HOW LONG HAVE YOUR PHYSICAL ANXIETY SYMPTOMS LASTED?
« on: March 17, 2014, 03:21:19 PM »
My physical anxiety symptoms have lasted everyday for about 3.5 months. They are:

Random Muscle and Joint Pains throughout body. The pains are not too severe
Hands and Fingers Burning
Numbness in Fingers at night in bed
SOme lower back pain occasionally
Some tingling in legs and feet
Eyelid and toe twitching from time to time
A few Sciatica type pains in legs
Warmth feeling occasionally in top of head
I can only get 4-5 hours of sleep at night


How long did yours take to fully go away?

I'm going on 8 months now with maybe a streak of 4 straight days as the longest without symptoms. I always fall back into them though.

I haven't had a panic attack in about two weeks (and it was fairly minor.) Sometimes they last a few minutes, sometimes hours.

I finally had to change the meds I was taking because they would hit out of nowhere.

They got really bad for me starting two years ago.  Some have gotten better (tingling, burning, buzzing) others worse (sore limbs, cognitive abilities, etc.) so not sure what to say, but that's the summary.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

I have had back pain and then abdominal pain too on and off for quite some time. (I do not know if it is related to the fact that I have had fibromyalgia for 23 yrs now).
TMJ tooth pain for over two years --non-stop.
I get headaches quite often (I have sinus issues though and allergies).
I have left leg pain (but then I have had a blood clot in my leg and it is now chronic vein insufficiency).
I have had a few other issues too that come and go.
I wish I could put a time on them. The back and abdominal pain are what I am experiencing at the moment. (I think it has to do with muscle tension and posture).

It depends - some last for hours, some last for months.  I rarely have zero symptoms of anything, but they're always changing!  Except for the chronic pain but I don't think that's anxiety related, since it seems to mostly have to do with physical issues (how much I walk, sleep, etc).  That never goes anywhere :/  On the other hand, it seems to have no cause so maybe it is related.
