what's going on with me?

I keep feeling as though there is something medically wrong with me. I've been to the e.r. several times & nothing was found. I keep getting numb all over & I feel as though I'm going to pass out. I've also had chest pains, shaking, & sweating. I've had anxiety since childhood & am now 23. I broke my foot a month ago & the past few weeks have very difficult mentally. Im not sure if I'm becoming depressed or if something is really wrong. Nothing seems to help. Crying is the only thing I can do lately.

i deal with this too. i constantly think something is wrong with me and I'm dying. I work myself up so much to the point where my heart is racing as if i just ran a marathon. i take .25 mg of xanax when i have these attacks and am also looking for an everyday medication to start since lexapro made me gain 30 pounds.

It's nice to know I'm not alone. My doctor suggested an antidepressant to take daily, but I don't like the idea of it. My anxiety was under control up until recently. I think i might try seeing a therapist to see if that might take some weight off of my shoulders.

Have you  tried doing a daily meditation? I have a cd that I do at night right before bed and I do find that it helps a lot.
