I'm so exhausted from these symptoms. I am a smart woman, my life is not bad at all but I have this demon called GAD that follows me everywhere. I have suffered with anxiety since I was 15. I'm 36 now. It's just gotten worse as my life gets better. Makes no dang sense! I'm battling serious breathing issues, my body just will not relax, horrible muscle tension in shoulders, neck, head pressure, which causes foggy brain and just makes me miserable. I have mitral valve regurgitation/ gastritis/ IBS. All this is due to anxiety I am certain. I did have a rough life prior to 2015. I have health anxiety because of all these symptoms. I know if I was breathing right I wouldn't be so tense. Apparently I grind and clench my jaws without realizing it. Why is my body made like this! I mean yes my mind never shuts off but not all of its negative. I am trying my hardest and I would rather die than take those dang anti anxiety pills that make you feel like a zombie. I get hypnosis tomorrow and I am praying this helps! Anyone else?
