  • Have you had your bloods checked?

    I sometimes shake when I'm anxious, I was like it in the doctors yesterday x

  • Yeh I've had loads of blood taken and a sugar one too and they were all's really weird and scary!! X

  • It's not nice at all is it

    Do you get any other symptoms? X

  • Yeh I get muscle spasms aswell tooth grinding.. Random pains and chest pain and sometimes I get the feeling I can't swollow and that sends me into a panick ๐Ÿ™ˆ X

  • I get those too and loads more, I grind my teeth.

    Are you getting any help from doctors or therapy? X

  • The doctor gave me venlafaxine but I'm not taking them.. And I had cbt but my therapist cut me off she said she felt I didn't need to carry on with anymore! X

  • Any reason why your not taking them?

    That's not right, if you felt that you needed the help then she should have continued. Can you see someone else? X

  • I read the side effects ๐Ÿ™ˆ I know I shouldn't but I tried one sertraline and I didn't sleep for 2 days.. It did help me I do think I needed more.. I'm going back to the doctors tomorrow.. I've been taking magnesium which has really helped me aswell x

  • That's exactly what I'm like jess xxx

  • Horrible isn't it! How are you today? Xx

  • Hey twin :) I get the shakiness when I need to eat something sugary, when I get the shakes I know its chocolate time lol #galaxyBar. Xx

  • Hey sister!! You okay? How have you been? You know I think I've always been a shaky person but now I have health anxiety it really bothers me it does calm down abit after I eat but I can still feel it ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ x

  • Yeah im doing ok today I have just bought some bachs rescue remedy sprays and drops to see if it helps my health anxiety is crazy now its that bad im taking loratadine everyday for allergies cos I think im allergic to my food and the material my clothes are made from, this health anxiety is turning me into some crazy woman. Lol xx

  • Omg I was actually reading about that stuff it's ment to work really well!! Let me know how you get on with it.. I read your post you put up about post partum.. Have you seen doctor? Reading that reminded me of Stacey on eastenders xx

  • I'm gonna book appointment with doc I have been like that since second baby I also have mania episodes where I'm fine and nothing will get me down then after a couple of hours I'm back to been an emotional wreck the other day I was walking to the shop and this voice inside my head told me that somebody was following me home and all the way home I was constantly looking over my shoulder only to find there was no one behind me it really scared me

  • Wow that's so sad ๐Ÿ˜ข Yeh you get your self to the doctors asap and get that sorted ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜ xx

  • Yeah I will get my self sorted. Xx

    What happened with your cbt therapist I thought you was getting better with your health anxiety.

  • I was doing really well and then it's creeped back and I don't really use the teqnique they taught me to do.. But I've been doing it now and I'm a lot better I don't think I'm ill I just don't like the shakes lol x

  • I tried bachs rescue remedy and it does helpย with some symptoms it doesnt make me think im healthy tho I still think im ill I just dont get alot of physical symptoms what teqnique did they teach you. Xx

  • It must be a family thing!! My brother just came to my house and I told him that I was going to the doctors because I shake and he said I shake to.. Showed me his hands and they are worse than mine!! I feel relieved โ˜บ๏ธ

  • So it's true..It is good to talk. Had you not have spoken to him you'd still be worrying now. Glad your feeling relieved xx

  • Omg I know I'm a nightmare I get scared to say what's wrong with me coz I think they'll be like shut up.. But now I think they are actually trying to help me! โ˜บ๏ธ X

  • They aren't gonna like you feeling like you do and them not being able to help you to fight this so they will want to help you in any other way they can so that you can fight this. Itwon't seem to them like they are doing much at all but to you it will make such a difference talking to them and knowing they are there like the chat with your brother. He won't really know how much he just helped you no matter how much you tell him but you do xx

  • I know just hearing those words I shake to was an instant relief and then seeing he wasn't just saying it to shut me up he shakes way more than me ๐Ÿ™ˆ It's really comforting talking to people about this and knowing there are people who are like me! Thankyou so much xx

  • Very tired but not too bad...yet. How's you xxx

  • I'm okay today Thankyou.. Probably coz I know I'm going to the doctors ๐Ÿ˜‚!! No I've been doing really well thankyou xx

  • Aw that's excellent honey.... Well chuffed for u xxx

  • I shake too and I get the sugar drop feeling often as well, I also have had tests and all fine. I look at everyone's hands to see if they shake I'm kind of obsessed with it lol

  • Omg I look at people aswell to see if they shake ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's horrible I'm literally going mad!! X
