Escaping my own mind

Ok...so years ago I got hurt roller blading. I fell on a speed bump on my tailbone area. Needless to say I had to do therapy for a while. I didn't finish it...fast forward to now I have put on weight and I began sewing in a terrible posture. My sciatica nerve started acting up again. I focused on it 1 day and its Been 4 days. I goggled stuff convinced myself of spinal tumors, blood clots. ..it's taking over me. It's like If I'm busy I have no pain. The moment I slow down think about it. ..you guessed it it hurts all of a sudden then my anxiety is TERRIBLE. I just need to talk it out, imy scared to death and I hate this feeling

  • Hello. I am in a similar situation. I have had a bad back since a compression fracture 20 yrs ago. Recently I too have gained some weight and I'm having sciatica issues. It's hard to distinguish what's sciatica and what's anxiety, though. Dr Google is the worst thing you can do. It will scare you to death. I know if I lost weight it would certainly help but it's hard to be motivated when I'm anxious all the time. Hang in there. You are not alone.

  • That's how I feel. It's hard to get up and get moving when I'm in constant fear and worry. I even went as far as thinking it was bone cancer and I have just been a wreck

  • Stay off google ( of course I'm preaching to myself now)! It will drive you insane.
