Yes, me too.Hi
I go through low and high moods. When I posted my symptoms I was quite low. I still have the same symptoms, they haven't really gone away, possibly lessened slightly. What I have been doing though is just saying to myself "oh, that's the anxiety pain/twitch/burning, Whatever!" And try to ignore it. Easier said than done but it then helps me not to overthink. Right now my upper left arm is burning and I have pins and needles on the left side of my neck up to my temple, quite normal for me.
I also do mindfulness periodically, I should probably do it every day.
I hope this helps
Highs and lows for sure.
The physical symptoms often seem on par with the psychological ones.
I did 20weeks of CBT but didn't get much from it although I think this was down to the person teaching it. It was disorganised and we didn't really click.
I know mindfulness comes up a lot. I've tried it but I think it's time I looked more into it. I've been taking so much medication for so long that I want to try and see what life is like without it.
I have been at my lowest while taking maximum doses of things so it can't be worse.
Thank you for your reply, it definitely helps and I think I may try mindfulness again. I certainly have the time now!
Thanks and I hope your symptoms ease up soon. I think you've got a good coping strategy there. All the best!
