Re: 10 yrs later and still sick

Wow I have many of these symptons but you really are having a truly rotten time. I feel bad for you. I wish I could help you but all I can do is tell you how I saved my self by not giving up and asking a good dr for help. She put me on 10mg on Lexapro and 1mg Loazapam and that's what saved me. I got off Lexapro a year ago and doing well with depression. I may always have anxiety I have suffered almost 20 years. Just got help in 2005. Don't give up you will find the right dr and medicine or non-medcine way to cope-I hope! jjules

Re: 10 yrs later and still sick

hello i register here just to answer you r help call

what you are describe is anxiety attacks and i recommand going to therapy like please go see a diffrent psychologist book a appointment asap... did something happen in your life like midlife crises, child birth, serious illness, work stress build up, or resurfacing trauma memories . anyway due the length of your problem, it might take a bit of time to diagnose your problem root. but in the mean time you need to go see a psychologist and please do alittle research first to see which one are good for you either thru the internet or have a talk with your family doctor

also i'll probalbly not coming back to the site so yeah

Re: 10 yrs later and still sick

I finally said "god i give up " , started getting better from that point.

When you get so tired of the anxeity , you do exercise to see if you are going to die , The problem will get better .

I will exercise when anxeity hits , if i die , so what , have not died of a heart attack yet .
