Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell,

No I do not think you are going insane. I am glad to hear you have followed up with Doctors in the past. As you posted in the anxiety forum I am wondering if any of the Doctors suggested that your sx could be caused by anxiety?

Here is a link you may want to read:

Anxiety Symptoms, Anxiety Attack Symptoms (Panic Attack Symptoms), Symptoms of Anxiety:

Just click on the link. :)

Also you may want to visit with your PCP to discuss anxiety and see if therapy would be a good option for you.

You will read many stories here in the forum that will help you understand anxiety.

Again a warm welcome,

your unreal feeling is called depersonalization i also have it, it will not hurt you just a side affect of anxiety. and the not wanting to leave the house due to something bad happening i also had its called agoraphobic, you can get over both of these trust me i did.

Mikes,if you don't mind me asking how did you get over it? I've been dealing with those feelings for years. I know those feelings are side effects of anxiety but how do you beat the feelings! Like Sun,i'm on meds but i still have them.I have to say i have better days than others but i want to be rid of it all together! I feel your pain Sun,all i can say is keep trying and hopefully you will get better.

well i have never really got over it i have just learned on my own how to deal with it. when i have attacks i get that unreal feeling and yes sometimes it still scares me, but i always remember it will go away. but to tell you the truth really you ned to try to stop thinking about it and antisapating it. its really mind over matter thing. i read alot of books of anxiety i also saw a therapist for a few weeks which i thought didnt help. i think its all about self educating and really having people in your life to support you and listen even if (like me) you tell them the same thing day after day. iam 27 i take zoloft and xanax for attacks. i have dealt with this since i had my son 6 years ago. thats when it all started after i had him i had post partum real bad and it all branched from there. but i know i will have to deal with it the rest of my life and you know what i say about that.... THIS IS NOT GOING TO TAKE ME DOWN....IAM IN CONTROL. try to laugh at it bring on the anxiety and then be in control and make it go away. try it really..lol you are and always will be in control. we are all very strong even when we dont feel it.

I don't think it is all in your head. I think we know when something is not right. Then again, I seem to have a bit of hypochondria myself and I always think something is wrong with me. The thing is that I have Ulcerative Colitis and prior to my diagnosis, I always felt tired and generally unwell and finally all of the symptoms came to a head and I started having a lot of bowel issues. This happened over the course of a few years. Everyone would always say I was exaggerating and I can't be so tired or I can't feel THAT bad...

Not saying this is what is going to happen to you, you have very different symptoms and they sound like the majority of them are linked to your anxiety. Regardless, anxiety is a real issue and it's not "in your head". It's not something you can just turn on and off as you please. It's hard to grasp because you may not have anything physically wrong with you but stress about feeling unwell can cause physical symptoms to arise.

Even though I am diagnosed with a condition, I continue to worry and stress. It would probably be the same for you. I have started seeing a therapist to help me deal with my chronic condition and hopefully my hypochondria. I also got medication to treat these attacks of anxiety but I am still experiencing hypochondria.
