Hypochondria and anxiety have once again taken over my life
This has been going on since I was a little girl - but the panic attacks didn't start until I was 19 - I am 32 now. This has come and gone for as long as I remember. The problem now is that I have a 3 year old and and 1 year old - I need to be there for them and not spending time and energy worrying about myself. My husband says it is like taking care the 3 kids
For the last week or so my face feels almost numb - but really more of skin tightness - on both cheeks and between my nose and lips. Of course my mind says brain tumor or MS. And then I have had a weird headache so it is probably a tumor lol. I can sit and laugh about how ridiculous I sound - but it is awful. I know these face sensations are a symptom of anxiety - but this is one I have never had before. Just so I feel better - has anyone else had this weird almost numb tight face feeling? It was coming and going a few times a day - and now it has been almost constant all evening - I am sure because I am dwelling on it. I hate this cycle. It never ends !
