Hi all .
I have already found wisdom in many of your posts so thank you.
I have had anxiety in the past .
It has always subsided within a few weeks .
This time is so very different .
It just will not go away .
I tried one antidepressant but had a reaction to it .
I have many physical symptoms such as racing heartbeat ,high blood pressure ,numbness in hands a lot of the time and constantly feeling like heat prickles are on my shoulders and in chest .My lower arms feel these sensations too .My head has been the worst though .A constant headache for 6 months is slowly easing with meds.My bad cholesterol is up too ,so this anxiety is playing havoc with my body and mind .
I do not sleep much either .
New GP has been helpful with an anti depressant that in tne small dose I take ,acts as headache tablet and is supposed to help sleep .
Sounds like a whinge when I read this back ,but it isn't.
Too me it is hard going and I know there is support and real understanding here .
