Hi Katie, I am 23 and was dosed with Epilepsy at the age of 20 almost 4 years ago. I often feel paranoid and nervous especially when I am around a lot of people. Well always nervous. I use to have trouble breathing, didn't want to leave my house, ect... My doctor told me to stop thinking I was paranoid and couldn't breath... Hard to do, he said to ignore it and it would go away... he also told me to get a hobby an keep my mind off things. I also noticed when I drink a lot of water it seems to help, I don't know if that's just my mind or if it really helps. I also heard that the acid in your blood has an effect on how you feel and if you exercise it burns that acid up. So far it has workes for the majority of the time... I still get paranoid quite often but I don't know of any other solutions. Please let me know if I can help with anything....
