Made the same post in Anxiety Forum too, posting on both cause I've been talking to different people in both forums
Ok just wanted to share a few things with you guys since you've been helping me out a lot recently. I've been experiencing some things that are a little different from my first onset of severe anxiety that hit me about 2 months ago. Here's what's been going on as of late.
The tension "pressure" headache
has calmed down, but seem to have this weird tingling sensation in the same area instead. (top of head, back of head, neck)
Haven't had a full on body trembling episode in about a month, but my hands and my feet still shake pretty often.
The forgetfullness is getting better, atleast at work anyway. Am able to remember and atleast do my job.
Things that haven't improved
Chills/Hot flashes (weird cuz Im a guy)
heart pounding (not racing, I feel it pounding when I have a bad anxiety attack. Wouldn't say it beats faster, I just feel it pounding loudly. I know that sounds weird)
Extreme self-consciousness (Which I've had all my life but seems to have worsened lately)
Sleep (waking every hour even on ambien)
Anyways, aside from the things that I have yet to improve on....are the first couple of things good signs? Am really unsure if the tingling is better or worse then the pressure. Especially feel it strongly tingling when I sneeze, and for a good 15-30 seconds afterwards too. Really strange stuff, and also I've been getting really dizzy if I stand up after sitting for too long lately. Thinking that could be a medication side effect though, didn't have that problem before the meds.
