Unhappy Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hey, I'm new and didnt know where to start, but I figured since these so called docs keep saying I have "anxiety" I figured I'll talk to people who really understand me.

First off, this all started when I hurt my neck,
Long story short, was working out my traps and popped my neck a little to far,
Well it popped alright and I felt something crack and lodge in my throat.
Went to er, everything fine they say,.
Few days later it all started.
I started feeling burning and liquid in my head went to er like 4 times for that and all kinds of, what they say to be compressed nerve issues, ct's with and without contrast,. Went on for about a month, finally went away for the most part, still get numbness and sharp pains and tingling, weird headaches, other weird pains all over head randomly??.
Did nerve tests went to pt, back to doc several meds non worked, they keep saying anxiety, because I was scared to death that I was gonna die cause I tore something in my neck and that I was gonna bleed in my head??that went on for about a month as well, couldn't sleep, only like 1 hr a day!! Everytime I tried to fall asleep it was like my heart would stop and I couldn't breath, then I would jump up in a full blown panic attack that would turn into " oh my gosh I'm having a heart attack!!". Ugh..
After that went away it was I can't breath or my heart or gonna have a stroke back to my heart then aneurism then somethin in my neck,.!! Ahh
That I chalked up that all that had to be 1 paranoia 2 bad anxiety and 3 hypocondria. Also lost 40lbs in the first 2 wks!! Man.. Now from that my body feels so different because I couldn't eat and wasn't sleeping now I'm mal nutritioned and have deficiency's, and now I get pains everywhere like, burning, strings of pain, numbness (any and everywhere) visual disturbances, floaters and wavy crap, muscle pains and soreness, eye always twitches and vision seems unable to stay focused, now for the mental part of it...
I always feel light headed, like I'm gonna pass out, foggy, irritated, on edge, feel like I'm not me or like in a dreamy state, dazed, always trying to remember how and when to breath, I always feel my heartbeat (any and everywhere).
Now I'm very sensetive to what I eat am always feeling anxious dont feel like I can work anymore,.. Also my neck always clicks when I move and I can feel and hear everything my body is doing all the time!! So annoying.
I hate going thru this and always am praying that one day I will wake up an this be gone or that I won't wake up at all I hate this so much!! I'm so fed up with one doc saying its bad anxiety another fibromyalgia,?? They also said that all this would go away after 3wks, it's been 6mths!! I don't have a life anymore can't play with kids feel mentally unstable and I feel depressed.
Also been going to a therapist for anxiety and mental problems?? Cause of this and dont know where to turn anymore or who to see.
All I know is that before i hurt myself I was perfectly normal after a mess and srry excuse for a life. I know all these feelings are real and they won't go away hard to say this is all anxiety? How the heck??
Please for the love of god somebody out there hear me !! Someone has to know how to stop this or fix it, I can't be the only one in this worlds existence to have this problem?? Please anybody out there have any information for me or tell me there's hope before its to late... Thx to anybody who reads this. I know it's long but I've read these types of thing before and always helps to feel a little better..

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hi, I'm so sorry your going through such a horrible time. I do believe you have terrible anxiety alright but all this started when you hurt your neck, and I believe you need to pursue finding out the damage to your neck and work on the drs. fixing that. Your anxiety is the fear your feeling, fear of what can be happening to you because of your neck. I live with anxiety and it makes no sense I know. It's a horrible horrible horrible feeling and so so scary. There has to be some sort of procedure that can be done to your neck I would think. Keep God in your life and pray a lot and I will pray for you too and hopefully things will look up for you soon. I wished I could do something for you. Just remember sometimes we go thru some horrible times but later the good times will come back. Don't ever try to hurt yourself because you think you can't keep on living like this. I've had Lupus/fibromyalgia for 27 yrs and the list of things wrong me just keeps growing longer and more miserable, but I pray, and pray and pray, and I still want to Live for as long as God sees possible. NEVER GIVE UP!!! ... Donna

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hi junebugzz

Thx so much for replying at short notice I appreciate it more than u know..

I have been prayin alot every night as a drift away to sleep..
Yes this is very hard to deal with, I've been throwing everything at this and I'm pushing so hard to get to the bottom of this. There has to be an answer to all this yes I agree that something is up with my neck that's what started it all it should be a nobrainer?? I am going to see a rheumatologist next week cause my neurologist says that he will be able to do more testing to complete the narrowing this down and more than likely get a definitely " I think this is fibro" as much as they can narrow it down..

