    my story crippling devastating anxiety disorder

    i started haveing panic attacks when i was 19 yrs old, about a month after my son was born. i remember that night falling asleep 2nd time and suddenly waking up and thinking i had just died in my sleep that was the start of them. i couldnt stop them i had an attack probably every 20mins. i saw my dr he put me on valium they worked great but so addictive i decided to not stay on them for long and went on propranolol. after 2 years they disapeared on their own. although it kept reocurring on and off for years till 2005. i started suffering again most terribly and have done damage to my stomach because of it. problems are lpr and trouble with excess bile. vommiting, severe trembles numbness in hands pnd. neck spasms which are a nuisance and spasms all over really but worse in neck, dysphagia and anorexia. yes anorexia caused by anxiety. my dr said that people underestimate anxiety they just think palpatations and panic attacks but this as ruined my life, relationships, left me housebound and severely sick and i wont underestimate it again neither

    OMG...I cannot believe you just described so many of my ailments. I have never attributed them to my anxiety though. It makes alot of sense though. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am going to bring it to my dr's attention.

    Wow!!! I can totally relate. I like to tell myself 'It's Mind over Matter, Cause the Matter don't Mind." Hope things get better for you.
