Scared its not anxiety!

Hi, can anyone tell me if they have anxiety symptoms that last most of the day, but symptoms get worse at random? if so what are your symptoms? Can anxiety cause things like slight weakness in what appears to be on one side, various aches and pains all over? I have many of the other more obvious symptoms but am convinced there is something more wrong, Doctors have done an MRI and said it was clear except for a small cyst on my sinus, but of course now im thinking all these problems are from cysts growing everywhere inside my body... Its just constant the worry its something more serious, ive started on 75mg of effexor have been on it for 5 days and am praying it starts to work soon and prove this is all anxiety related. Has medication made you stop worrying incessantly about your health?

I dont think any of it will be instantly. Effexor has been around for a while now. So give it a little time. I take Xanax and it releives the attack at the moment, but it is not the fix. I probably should be medicated for more but just work real hard with what I have. Keep open communication with your doctor, likely you will get some nice results.

It's probably just anxiety. The SSRIs won't make you stop worrying but it will calm you down to the point that the worries don't bother you as much. Eventually, you may even forget about them.
