Hi Kia381, as I was reading your post I couldn't believe how much you are going thru exactly the same issues as I am! My doctor hasn't said the I suffer from anxiety but I'm in the exact same place you are. I just found this website a few minutes ago and couldn't believe that I was reading what I was about to write. I hope we could both find some support and answers here :)

Hi. From what you are saying you need a therapist to help sort your feelings. I see a therapist who helps me. i suffer from anxiety also. I started taking Paxil a few weeks ago. They say you need at least 6 weeks to notice any difference from the meds. You need help with your anxiety. Good Luck.

Did it give you diahreaa and headaches

I sure did...there were times I woke up from my sleep and had pins and needles in both arms and my tongue was numb...I was so wound up, I went to the hospital and my ekg was slightly abnormal...anxiety can do crazy things to your body. But, once you recognize what sets you off, you can control the will still a little nervous, but you won't have a full blown anxiety attack.

No headaches after the first few days. It has helped with constipation. No diahrea.

I had very similar issues beginning a little over a year ago...i went to the er 3 times in one weekend because I thought I was going to drop dead from a heart attack...I had all the same test as well as an echo to make sure I was ok...every doctor I went to said the same thing...anxiety...I struggled so long because I really couldn't believe it...but, once I accepted it was anxiety, I started to pay attention to my body...once I felt even a little panicked, I started to breath it out and repeat to myself, "There's nothing wrong with me." I haven't had a panic attack in months...I feel very much in control now. I am not saying that this is your solution or that I will happen overnight (because Lord knows it took me months to get it), but this helped me (without meds)...maybe it can help you. Good luck...I hope you find something that works soon so your quality of life returns. And just know, you are not alone. :)
