Just wanted to post to whine about my symptoms that are driving me NUTS. I get this weird numbness / tightness around my mouth, and tight band around my forehead, neck soreness, and sometimes even the "lump in the throat" feeling.
My Dr. says it's all anxiety related ("Classic anxiety symptoms" as he calls it) and sent me on my way with a low dosage of Zoloft. I have a followup appointment with him on the 30th of April.
I am trying SO HARD to believe him, that this is all anxiety, but I am not doing well with it. I have a good day or two and then WHAM all the weird numbness or tightness comes back and sends me into full speed anxiety.
Even had heart palpitations in the shower today. Monday morning, new week and I have to have freaking heart palpitations in the shower for no good reason.
This crap is REALLY getting old. Been going on for a good 7 weeks now and I am sick of it. Is this just stress? Can it be for so long? Everything I read here says YES. Everything my Doc says is YES.
I am just tired of it and want it to stop.
Thanks for reading my rant. I'll go about my day now. :)
