Posted , 5 users are following.

I was told I have anixety, which was brought on by stress and so on. I was put on Buspar and just started taking it. I have so many physical symptoms and I don't know how to contral them. And must days I find it very hard to believe its all from anixety? Here's what I have, please tell me what u think? I'm completely stressed out! And kissing my mind! Chest tightness all day everyday, 24/7 go to bed with it, wake up and 30 minutes later it's back. Weird head feelings very hard to explain. Light headed some times. And seem to be sick a lot. Cough and cold like sickness. The chest is the most bothering to me. I have had MRI EKG STRESS TEST BLOOD WORK CT and all comes back normal! Please someone reply and help me even a little!?

    Oh honey!!! I'm in the same boat sad

    Anxiety really does suck .

    I hate the physically feelings also as you think to your self , how is this caused by anxiety! Then you over think or google to see what's wrong with you.

    Then it just makes it worse!!!!!! I've been on my meds for almost 5 weeks and just up my does and feeling a little better but not 100% but I try to think positive and know this is not forever.

    How long have you been on your meds??

    Is there stress in your life right now??

    Hang in there , totally know what you are going through smile

      I just started them Saturday, and yes I do have a lot of stress. Husband is in the Army, have a 16 year old that just started driving, a 15 year old, a 11 year old and a 5 year old that just started school. Husband just got home from his 3rd deployment in August and I have been like this ever since. I run my own daycare and for the last 6 months I have been without an income. And that hasn't helped at all, my Inlaw lives with is as well. Life is really taking a toll right now. And I feel like I am really freaking dieing :-/ NOTHING I do takes my mind off the physical symtoms.

    Any symotom that you feel while you are in an anxious state has to be written off as anxiety. If you have not had a dr. Physical exam within three months go get one and be sure to do bloods and a chem scan. Then when anxiety strikes learn mindful breathing and it is hard but great to do it and literally focus  on nothing even and only if it is for ine solid minute. Sometimes i can do this other times i say to myself this is apanic  attack and i name the feelings and repeat it is a oanic attack and im going to get through this just as i have before,. Personally i have decieded if im wrong then im wrong and id fall out but it beats feeding the anxiety would seems daily and is so life ruining it is not even worth the health anxiety to begin with. When you have calmed down and the attac k passes do a little stretching and see how you feel. Dont focus on it whatever you do. You can even keep a little notebook around and write down each and every symptom during the panic attack. It will be your log and what happens to you in that hugh stress state. Over time you will see those weird pains or sensation will come and go and you will over ride the panic with believe and certainty that your body is tricking you. This is cbt btw and the mindful breathing will save your sanity for a little bit. Not sure what the deal is with the body being so heightened but i have been able to almost observe my body and leave my mind out of it sometimes and it is interesting. My guess is 30 days makes a habit. So 30 days hoping mymind   will on its own ignore the symptoms of the panic. A small dose of some meds might be needed at times but well worth the long run if freedom and peace. Even if its just a notch or two lower levels of anxiety its enough to be able to breathe through it. I did this on my own but found i didnt want too anymore and got a dr. Recently to help me. First one was terrible but newe one is kind and understanding. You must must believe you will be okay and believe these panic attacks will pass . Thats the key cause eventually you will desentize to the feeling and they will stop. Not a quick fix can take long time but so worth trying it out and knowing everything will be okay. Do not what if anything. In the moment only. Recognize you made anxiety rules that are very destructive. You have told yourself if you ignore the symptoms its an evil disease but its a lie..its a lie to yourself. You have lied to yourself telling yourself you are smarter then cat scans and all the doctors. These are commin anxirty rules we put out there but they are false. Who cares what symptoms you are feeling during a panic attack. The mind will validate anything you think.it will it is how it is set up. So acknowledge the symptoms, write them down but  be an observer and know it will pass. It is more comforting to have a counselor or dr. On board. I have health ailmenst so it was getting confusing when i panicked but unless someone was trying to kill me or a reaction to a medicine nothing makes your body react that intensly. No ailment would do that. That heigtened fear filled experience is terror and its is a horrible quality of life and i feel at this point way worse then any disease out there. There are kids with riddled cancer who are calmer and it is in noway comforting at all to feel like your losing it. Thats hiw i feel and i hate these panic attacks and i really cant live like this so im at the point i have to be my own cheerleader and change the way this is all playing out. So eqsy to what if..so easy and easier to negatively think but or how..so dont. The coping skills that git you to this point stink and need to be re trained slow and steady and only you can do this. And you will do this. One moment at a time and if you need help from a counselor or a doctor and they feel comforting to you then its a great idea. May god bless you and guide you and YOU can do this.
