Anyone with anxiety and other health issues?

I finally have an appointment for Thursday to see the dr, after giving up on drs for the past few years as I never found any sort of relief I know I need help. All these symptoms make me think I have something more than just anxiety but yet again that’s how anxiety works and am trying not to worry too much, but my heart palpitations and this lightheaded worry me since I can’t function anymore, I was anemic a while back and am thinking what if that has to do with my anxiety. Just trying to vent alittle since I’m nervous going in especially with the corona virus but I was assured they are taking precautions with that: thanks for just reading and letting me vent a bit.

Yes! I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, a painful bladder disorder in 2008. A literal nightmare that landed me on disability. I couldn't continue working as a Therapist anymore because it decreased my functional ability to stand, sit walk too long plus the pain factor was off the charts. I am my states support leader for anyone in my state or others that need help with support or resources. It doesn't help to lose your daily life comraderie while suffering anxiety and depression.

Best wishes girl! ⚓🤗X

Thank you. 🌻 Some days are good it depends on sticking to the IC diet and not overdoing it physically. I haven't had a treatment since end of February and I usually have 2/ month at the hospital. I wouldn't go to the hospital for fear of catching the virus so I missed about 6 and plan to go next week so I don't get a flare. 🌻

I actually have an appointment tomorrow to check my vitals and get blood work done because i just haven’t felt myself, i didn’t want to go because of the virus but I just want to be reassured I don’t have anything else. I’m just a worrier and since I haven’t been to drs for over 2 years I’m nervous.

If you're nervous you may have the virus go get tested. I did.

Oh no I don’t think I have he virus. I just think my anxiety has gotten out of control as I stated I haven’t been to the dr in over 2 years because I felt they weren’t helping me with my anxiety. But I’ve just been feeling so miserable lately I just know I need professional help. Or I’m just worried I may have something deeper than anxiety.

I have ADHD, GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), and MDD (Major Depressive Disorder). A lot of the symptoms overlap such as fatigue is a common issue in all three conditions. It can be hard to get the right diagnosis but if you find a doctor who is invested in you and what you need eventually you will get to the bottom of what is wrong.

Thank you I have an appointment tomorrow so I’m hoping I have luck.

The one dr I had that I loved ended up moving so I couldn’t see her anymore.

That sucks. I had a lot of issues finding a good doctor. I took my three try's to finally find someone who cared. I have been seeing my current doc for like 5 years.

Agreed ones you find a good dr that takes their time and cares everything is so much better. I’ve had so many drs disregard me or make it seem I was crazy which is what made me give up on drs.

I had a therapist when I was in high school. I was very depressed and suicidal at times. After a couple of weeks I started to do better because of talk therapy. They said to me "I do know why you are here you are fine". That made me really distrust doctors.

One time a dr told me why are you here so much, like if I was looking for drugs or something I didn’t take any medication!!! I’m always iffy about taking any medication I want to go plant based and organic. I don’t even take Advil or Tylenol. Some drs are just not meant to be drs.

I have it so bad I barely can go to sleep at night . 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

Just wanted to update after getting back blood work I am extremely anemic they told me I had extremely low red blood cells and am borderline thalassemia. I need to go back in August for more blood test after being put on iron pills 3 times a day if levels are still low will be sent to hematologist.

I have anxiety and I am ADD too... sometimes severe sometimes not so depends on
