I have not been on this forum in months because I was taking Haldol which almost completely relieved my GAD. However, just recently I stopped taking it because it caused me to gain a TON of weight.
Since I stopped taking it I have been an anxious wreck and decided to come on here.
My question is unusual and a little embarrassing. I've read all the symptoms of GAD from countless sources and I have never found one of the symptoms that I experience. I still get all of the typical symptoms: racing heart, tightening of the chest, tense muscles, racing thoughts, etc...but I also feel an extreme amount of anxiety in my butt. My therapist calls it my "butt anxiety." When I feel an anxiety attack coming on, the first place I feel it is in my butt, followed by all other symptoms previously described. I've looked all over the internet looking for anyone who experiences the same extremely unpleasant sensation, and I've found nothing. I do get GI issues and diarrhea along with it. Anyway, is there anyone else out there who experiences "butt anxiety?" I feel like such a weirdo.
