... for about three years now off and on, but they became more severe back in September. Are there any ladies who have been having body aches, tingling in their breasts like they can't feel anything? Also, when I try to massage the muscles in my chest I have these bad muscles spasms. Everyday I'm constantly worrying if there is something wrong with me, but every time I go see a doctor I check out just fine. Sometimes it feels like my mind is off, like i'm just spaced out. I can't concentrate like how I use to. Like its not programmed right. Does anybody have any tips on getting back focused and to stop thinking horribly?I get so nervous that my whole body tenses up from being anxious. Pain runs through my arm, tingling in my feet and fingers, and sharp neck pains and its like I can stop if from happening. Can somebody please give me some advice and tell me I'm not running myself nuts??
I am new to this site but I want you to know, as I have learned, you are not alone. I too struggle with anxiety and panic attacks and am basically home bound which is not normal for me. I have experienced some of the symptoms you describe and many others.
My suggestion is to find a good psychiatric. I have a great doc. We just can't seem to find the right medication for me because of extreme reactions in my system. The psychiatric might lead you to a therapist also.
I wish you success. No you are not nuts!
I'm not sure how all this works, but I would be happy for you to friend me and I could share more. JJ
I have suffered from attacks on and off since I was a teen. Im now almost 60 and have been on meds to control the horrible symptoms since the early 80's. i've been through the whole gammant including therapy. The only thing that has ever helped are the meds. Zoloft and Xanax helped for a long time - then I switched to Effexor which helped for another long while but the attacks started coming back in Dec and I've had a very hard time getting them back under control this time. I'm now on Lexapro and Ativan, never have caffeine, walk 2 miles every other day, and try to stay away from the depressing media and TV that make me obsess about all the bad things happening. I'm doing better but everyday is a struggle. Its a brain chemical imbalance and somewhat hereditary as my mother and daughter both suffer also. Hang in there and just know you are not alone. Unfortunately, There are thousands of us... :((
Hang in there Fseymore. You are not 'nuts'. Some how some way our body and mind are not speaking the same language. It makes us feel like we are crazy. If anyone knew how to stop this there would not be so many of us suffering. Can you see a therapist? Just to hear someone tell me I was not crazy helped. Find help and support where ever you can. Don't give up! Have faith that you will be OK. Let us know how you are doing. You can friend me if you would like.
