Been in the depths of depression and anxiety for the best part of two weeks. Interested to see if the physical feelings I get are the same for others or unique for me....For me the left side of my face is always effected never the right side, head feels as if its being surpressed \ engulfed...at times my body gets very itchy..right leg from knee up its like its got pins n needles tender to touch....Anybody have these symptoms or something different....:(:cry:

Sometimes my head feels big and heavy but I don't have the rest of your symptoms. I'd see a doctor if I were you. You may have a physical illness as well as the depression and anxiety. They often go hand in hand. All the best to you.

The head thing I can relate to, and I can relate to the itching too but then again I suffer from eczema which seems to get triggered by my emotional distress.

As others have said, I think it's important to see a doctor though to rule out any physical causes.
Was wondering also how your circulation is and if you've had a previous injury to your right knee/leg? Might explain some of what you're experiencing.
