I'm just curious how a doctor would go about figuring out if someone has an anxiety disorder or not.. Probably from a psychologist? =\

I've always worried about everything. But lately, it's gotten BAD. I get nervous/scared very, very easily and I start to feel lightheaded, my body feels rrrreally "off".. and just weird, and I feel as if I may pass out. I had to leave my college class today because of it. Sometimes it happens outta no where & sometimes it's me.. just getting nervous or scared about my health or daily activites.. It's gotten me really scared & I'm not sure what to do about it. My thyroid is being tested & I haven't gotten the results back just yet.. could a thyroid disorder make my anxiety worse?

Also, panic attacks/severe anxiety runs in my family. If I truely have this, how would I go about getting up.. or possibly meds? They seem to help my family members.. =\

I'd also like to add I have OCD, depression.. I've always experienced some type of anxiety. =\
I thank you all SO much for your advice & comments! =D

I'm not sure if I'll be able to get another doctor's opinion.. See, I'm currently going to a small doctor's office.. which costs $25 a visit, I guess you call them health clinics?.. I don't have a doctor. I don't have a job so I can't afford a doctor, I guess.. lol I'm only 20, and my mother passed away when I was 18, so I'm new at finding doctors & stuff on my own.. =\

I'll be sure to talk to the doctor I've been seeing. She's really nice.. but I keep thinking that she doesn't know alot? lol, I dunno..

Anyways, I'll be sure to let her know how I've been feeling & all about my anxiety problems. Thanks for the help, guys. =)
*hugs* Thank you SO much, SRMom. =D

I'm not sure if my college has a health center, it's just a small community college so I kinda doubt it. =\ I'm sure we have counselors though, so I'll be sure to try and talk to one soon! I didn't even think asking them for help. =\

And yeah, going through all of this without my mom is very difficult, but I have the most wonderfulest boyfriend ever, he's been taking very good care of me. Especially making sure I don't freak out or worry too much. =P Which I do at times, lol.

When I go back to the doctor's office, I'll be sure to mention my anxiety problems! I'm kinda starting to think it's not just anxiety.. I think something else is causing my anxiety to become worse. My neck is swelling and I ache under my arms, sometimes around my chest.. I dunno if stress or anxiety could cause that. =\ I'm just not sure.

Monday, I'm going to go have an ultrasound done on my neck to see what's causing the swelling. HOPEFULLY, this will be able to tell me something! I just hope we find out the cause right away, so I can get started on fixing it.. and feeling better. =) I'm TERRIFIED of doctors, so I'm really proud of my self lately! I've been seeing the doctor alot, lol.. probably too often, lol.

Anyways, I'm very thankful for you & all the advice you've given me. I rrrreally appreciate it lots! Thank you SO much, SRMom. =D
