Hello, first time poster long time lurker/observer.
right, for about a week and a half I've been suffering with a stiff neck and a mild head ache that doesn't seem to go away and just lingers around. I've also been a little spaced out not really feeling myself and just a bit disjointed from everything, also forgetting some simple things and suffering to understand some little things. Over the weekend my neck has comes in waves of being more stiff. I've also had a loss of appetite, I mean I can eat and force myself to eat but I could go with out eating and not feel hungry and feel a little sicky from time to time.
A little background info, I used to suffer from anxiety and have always been prone to worrying plus mild OCD but then moved onto smoking weed, which seemed to mask the problems. I used heavily for about four years or so but recently I have given up smoking weed and cigarettes, I've been two months sober but I feel the anxiety has come back tenfold, I scare myself into thinking I'm hugely ill by a misplaced spot say on back of neck or a random pain scares me straight. Over the weekend I scared myself into thinking I had meningitis and vomited probably due to the anxiety. I've been to several doctors and a few have said that it's down the repetitive strain injury which I believed could be true due to the many years spent at the computer in awkward positions but due to the other symptoms I'm not sure.
I'd really like someone to help shed some light on this, can anxiety be the cause of these pains? Are these normal symptoms from giving up weed?
thanks in advance!
