Hi I'm new and I've been having symptoms and I don't know what is happening. When I was 12 I had an eating disorder and anxiety. I got over the eating disorder but the anxiety got worse and I've been dealing with it for about 2 years now. I used to have panic attacks almost every day and became depressed and missed A LOT of school. This summer I started seeing a new physiologist and things got a lot better in September I was going to school every day and I felt so good! But around the same time that things were getting better I started having headaches every day. I wake up with them in the morning and most of the time they carried on in the day. Also at school I find it really difficult to read and take in anything the teacher says and my hand writing started getting really bad. The school noticed and they had me tested for dyslexia but the educational physiologist said that it can't have happend so quickly. They didn't know what to do and I couldn't do anything in class. The headaches are only on the right side and they started getting worse and I have this squeezing pain behind my right ear I also felt sick and dizzy when it got bad. My mum took me to the GP and she said it was tension headaches from the anxiety. But I didn't understand why it was only on one side of my head and my anxiety has gotten so much better. Then my symptoms started getting worse and my right hand won't stop twitching, my hands and feet fall asleep all the time, my eyes go bleary sometimes, I'm tied all the time, my memory used to be so good and now I can't remember what I had for breakfast most days, I'm very slow and I find it difficult to have a conversation with more then two people. I haven't been to school for almost 5 weeks now because I can't do anything. My mum kept taking me back to the doctors and they did lots of blood tests, an CT scan and a MRI scan and they are all normal. They say it's just anxiety but I just don't understand how... They say I keep denying it but I know that I've still got anxiety I just feel like it's gotten a lot better. Please help.. Are these normal symptoms of anxiety?? Thank you!!! ((((:
