Please guys, i need your support
« on: February 27, 2014, 06:02:07 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm going through quite a tough time and I just need some support and advice on whether what I'm going through is anxiety or something else.

For the last 6 months, I've been experiencing a lot of different symptoms. It seems that as soon as I get over one symptom then another comes along to take its place.

At the moment, the symptom which is causing me a lot of distress is a burning mouth. It's there all the time and is really affecting my ability to sleep.

For the last 6 months, I've also had the other symptoms at one time or another…diarrhoea, constipation, indigestion, hypersensitive hearing, prickly burning skin, waking up with palpitations, feeling as if i'm choking when falling asleep.

I've had various tests over the past 6 months including blood tests, endoscopy etc. And most of the symptoms have dissipated except for this really distressing burning mouth.

With all these symptoms, does this sound like anxiety to any of you? I just seem to freak you and have got myself into a very dark place right now.

Thanks for your help
Cono

Hey Irish guy, I'm so sorry that you're feeling really distressed.  Have you read the list of 100 anxiety symptoms? If you haven't you probably should, as it is a real eye opener. Yes, everything you have mentioned could be anxiety.  What have your doctors said?

What are you doing to deal with your anxiety?

Feel well!

All I can say is that anxiety AND depression can cause '"burning mouth syndrome" (yes, they even have a name for it) so if that is what you are worried about, and you have so many other anxiety symptoms, you can bet it is from anxiety/depression.   I don't know what you can DO about it, but at least you have an idea what's causing it, sometime that in itself helps.  Do you take anything like Xanax, etc?  That may help.

Thank you both very much. I'm trying to do relaxation exercises. And I'm currently on my second week of setraline....all these symptoms were present before I started on it. It doesn't seem to be making a difference to my anxiety levels. I'm in the UK and doctors here aren't keen to prescribe things like Xanax. :(
