Hello. Im a 16 year old male who has suffered with anxiety for about 18 months, and BAD anxiety for the last year. The past few weeks have been really tough and scary and I need help. I was in the ER 7 days ago. The Doc didn't do any tests, he just said it was anxiety. I've had multiple blood tests, x-rays, CT scans, MRI's, etc. My symptoms include heavy legs, being unsteady when standing, bad dizziness, very bad fatigue and sluggishness, excessive thirst, brain fog, random bouts of depression, anger, and sadness.. I also have twitches, headaches, TMJ stuff, whooshing in my ear, and other stuff.
For the past week, everyday I feel REALLY, REALLY crappy. I feel like i'm dying, Like the life force that propels mans existence is being sucked from my flesh. I tried to go on a little hike today, I had a headache from eating earlier and then I got really hot and out of breathe and scared. Then I was at a store a few hours later shopping with my mother. (My first time to the mall in months, because I have been feeling so crappy lately)
While at the store, I was fine for about 20 minutes, then BAM! I felt like I was going to pass out. Dizzy, tired, anxious. Now I know these are classic anxiety symptoms blah blah blah. PLEASE understand that I have been feeling LIKE UTTER SH*T EVERYDAY FOR MONTHS. Im only 16, i didn't know this could even happen to me so young. I am seeing a doctor in 4 days, but until then My parents expect me to just go to school and act like everything is fine. To pull from the well, you could say. MY well is dry. I have no energy, every task I do, whether it be to go drive to the store and get groceries for my mom, or hanging out with my friends, or working on my car, anything at all, Has become unmanageably hard to do!! My parents are divorced and Im on bad terms with both of them. They don't understand how much pain I am in. Therapy, acupuncture, and doctors don't seem to help.
I AM VERY worried that all these physical symptoms indicate something seriously wrong with me. I don't get panic attacks like I used to. Now its all purely physical symptoms that turn into me being anxious. I know that these symptoms could be a subconscious manifestation of my fear into my physical body, but I am so fed up with feeling like this and Im scared to die, yet looking forward to the rest death provides.
