I thought I was doing good with my anxiety and then bamm... two really bad days. I just feel so sick physically. I have severe tension which makes my shoulders and neck ache, and I just feel tired, run down, anti social and just generally sick.  I just don't know if I will ever be normal again.  I can't work out because it makes me feel more run down.  Any relate?

yes i know how you feel. for about 4 weeks now ive felt like that on and off. and its scaring me because im not sure if i have hiv or if im stressing out so much about having hiv that my body is becoming sick. my shoulders and neck ache often too all i do is try to think of postive things and relax.

I can relate to that. I was on my way to work yesterday and had a very bad panic attack while on the freeway. I felt like I couldn't breath, I couldn't tell if I was making sense when I talking and I couldn't concentrate on what was being said to me. It only lasted about 30-45 minutes but I was mentally and physically drained for the rest of the day. I had tension in my neck and a pounding headache that couldn't even be helped by Advil. By 5:00 pm I felt like I couldnt move I was so exhausted, even making dinner was so hard because I just didn't want to move.
As far as working out, I would do very light cardio because it may lift your mood. I know for me I have to do atleast 30 minutes a day on my treadmill jogging/walking even when I am tired because I sleep better at night if I tire myself out during the day.

probably from anxiety, try long soaks in a hot bath and get someone to massage you

however do tell doc as we anxiety sufferers arent immune to other illnesses
