How to cope with sever anxiety dissorder

User Profile
I started having symptoms of what I thought was a heart attack just a week after my second daughter was born. I kept going to the er where they dis ekg's and other tests and said I was fine then sent me home. This happened over and over and I completely fell apart. I honestly felt like I was going insane! I went to a heart doctor and they did an ultrasound on my heart then told me I had a strong heart. I finally went to a psychiatrist where I was diagnosed with extreme anxiety/panic disorder and put on klonopin and a anti-depressant. The antidepressant made me feel weird had had awful side effects. Like I was unable to climax and that was not ok with me! I to this day have extreme anxiety with such effects as: rappid heart beat, sweats, blurry vision, feeling uneasy, trouble sleeping, afraid of dieing, fainting spells, trouble thinking straight, pain in my left arm, agitation, a need to pace etc.... I can't stand this feeling! The Dr appointments are expensive and I don't have insurance! I am going on 7yrs of this and am feeling so helpless! How have others been able to deal with this when they can't afford to go to the Dr?

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.Anxiety can be a problem. It needs frequent psychological evaluation, psychotherapy sessions rehab sessions and psychiatrist consult. Cognitive behavioural therapy helps too.



Take care
