Hey all. I am 24/F and started getting anxiety attacks in 2002, I was on meds for it and I went to counseling but I moved and now I'm off the meds and no one to talk too. My anxiety is so bad, I get these wierd vibrating sensations in my head ( i can't even explain) it is so scary, then I get this feeling like if I don't get up and do something I'm going to die, my heart rate jumps up and I freak out basically. It all started after I had a car accident in Nov. 2002. It seemed like I was doing really good for awile even off the meds but my husband recently left for Basic Training and now that I am alone it has came back full force, I can't even drive for short periods of time without worrying am I going to passout or are these head sensations going to come back .... it's like what am I to do? I used to be this care free person who lived life and now I am some sort of a freak who can't even enjoy life without worry. I'm scared to get back on my meds, I've grown all these phobias now, I can't even go to Wal Mart without feeling like I am going to pass out. Then like ever other month I get swollen lymph nodes either behind my ear or on my jaw bone and the Dr. says it's ok, I feel flustered by evening time like I am burning up ( hot flashes) and it's not my blood pressure, sick to my stomache, I have tension headaches all the time it seems, I get these muscle spasms in certain parts of my body (they don't hurt, just annoying)... I went to the ER because while I was looking in the phone book for a good sushi place, I got the weird sensation in my head and freaked out, the Dr. said none of my symptoms resemble an emergency and said he just wants to reassure me I was okay, anything could cause anxiety, he said I have gotten it just because I was looking for the sushi place or because the day before my husband left for BT. So now I feel like a dumb@** for even going to the ER. Anyone else get like this?
