Social Anxiety and Sinus Issues?

Posted , 7 users are following.

My anxiety has been really up and down lately. I went around 3 months of non-stop anxiety and panic. I got all the symptoms people usually get with anxiety, every day- all day. It was the most exhausting thing I've ever experienced. I got relief for around 2 weeks. Then some stuff happened and now I'm right back to being anxious. But I noticed that I'm super sensitive to noise and people. I could be sitting on my laptop with the tv on and if two people are in the other room talking loudly, I'll lose it. I'll start having hot flashes, my heart will race, and my whole head will feel super weird. It's like I'm really sensitive to people/noise now. It gets really bad at stores and friends houses. I do have social anxiety but this feeling feels different. I just panic for no reason. I'll be seeing therapist in 5 days and I'm super stressed. I don't know if anyone else gets this sensitivity to noise but I also get this weird head sensation. It's not like my head goes numb but it's like a tingling sensation and I get really tired and face/temple pressure. I'm relatively young and have seen my doctor multiple times but I'm still convinced I have something wrong with my brain. It's not pain and it doesn't hurt, it just feels like a really bad sinus infections/head cold usually all day now for a week. Anyone else get any of these sensitivites/sinus problems?

    Hello , I hope you feel better I know all too well about the tingling sensation all over I don't know why it happens but yes I will be so happy when this disorder goes away forever , I could be sitting relaxing and sometimes I'll get tingly or numb and shortness of breath then feeling like I'm going to pass out , I went to the hospital and of course they didn't find anything in all the test they ran so I have to go see someone else , my primary care physician put me on Hydroxyzine 50mg it helps me stay calm but sometimes I still get alittle anxious for no reason.... Your not alone but in the mean time try to think good thoughts. God bless you...

      As of now, I actually stopped all my medications. I was on Seroquel and Hydroxyzine but now I just take NuSera (my doctor recommended it) and it helps you sleep/relieves anxiety at night. I've tooken it once so far and it works good. But on March 7th, I'll be going to my psychaitrist and getting my medicine changed onto another pill. I've went through like 9 different medicines so far and they all give me horrible side effects or make me feel worst. Ugh
