Also feel the same, have always really struggled with the physical symptoms the most. Please take care of yourself, make time to do things you enjoy and talk about how you’re feeling. How you’re feeling is only temporary x

I hate the physical symptoms too, some are really weird

They are strange, I feel as though recently I’ve started having symptoms that I’ve never had before. Every time I begin to feel comfortable about controlling one symptom another one starts. It feels like a never ending battle at the moment. The only comfort I get is from knowing that my anxiety fluctuates. At the moment it is quite bad, but I’m hoping to see improvements again soon. Take care :)

I'm glad you took the time to unload your concerns. I think you did the right thing by taking that first step to becoming whole again. Talking about our situation does wonders and helps release some of those pent up feelings that want to control us.

Have you been to a functional doctor? This kind of doctor takes a close look at all the systems of your body to see where the problem is stemming from. There could be numerous reasons, and you really can't know until you get blood work done, along with a saliva test, stool test, and urine test. Sometimes there is a huge overlap pf problems that result in anxiety, so treating each one individually will help get you on the right track.

A functional doctor usually has a neurologist on staff as well who can do some simple tests to determine what is going on with your brain activity. I strongly encourage you to consider calling one of these doctors and have a consultation with them. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at all the help that is out there for you. I wish you the very best, and please feel free to write back if you'd like.

The just did urine in blood test and X-ray of my chest and said I’m healthy

That is such good news! I am so happy for you! The next test that will reveal what your hormones are doing (which contribute greatly to what you are experiencing) is the saliva test. The results will tell a functional doctor exactly what your body is doing internally that you have no control over. I encourage you to take this a step further and see what they say!

Hey! Chin up..there is light at the end of the tunnel. My anxiety and panic attacks have hindered a lot of things I love to do. It’s even hard to be in a crowded area sometimes for me and I was never like this. The palpitations dizziness chest tightness weakness etc is all temporary . It is possible to bounce back and love life again. I still suffer but not as often and I know it can be depressing but there is so much in life to live for you just have to realize it. Easier said then done but try and be strong you have an online community willing to talk and help you get past everything!

Hello everyday it’s a battle and the physical symptoms are the worst even when I’m not over thinking or anxious here comes the physical symptoms every when I ignore it it buzzes me until I acknowledge it 💔 like now I think I’m going deaf and blind

I go by the saying what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Yes you are battling but you are surviving. Don’t let the thoughts overcome you . There is so much in life to enjoy! I have been tired and wanted to give up these symptoms can be debilitating but if your doctors tell you your fine then it’s about you overcoming your own thoughts and worries and I’m telling you that you can do it! When I get the symptoms I know how easy it is to fall into a depressive slump. This is all temporary I promise

XxWil_91, are you taking any education that helps with the dizziness that don’t cause you to be dizzy? I wake up dizzy most days and doctors are saying anxiety. Every illness they claim anxiety. My anxiety is driving anxiety, which I’ve had for over 20 years. I had a panic attack on the highway and I just don’t drive highways. So, if I’m not driving, why is it that everything is caused by anxiety.

I do not take any medication and once my body fully relaxes and I’m in my comfort zone (at home) the dizziness goes away. At first I thought I had some sort of blood pressure problem where it suddenly drops and that’s what was causing it but I’ve taken my own BP while dizzy and it was fine..I think my mind has accepted that sometimes the dizziness will come but not to worry and I think once you accept that my dizzy spells became less and less..I once thought my anxiety was caused by being on an airplane..somehow that manifested into health anxiety and other things ..anxiety can manifest. My therapist actually made me realize that I had anxious thoughts even as a kid! We don’t realize sometimes..but I think my go to coping mechanism is acceptance and knowing this is only temporary

I have just accepted dizziness too. I can function, so that’s all that matters. The only drawback is that I don’t drive as much.

I think over time once your acceptance has fully settled in and your body isn’t so tense from stress and anxiety you can get back to driving ..it took me awhile to get back to sports but I did it..try desensitizing yourself maybe drive for a mile or 2 and then back home..go on the highway for one exit and then get off..those things helped me

I drive, but when I’m dizzy, I don’t. Need to go further and be comfortable. Thank you for the encouragement.

See my legs and stuff are so weak I feel like I have a disease or something

Reply

I’ve had weak legs and weak arms, but that’s just the feeling it can give you because if I lifted something I can do it and I can walk, I think I heard a while ago it’s like the anxiety playing tricks on you or something.
