Diagnosing / Controlling Anxiety
I think my case is a bit weird. I always felt tightness around my neck, it began when I didn't have any anxiety at all.
Since having that weird condition, I began to think too much about it - cancer, HIV, mad cow disease etc. Then I extended my worrying to my family members, fearing they will die or have an accident. Other than that I also have other stress, mostly work related but also family related.
I knew some of my symptoms are related to anxiety, because they are more severe when I am extreme worrying. Those includes ear ringing, hand/fee tingling and night sweating. However, I found it difficult to distinguish the symptoms caused by anxiety and symptoms caused by other problems. I don't know when I should seek medical advice
I also want to know is there anyway to control anxiety without using any drug or consoling. I am a firm believer that taking drug for an extended amount of time will only cause drug reliance and tolerance and other side effects. I think anxiety is probably best to be controlled from the inner self.... but how?
