Hello my name is Christina, Im 29 and have BAD anxiety that was daignosed in 2000 with GAD but Ive had it my whole life I believe
. I can tell you that I suffer from Hypocondria and constantly feel like Im going to die
. Every pain is a serious illness and Im scared to take pills, SO my anxiety isnt getting any better
. I have 4 children so I NEED to get rid of the anxiety
but I have a mental block that if I take meds I will feel worse
. Ive been on Xanax, Paxil, and Celexa. I took the Xanax and Paxil together for a week and felt SO sick and believe it was from the Paxil so I was taken off both and put on Celexa which helped a bit. I took it for 6 months then stopped because I developed blurred vision. So I havent taken anything for 5 years! I can tell you after I give birth it gets 10 times worse for some reason
. I get blood work alot which shows nothing, Im fine. I feel horrible though. I have GERD and IBS
. I just had my 4th baby 6 weeks ago and Ive been a basketcase since! Ive had several panic attacks out of the blue and constant anxiety symptoms.
Can anyone relate?
Here are my symptoms I have on a daily basis:
Feel bug eyed
Lump in throat
Gerd symptoms 24/7, constant burping, chest discomfort, sore throat, and ear pain
ALSO Ive been getting freaked out over a new symptom. It feels like head rushes, is this anxiety?
