Ive had an awful week!! I was diagnoised with anxiety back in 2005, I have had it off and on since then. I went through lots of test back in 2005 and everything came out ok. Since september of 2011 I have started having more and more anxiety issues coming up. This week it has gotten a lot worse...I feel like something is really wrong with me. If i had those test ran in 2005, do i need to have them done again?? I just dont know what to do!! I dont sleep well, I worry constantly all day about my health and im afraid im having a heart attack. please give me some advice to be able to tell what the difference is?? When should i go get help or go to the ER??
A good rule of thumb for when to see your doctor can be when do your symptoms begin to affect your quality of life? Once it gets to that point, you really should seek help, it won't get better on its own.
Any tests you had done that many years ago probably need to be redone to see where you are currently.
