Hi all, i'm new to this forum, I been having anxiety disorder for over ten years now along with other problems from when I was painting cars for a living.

I have been fighting with cfs, mcs, diabetes and my wife for not being able to work or going into the public for to long at a time without having to leave.

I just found this forum today, when I was looking up why I was getting a shocking feeling in my head and had asked the doc. what this is from and that I have had it sence I wen't out of work from being over exposed to the paints that I worked with, alone with the other things all at the sametime, I wen't from an active person that could hike in 15 miles with a heavy pack to someone that can hardly walk a half mile without having to take a nap afterwords. There's more but I will keep it short for now.

I just added a subject so the post is easier to find and follow.

Hi. I am so sorry to hear that you are going through such a hard time. My heart goes out to you because I understand. I used to be a dynamic, energetic person but I suffered an emotional breakdown (PTSD), major depression and anxiety due to divorce, job loss, chronic (daily) migraine, financial distress and more. I wonder if I will ever be the same again and I mourn the loss of my old self. I do understand how you must feel. If the feeling in your head continues, don't hesitate to go to the doctor and get a referral to a neurologist.
DX: chronic migraine, cervical degeneration, depression/anxiety 
RX: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Soma, Immitrex

  Thanks, I have seen a few doctors on this matter and the problem is that I live in a small town and the doc's here don't seem to know much and about it and the nearest big city is over 400 miles away round trip and from what I have been reading I may need to be checked for MS.

I know that the chemals that I worked with have miny side effects not just on the cns, but I just can't control my hands from shaking, the cfs and the shocking in my head and eyes.

It's got me kind of afraid to find this out but after fighting with it for so long it might just be a releaf (sp) to find out what it might be, I may get some real help and stop having to take so miny valium a day just to feel half way normal.

It's nice to know that others do care in this world today,  For I have lost so miny friends from this condition and I know that my wife is in a lot of distress from it that I think at times she want's to get the big D, but she still hanging on Thank God. I now have my hearing date for SSD after fighting with them for 3 years now, and I'm afraid that I my blow it (I get so nervus and can't talk and go into an attack) but I do have a lot of med. reports backing me up.
One thing that I'm sick of is that every Doc I seen refer's me to see a Therapist, so I go and they do there testings and say yes we can help up but once we get into it they all say the samething that they can't help me, and found out that it's from the chemcals that I worked with for so long, then it's back to the old Doc. I tryed for retraining though the State but even they refused me for schooling. I want to work so badly but with cfs it makes even a simple job that should only take a few hours to do now takes day, but I keep trying in hope that I may someday be able to return to work.
It's nice to know that there is a place to vent off, I try not to vent off to my wife about it she is all ready under a lot sress having to be the one to make the money for us all.
