Shakiness

Is shaking a symptom of anxiety? It literally feels like my sugar levels are right down even if I eat nothing helps 😁😁

Have you had your bloods checked?

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 🙈 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

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 ☺️

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 🙈 It's really comforting talking to people about this and knowing there are people who are like me! Thankyou so much xx
