Hello,

I'm new here so maybe it's not my place to say. But as someone who suffers from hypochondria, listing out symptoms doesn't really help me it just makes the problems a lot worse.

Just my 2 cents.

Comments:
I felt like my HA got a lot better with acupuncture, cupping, exercise and eating healthier (eliminated bread, sugars, processed food) but I recently got some physical symptoms. Numbness/tingling complete left side for over a week and I have regressed and even had my first panic attack. I am sticking with the Accupuncture and going to start the exercise. I hope the physical stuff was just something random and anxiety related.

Comments:

I was recently pregnant, so I'm still dealing with my body trying to regulate itself. The anxiety itself came out because of the pregnancy, took a break for a few weeks, came back with my period, and has stuck around to keep me company. Everything is made worse because I am not working right now and spend almost all of my days home alone (with my cat) with just a few hours in the evening with my husband. Things have gotten better since I've realized that I probably have somatization disorder.
