Welcome to the forum, I have put in a link that some people use to help with their anxiety as I use one or two of them. Anxiety for us can be so daunting and then our minds start to race and we see doom and gloom so we need to change our ways to cope.

Hi,

I'm sorry you've experienced that. I also had sinuses infection, which felt to have gone on forweve,r I am better now.


i would call your GP, or contact crisis team attached to community mental health team, and they will come out to you, reassess your anxiety and take plans from there, now the crisis team might well be quicker to have access, than the GPs!

Could you try listening to your music at all, that could well help?



welcome aboard to MHF.


I have different forms of anxieties, not neccessarilh health, I don't have health anxiety.

Hi again,

I've just realised that you could sound out about medication for anxiety, now I take Pregabalin, a form of anxiety med, mention t his when you call GP, or crisis team, just say when referring to your health anxiety and mention one name word, Pregabalin, and check what feedback you might receive.

Now for me, Pregabalin is a marvellous med and I would very much be really lost without it.


I wish you well, and wish you good luck, with the GP or crisis team.

hI,


I think, from memory, if you call up the search engine, put in it, your borough and cmht for short. There will be some types of this coming up, actually no not cmht, put in crisis team for your borough, there ought to be a contact telelphone crisis team number.


If this doesn't work out that way, I would then contact the GP, and seek a urgent referral in, to cmht. It's been solong, I can't actually remember which way to do it.


Your welcom regarding my reply to you.

Thank you! I’ve booked a gp appointment, how did you find the side effects with the medication? I used to be on sertraline and they were awful
