Hi doc1. I feel the same when anxiety is too high. My legs feel like jelly. I have a hot water bottle I think as a comfort blanket type of thing. Have you seen the doctor or spoke to them about this

Have you had your blood pressure checked recently Doc? Could be that maybe. The head and neck stuff at least.

Hi, yeah they are fed up with me now I think, I thought it would start to ease a bit but if anything it’s getting worse, only way I can sleep is with lorazepam but given on a short term basis

They won’t prescribe on a long term basis due to the addiction. I take 2mg diazepam but been on it for a long time. I need it also to calm my ventricular ectopics and vestibular problem. Did the doctor not suggest anything else that might help. It is really hard to even speak to a doctor let alone see one in lockdown. They won’t be fed up with you at all. Have you tried a therapist

Yeah I only got a 2 week supply, they have tried me on ssri’s which made me far worse than I was at the start, only felt a little shaky an now i feel really ill, my work have set me up with some sort of one, been off work 3 months now and had never had a day off in 6 years before that

You will need a good therapist band you have to click so you can be open and honest. So sad you have been off work that long. Did the doctor suggest mental health services as psychiatrists are the only professionals who can diagnose and then give the right treatment

They mentioned someone I could speak to along those lines I think, finding everything hard because of so many symptoms, honestly feel as if something is wrong in my body whether it be the medication I was on or antibiotics they prescribed a few months back, something not right at all

Have you actually seen the doctor as we cannot get in to see ours. We speak to the reception and if you can get past them the nurse practitioner

Gosh I am not sure what else to suggest. Try some mindfulness on YouTube as it can be relaxing when you learn to relax. Are you in a crisis
