Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

Could you be more specific with your symptoms? I have daily anxiety. My symptoms are mostly heart palpitations, but I do have days with general dizziness and cluster-type headaches. Have you seen a doctor yet? I'm on Atenolol for the pals and I take .25 Xanax as needed or a night to help me get to sleep. Hang in there!

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

I have had anxiety for awhile. I was on meds and did so well I decided it was time to go off. Big mistake. I get dizziness, heart palps, headaches, feeling out of myself, weird feelings on my skin, my left hand feels weird like heavy.All tests done years ago and all negative. I hope I don't have to go through all that again. I was on Lexapro and Xanax as needed. Do you feel bad all day long or just when having an attack. I do have attacks of fear, dread and fear of dying and I worry about my health alot.

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

For me i have aches and pains all day that makes my anxiety sky rocket. This happens everyday, and has for almost 2 years now. I have left arm discomfort, jaw pain, teeth pain, dizziness, SOB, palps, chest pains, stomache issues.My health is what causes ALL my anxiety issues. I go into panic attacks if the symptoms come on and last for a long time, then i start to freak out and it gets worse. I take ativan as needed.

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

wow you sound like me. I threw myself into a terrible attack yesterday just from hearing people talk about a friend who has a brain tumor. I was so freaked out. Have you had all test done? My biggest fear is my health. Do you take your pulse,check your pupils,and perform neuro tests on yourself? I do this all day long......

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

For me, I feel a constant anxious feeling, like something bad could happen at any moment. Sometimes the feeling is worse than other times. I get heart palpitations, dizziness, just not being able to relax. I also feel like I can't breathe sometimes, like I can't take that deep breath you take every minute or so. Some days are worse than others. But this is how it's been for me for as long as I can remember, this is 'normal' for me. I don't know what it feels like to not worry.

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

I have had several EKG's, several Echo's, rounds of blood work, 1 echo/stress test and 2 nuclear stress test done all within the last 2 years. They all show my heart is fine, but my brain doesnt agree with them. I dont check my pulse as much as i use to but i do have a habit of doing it. My biggest health anxiety is my heart. I dont really worry about anything else other than a stroke. Every ache or pain i get i just know its something that is going to kill me at any given minute. Its gotten to the point that i dont really do much outside of my home besides work and school. I am afraid i am going to start feeling bad out somewhere and pass out or freak out. I have no social life cause i never know from one minute to the next how im going to feel. My father suffered many heart issues through out my life and im sure this is where my anxiety stems from. I have tried anxiety classes but they didnt help much. I was told i could have a cardic cath done to let my mind be at ease about my heart but im to scared to do that invasive of a test without some test showing that its necessary. I dont want to have it done and something go wrong when i didnt even need the darn thing to begin with, so i suffer with worry everyday Its a miserable way to live your life. We get one life and im ruining mine by being a hypochondric!!!!

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

Hello My everyday symptoms are tingling in hands, feet, and scalp. I get weird feelings through out my skin all day off and on. Sometimes it feels like water is dripping on me. Other times it feels like somebody is pulling my hair. It drives me crazy because I don't understand it. I can't find anyone else with these symptoms. I want my dr. to do a MRI, but he says it is just anxiety. Anyone else with these symptoms? erika

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

erika- I get the tingles on the side of my head and that freaks me out the worst. I'm like you and feel terrible most days. I look at other people living life and I get so upset that I have to fake a smile everyday. Inside I feel terrible and so alone. It is great totalk to others about the same things.

Re: Daily anxiety. What are your everyday symptoms?

Wow! All of your replies have my name all over it. I worry about EVERY ache and pain. My palpitations make me automatically go into heart attack mode. When I have headaches I fear a brain tumor or stroke. Numbness, left arm pain, feeling drunk all the time, feeling tired (but can't sleep)... I have it all. My health causes my anxiety. It's such a struggle to pinpoint the real cause- something physical or is it all anxiety? Which came first- the chicken or the egg?

What helps me the most is talking to my doctor(s)- asking questions about my tests and wanting thorough explanations on all results- even when they're normal. I have follow-ups every 6 months or so - blood work and all. It helps to hear it from a doctor and remind myself during attacks that I am ok... it will pass...and it does. My GP is great, but I also make sure my OBGYN is up to date on my anxiety as well. He is able to add more imput on possible causes during my monthly cycle and help with the PMDD that comes along with it. My cardiologist also is aware of all my tests from my GP. She is always willing to answer my questions and be as thorough with me as she can. I'm not saying to run to every doctor you can find, but it has helped me tremendously knowing that every 6 months I can be monitored and evaluated on progress. Medication helps, but overall, it is the way your body thinks. I listen to the specialists and do what they ask me to do (seek therapy, exercise, eat right, etc.) Anxiety is a real disorder of the brain and its interpretations of stress (good or bad). The real battle is training your brain to interpret those feelings and how to cope with them. Best of luck. I am so happy to hear I'm not alone... take care!
