Anxiety symptoms severe

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety symptoms severe


Avatar f tn Anxiety can cause all kinds of symptoms. Having had it bad enough to be confined in a Psych Hospital several times I can offer you the hope that you need not suffer as you do.Get some professional help, no diagnosis on here at present with very similar conditions to yours.I can relate to how bad you feel, but thanks to meds/therapy I cope very well. Life will be good for you again if you get your Doc/Psych involved. No shame in that. Best wishes.George.
Avatar n tn Since then there have been no signs or symptoms. I have really bad anxiety. i feel like i could have some kind of STD sitting in my body and I dont even know it. How long would it take for visual signs to appear. Am I at risk for an STD and should i go get tested. I am sick to my stomach right now. HELP!
Avatar f tn It is easy to fear that you have some medical problem and focus on your symptoms. Anxiety loves fear and will feed into it. Try relaxation breathing when you are feeling anxious this can disrupt the electric impulses in your brain and when you start to break that pattern it can help to calm your mind. If you are not seeing a counselor I suggest you to look into finding one. Therapy is wonderful and can help to teach you techniques and strategies to get through and manage your anxiety.
Avatar f tn My honest opinion from my own experience is that medications alone don't treat anxiety as well as when they are used in conjuction with cognitive behavorial therapy. While the meds due help with the symptoms of anxiety they don't help you learn the cause or how teach you how to cope without needing them. :-) I have used valium when needed and many here have used xanax, ativan or klonopin.
Avatar f tn I'm an 18 year old girl diagnosed with severe anxiety and my doctor has given me medications to help, but I still feel lost because I've been to the ER more times than I'd like to count on behalf of not being able to breathe, chest tightness, and "feeling like I'm going to die" and heart palpitations, but every single doctor I visit tells me it's anxiety. The anxiety medications I have been given have not helped much.

Avatar n tn When I found out that that was a symptom, I started getting severe anxiety that has made it much worse and it won't go away. I have become addicted to looking up HIV symptoms, and keep noticing new one that I might have. I feel weak sometimes and I have lost 5 pounds, but this could be due to the fact that when I get severe anxiety I cannot eat (I took one bite of my breakfast and threw up yesterday morning), and all I want to do is sleep. I got tested about 2 weeks after and was negative.
Avatar m tn Another important thing that I noted was that my skin is very very dry after I take a shower and I only had two sweating nights without fever. I'd like to ask whether these symptoms can be hiv related or they are due to severe anxiety. In addition, is an ECLIA negative test (7th week) conclusive or should I wait until 3 months after risk? Should I trust my blood test? If there is no fever, is it an strong indicator that I didn't catch hiv? Could it be anxiety related?
Avatar n tn I have had severe anxiety problems. All the same symptoms as you, dizzyness, sweating palms, heart palpatations, feel like im going to die, feeling wierd pains in my head, back, legs, ect, wonder whats wrong with me. Wonder if the doctor missed diagnosing me with something that is serious. All the doctors I have seen have done all kinds of test and they all came back normal. They all say the same thing I have anxiety. Said I should be on Meds.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you have a head or chest cold, and some pretty severe anxiety related to your symptoms. You describe pretty classic health anxiety symptoms. It also sounds like perhaps you are doing a good bit of googling? How else could you have come to the conclusiion that maybe you have lactic acidosis? Googling is the very worst thing you can do for health anxiety, it is only going to fuel your panic.
Avatar m tn most people here reporting anxiety have those symptoms too! I personally have those symptoms and I am suffering from severe anxiety in the past 6 months.I even trembe unconsciously sometimes.Anxiety can cause lots of symptoms.Don't let that make you think that you have some illness wich you don't.You should listen to your doctor or if you want a second oppinion you could consault another one.
Avatar m tn I have severe panic disorder and anxiety.
580667 tn?1234584552 I can't help but think these symptoms are stemming from something other than my anxiety--something more serious. They make me feel really uneasy and I start to obsess over every pain/discomfort I have during the day. Is this typical of an anxiety disorder? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!
Avatar f tn I went into extreme depression (sarafem and xanax helped). I had severe anxiety that actually comes and goes. I only use 1 xanax at night maybe twice a week for sleeping purposes. I am currently not on any antidepressants. My question is I starting in September I the anxiety came back and got so much worse during the holidays. Along with the anxious, pry me off the ceiling feeling, I have muscle twitches and feel so weak and it's difficult for me to talk.
Avatar n tn Is one of the symptoms of an anxiety disorder a nervous chest? I constantly get butterflies in my stomach and chest, I have had heart tests and everything is fine. I am on Paxil 20 mg that cleared up the insomnia, crying spells, trouble swallowing na d dizziness (for the most part). It is my busy season at work and I am getting the chest nervousness and discomfort as well as neck aches. Is this common with anxiety? Even though I am on 20 mg Paxil? Thanks.
Avatar m tn I am a 31 year old male who has just started to suffer from anxiety. The symptoms to me are severe. It started 7 weeks ago after a night out drinking. I was stupid and drank way too much. My symptoms include a constant state of panic and head pressure, including slight dizziness and eye pressure. I have had a few episodes where I wake up and I feel very distant from myself. Extremely panicked and unable to keep my thoughts controlled. Very scary.
Avatar f tn Yes. i have had severe anxiety for the past 20 years. Long huh? you know what? the symptom are varied and can dissapate increase and disappear altogether only to be replaced by a new set ! That is how they work! If you have ruled out heart and brain illness then you need not worry because you wont die from this. You just need to manage it or reduce it by accepting it is there . adding worry causes further anxiety increasing the chances of recurring symptoms or new ones!
Avatar f tn Try to not get all caught up in your symptoms, because that tends to make things worse. Instead, go after the anxiety. If you succeed, the symptoms should lessen or go away entirely.
Avatar n tn Hi. I am a 23 yr. old female looking for some advice on concerning symptoms. I am a law student, extremely stressed most of the time and have suffered anxiety all of my life. I have always thought I was sick since I was 8 yrs. old i would constantly take my temp., etc. When I was 5 I was actually hospitalized because they thought I had cancer, turned out to be stress from my parents divorce.
Avatar n tn When I was very stressed ( a really traumatic event was happening in my life and I tried to minimize it and so the stress was building up because I wasn't dealing with it) I got really sick with stress and anxiety and then depression followed.
398624 tn?1266273049 Does anybody think that anxiety could present itself with same symptoms as Meniere's Disease? Doctor diagnosed me with Meniere's, but after I had normal ENG, he now knows it's not Menieres.
Avatar m tn Does anyone else have these kind of symptoms due to anxiety? I realize that anxiety can cause very real symptoms. But I also know that symptoms can drive anxiety levels. I really don't know what is happening with my body. I've always been a mentally strong person but I reall like I am going to lose it just about every day. Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks.
