Am new to AF. Ive suffered with Health anxiety for about 3-4 years now and its worked up to being a general anxiety disorder. I worry all day everyday all because of my Physical anxiety symptoms. So If i list out how I feel every day could you all please tell me if you think its all anxiety or if im ill, because thats what goes through my mind every day. So here goes----
*Headaches (everyday) mostly in my temples or the sides of my forehead or infront of my ears and the back of my head
*severe eye ache/very tired eyes
* neck ache/ throat ache
*Extreme tiredness. (i can walk my daughter to school and be half asleep all the way there and back)
* total lack of enthusiasm
*dizziness and lightheadedness when i stand up
*increased amount of spots and boils
*inability to stop my thoughts/never have a empty head
*shooting pains in my hands and feet
*a feeling of having my neck squeezed
*feeling scared or worried for nothing most of the time
The list could go on but they are the main things, I dont worry or panick every minute of every day or am i a nervous wreck , but i seems to have a thought or worry in the back of my mind most of the time.
What I realy worry about is that I am so tired and I mean rediculously tired, I could fall asleep doin the house work ,washing up and i could nod off. i could sleep walking along. Im shattered, which doesnt make my home life any easier.
I am a mum of 3, I have a 12yr old son, a 3 yr old daughter and a 2 yr old son ( he ha nf1) and my partner works from 6-5 6 days a week.
I sleep 8 hrs average a night and so i just dont understand why my body is feeling the way it is.
Please help me, i have worrying that im terminally ill all the time cuz of this.
