You need to make sure blood work is tested for:
25 OH Vitamin D (level needs to be above 50ng/mL)
Serum Vitamin B12 (level needs to be near 800)
Deficiencies cause all those symptoms. I had them. Had to buy over the counter supplements to recover. It's been 14 weeks. I'm better, but still have symptoms. Magnesium is calming.
Some Deficiency symptoms:
Body/muscle pain & weakness
Tingling in body
I also worry last 3 weeks ive been off work I was fine at work tell I had a fever ever since I've been in the hospital 4 times this month cause my heart beats fast constantly they did ekg blood tests and told me I'm fine all I wanna do is lay but I can't relax because of my heart my feet sweat and I'm constantly worrying
I would agree with the ER docs. It is anxiety. I have dealt with this my whole life. You truly feel like you are going to die. There are some really good information on line dealing with anxiety. I just recently started going to a counselor to help me deal with my anxiety. It will take time. I find when I am having an attack, talking with someone or writing in a journal helps greatly. It make me focus on something else. Plus, my counselor told me that when you talk or write you use at least 4 different parts of your brain. When you are having an anxiety attack, you are only using 1 part of your brain. The front lobe right above your eyes. That is where our fright or flight occurs. He calls that your "monkey" brain. By writing it talking that pulls you out of that part of your brain. Then you are able to get back into your human brain he calls it. I hope this helps you. I have walked and still do walk in your shoes. It is very uncomfortable and hard for others to understand. Take care and please let me know how you are doing.
I get the aching in the cheeks and forehead were the temples are and i also get throat numbness,hands,arm and chest pains that come and go
Hi I'm feeling the same no better I can't take this anymore , my blood tests came back ok , would a blood test pick up on heart problems? I'm a nervous wreck no energy breathless chest pain. Doctor said he thinks it's depression so gave me tablets but just keep thinking it's something else .
Yes, it could be depression and panic attacks. Take your medicines properly and try some breath exercise, it will help you to relax your mind and heart.
Its normal to have these worries, and by taking proper medication and therapy you will get rid of those symptoms.
