Please help before I go crazy
« on: August 25, 2014, 11:32:59 PM »
Hello, my name is Alicia, I'm 25 years old, and for the last two and a half years I've been experiencing absolutely terrifying symptoms. I've been told by doctors that it's a severe anxiety but none of the 10 different medications I've tried has helped, and I'm convinced it's something else. Here is a list of what I've been experiencing:

Constant feeling of almost fainting
Disconnected, feeling unreal, depersonalization
Body aches, mostly in the hips and legs
Numbness, tingling, tickling, and coldness in arms, legs, hands, and feet
Pounding heart, palpitations
Nausea, vomiting
Chronic back pain
Hot flashes
Extreme exhaustion
Lack of motivation
Insomnia, restless sleep
Overwhelming sadness
Phobic feelings towards illness or death
Chronic hip pain
Heaviness throughout body
Constant worry
Panic attacks
Difficulty concentrating or remembering things

Does anybody else out there deal with this? Please help, it's gotten to the point where I would almost rather be dead because this is no life to live. I used to be so social and active and now I don't do anything. I have two kids and I'm not the mother I could be. I don't know what to do anymore, I've basically given up on finding an answer

Hi AliciaAnn,

Yes everything you listed is exactly what I have felt and more and each day it is always something and it is scary and we think the worse and it can last for years if not treated but with you like some of us meds don't work and honestly I see many in chat say they have tried this med or that med and they are still the same and I did the same and the meds didn't help and I would feel defeated and scared.

If you have had testing done and the doctors say it is anxiety then that is what it is and most of the time anxiety isn't alone you will have Hypochondria or Health Anxiety, Depression, Panic and more so all these have body symptoms and there are 100's of symptoms and then our minds always think the worse.

Have you done  Therapy along with the meds?  I know I need more help myself as does everyone on this site, I have seen many success stories so there is HOPE!

Join chat and it may help you but Please read through the forums they will help you they sure have helped me.

Take care,
