Looking for some advice and answers - so sorry for being annoying, but I'm fed up of being in the fear and anxiety circle of whether I have brain problems or anxiety. How long do I give myself to see if my problems are illness related or whether they are anxiety related? How do I know the difference between an innocent stabbing pain or a cramp feeling or whether it is a medical ddisaster?????
Trying to remember back when I first got the pain and I was stressed with Open University studies, my 'geeky' son starting secondary school and money, I had cold sores on both sides of lips, pressure headaches, tiredness and was then hit with this stabbing pain that has thrown me into the anxiety pit of despair, although I am so much calming than I was 3 months ago, but it doesn't take much to freak me out now and I think all the time that I may collapse when driving or going to the toilet!!! But could these ongoing pains and cramp/zaps/weird sensations be an illness that I must see a doctor about.
How do you all tell the difference???? Think I may be back at doctors again on Monday, but I'm sure they think I'm nuts.
