Anxiety & ADD?
Sep 8, 2003
I am new on this board, I have had ADD since I was about 13, I have been taking Adderall since then as well. A few weeks ago I went in to the doctor for a normal check up and my blood pressure was unusually high. I started telling the doctor about a few symptoms I had been noticing and he is starting to think that I have high anxiety. For one I always think something is wrong with my heart, it beats funny or not enough or to fast, anything can make me panic. I don't sleep well I wake up in the middle of the night with my mind racing and can't get back to sleep cause i am stressing about pointless things. Then there is not being able to catch my breath, this happens constantly. I am always taking big deep breaths. About a year ago I had 2 incidents where I had to be taken to the hospital cause I was sure I was having a heart attack or something, it felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. They basically said I had heart burn and that was that. I know I have anxiety problems and what I am wondering is if anyone here who has ADD also has anxiety? I am worried that the medication I take for my ADD has been adding to my anxiety? Any suggestions would be great!!
