For 8 months I was basically isolated, because I had no school. I had to pull out last semester because of my mothers illness, which not suprisingly was hard on me (She suffers from depression/MS).
My regular doctor kept asking me if I was depressed and I sorta didn't feel like it or denied it. I felt I had more so anxiety/mild panic attacks.
Ive been diagnosed with a lot of muscle spasms throughout my body, tension headaches (or migraines) and extreme neck and shoulder tension. I mainly ache on my left side arm , the neuro says it is due to my neck tension.
The last three weeks have been super hard. I've had so many anxiety attacks , that my leg gets week and I fall. My whole body feels like it is being pushed on , and I haven't been able to wash myself, no interest in doing things, like eating, and I can't sleep.
I've also developed a need to go to a doctor for everything. I've been to an optomologist, cardiologist, neurologist, regular doctor. They all seem to think I am fine, but that I am suffering from anxiety/depression.
My heart seems to beat fast for just sitting unless I take my blood pressure medicine or xanax. I was just recently put on xanax and trazodone. And before that I was on Soma (for spasms) Fiorinal codeine 3 for tension headaches, mobic for inflammation for my neck, atenolol for my mitral valve palpatations.
The stress of having to take all these meds , when to take them, sitting up for a few, etc is really getting to me for some reason. Worrying about the side effects etc...I have never had to be on this many meds before, so its giving me some anxiety.
I have fears of sleeping because I think what if I die.
I'm always tired, everything aches... I cry all the time. I feel confused at times and I just don't know what to do with myself.
I'm just tired of it all basically. School has been so hard to sit in a class room this week.
So could this be anxiety/depression?
