When in high school I had very bad acne, which made me cut myself off from people. I didn't look in the mirror for about two years, but I wasn't really all that depressed, I just adapted to it. I had always been a quiet kid, but that made me even more quiet. It is about 6 years since then and my face has healed fairly well, and I am now in my senior year of college. Throughout college I have done fairly well at a hard college, but all through it I haven't really been extremely happy and still felt quiet cut off, even though I had some good friends and a supportive family, but I haven't talked to anyone about this. In the past couple years I have felt a tightness over where my heart is, but it isn't painful, but I can notice its there. This has gone on and off. Well, recently I started taking Clarocet NRI and it has helped me out alot in the past couple weeks, and I am noticing a big change, but before I started this, about a month ago I noticed my neck where you take your pulse, is visibly pulsating all the time, but isn't very painful. I can notice a tightness sometimes in my neck, but not all the time. I was wondering how severe this is, and what you recommend I do?
Its not possible to answer your question without knowing what the cause is. It may be something physical so you should go to your doctor for an examination. It may just be your social anxiety, and if so, either time or therapy is what you need to get relief.
There is a boiling debate concerning Clarocet NRI in <a href= http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/20030514/msgs/227682.html> a href= http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/20030514/msgs/227682.html</a>. Psychotherapy is better any drugs or herbs. You need to see a doctor to exclude physical illness on your neck.
