This is getting out of control. I want to enjoy my life.

I have constant thoughts that I have some terrible condition or disease.

I have the classic anxiety symptoms - dizzyness (like a bouncy or moving floor), panic attacks (maybe once a month) back pain everywhere, pains in my backside in the muscles, lots of other things. I have had the tests - all of them. I just can't shake the feeling I have something bad.

Sometimes, I feel like my limbs aren't responding correctly. This sounds wierd, and it feels wierd. Also I sometimes feel my eyes aren't working properly. I wonder if anyone ever has this.

Could it be because I'm so preoccupied with anxiety and stress and my mind is often racing about horrible diseases that my nervous system isn't responding properly? That's how it seems.

Sorry, this post doesn't make a lot of sense but it's hard to explain.

[QUOTE=Jordie]I'm not on any meds. I don't want to get into that if I can at all help it.
Just want to feel well again. I'm starting on 3 weeks holidays on Friday, so hopefully during that time I can relax. I'll go get a massage, start up Yoga and swimming.
I've seen a councellor twice, he was great, just can't afford to go back yet.
I keep thinking that I'm being naive putting all this down to anxiety, and that someday I'll be saying, I knew it was something bad. I've got to get away from these thoughts though, and think if it is something bad, then deal with it when I find out, not now when I could well be perfectly healthy.

And Yes, it's always good to remember that anxiety causes the most strangest symptoms, that's I guess why i'm always thinking this must be something else.

I hate the feeling that my body isn't functioning properly, I really do think my nervous system is stressed and overworked.[/QUOTE]

Hello Jordie,
Since you are not going to go with the medications and you are having panic attacks, panic symptoms of pains and obsessing about it, may I suggest something off the wall here? Since you think that nervous system is overworked and stressed out, considering yoga and exercise, I can offer you a suggestion of an alternative that may give you the self-confidence, reasurance of your bodies health, and learn relaxation techniques at the same time. This alternate also lets you take out your frustations as well as give you peace of mind. Find an Oriental Martial Artist and work with he or she with these fears and pains. If you can find one that practices accupressure that is all the better if you feel comfortable with it. You would be very surprized to find out just how much they know about treating the mind and body. I have an instructors classification overseas and I got so tied up in working that I never pursued it back here in the states. I had planned on returning to this myself just recently because I have seen so much knowledge from them that it was unbelievable. I wish I would have done this 10 or 15 years ago but I to thought that I could do this alone. I now can not exercise at all, so I have to forget that idea. It is just an off the wall suggestion, but I have been severely injured and fixed on the spot by them. I have seen instant recovery techniques that were just unexplainable. Just a thought, have a nice vacation.

Sincerely,

Sickman :)

Sorry I'm late in discovering this note... But here goes my two cents:
I was convinced I had just about every serious ailment under the sun for many years. I eventually learned it has little to do with the symptoms and everything to do with the way I was thinking about the symptoms. CBT has since changed my life. It's all about using the tools to learn to think more clearly and accurately about things and once you do your depression will miraculously begin to lift before your eyes. My favorite starter book on CBT is "Been There, Done That? Do This! by Sam Obitz. You may also want to check out the mood gym site for further research on CBT. Take care.
