Elevated Anxiety When sick??

I have been pretty good lately with Celexa, started 3 weeks ago, and when needed Klonopin. Last night I developed body aches, especially my legs,and an intestinal bug. I feel that my axiety has been pretty bad the past 24 hours. Through my shoulders and head I have this burning sensation. I think this is anxiety. Just wondering if anyone else feels worse when they are sick.

Re: Elevated Anxiety When sick??

Sorry I didn't get to reply sooner, but yes. I always feel much more anxiety when I am really physically sick. The symptoms can sometimes cause you to worry and just feeling bad makes you obsess a bit about how well you are and what not. I think anyone would agree that real illness can sometimes be difficult to distinguish from anxiety dissorder, so it is only natural to feel a little more anxious. Just take solice in the fact that the physical illness WILL go away and you will feel better again.

Re: Elevated Anxiety When sick??

When your body feels ill it sends out a buch of things and concentrates in the sick area which throws off the rest of your body which can then trigger a attack.
