Symptoms anyone....

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm new here. I have health anxiety after being diagnosed with ptsd. I'm 21 years old. I have my own place, great boyfriend(whose a fireman and always reassuring me my blood pressure and heart rate is fine) a great job, family, and friends. I have so much going for me but am so focused on this constant fear of my dying or having a serious health issue. I get a pain in my leg and assume it's a blood clot. I get a heart palpation and this my heart is going to go out of arrythm ( I've had three ekgs, two heart holters, and a echo. All were fine) I get a head ache and think it's a brain tumor. I get a tingle in my left arm and assume it's my heart. I get dizzy and feel off balanced and I think I have ms. I feel calm and all the sudden assume my blood pressure must be too low. I get anxiety when I'm calm! Because it feels so out of the norm. The worst for me is also feeling out of it. I've been on cymbalta twice which worked great for me but I got off thinking I was "fine". Got my boobs done and then a few months later anxiety came back. I kept thinking it was my boobs and that I had lupus! So my dr started me on zoloft (felt suicidal) and got off. Then celexa. It did nothing so I stopped it after three weeks (I know I should of waited) I need to go back on cymbalta but can't bring myself to do it. ): I am so miserable and at my wits end. Are all these symptoms anxiety? I feel like I'm going crazy.. I took a antibiotic last night and this morning for a uti and keep thinking I'm going to have horrible side effects or allergic reaction. Ugh..... ):

    Thank you guys. It's so hard because no one gets it unless they experinced it. I am so scared of side effects but need cymbalta. I would rather live a short happy life then a long anxious one constantly waiting on death. I feel as if none of us r truley living by fearing we are always dying! But it's a viscous cycle and so hard to stop. I get anxiety for no reason.
