    It sounds very much to me that are suffering with an obsessive disorder which may be leading to anxiety.

    Most certainly your symptms point to that.

    Are you currently having any counselling or taking any dedicated prescribed medications for these problems?

      I'm currently waiting to have counselling. Hopefully that may help me, I've had beta blockers and all sorts and nothing helped, only made me worse. Thank you for your reply! if there's anything you an suggest in the mean time I'd be more than happy to try.

      I wonder why they gave you Beta Blockers?

      I would have thought that an anti-depressant or anti-psycholtic medication would have been more appropriate.

      Unfortunately I am not permitted to suggest a suitable medication, but if I were you I would ask your doctor to consider these as possibilities, as well as a course of CBT.

    were you a sheltered child. or a rasied in a single parent and experience abuse? you could have mainfested that repeative thoughts. maybe see a counceller no shame in getting help even the strongest go for it, the ppl who dont just dont understand the strenght dayly it takes to get out of bed let alone the house. if you take any drugs it will have the same effect and if not only to cope they highten the effects of your anxity. is your sleep affected?.

      None of those, never taken drugs. Been raised with both parents. Been happy family and everything. I've just always had problems with my body since I as younger, heart etc. I have counselling but it didn't help so I decided I could only help myself and I'm getting better!