So sorry to hear what ur going thru as well, yes god is the only thing that sustains us. Thx again stay I'm touch

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hi there, I think that after you hurt yourself and all these issues was caused from that it put you in high anxiety simply because you know it hurt or damaged something and because they cannot find it you have developed panic and anxiety! Also what is making you desperate is because you know theres something wrong all stemming from the accident with your neck. You sound like my daughter who also hurt her neck and back and it caused her weird symptoms as well even to the point her one hand would shake like crazy and numbness and the list goes on. You need to go see a Chiropractor they can fix the accident with your neck. More than likely it popped things out of alignment and pressing on some nerves i would say you will get great results call and get an appointment with the best chiropractor that you can they did a world of good with my daughter she is fine now. They even had to pop her neck back in place! Keep me updated after you see your Chiropractor. You are not a hypercoghdrac nor have panic and anxiety other than the fact brought on from a REAL issue of hurting your neck. It is very scary when YOU know things are happening to your body and when doctors can't find it they pin the ole panic/anxiety deal. SEE a Chiropractor asap! I have 100% feeling they will fix you right up!

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hi crosdo8,

I thank you for ur input, and taking the time to read what I'm going thru. I have had several people tell about problems like this being fixed by a chiropractor., the only reason why I haven't been is because I am VERY afraid that they could make it worse, since its a very delicate and serious spot to play around with. Also I have had several people I know that have had horrible experiences with Chiropracters. And I have read that there are quite a few cases of some even causing stroke..? Kinda terrified to go, and I don't think that's just the anxiety talking. Also I went to one when this first happened and I think it caused all these problems, they were not this bad at first or this dramatic.
And my dr told me that be side it was to soon after the accident that he cracked my neck that it sent my body into severe panic because somehow he bothered or " shocked my nervous system"? Those were his words??

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hey hatethislife,

I am having neck issues as well. One day I woke up with debilitating pain in my neck and shoulder. Long story short I went to the ER and they did A MRI and I hernated a disc at the base of my neck. Basically a disc is a cushion in between your vertebra. When its herneaited its like a little bubble on the side pushes out.

I would go to your doc for a federal to a neurosurgeon or ortho doc who specializes in neck and backs. I would also ask for an MRI so they can see for sure nothing's wrong. If your insurance doesn't require a referral just look online and make an appointment. Don't ever let a doctor tell you it's nothing if your body is telling you something is wrong. Our body's are set to make us feel pain when something's wrong. Just because they don't know what it is doesn't mean there's nothing wrong. I have been in your shoes. For ten years I had a dr tell me nothing was wrong with my hips and ankles that losing weight wouldn't fix. Well finally I got mad and told him something's got to give. So he sent me to a sports med dr for my hips and a podiatrist for my ankle. Well my hips were twisted 3 inches off and I am now waiting to fix my neck cause since he waited so long I need a total ankle replacement at 31. So take it from me don't give up but don't stress either. Good luck !!

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Hi, thx for ur input

I have had several ct's and mri's
They did find a slight herniation between my c-5 c-6
And that is wasn't bad enough to cause any harm?? I do not think that this is all anxiety. I hate taking xanax cause all it does is make me feel faded/doped up, and kinda masks how I feel, cause I still feel like crap; just high and like crap??! There really starting to p*** me off...bad. I've been to specialists and dr's and they seem to think its in my head? Just wish I could find someone who knows what there talking about and has some knowledge of what I'm goin thru.

Re: Nerve issues or bad anxiety or fibro?? Pls help!

Well some herniations are actually worse then the MRI shows. Two some of you symptoms sound like mine and I have herniated c6-c6 and its large. I have pain sharp pain that you would do anything to get it to stop. Also heat flashes on your skin on my arms legs back as well. Also neck thriving pain and head aches. Everyone's body is different and how there body reacts to the issues. I think the pain has flared your anxiety about it. Cause you know something's wrong and are worrying about it. I'm just saying dont take no for an answer. Of you must find a new doc for this!! Keep your head up girl!! If you keep looking you will find a doctor that listens to you and doesn't take the easy way out and blame it on your other conditions. Just don't give up. Keep your head up and take it day by day !!
