  • You sound like you have anxiety and tight muscles in your neck will give you sharp pains in your head that will make you grab your head and holler...when I am at work (I work in a Early Childhood Center) and by my lunchtime, I am pretty tense. Our classes get bigger and so do the academic demands decreed by the state of NY...seems like the governement wants to control EVERYTHING...even the way we teach...I have Fibro and I go in for my checkups and my back is in knots from the stress...I love the job but it is rough.... I feel like my tongue is swelling up and I can't breath...then I freak out and I start to itch and I realize it is just panic...which makes you supersensitive, as if you were not already, to your surroundings and noises...Just sit down, close your eyes and take a deep breath...do this like ten times, in and out...it will calm you...get oxygen to where it is needed and lowers your BP...I am what I call myself, a freaked out monkey...My 15 year old daughter keeps me in check...I feel your angst, but you will be okay...and as much as I love a good cigar (I used to smoke one while I played poker and yes I am a woman!) You should not smoke...as relaxing as smoking is, it IS bad for you...I take a small amount of Xanax each day...it helps. I am thnking of switching to Buspar because it is non=narcotic...or hopefully getting to the point where I am calm again...I lost my husband 9 years ago...he was 37 and died suddenly a month after 9/11 and I have not been right since...I live in NY close to NYC and lost a friend in the WTC...It was a scary place to be for the longest time as we live close to the powerplant that supplies NYC, and the planes did fly right by there that crashed into the WTC...There are still army tanks and National Guard down there...I try to stay calm and let God take care of things as well...I am not religous but i am spiritual... SO, stay away from caffeine, chocolate, sugar, artificial colors and artificial sweetners...they mess with your anxiety for some reason...I hope this helps....just breathe....:)
