Unhappy Does this sound like anxiety?

Hi people

First a few details about the past week of my life...

Brain/mind feels spacey, dazed, soupy, foggy, syrupy, zomby-ish, lots of anxiety, nervousness, fatigue, insomnia/early wakening, feels like I'm breathing underwater, lower-lip/jaw tremors/quivering/spasming off and on for several days.

I have a history of anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, depression (but I don't currently feel depressed), Tourettes (with head/neck jerking) and lots of allergies. I'm also a reformed alcoholic. I am 45/male non-drinker/non-smoker but did used to drink/smoke.

I was also in a car accident which damaged my cervical vertebrae/spine and the Tourette's head/neck jerks don't exactly help matters!.

I have been taking Ativan for many years for the anxiety/panic.

A week ago I took a Lorcet and that day had several head/neck jerking episodes that were so severe that I could actually feel an electric shock go down my spine each time it happened. That day, I also began to have tremors/spasms/twitches in my lower lip and jaw, my head didn't feel right and I was short of breath and I also had a really bad bout of insomnia for 4-5 days thereafter.

Does any of this sound familiar?. Can anyone else here relate to the symptoms/experience I have just talked about?.

Thanks very much!, Steve

Please help
Every new day is the very first day of the rest of your life. Take nothing for granted.

Re: Does this sound like anxiety?

To be honest, there is so much going on that its hard to separate the tourettes and possible medication side effects from the anxiety. However, the fact that you are worrying about it and that you also suffer from depression would suggest that it could certainly be anxiety related. As for the trembling lip, could be tourettes related, however, if you believe that you are experiencing anxiety on a daily basis, you should see your doctor and ask about solutions. Just don't panic about it, your still here and you've gone through a lot, best of luck, keep well!
