I would recommend getting some meds and doing some exercise. Iv been where you are it's not nice! You need to change your thought patterns as you are locked in that zone. The only way I can escape it is through meds and exercise.
Welcome to the forum. There are a lot of really helpful people on this site as I am sure you will find. I feel for you that is for sure. I've experienced a prickly sensation on the skin of my legs for 3 years constantly and a surging feeling through my chest (kind of like adrenaline), except for when I am in bed (not sure why). I've had this before as well, but it went away. This bout is just not leaving and it drives me nuts.Has your doctor given you any idea as to what the problem might be? Anxiety makes everything worse, so working on that is really important. Have you read the 100 symptoms of anxiety, because if not it would be a good idea? Most of what you have mentioned is on that list. I find reading self help books, walking and stretching helpful. There is a book by a doctor named Dr. Sarno that I am reading right now and it is giving me some hope. It's called the Mind/Body Connection, or something close to that. I don't have it with me. Feel well and let us know how every goes.
I had a long list of symptoms like you, I was going to the doctor with all of it which made his job of finding what was wrong so much more difficult. I wouldn't get out of bed, I was very depressed and couldn't see an end to any if it. I thought I was dying. The thing is once you in that place it's hard to come out of it! I eventually after long fighting it agreed to go on some Meds which helped take my mind off it all and got down the gym - it all helped and a lot of my symptoms disappeared, leaving a few which were real and were diagnosed. Of course they were nothing bad what so ever.My anxiety now comes in cycles and happens during winter but now I'm aware of it, it is easier to deal with but I still get myself worked up. But I will never get as bad as I was. Iv just asked to be put on meds with what I'm going through now and will get to the gym once the meds kick in
I too have been where you are and I am so sorry you have to be there. I also have had about every symptom you have listed! I ask to be put on meds and it has helped me alot but the best thing I did was get out and do some form of exercise even if you can only start to walk out to the street and back. Slowly increase what you do everyday till you are active again and I promise you that this too shall pass. I do not believe you ever completely get rid of this curse, you just learn to control it. Doing things, no matter what you decide to do, takes your mind off "thinking" and slowly your symptoms will just go away. Plus keep coming back to this forum when you start feeling that anxiety creeping up on you. The people here are life savers!
