That's so weird cause my anxiety pretty much started after I had a neck injury too... The doctors kept teling me nothing was wrong but they ended up not picking it up on their xrays and after a few months of TERRIBLE weird paind from my neck injury, I felt all freaked out all the time because the doc's kept telling me, "it's all in your head".... My pain would get worse when I drove or sat in that position with my arms up like that and I got to where I was scared to drive because of it... Later after going to a neurologist, ear nose & throat specialist, the ER 3 time & GP's, I ended up going to a chiropractor for help and he was the one that found my neck problem. He showed it to me on the x-ray and I could see it plain as day which is why I can't believe the ER didn't see anything on CT scans and xrays! I think they just didn't want to treat me further because I don't have insurance.. Anyway, the chiropractor treated me for a couple months and ALL of those weird pains I was having was gone. My anxiety stayed though.. I still had it in my mind about being scared of driving and after a couple years my anxiety got worse & worse till it turned into panic attacks. I'm now on Zoloft which has helped me a LOT. I don't have any anxiety or panic attacks at all now. I've been on zoloft now for around 2 months. I started feeling better after 2 weeks on it and I just can't tell you how great I feel now. If there's any way that you can treat your neck injury then do so as soon as possible because that alone will help to get rid of the odd pains you might be having from it such as numbness, tingling, muscle spasms, head aches, etc...
If you're not on an anti depressant such as an SSRI, then give it a shot. You might have to try a few different ones till you find one that works well for you with little side effects but when you do it's well worth it. If you're just in the anxiety faze right now, then it's best to get some medication for it now before it gets any worse. I used to think that anxiety attacks were the most horrible thing in the world till I had my first panic attack. A panic attack is like being on the verge of death every day and it's hard mentally & physically to over come. If you treat the anxiety now then it's VERY likely you wont get to the panic attack stage. A close friend of mine had anxiety and went on Paxil for 6 months then came off it and hasen't had any anxiety at all since then. Everyone is different and may have to be on the meds longer but something I've noticed so far is that the "fear" of having anxiety & panic attacks is leaving my mind day by day so, I feel that zoloft is not only helping get rid of it, it's also, helping me re-train my thought process as well. I'm getting out and doing more things now and I'm not freaked out about driving which is great cause I can live my life without fear, anxiety or panic.
Good luck & take care,
T. :)
