    Re: what are your physical symptoms, fears, and how long does your symptoms last?

    Hi still hope full
    My anxiety starts late at night, i find its memorys of teh passed, mostly of my self, and points that i can pick at and dispise, i end up self loathing, taht i have been a bad mum and my son is unhappy and i wont see him safe before i die. ( i also have an immune infection i am getting better but it brought alot of facts home to me.)

    The self loathing tops out and heart pulls terrible.
    I also got social phobia as i lost cofidence due to illness, and slef assteme.

    i went to an anxiety course and noticed after talking that many can be different, i didnt have closing walls or shopping iles, but crowds made me anxiouse.

    hope this helps.
    you could always detail what you have and tehn any that relate can say and you will not be so alone.

    hugs
    Julesxx

    Well I dont know what you have experianced and for how long but I have had anxiety disorder for years disgnosed 13 yrs ago but I imagine I had it long before then it just progressivly got worse.I have had periods in my life where I was almost anxiety free for a few years and then back to the anxiety.There are way to many physical symptoms I have had to list here honestly tons of symptoms and of course the mental symptoms.I have thought I was going insane to having different horrible health problems.During the time of diagnosis I was going through an extreme ruff time with anxiety sometimes I didnt realize hwere I was in my own home for several minutes I lived everyday and night on edge all day and night with a constant headache,lightheadedness,derealization,a nxious to the point that I thought it would be better to be dead,thought I had a brain tumor,would shake uncontrolably,had my then b/f now hubby drive me all over the place to diff doctor,specialists etc. I have even passed out several times due to anxiety and stress and many many more symptoms off and on through the years.Those symptoms I listed with the headaches etc.lasted a good year day and night.Then I went about 5 years feeling almost completely normal again only to be hit again this time with alot of new symptoms got on medication finally and got myself feeling good again lost my insurance and it has been back forth ever since.I am now thinking of medication again I have been having symptoms that make me think I have a heart problem now and all heart testing normal so I am trying to just get through it without meds but we will see.......so as you can see my biggest fear is something suddenly happening to me because of some major health issue that goes misdiagnosed because most of my anxiety symptoms are physical ones (I also have occassional panic attacks ) and like the last poster crowds make me anxious as well my breathing gets all off adrenline kicks in and I want to flee
    I am so glad to be a member of this board where I can relate and others can relate with me I consider it a gift and truely helpful

    How did you deal with it all? With the constent dizzyness, lightheadedness, I don't know how tol deal with it. I take my ativan but it doesn't take away the lightheaded. I want to go play outside with my kid, but I get so dizzy. I've been checked by the docs, i've had blood tests, Its anxiet. It is just getting so frusterating . I want to feel GOOD again.

    Re: what are your physical symptoms, fears, and how long does your symptoms last?

    I have had the physical symptoms since the end of November. Maybe a week or two which were better but lately I have been feeling really lousy again. My physical symptoms include:

    Muscle aches: in particular my arms, chest, neck and back
    chest pain
    Shaking, trembling
    tingles in the hands
    dizzy, naseous
    headaches

    I can go on and on with more.....I hate it SO much. I am still trying to get a grasp on this awful thing....just taking one day at a time.

    Hang in there!

    i feel out of it and lightheaded and tired all day and night everyday. been told anxiety or inner ear infection. this was 6 months ago. was told if it was inner ear related it should be gone so im thinking more anxiety since i have a history of it. i started paxil cr and waiting for it to kick in.

    its nice to know i have no real illness but the physical symptoms of anxiety disorders are so real! especillay the constant ones.
