I just now got insurance back with my work, so counseling will be something I will start doing again. It did help me a long time ago, but of course once i started feeling a little better I thought i was cured. But I never am cured, because all of a sudden something new comes along and just takes me down with it.
Thank you for getting back with me, and I'm sorry to hear about your boy. I couldn't imagine.
I have had blood work done, I even had CT and CAT scans, Everything is okay. The doctors look at me like I'm crazy, which i could be haha. Honestly all of these problems really started occurring once I stopped taking SSRI's about a year and a half ago. Which is why i have a hard time starting new Meds now. I'm actually scared to take meds now.
I'm a mess
In my experience with anxiety, I have noticed that it can pretty much manifest itself in almost any way imaginable. For me, I would stop worrying about a particular symptom or worry only to have another one replace it.
Throughout your experience with it, have you ever been to counseling? I know for me, this helped tremendously. I believe we tend to fear what we don't understand and confronting anxiety is no different. By learning about it, the anxiety became extremely manageable and I recognized it for what it was. Keep us posted!
I'm sorry for your struggles with anxiety. It's quite terrible & difficult to live with.
It's amazing how many strange symptoms can occur from the rushes of adrenaline & cortisol & whatever else. I usually look up a new symptom to see if it's anxiety.
I have experienced those strange shifts in reality you describe. When my baby boy was in NICU (he died at 2 weeks, which is the reason for my recent upswing of anxiety that has been the worst of my life), every time I scrubbed in, I felt like the floor was tilting. Luckily, other than that, I was very calm, especially when with him. But now, almost 6 months later, I've had so many overwhelming panic attacks & strange symptoms.
I've been to doc several times, & all checks out except low vitamin D. Meds & supplements are helping. I recommend getting blood work, because confirming that you have no serious health problem will make you feel better, & you might have some chemicals out of balance aggravating the anxiety.
