hypochondria

  • Have you felt this way?

    Hi guys, today i don´t know what im feeling, i started taking Lexapro and Lexotan since saturday (and got a weird "wake up" feeling head ache that scared me so much yesterday), but before that, i´ve experienced the worst 3 weeks in my life, i had so much stress because i thought ( and still think ) i had a terrible disease in my stomach/lungs/heart/brain (very hypochondriatic as you can see) and that provoked me many panic attacks, chest pains, palpitation, weird head aches, despersonalization and derealization.

    All this happened in march, i had so much stress that my blood pressure went high and made everything WORST. I´ve experienced anxiety all my life but nothing compared to what i´ve through this month, in fact, i thought it was the end for me.

    On saturday, i visited a pshychiatrist and started taking the meds i mentioned, and those have "calmed" in a certain way my anxiety, however i don´t know if i ever gonna be myself. Times passes so fast that i don´t even feel tired because im constantly thinking that im sick or that i have no future.

    Is it always gonna be like this ? Am i never gonna be the same ?

    I want to get a job, go out with my girlfriend the way i used to, buy stupid things that i don´t really need but i enjoy, but these days..i´ve been feeling hopeless and down...
  • Phobias with GAD is driving me insane

    I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder a little over two years ago. My neurologist, who I see for my temporal lobe epilepsy, prescribed Clonazepam to combat the anxiety attacks that I have. However, the level of severity changes with both the seasons and situations that I am in. Since it is sliding into Autumn and Winter, all I think is that everyone is going to start getting sick and my emetophobia is the first thing that takes over causing anxiety attacks three times as bad as the ones I typically get. When I have an attack nausea is the first side effect which due to my phobia exacerbates the situation in a circular motion, making it perpetually get worse. When you lump my basic hypochondria into the situation, it just doesn't seem to get any better whatsoever. I've become so nervous all of the time that I literally feel like I'm going insane. If it wasn't for my willpower I would have broken down a long time ago. I'm trying this website because I'm trying to find a place that can truly help, even in the littlest bit. I'm losing it and no one in my life is understanding or remotely helpful and I don't know what to do.
