Spasms

Posted , 3 users are following.

My anxiety and depression is quite bad. Lately I have had these weird almost spasms in my leg arm and hands is this normal?? I am constantly worried about having a blood clot as my nan had quite a few she had a pulmonary embolism too and cancer I always think I have cancer I get bad acid reflux and the doctor told me my voice box is red which I can't stop thinking about. All I want to do is lie down and sleep winter is hard I don't feel motivated. I lost my grandparents suddenly and I am terrified this will happen to me too I have too much to look forward to to miss but every day is a constant struggle I think people are talking about me at work and that I am never good enough. I get headaches and go to bed early because if I am asleep I am not panicking which makes me feel better. Don't know where to turn with this sad

      Hi ken it's good to know I am not alone I always fear the worst I worry that by expecting the worst I will not fully appreciate the good times. The slightest little thing I turn into something huge it's tiring. Have you seen a doctor or counsellor? I would go for years & have only just started going it's helping me xx

      Hi ken that's awful I had a very bad experience with a doctor it put me off completely and I got so depressed but refused to see a doctor. Eventually I thought I was have a breakdown so my fiancé took me to see a different doctor who is so lovely and understanding. I have told her my worries about not being able to work and she understands. Can you change doctor? Life is precious and I am sure lots of people love you xx

      Hi Sophie it's horrible isn't it and my fiancé has never had depression (which I'm thankful for) but also I don't think you can understand these things until you have lives them. I worry constantly about my health and also my work (that I am not good enough) money, going out everything you can think of. The slightest pain in my arm and I think oh it's a blood clot and I sit a lot at a desk at work so then I worry about that too!! Drives me nuts xx
