I was doing so well

I hate it when I have a relaps. I have been doing so well, for about 3 days I've been ok, no panic attacks, no feelin on edge, my anxious feeling wasn't so bad I could handle it.

Until I was watching a film with my husband last night a Hora film, which I do like my hora films, hakf way through the film my anxiety and on edge feeling spcame back so I turned the film off, my heart was all over the place. I thought oh please no not again I've been doing really well. I've even been driving again for first time in over a month and I'm even going back to work tonight.i feel like I've been in this maze found the exit and now I'm back to the begining :( I haven't even needed any medication since Saturday night,that was my last time I had taken it as I've been doing really well Without it.  It's strange how things can trigger your anxiety off :(

Does anybody feel really tired and exhausted really easily? My legs feel heavy and tingerly like I've been walking for miles on end, I'm so tired and I've had a good night sleep more or less, does anybody else get this feeling of exhaustion and the feelings in the legs? Xx

Sorry your feeling like this, it's awful when you begin to do well and then you feel like your right back to square one again. I get this feeling sometimes, my legs really heavy and achey, like I've been running or got the flu, so drained and tired, that can last a few days! Try not to worry so much X x


Brill thank you for ur help, I've only had it a couple of days now so I'm hoping it will be gone by weekend. Thank u again 


That is interesting I get the same feeling in my legs I hope it is anxiety related


I had a few gd days, but all this week has been bad, the dr upped my meds and dont feel gd at all. Hope ur anxiety passes and u start to feel better too x


I know it's not the doctors orders but I'm sure you know your own body, why don't you lower your dose. Im suppose to have one spoonful of my medicine,  but I have half of the measurement I'm suppose to have and it's enough. I then tried a full one and it was too much I felt awful so I, back down to half and I'm happy with it :) hope u get better soon xx


Hi Melanie, I just stuck with my instinct and I am starting to feel a little better. Cause I was reading on another forum that increasing the dose can prolong the anxiety side effects and I defo don't want that, I'm hoping I have turned a corner. Hope u continue to feel better too x
