths to relax, sometimes I would have 3 a day. Massage would also help me. Yoga can also be good. There was a point where I wouldn't live my house without a bottle of water or my cross. But it made me feel safer at the time. I have managed to get through it but I do still have times where if I have something wrong an ache or a pain I will think the worse still and worry what it could be, it does get me down at times. However I just think to myself what can I do but see a doctor and hope nothing is wrong. My way of thinking is much more rational than it use to be.

    You will definitely start to feel more yourself, it could take days, weeks or months. For others much longer. However, nonetheless it will get better, you will have days you feel less worried. I found the more I got normal results from the Drs I had to face facts that I was not actually dying. Also, finding different ways to relax myself and also trying to take it day by day. I went for lots of walks with my boyfriend too.

    I know right now you feel horrible, and it's like your world just stops being the world you once knew. But try take it day by day, watch some positive thinking videos, yoga, exercise, baths, massage, listen to music, talk to people who understand, it's okay to have the thoughts you are having, when you have the moments where you feel you are going to die try talk yourself through it & remind yourself you are not dying, take some deep breaths and give yourself the time you need. Talk to a friend or on the forum, you will get through it. X

      Be brave for your child! Anxiety will only control you if you let it, I have come to realise that! But it's not easy to get rid of it takes time. Have you tried taking anything to help? Sounds silly but are you getting enough nutrition when you eat? Xxx
