Hi I am new to this forum but not anxiety. I am 26 and have suffered since I was 20. It took me about 2 years to figure out what was going on(tense muscles, worrying, panic attacks). I am on 1 mg Klonopin for the last 3 years once daily and up to a couple weeks ago it has helped so much I barely noticed anything except for the occasion fear out of no where.
About 4 months ago I took on a new job as a broker. Before that I worked with my family for 3 years and had never worked for anyone else my whole live. I also moved 3 hours away from family and friends. I have never been away from my close friends or family before. Recently I have been working alot and also am starting too have money problems with many bills to pay. I would say that I have been under sever stress the last month especially. About two weeks ago I noticed twitching in my muscles all over my body form by arms,neck,back, calves ect. This lasted for about a week and I was getting really worried because I started to Google things to find out what the heck is going on and you know the normal things came up. ALS, MS ect ect. Well this past weekend my GF came up and visited and the next morning she said during the night every half hour or so I would involuntary shake my arm or legs just enough that she could feel the bed move, just a little twitch. It is like when your just about ready to fall alseep and jump. I said wow thats weird I have been having spasms all week for no reason. Then she proceeded to tell me I have been doing it the last 2-3 months to which she had never mentioned ii before!! Now I was really freaking out. Not only are my muscles jumping under my skin, but now I am tensing up and involuntary moving my muscles while sleeping! Well wouldn't you know it 1 day after she told me it i started doing the involuntary slight movements while awake now! finger twitching, foot twitching, neck movement, facial movements, arm twitching. I am scared to death. And now it seems like I am forgetting things like names of streets or places I ate at a week ago without thinking hard about it. (I think that I have always did this but now that I am so stressed about the other things, that I am magnifying my problems by thinking that I am forgetting more but really not maybe.) Anyway these slight involuntary movements really got me worried, and so does the memory thing but like I said I might forget 2 things during the whole day and then attribute that to talk myself into thinking I might have a brain tumor or something. Anyway if anyone can help I would really appreciate. I am feeling really down and am just not myself at all I just was 2 weeks ago before these spasms started.
