Sounds like a panci and anxiety cycle to me. Try and join a cbt group if you can. Being in mine has helped me enormously. Once you get the anxiety under control your physicla symptoms will lessen if your experience is at all like mine has been.

No idea about the hot flashes. When I had panic I would have a prickly heat sensation run through me but I don't think that is what you are talking about.
All I can tell you is that once I got my anxiety and panic under control nearly all of my physical symptoms disappeared.

Nervous all the time
You sound like my life story. If anything upsets me at all anymore, even a bad story on the news or a bad phone call my nerves are rattling, if I am really fearful or have anxiety about something I get instant diarreah and stomach cramps.I have no energy. If I can sleep it is in the day, I can never seem to sleep at night no matter how I try . I have tried staying awake for 2 days and going tobed at the appropriate time. Doesnt work. I have sleep apnea where I hold my breath in my cheeks. The machine makes me feel like me ears are going to expolde. I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, all stress related diseases. Every other ANA test they run for Lupus comes back poitive then the next negative. I wonder if thats what your facial rash might be. I am 50 years old. Feel young in my head but my body feels like I am 90. Yet nothing that is wrong with me they say will kill me. Just makes you feel like you could die.On top of thAT Ihave degenrative disks ( arthritis in my back and neck beyond repair, Gerd,Type II borderline Diabetes.I get the same electric shock
feelings in my head. When it was all at its worst my adrenal system shut down.I was admitted twice for hospital stays because of arythmias, rashes, blood pressure at stroke level, or so low that it was undetectable. I started seeing a cardiologist and a endocronologist.And a psychiatrist. They said that it was all stress related. That I had post traumatic stress disorder, and generalize anxiety disorder which had manifested to major depression. I take Max dose of Effexor daily, Busbar up to 2 times daily, Valium 10 mg as needed, Metformin, Maxide, Propanalol,Potassium, Vitamin D, Ambien, Topamax for migraines, Albuterol inhaler, Baby Asprin. I just went in and voluntarily detoxed from MS Contin ( morphine sulphate) Now I only use Norco as needed for pain, and I use it sparingly. It is worse for me say on a friday night when I want to go otu and do something with friends or might have a date. I nstantly get the shakes the stomach fires up the cramping the shaking and then the diarreah, I am shaking like a leaf, my stomach feels as if it is saying feed me.
I was scared and the reason I go ton her and looked tonight because I was wondering about cerebal palsy or MS but all of the syptoms you mentioned and I have mentioned have led straight to stress and anxiety. I was beaten mentally and physically severely by my first two husbands, my 3rd live in mentally tortured me and took everything I had. I feel like one more anything will kill me. I am afraid of feeling, putting my self back in the world, a realtionship anything but I know I cant be a hermit. It only deepens the depression. And I also have family who drive my train of depression that I have had to remove myself from. Any of this sound familiar? I am learning to kep stress and drama and gossip out of my life, people out of my life who cause me pain. I am learning to think differently and I am getting different results. I am learning to think outside of my normal comfort zone and for once learning to love me , something that I have never done. Hope this helps.

Good job Brenda. I didn't start feeling better until I learned to take control of my thinking either. I am still a work in progress but I am countering my thoughts in the TEA form cbt exercise and my thinking is keeping a lot of my anxiety out of the way now. I think avoiding destructive people is smart too!

TEA Forms/Sam OBitz CBT book
That's awesome news to hear and I definitely plan on continuing to use the TEA forms. Have you used the other exercises in the CBT book Been there, Done that? DO THIS! by Sam Obitz. If so how often do you do them if you are still using them? Thanks in advance for your response Smile

I used them all when I was going through my group and got something out of all of them. But honestly all I have used the past couple of years are the TEA forms. Play with them and see which ones work for you and which don't and them drop the ones you don't need like I did lifepreserver

I'm way late with this reply, soo sorry! I would focus on the TEA forms but use the counter exercise in the book to jumpstart you if you need to. Also the putting things back into perspective will often illuminate thoughts you may not know are there which you can counter in the TEA forms.

Hope this helps 4you

It's a pleasure to help and so happy you are reaching your goals. My suggestion would be to stick with the TEA forms everyday for as long as you can (even if just for a couple of minutes a day) because those old bad thinking habits were in you for years and will try and sneak back in and take over if you don't stay on top of them for awhile. I still do them almost everyday just to be safe doctor
