I recently have been diagnose with anxiety but I just can't accept that it is anxiety causing all of my problems and symptoms. I am 20 years old and have a daughter of 3 years. I just can't seem to go on another day feeling the way I do its been 2 month now. I have a major amount of pressure in my head and face, my ears click and feel full i also get some Whooshing in my ears at times. I have numbness and pains in my body,my eyes are very sensitive towards light and feel very strange at times. I wake up early every morning finding I can't get back to sleep as a feeling of unwellness comes over me and start getting aches and pains in my arms. My neck aches and shoulders ache I have also had muscle flutters and electric shock like feelings on my top lip and in my back. I can't feel my self having any panic attacks realy but just get a sense of something being wrong in my body and a sense of worry. I have also had stomach problems with the bile and acid reflux. Just wanted to see of anyone else experiences the same symptoms with their anxiety as I am unconvinced that it is what is causing me to be so I'll. The doctors havnt let me have any tests except from bloods and eurine which makes me think they are not doing enough to figure out the cause or ruling out other medical possibilities as I have been to a number of gas and A&E but they keep telling me I'm fine and healthy it's my second day on sertraline but I am fobbed off at taking medication after how much medication they have been putting me on for my symptoms. If I knew what was causing my symptoms and had proof maybe this anxiety wouldn't be a problem as big as it is. Should I actually trust what I am being told even tho i haven't had any tests to do with my head just a blood test and a urine test? Or if there's anyone out there experiencing the same symptoms it would be comforting.
