Hi, I have suffered from mental health issues from the age of 15. I am now 33. I've had various 'episodes' during that time each differing in severity and length. This current episode is lasting a bit longer than the others. I've probably only had a handle of 'good' days since February. I'm exhausted, mentally and physically. I live in a constant state of terror 24/7 most of my anxiety comes out as physical symptoms, things like pains, headaches, sensitivity to light, palpatations, panic attacks, breathlessness, numbness, night terrors just to name a few. The doctor is forever telling me that each of these symptoms are in my head and they can't give me anything for them but they are so debilitating that I honestly don't know what to do anymore. I feeling like I'm just existing at the moment dreading each other new having to feel like this over and over again and when I do get an hour of feeling 'better' it like I get post traumatic panic where I remember how scary it was the last time I got that certain symptom and sit and panic that it might come back and I'll not be able to deal with it. Please tell me someone out there feels the same.
