Hi everyone, I know I've been posting alot lately but I'm in desperate need of advice/reassurance. I'm currently going through an extremely traumatic event, similar to one that I had last year. I'm having tons of physical symptoms and feel like I'm dying. I'll list my symptoms below:
-Nausea (I'm emetephobic so this is really tough)
-Headache (a really bad one that's lasted for days)
-Rash/Hives all over my chest and stomach (never had this before)
-Sharp pain in lower right side
-Tightness in throat
I've also been having panic attacks every single day. I feel like I am going to die. I'm so anxious and nothing is helping. I tried ativan (didn't really help), advil for the headache (helped slightly but not fully), and I've been taking prescription anti nausea which helps alot with the nausea. I am so traumatized and feel so sick, I don't know what to do with myself. I do cbt but my anxiety has gotten to such a high level that the strategies I learned are not working. I keep thinking I'm gonna go into anaphylactic shock, have menengitis, appendicitis, suffocate or lose my mind. I'm in desperate need of help.
