This is my first post in this group so here we go. I am looking for more information about anxiety. A few years ago, 7 I believe, I was told I was suffering form anxiety and put on Venlafaxine. I couldnt get out of my front door and was having panic attacks if anyone tried to get me out. I had CBT and that with the meds seemed to really help. Last year I started having fits. Noone knew why so I was investigated for epilepsy. All test turned out clear and I am now aware that at times of stress or anxiety I will fit. I have never in my life heard of this and wondered if anyone else has? I am being referred to a psychiatrist as the consultant says that my anxiety is excessive. No idea what that will entail. I suppose I know I am a worry wart but never thought it would end up controlling my life like it is.
