I have not posted here before. I have suffered with anxiety, mostly related to health for some years now but lately it has reached a state I have never felt. I eventually went to the go two months ago and the tears flooded as I explained how bad I felt. At that point I was suffering from nausea and dizziness. GP checked some things and was very sympathetic. He prescribed me propranolol and also ran some blood tests which showed my iron levels were low so am also on iron tablets now. Can't say these or the beta blockers have made me feel any better and in fact I think it's got worse. I now just feel so anxious and jittery all the time and have become completely obsessed with my heart noticing every beat. It seems pretty fast at time which scares me. Just wondered if anyone else had this? I really need to get over the anxiety as I have two children aged 1 and 3 and feel like I am missing out on them with all thus worry. How can I get better? Should I go back to the gp?
