    It really sounds like your brain....needs some medication.

    I experienced all the same symptoms for years...and I was on a medication but I really think the medication was causing most of my symptoms.

    I recently switched to a new medication and I have started exercising....can you join a gym?  I'm telling you....exercise...the proper medication...and diet...are HUGE to alleviating these symptoms.

    I went so FAR worried about all of these symptoms I went to a Neurologist.

    My brain MRI is abnormal..but I think it is from years of alcohol abuse.

    Also if you abuse any kind of substance...alcohol or drugs...those things also wreak this type of havok.

    Since I have been exercising (1wk)....and taking the new antidepressent...I feel 100% different.

    I'm not focused on all my "bad" symptoms all the time like I body is healthier already....I've been given every pill to alleviate symptoms and none of them really work.

    What works is mindfulness (staying in the moment) and exercise.

    The exercise...I believe is giving me better sleep too....and when someone isn't sleeping it opens the door for many of these symptoms as well.

      Well sean...try the gym again?  Actually stopping drinknig about 7 weeks ago...seems like perfect timing for the extra anxiety you are feeling.

      Everyone has a certain level of anxiety...but for us who are prone to doesn't take much to really upset our bodies....

      I think you should re-join the gym...and to start...make yourself take a walk today....they say that walking is the quickest way to easing STRESS...getting the endorphins working.....and sleeping better.

      Also, when I eat fatty mood and anxiety pay the price.

      I craved pizza all day yesterday...I did not have it.....but whenever I do eat alot of fatty foods (which is often)...I feel sluggish and anxious..more than when I try to eat healthy and drink lots of fluid!

    Good grief - how can anyone have too much oxygen in their body? Normal is 96% - 99%.

    No wonder you're miserable - I've been to Uckfield.......... (sorry - joke)

    Seriously, Sean, you've done the heart attack thing, now you're moving on to the brain tumour thing. Or a bleed in the brain. Whatever.

    Do you know how much an MRI scan costs the NHS? Especially one that doesn't need to be done..........

    I am glad to see that you're going to be starting CBT and that you've started propranolol. That should help enormously.

    Good luck - keep us posted.     Tess xx

    Wow. .there are. .i have GAD. .your symptoms are same with mine. .if you are anxious all the time your blood pressure will definitely rise. I am currently taking physiotherapy for my neck and shoulder aches. They help alot. Just think positive even though its hard and try to keep your self busy with something else. Good luck. .

    I have a feeling you may be very dehydrated, also. You have no idea what that can do to mind and body. You need to be drinking one half your body weight in ounces of liquid...mostly water. a bottle of gatorade a day.

I have been diagnosed with GAD too and have started taking sertraline after previousley on Venlafaxine. I'm going the excercise route too and run 3 to 5 km a day. Well, for the past week I have and hope to continue. Good luck
