Not having a good day today

Awake early with deep churning in upper stomach felt juddery in my arms,heart started to race and felt sweaty.My lower legs feel awul with muscle cramps and twitching.Have managed to get out with my husband to do the shopping but was quite relieved to come back as feel more afraid when out i suppose it's the fear something might happen to you.Appetite not very good but going to try and be positive and have some food even if only manage a small amount .

  • Hi Devon

    Maybe it s just a bad day.it happens to me as well sometimes.hugs

  • Hi, have you tried taking 5-HTP its from Holland and Barrett, it works for me. Hope you feel better soon. Jeni

  • hi I have heard 5-HTP mentioned a few times on here has it helped with your anxiety and do you take any other meds x

  • Hmm, must be something in the air, I am in a fouler today, not just anxiety but really negative thoughts as well. Rar rar rar hate hate hate.

  • I feel the same today,my meds have just been upped. Valium as a last resort today. :(

  • Have any of you heard or tried EFT.....plenty of free videos on youtube to tap along with, i know it looks a bit strange but it works. I had chronic anxiety for year then I found EFT, I'm not a 100% yet but I'm getting there. Start off with an open mind and just try it, just start by using it to try to relax. Good luck and let me know how it goes. If you have any questions or can't find any good vids, just ask. Good Luck x

  • Well done for heading out anyway. :-)

    Much easier said than done sometimes I suppose.

    There are some resources on the site here that I have used occasionally that hopefully can help too, especially the breathing.
