New to anxiety!

My anxiety story only started a week ago when I woke up in the middle of the night, cold and shaking from head to foot, this lasted for approx 1 hour and was accompanied my nausea and a hot, flushed face.
Since then I have have experienced numbness in my face and left arm and leg and also the need to leave a shopping centre when I could feel anxiety coming on.
I have convinced myself that I have MS as my mum and brother both suffer from the disease but my GP thinks it is anxiety. I am not an anxious person but have had stress at work recently and also my husband was made redundant 3 weeks ago. I realise that I could have been like a volcano, building up on the inside but not showing it on the outside!
My blood pressure is sky high (170/98) so my GP is sorting that out for me, they have also x-rayed my neck and spine incase of a pinched nerve.
Reading stories on here has really helped me as some of the symptoms are identical to mine and I just hope that I do not have MS. An MRI scan will be done eventually but they want to rule everything else out first.
In the meantime, the more I worry about having MS, the more anxious I become and then the numbness starts!!

Re: New to anxiety!

I can totaly relate. I had an attack a month ago and thats all I could think about. Now Im on tons of meds for it. I dont think I have accepted it. I keep thinking there must be something more dangerous happening to me.

Re: New to anxiety!

Hope you feel better, and it doesn't stay long term like me and others. Get a good psych if you need to. No stigma for me, I tell my friends and family and they all support me.
