Is it anxiety???
Okay, here is my story....
I'm a 24 year old female, 5'3 about 145lbs. I guess you can say I'm fairly healthy, about three years ago I was put on Lamsil for a few months. I had such bad side effects that I ended up not finishing the dosage, during that time I started having all these kind of symptoms. I didn't eat for like 2 weeks and lost 20 lbs, I was afraid of sleeping, I would cry for no reason whatsoever and I had this huge fear that I was dying.
I went to a doctor who said the symptoms where not related to the pills and were probably caused from stress or anxiety. They eventually went away but about 6 months later I started up with other symptoms...my left arm would go numb, not completely numb but it just felt numb...i would get a numb like feeling in my face too, I kept thinking I had cancer or was going to die. I went to another doctor, explained the symptoms...he ran a blood tests and everything came back fine. He even ran a CT scan of my head to make sure and it all came back normal...he said it was stress/anxiety. That was about 3 years ago, and I was fine up until a few days ago.
Now, I've been on vacation for the last few months...having no school and no job it leaves me alot of time to think. My uncle passed away in December, a high school teacher of mine passed away about a month ago...I feel like I might not have really grieved but all the symptoms have returned. I feel like the left side of my face goes numb but I can still feel everything, that slight numbness in my arm...the constant fear that I might have cancer or am going to die young. I get slight discomfort in my left eye, the more I think about it the more it bothers me though. I know I have to think about other things but I cant help it...I also have this constant feeling that I am going to die young, like I can't picture myself 20 or 30 years older. I am so afraid that it is going to come true, I just don't know what to do.
