  I feel like I am just losing it and I don't know what to do or where to turn, since moving here to KY I have not had one good day everyday is filled with panic BIG TIME panic, I cant sleep, afraid to eat, I am a wreck getting about 3 hours sleep a night, I just lie there thinking of everything that is wrong in my body, funny feeling in the head, lots of phlegm and choking on it, ringing in the ears, feels like I cant breath, so many more, of course everything is deadly cancer a tumor throat cancer and on and on, I feel like I am very horse which could be from the allergies here or the sinuses I do have post nasal drip, I also find I am holding the muscles of my chest and my throat tight I don't even know I am doing it and I try to relax them but they go right back to being tight. Can holding the muscles in the throat tight cause the hoarseness, I feel like I am sinking deeper and deeper into depression and agoraphobia I just want to stay in my bed, I really need some words of encouragement. Can anyone relate to my symptoms, Oh yea I did make a DR appt here in Ky and I NEVER saw a DR I saw a nurse practitioner the Dr wasn't in she said it might be allergies, I never in my life made a Dr appt without seeing a Dr. I think I might have to travel the 700 miles back home to see my real Dr. sorry for rambling I am just so scared and depressed right now.

Dear Anna,

Big deep breath, you are OK. I feel like your in the middle of a lot of change and your anxiety is rearing it's ugly head major big time here.

You can see a regular MD in Kentucky. When you make your appointment please tell them you wish to see a physician, not the NP.

Try to go easy on yourself and do not set your expectations so high. You have just moved 700 miles away from what was home for you. It will take time to make the adjustment.

It feels to me like Health Anxiety is a issue for you.

People with Health Anxiety fear that bodily symptoms may indicate a serious illness. constant self-examination and self-diagnosis, and a preoccupation with one's body. Many individuals with Health Anxiety express doubt and disbelief in the doctors' diagnosis, and report that doctors’ reassurance about an absence of a serious medical condition is unconvincing, or un-lasting. Many people with Health Anxiety require constant reassurance, either from doctors, family, or friends. You have this great site to come to and post your fears so please do count on us to help you.

I wish you peace and happiness.

Dear Anna

I agree with Kitt's posting concerning all the symptoms you are having. I've had health anxiety in the past and have experienced many of the problems that you're dealing with. I was put on Paroxetine,generic for Paxil, 20 mg once per day. It takes about a month before you start feeling back to normal. I have been on it for about 3 years and I am feeling great. Like Kitt said, get to a doctor and talk to him and he will get you to feeling much better. He will prescribe something for your anxiety. Good luck and hope you get better real soon.

Hi Anna,
Have you tried getting a little exercise? Sometimes that can do wonders for mood and sense of well being. I know it's tough to get motivated to do it sometimes, but even a brisk morning walk could do some good.
Also, if you aren't eating very much, make sure that what you are eating is healthy food. You're body needs those vitamins and minerals to function at it's peak so if you aren't getting them, it may compound the way you are feeling.
Although these aren't necessarily quick fixes, try making these small changes to your daily routine. It might just pull you out of your little slump.

Best of luck too you. We're all cheering you on.

i know how it feels, i was there 7 years ago. and now i'm here again. i feel every thing is wrong with me, cancer, hiv, basically any type of infectious disease. every single new pimple on me or different mole on me triggers something to think i have something bad. this all happened on may 4th. i went to work as normal, and came home in pain with abdominal pain (lasted 9 days). after that i became really insecure about everything. i had no idea why i became sore for no reason. i've been to the ER 3 times since may 8th. Blood work done, chest and stomach xrays done, all checked out fine, went to the dermatologist to get some moles removed to see if i have skin cancer. (haven't got the biopsy back yet) i'm basically looking to die or find out that i'm really not crazy and there is something wrong with me. this has ruined my job, i just can't focus at work and i can't wait to get home and lay down, but i don't sleep at all, maybe 4 hrs total. i'm stuck and i haven't felt normal since may 3rd. i just want to beat whatever i have or don't have. its really taking a toll on me, i have lost 15 lbs since may 4th. i'm already skinny, i shouldn't be losing weight, but i can't eat anything, i only eat because i know i have to, but the stress and anxiety have torn my body apart and burned off any good nutrients my body has stored. i do need help, i just keep everything bottled up and no one can tell i'm depressed.
