I have started having anxiety for the last month.  I have burning scalpe sensations and muscle tension and aches.  I've beturn n to ER thinking that I was having a stroke or something is wrong with my heart.
I really became scared when I had a racing heart rate and heart palpatations.  Thinkning that I was about to die.   That's my biggest problem now thinking that I'm dieing.  Every pain that I feel I'm going to webmd looking up the signs oand symptoms.  I'm alway thinking of the worse.  I've never been like this.  I was laid off in june of 2009 so I' ve been unemployed for 6 mons or more and staying at everyday with a busy three year old.  At first it was cool but now my unemployment is out and I'm about to lose it.  My head is constantly burning and the heart paps seemed to have eased for now.  what can I do to
over this.  I've started back working out at least 30mins a day.  At least I was scared because I was afaird of passing out.  Can anyone help with the burning scalp.  My husband really don't care or understand he thinks that I'm crazy.  I've lost  weight and I look good.  But now since I lost weight here I go thinking that something is wrong with me and the cycle goes on and on.  Help I can't deal with
this.  I have a 6yr and 3yr and I want to be around with them.  I've prayed  help and strength and now that god will provide.

Welcome...
    I too have anxiety. Have you considered talking to a doctor about it? I don't know where I would be right now if I didn't. That is the first step u need to take.

Hi Dashone and welcome to Healingwell. I am sorry you do not receive a response sooner, but our forum has been pretty slow in the evenings. I really think that you need to get back into your doctor. Everyone responds differently to meds, and to me it sounds like you need to try another med out. I have also had good success with therapy. It helped me to understand where the anxiety was coming from and how to better handle it. Keep talking to us, we do understand.

Anxiety is one thing and Panic attacks is another. Panic attacks will bring you to that place of despair (feel like your dying) and anxiety is almost an everyday thing or transitional thing where you are freaked out about things.

I have both and hate it. I have had it all of my life. I started Paxil again about a week ago and it has eased it a bit. I am about to up the dose to 20mg from 10 and that should do it. I was on Paxil years ago for about 2 years and it worked well for me.

Just know this, anxeity and Panic episodes is just your brain telling you that things are not ok when they really are. Many of are missing that communication with our nerons that say we are ok.

YOU ARE OK!
