    Lyme disease

      I came up with lyme disease because I have witnessed it firsthand. My sister started experiencing the same things as Aria and it confused everybody.

      She wore a heart moniter for avout a month and everything came back normal. She had a couple blood tests done such as one for anemia, which she isnt anemic. So after that everybody kept on repeating that it was just anxiety and panic attacks but she was convinced they were wrong.

      Finally a doctor decided to test for lyme. Which came back positive. So before you tell Aria to ignore me, I would suggest she go look into the symptoms of lyme and see if anything matches up.

      I'm not diagnosing her with lyme, I was throwing a suggestion out there so that if lyme did happen to be the case, she wouldn't have to suffer along with so many other patients with lyme being told it's "just in their head".

      Doctors know very very little about the disease which is why it almost is never diagnosed. It is way more common that people might think though.

      Hope this helps in at least some way.

    When i was first put on medication, the dosage had to be changed twice before we got it right.

    You need to talk to your prescribing doctor...he's the one who can help with that.

    It does indeed sound like classic anxiety, sweetheart. Check with doc.

    Are you taking a quarter of a pill at a time? Or a quarter mg?

      I think if you took the whole thing then you would feel better and realize that it truly is the anxiety making you feel like this. Then you might have your mind put at ease and not even have to take any more. I take .5mg at a time currently. My doctor prescribed me 1mg pills to take every 6 hours which I thought was excessive especially after I took everything the first whole one and it put me to sleep. I started cutting them after that.

      My resting pulse is usually about 55. Sometimes sitting in the recliner at night it gets to 47 or so. As long as it goes up with activity then you are OK, at least that's what my doctor said.

      Aria, your BP is perfection. Your resting pulse is perfection. Many here will wish they had it so good.

      It is the anxiety that is telling you it is all bed. That's what anxiety is, that's what it does. You are scaring yourself out of your socks.

      Mine lately has been 110/70. I actually feel my best when my pulse is low. My mother's pulse is always low so I guess it runs in the family. Has your blood pressure always been like that? If so then that is your normal pressure and not considered low.

      It's so hard to believe that you are ok when you experience a lots of simptoms and still doctors don't have any answer for you ! I've done blood work too checking the level of the sugar and any possible anemia but all was clear! Now I'm just trying to convince myself that's because of anxiety! Can anxiety make you feel super tired, like you are going to fall all day long ??

      Yep, it certainly can. I am facing another health challenge right now...and all I want to do is lie down.

      The best doctor to go to for anxiety if yours isn't familiar with anxiety, is a psychiatrist. That is their field, and they will spot anxiety quickly. They are also medical doctors, so they can prescribe meds if needed.

      Anxiety is tough especially at the beginning. It's symptoms are many, more than you would believe. It might help to spend some time reading other anxiety discussions on this forum. You are not alone, dear girl.

      The reason for the physical symptoms is the same for all of us...anxiety. That's what it does. Go to a doctor that handles anxiety!

      If you read through other discussions here, you will see that the search for a physical reason is fruitless.

      More likely to be the propranolol, honey. It lowers blood pressure and pulse rate.

      Go back to your PC and tell her/him the side effects you're getting from propranolol.

      Love Tess x
