I have suffered from anxiety and depression for over 15 years. It was controlled just fine with Meds until about 2 years ago. Now it's all going down hill. I also have chronic fatigue syndrome, severe GERD, fibromyalgia, TMJ, IBS, and carpal tunnel to name a few. Over the last 2 months it's really gotten bad. I stay stressed out and cannot relax at all. I stay so tense. Tried Acupunture for several weeks and didn't help. Tried EMDR therapy and it didn't work. I have constant pressure in my chest and sometimes chest pain, shortness of breath that feels like I have had the breath knocked out of me for just a second or two at a time and hurt and ache in upper and middle back. Dizzy, nauseated, trouble concentrating and literally just can't function. And all I do is sit on the couch or bed with heating pads on chest and back. Every time I get up from the couch or bed and start walking I feel so funny and heart starts pounding/racing and I feel like I'm gonna have a heart attack or something. I have had several EKG's, actually had 3 last week, chest X-rays and blood work and ECHO on my heart too. All tests, so far, have been normal. And tomorrow I have a nuclear stress test. I'm scared because since I can't hardly move without my heart racing out of control, I don't know how I'm gonna be able to walk on the treadmill. I have been on Meds for over 15 years and it's just like they have quit working. I can't take care of my family like I need to. They don't understand why I can't just snap out of whatever is wrong with me. It's really aggravating that I can't make them understand how scary all these feelings are. And every time I get a test back that is normal, that makes them think even more nothing is wrong with me. I have no support at all. They always say it's all the Meds I'm taking, that I need to just quit taking them. But I can't do that. I see no light at the end of the tunnel. I'm just existing, not living and it's awful. I want to be there for my kids and husband the way I'm supposed To be, but it is just impossible right now.
