This seems to be one of my biggest symptoms right know (along with others) I can't seem to relax. My muscles seem really tight, my chest feels tight, I feel like my insides are shaking, i'm trembling on the outside, I feel wound up in a tight ball and i'm ready to explode .I've tried relaxation and it helps sometimes. I've tried walking or doing something productive and that seems to make it worse. The only thing that helps is clonazapam but I don't want to take it all the time. This is so frustrating i'm so sorry for going over and over this symptom in many of my posts I think I just needed to vent. It's scaring me and i'm always second guessing if this symptom is anxiety or something else.

I know how you feel. I can't relax either. I want to sooooooo badly, but nothing seems to help. I do yoga, deep breathing, etc but it only works while I'm doing them. Once I stop that's it, it all comes back. I've been dizzy for 3 days straight now and it's scaring me, even though I know it's from my anxiety, I still second guess myself. You are not alone. take care

I know how you are feeling.  I too, am relying on Clonazapem.  I went running today and everything was fine while running, things are a little better since I took .5 mgs of Clonazepam 5:30 this morning.  I'll take another .5 tonight at 9 or 10.  I am not comfortable with meds either.  I don't drink or smoke and I usually excersise regularly.  I haven't recently because of a heel spur and I had the flu.  I don't want to become addicted to this stuff however I see no other option right now.  I would like to try self help however at this time the Clonazepam is what works.  Sometimes I think its best to let the panic attack run its course.  Sometimes I don't.   I was fine three days ago and for the past 10 months.  Then all of a sudden here it comes again.  Back to the Clonazepem.

Thanks for your replies. It's so frustrating when you can't relax and you feel so tense. Wiley I understand I didn't have anxiety or panic for over a year and thought it was gone forever and then this summer it came back full force. We bet it once we can bet it again.

Hmm..sometimes our "off" switch gets stuck! I hate that when it happens lol!
Just wondering if you are seeing a counsellor? The reason I ask is that I believe that although the meds work..if we haven't got to the bottom of what is really bothering us then anxiety is gonna keep coming back..grrr...which is really annoying and stops us from enjoying our lives as we so richly deserve to..

Take good care.

Hey Angela,

Yeah i'm still taking Celexa and I sometimes wonder if that might be causing my shakiness. Are you still taking the Celexa?
