I have just discovered this site and it is so comforting to know that other people feel the same way. I have suffered anxiety on and off for approx 20years so you would think I could control it by now! Sadly that is not the case as I am going through a bad patch at the moment.I feel that there is constant tension all through my body and even though I know exercise is good I feel so tense that I almost feel that I cannot move. I have a very supportive husband but he says he is at a loss to be know what to do to help me . I get so distressed at times I am so afraid of bringing him down with me as he suffers with a heart condition. I look forward to talking with other people who feel the same because as several of you have said you feel so alone and as if you are the only person to feel like this.
