In September 2012 I experienced a "funny turn" which lead me to experience all the symptoms below. I have never suffered any anxiety symptoms before which Is why this was a complete shock to me as It was such a change in my personality and my everyday living.
After visiting my gp several times for frequent check up for some reason I can not seem to come to terms with the diagnosis of anxiety. Everyday I think I have a brain tumour and check constantly for swelling on my head, nose bleed, Ears bleeding and I also get sharp pains through my head.
I have experienced these physical effects below
Numbness in right side of head
Sharp pain in head
Twitches in legs
Pain in chest
Sharp pain in eye
Tingling in nose
Numbness in little finger
Sharp pain through wedding finger
Short of breath
Taste of blood in my mouth
Tingle in head & face
De ja vu
Lack of concentration
My gp gave me a course of propanalol to take although it ended a while ago and symptoms haven't changed in fact they are getting worse! How can this be controlled?!
It feels like everyday I am trying to convince myself I'm not going to die? I have just turnt 18 I shouldn't be living in this fear everyday, when am I going to go back to normal?
My gp says its going to take time but it has been 6 months how longer is this going to go on for? I have heard it never goes so I need to know how to cope with this in everyday life because at the moment I'm finding it really hard, I feel down and restricted from my normal way of life because my symptoms are always in the way!!
I want to be my happy self again.
