Johnnie, I believe that every one of your symptoms are real and that you are feeling everything you say you are. What doesn't jump out to you, is that this is anxiety doing this to you and not a medical issue. Frustrating I know, to say the least. It is literally sucking the life out of you living this way for so long.

It's time to step back and have a plan in mind as to what you can do to change all of this. It can't go on this way or you will be looking back 5 years from now wondering the same thing. Since you haven't seen your doctor for 6 months, why don't you start with a check up and let him know that things aren't changing and that you are still experiencing all these symptoms. See if he might suggest you seeing a therapist for a while to set you on the right path in reaching your goal.

Unless you make up your mind that you really want to get better, this will continue going on. Are you on any medication at this time? Would you be willing to give it a try if the doctor prescribed something that would help you? Those are important questions to answer.

I spent many years Johnnie, just like you, going to the doctor(s) asking for help but not listening. Getting prescription after prescription but afraid to take them as they continued to pile up in my medicine cabinet. I don't know what I was waiting for.. Maybe a miracle that one day I would wake up from this nightmare of symptoms and be completely healed without having to work for it.

It doesn't work that way. Anything worth while requires work, commitment and believing that you will reach your goal. When you are ready, let your doctor know that you mean business this time.

Johnnie, it's because you are nervous that you are feeling those symptoms. I do understand and know how scary it can be. I'm sorry. This is something that will have to be worked on but not when you are in the throws of anxious thoughts.

Have you ever read Jeff1943's posts or responses telling us that "fighting" anxiety isn't the way to go. We have to "accept" that it is not harmful and ignore it, in order for it to go away. Once we give into the fear, it starts a circle of fear begetting fear.

When you say you fight it, what does that really mean? It's still there and still limiting you as to what you can do because the feeling is so overwhelming.

Did you ever read Dr. Claire Weekes Book on Hope & Help for your Nerves? Or at least listen to her videos on YouTube. It will explain in full how "fighting" the feeling will not take it away but rather prolong it.

Oh Johnnie I remember those days all too well with myself. The thing that can help the most is being put on medication that will stop the heart from racing. Stop you from feeling that heart beat. Only then will you be able to go forward. You need to break that cycle and medication is the best way to do that at this time. From there you can go on to other methods of acceptance and relaxation. Right now you are frozen in fear and are not going anywhere.

How are you feeling today after a night out?

Johnnie,

Agora1 wrote a very good reply to you. Not much That I could add, as you and I corresponded several months ago about you taking your medication, and you had many reasons not to. I think Agora1 is making some very good observations....you are feeling everything you write about, but it may be anxiety and or something else emotionally underneath it all. Perhaps it is time to see your doctor again and to open your mind about taking medication that may help you get a handle on your life. You deserve better but you need some help getting that better life, ok?

If you have not seen a doctor you should. If you have for same signs with no result it may be anxiety or even some of it side effects from meds. I get the hotness headaches palpitations and dizziness. I don’t eat a lot though. Side effects from meds and meds with no food. I can’t obviously give you a diagnosis though. Anxiety does all those things too. Since many illnesses have similiar symptoms you should definitely see a doctor. You may just need to adjust meds. A therapist can also help you a lot with anxiety coping skills. Exercise or even walking can take your mind off things which could be why walking makes it better. So take full advantage! Take a walk! Go outside take some deep breaths of nice fresh air and walk! Exercise is the very best medicine. Check the side effects of your meds. Sounds like that and anxiety may be to blame but of course I can’t say 100% online. Diet can help a lot too. Try to avoid caffeine for one. I hope you find some relief. You know your body better than anyone. If this has been happening for a year and has been uneventful you can probably rely on that proof to lessen your anxiety. I’m used to it. It’s miserable but I adapt. You can too! Just be safe! Check with a doctor if you haven’t and are concerned

Mine does to women already much higher risk of heart disease then men that’s not to say they don’t get it I am one year younger than my mom was when she had her first heart attack suffering from anxiety put you at a much higher risk for heart problems but it sounds like you have been checked and everything turned out OK the same goes for me I would do things to enhance your help and start living instead of staying in fear about dying exercise diet No smoking no alcohol start living heart healthy and you will have nothing to worry about

Be leery of any alcohol. That can be a stimulant and make anxiety worse. I don’t know that you are you just said you were going to bar. Go! Have fun! Relax! Music is good for me! Just know that as much as you might not realize anxiety gets worse when alcohol is added! Trust me! Have fun though! Wish I could come. I’d probably cancel though. It’s what I do. I dream of going out and dancing or having fun. I use to love it so much!

Anxiety literally has those same symptoms. So can side effects of meds but if you are concerned always see your doctor. From what you said you were having the same thing when you saw him. I have many of the same if not all of those symptoms. A therapist can help you significantly with coping skills. Exercise is one of the best and you can do that anytime and it’s free!
