So I have been dealing with anxiety again and was going to start my Effexor again, but have an appointment with a new Psychiatrist on Wed, May 27 and decided to wait to take it to see what PDoc has to say.
 
Has anyone experienced severe anger issues as a major symptom of anxiety?  And after the anger subsides, it is just anxiety?  I have never experienced this before and it is concerning me.  I will definitely talk to the PDoc about this, but in the meantime, I figured I would post on here and see what kind of feedback I got.
 
Thanks in advance!

Good Morning,

I have run into some anger issues but not severe.  Somtimes I just get so frustrated with life and people but then I have to back off and remember that I am not perfect and others must get frustrated with me and my attitude too.............I know they get frustrated with my anxiety and depression.

Take care and remember you are not alone.

Hugs
Kitt

Yes! I've had anger drive me to unbelievable anxiety. My son is with a woman who is draining him dry of everything. She doesn't love him and just uses him. He's almost homeless because he's spent all his savings and his earnings go to feed her in fancy restaurants. I suffered for three years from my anger over this situation. I finally realized that my anger and anxiety were just hurting me. My son is a full grown man and he is doing what he wants to do. This witch couldn't use him if he didn't let her. I let go of the anger but it wasn't so easy to calm down my anxiety. I'm working on it. I've always suffered from anxiety and the extreme anger made it so much worse. I am going to get over this! Oh yes, I am!

Thank you both for your posts.  I really was beginning to worry it was just me.  I hate that feeling, I would rather take any other symptom of anxiety over the anger ANY DAY!  Thank goodness I go to the Doc's on Wed...only 4 more days!  Yay!

I to do have that same problem Anger can be over whelming sometimes. But I try to catch it before it gets to bad.
Not often do I get this but I have had some major ones.
I had one hit me once where I just wanted to hurt someone. Didn't matter who but someone. I took a shower and stayed in there until it past. It was a horrible feeling. Or racing thoughts really. As I was thinking it but never ever wanted to act on it. It was one hell of a fight in my head going on.
It lasted a very short time. Probably seconds but seemed like hours. I was exhausted afterwords.
Haven't had another feeling that bad since.

Other then that I can get very upset when I'm anxious and people wont leave me alone. The kids, cats, hubby, etc seem to just load on me when I'm just not feeling right.
Now I tell hubby. Not right now. And he knows to just stand by. He knows not to touch me or talk to me just let me be. When I'm either into the panic attack or it eases up I let him know NOW is the time to help.

When I'm frustrated or upset over a situtation, that often triggers my anxiety. I find if I don't start thinking positively about how to approach and deal with the situation, that my anxiety often turns into anger. Probably because my mind starts racing and I feel out of control over the sitaution. That can lead to me lashing out at people or I just feel like a bottle rocket about ready to explode. When I was much younger, I probably wouldn't have been able to control myself. My mom used to call it my Irish temper ;), but now I realize it was my anxiety.
 
Now I usually can figure out now when the anxiety is about to go over the edge toward anger and can calm myself by breathing and focusing on why my thoughts are irrational. That usually stops it in its tracks. You are not alone. I know what you're going through!

Thank you so much everyone for your input.  I know the whole anxiety situation stinks, but I am so glad that I am not alone in these anger modes...I have NEVER had that before!  Scared the crap outta me and my husband has been telling me I am unbearable!  I know I am right now, but hopefully meds will help again, I am keeping faith!

When I feel angry, I want to tell people off, especially when I know they are just humans but it is like "What is wrong with you people?"  Then I start to beat myself up for being judgemental and  so intolerant but sometimes something feels so wrong and stupid to me that I just want to let " them ' have a piece of my tongue lashing.  So far I have held it in but the thoughts keep spinning.

I do not tolerate people that do not show an ounce of common sense.  Shame on me I know.  I hate the  guilt I feel for letting the anger come to the forefront.

The anger controls me right now, I cannot control it no matter how hard I try.  (Not that I physically have or want to hurt anyone, it is just that I get so darn angry!!  Ugh.)  Thank goodness I go to the Doc tomorrow!  Hopefully he will tell me it is just the depression/anxiety and the meds will help me again!  Keeping my fingers crossed!!
