My therapist has referred me for biofeedback since the standard medication does not work for me (just the benzo type and I don't like being on too much of those). I am for the most part housebound and do not like being alone (I even have hired a service provider to stay with me on the days my husband cannot work from home - it's getting ridiculous!)

At the consultation the gentleman told me that biofeedback should help me, but with my Lyme disease and extent of anxiety that neurofeedback would also be highly beneficial as a next step (but also mentioned that you shouldn't be on benzo meds when doing this so that's another issue I don't know if I can deal with).

I just wondered if anyone had had any success with bio or neuro feedback for their anxiety issues.

Thanks so much!
Blessings to everyone,

Good Morning and I am sorry you are not having any luck with the medications.

I know we have had a few members that have tried biofeedback.

Biofeedback uses sensors that measure specific physiological functions—such as heart rate, breathing, and muscle tension—biofeedback teaches you to recognize the body’s anxiety response and learn how to control them using relaxation techniques.

I would certainly consider this for you if nothing else has helped.

Good luck,
