Why is anxiety so hard to deal with?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Lately I haven't been myself. I've been worrying about dying constantly and my heart stopping! I don't know why I feel like my heart is going to give up on me. I went to the hospital a few times. They even kept me over night and ran a few extra test. In which they all came back fine. I'm worried that each hospital I've been to has missed something (4 hospitals) . I don't know if I'm letting my anxiety get the best of me but I need some answers. I've been prescribed Xanax to calm me but i haven't taken it yet. I just feel like it won't help me. I'm trying to convince myself that my health is great but it's hard when it seems like something is wrong with me. Does anyone else feel this way?

    Oh honey.. I know how you feel. I haven't been to four different hospital but last week I went to the main one here in town thst I work for and I feel like stoll something is wrong... all day I've felt off. I keep having this weird pressure and feeling in my head and I feel like I have a hard time talking or doing anything and it freaks me out thinking I have a brian tumor... I had a CT scan of my head down last Thursday and everything was clear and I felt so good until a couple days ago... I also was given pristq to help with my anxiety and depression and I haven't taken it yet just because I've been scared. When I went to the ER I was told I had bells palsy as well and was put on meds for that and today was my last day on it and I didn't want to mix the two together.... I am going to try tomorrow morning and take it but I'm nervous..

    The Xanax should help calm your mind and ease your worry.

    I know exactly how u feel. I've always been anxious but it didn't ever bother me until the point I thought I was actually dying. In January I just couldn't stop worrying about my health I'm an ex smoker who it's 3 stone over weight but am active. I thought I was having a heart attack I had all the symptoms I've seen a few doctors and been to hospital to they done ecg blood tests and chest xray and not one of them believes it's my heart. But they won't do more investigation saying that it's a waste of time and in the end will make the anxiety worse. Recently been having heart flutters I've never had then before. Theses symptoms are all day every day I hate this so much
