    does this sound like anxiety

    I have a complicated story...lots of issues i Ocotber my ex died of cancer at age 31. I was precoccupied with that for a mth or so... when he had gone to the dr, the drs didn't find the cancer till it was too late... in november i strated getting dizzy speels that only increased in the dec and jan. In jan i went to the er after lots of blood work and a ct scan becasue of a headache and visual disturbances, i was told i had lyme disease. I started taking the meds only to return to the er later because my thoart, chest and face were numb, they gv me actican and i calmed down. After this i had a many drs saying different things, one said lyme, 2 said no...went to neuro he said i was fine after 2 mris, cardiologist said i was fine and said it was anxiety. I had two rounds of lyme meds and was feeling better, but was very lightheaded or my face was numb, i am completely focusing on it, from the minute i wake up to the minute i go to sleep i am constantly checking myself... i constantly thinking they missed something. I can't even convince myself after much trying that this is anxiety. But i have been to many drs...and they say i am fine. I am 28 yrs old and have 3 little girls. It scares me cause my face will be numb for 4 weeks at a time then disappear and come back. Does this sound like anxiety???

    Anxiety can be the underlying cause of many physical manifestations. Did the doctor that diagnosed anxiety, follow up with any medications to help you deal with it? It sounds as if you have a lot on your plate, and if you need a little medication to get you through this difficult time, then I would consider it. I would not to look to medication as a long term treatment, but just to help you get your feet back on the ground.

    Good luck, and love to those little girls of yours.
