Not here today

Hi all.

Me again. Sorry but if I don't talk on here I will go mad and I don't want to keep burdening the hubby with my anxieties.

I've had a strange day today. I was in Tesco this morning and as I was going round I felt as if i wasn't there. If you get my meaning. I felt a bit panicky then because of it. Maybe it was to do with the fact that it was busier than usual! But I'm thinking more like peri symptoms. Does any one else get this? Also does anyone feel that tense with things that their jaw is so tight that you feel as if you are sucking all the air out of your mouth (tongue stuck to the roof of mouth).

I maybe asking silly questions but it is so frustrating. I want to feel relaxed and never do.

Thanks all.

Helen.

    Yes. I have this permanently. And I really want it to stop. Not sure but I think it can be caused by the anxiety... or maybe a deficiency of something. Just fopund out I am calcium & B12 deficient, just waiting for more results before any treatment xxxx

    Oh me too!  This is what I've been to my GP about THREE times now as it's just the most horrible thing.  I feel spaced out most of the time and I can't link it to anything in particular, certainly not my cycle.  I think they believe it is anxiety, but I do not.  It came on suddenly out of nowhere when I was on holiday 7 months ago and hasn't gone away.  I do sympathise, it's horrendous.  But I do feel relieved that it's not just me! Big hugs to you xx

    Hi Helen, I'm like that all the time and I sympathise. I feel spaced out and wobbly a lot and feel like you can't walk in a straight line, it's a horrible feeling, seem to get it more when I go anywhere, you are certainly not alone as I have found out - this site has really reassured me of my symptoms seems like there are hundreds of us poor souls suffering horrible things, bless you xx

    Thanks all for your replys. It seems as if this is quite common then.

    I feel for all of you that are having to go through this time. I was eating my tea half an hour ago and I couldn't relax. Then the adrenaline started and I thought I was going to have a panic attack! It did subside because I know that it is just adrenaline. My teeth are wearing down from all the tension and my cheeks in my mouth are sore from them being rubbed against my back teeth.

    I have taken myself off for a bath hoping that I will relax! I don't think I rel ax even when I'm asleep!

    Big hugs to you all.

    Helen.xx

    Hi Helen. Yes me too. I have such a tight neck and jaw it's ridiculous. It won't relax and is so painful. The tightness makes me feel dizzy and lightheaded .x

    hi Helen. 100% it's peri symptoms. When I first started with these symptoms it was that bad I couldn't even stay in the shops as my anxiety was that bad. Once I began to understand what was happening it was a lot easier to cope. Don't get me wrong I'm not fully anxiety free but I've learnt to deal with the symptoms.xx

    i had this in pere. i find some of the lights in the big stores make me go funny too,

    Try say to yourself that you are fine, i no its hard but if you train your brain into thinking of something else it does work after awhile. you have to say to yourself i dont want to feel like this,and i have to stop because i will get worse,try to think of something that makes you happy xxx

      Hi again, just to make you laugh.....went to the cinema tonight with a friend.  Felt so spaced out just walking from the car to the cinema, that I didn't see a huge puddle and walked right into it.  After the cinema, went to the loo and got a huge ream of loo roll stuck to my shoe and of course, was obliviously trailing it around without realising.  Both much to the amusement of passers by....... Doh.......!😳x
