Oh, anxiety...what's up with these symptoms?!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Okay, so I had these symptoms a while back when I first started having anxiety issues after starting a birth control pill, but now they are back again. When I first had them, it was mostly tingling and numbness in my arms and legs but this time, it is headaches around my temples and the back of my head running into my neck, which is painful and stiff. It also makes my shoulders feel stiff, my neck glands are swollen, my armpit glands are swollen, and I keep getting dizzy, especially when I'm sitting. This morning when I was out of the house, I was fine, but as soon as I got home and settled, the symptoms started again. I take online classes and I know it would help to get out of the house, which is why I'm trying to get a job. I just was wondering if this does sound like anxiety to you guys or should I be worried there's something wrong, which I will probably do anyway because I'm a major hypochondriac. Please help!

      Okay...do you ever get like a sharp, quick pain near your ribs? That something new for me, and it scares me. It only lasts for a few seconds and I don't have any sickness with it or anything. When I touch the area, I can usually soothe it by rubbing the pressure point there (my muscles have been inflamed with my anxiety) so I'm thinking it's just that.
