I've suffered from anxiety for a very longtime. I had a very turbulant upbringing.
I don’t know if I have something physically wrong or a mental disorder. But the symptoms come and go but here a lot and a strong that makes me think it's a physical issue - this is why I’ve had various tests done. (Thyroid, Diabetes, Liver came back ok). Testosterone was LOW/Normal 12, 15. DHEAS were high (outside the range) and my Cortisol was high and out the range at about 650.
I find it extremely difficult with seeing people I don’t know or even family too. Small things stress me out a lot like seeing grey hairs appearing or things play on my mind a lot.
I can feel ok at times and other times very happy when other times I want to be left alone and feel really bad.
My throat can feel like its really stiff hard to talk. hands clench at night making them really stiff like ive got althritis. Feeling bugs in my hair sensation. Slight buzzing in my foot. I sweat a lot - more than a normal person would. I feel blank minded at times - cant think at all - when other times im flooded with ideas or thoughts.
I'm treating myself with 5htp which i take a couple of times a week - it does help a bit. But thinking about going to the doctors soon.
Hoping for ideas and advice.
