I am a 19 year old female that has been diagnosed with anxiety/panic disorder. However, the past 2 weeks have been confusing. I havent had any panic attacks but I have been feeling really weird. I have been having really bad headaches that ache around my eyes and temples....and light makes it 100x worse. I also have weird feelings in the left side of my body. My arm gets like a shooting pain from my wrist up to my elbow and my leg does the same thing from my ankle to my knee!?! It's only on the left side of my body and it does it like 3 times a day. I am kinda worried about blood clots and related things but want to know if maybe my anxiety is making me hurt? I am just confused because I havent had any anxiety attacks and Ive never had these weird feelings...it almost feels like something is moving in my leg...but it only lasts for like 2 seconds. Does anybody know what I am talking about? Any advice is great. Thanks

  • Hello,Just wanted to let you know that the panic attack is normal. On top of that you worry about the other symptoms that make it worse. Did you Dr. give you any anti-Depressants? I take zoloft and Effexor together and it changed my life. But first you have to take it one day at a time. As far as you feeling weird.... that seems like a side effect from medication if you are on any. Remember you have to trust yourself. Nobody can tell really know what it's like except you. You have to live with it every day. I promise it will get better. Keep going to the doctor and get treatment until you find a solution. If things don't get better you have to push yourself harder. Make it work.... They say most of it is 90% in our heads. WHo knows? All I know is I am living proof... I been through some bad times but I made it. If I can you will too. Let me know how it goes...buddrive28872 @ yahoo.com
