Hello everyone! I'm grateful to have discovered this forum finally and with so many people who are struggling like I am. I have so much life ahead of me- I'm a long way away from my twenties yet but I'm struggling with major health anxiety. Lately, following an infected ear lobe, I've been stressed about septicemia. The infection is all treated now but I'm still anxious. I have also started on an SRI following a couple of major negative events. So serotonin syndrome has been freaking me out as well. I've been feeling the side effects of the infection and from the SRI. I've been feeling awful with physical symptoms like difficulty swallowing, difficulty sleeping, heart palpitations, panic attacks, negative thoughts, loss in appetite, mental fatigue, sore stomach, and tightness around the chest especially. I've been down in the blues worrying. I have a good psychologist, psychiatrist, and GP but whatever reassurance or whatever they try isn't working. I've been like this for months. I can't stop googling and getting myself worked up over nothing. I'm mainly posting to find support from other younger people who are up against the same sort of anxiety. Talk soon hopefully- Charlotte.
