Keep your heads up!

Finally got to go to the doctor and figured out what caused all my anxiety! I feel so relieved! I am praying that everyone on this anxiety support group finds their peace!

I was deficient on vitamin B12 which causes a person to have anxiety. I also was on steroids for two months that also causes bad anxiety. My first panic/anxiety attack was 8 years ago my doctor said it was because I was pre-menopausal this was at age 38. I thought no way she can be right, but she was...and I have went through menopause at an early age. I take medicine for anxiety. Anyway, after medicine and a year spent in my house I got over it. Then it came back the beginning of this year. ..Iand finally the doctor figured it out after my blood work. YAY!

Sometimes the simplest of things that is missed or overlooked can be the cause of much misery. I'm glad you're getting it sorted.

It's always in the back of my mind, and that is the worst part...just knowing how it feels and that it could come back without warning. I told my doctor the my anxiety comes from health and the fear of dying he assured me that my blood work and vitals was excellent. Maybe I just needed that extra reassurance. 🙂

How low was your vitamin b12 levels? I was extremely deficient the when I first had my anxiety and my levels were below 115, anxiety went away for a while and now it's back and I had my b12 checked and they say it's normal at 417 but im wondering if it is still the deficiency that's causing it. Someone's just feel so spaced out its weird and annoying! Has your anxiety gone away now then?xx

Honestly I can't remember my number but I promise to check and get back with you. I haven't had many anxiety spells since I started a high alkaline diet and added vitamins. i have had one slight anxiety spell last week but this week I have felt great. I am hoping I never have another one

WOW! How did you raise your B12 levels? Pills ? Liquids?

Kimberley, that's great. Unless you know what causes it, how can you overcome anxiety? You are on your way now. Not an easy journey but at least the path is in front of you. Good Luck x
