Having anxiety about having anxiety?

Does anyone else have anxiety about having anxiety? I know it sounds kind of stupid, but I am pretty sure this is what I am doing. It can really create a vicious cycle of anxiety though, lol. I am really too tired right now to give a complex example, but it is like when I have anxiety I start wondering why I am having anxiety, and worry about what caused it, so then I just stress myself out more trying to figure out what caused it. Then sometimes I will worry about the physical symptoms my anxiety causes, which in turn just makes it worse. Then I worry about how to fix my anxiety, but at some

Is this the point of anxiety medication?

The answer is: It depends. If the cause of anxiety either goes away or loses its ability to freak the victim out, then no need for meds -just as you would not take aspirin for a headache you don't have. Frequently, therapy helps resolve the underlying panic and anxiety issues. But if the anxiety is still there, then so will the meds be there -especially if the anxiety is not pervasive; that is, itm occurs only in particular cases -such as flying, pubglic speaking, etc. Does the doctor plan on removing. Depends on the doc and depends on how the doc sees the situation: ask the doc. I was an anxiety sufferer for 40+ years, for the last 3 of which I took meds and therapy. The therapy resloved the panic/anxiety. I have been free of the panic and free of the meds for the past 8 or so years, and expect no recurrence. Your mileage will vary, dee doctor for details.

Can anxiety cause digestive issues?

Yes, you can have stomach issues when you have anxiety. Many of us anxiety sufferers have all kinds of stomach problems. I would recommend seeing your Dr again to make sure nothing else is going on other than your anxiety. If it is your anxiety then the Dr may have you take something for your stomach to keep the excess acid down. I would also recommend trying aloe vera juice and eating yogurt. I've found that honey is really good too. You can add it to your yogurt. These things could help get your system back in balance. You really should get back in to see your Dr to see what they have to say.

trying to connect the dots

welcome to this forum. i've been visiting here off and on since last august and i can't put into words how helpful this forum has been for me. i hope it will be the same experience for you. the reason a place like this is so helpful is because it's easy to think you're crazy. it's easy to start believing the weird thoughts that go through your mind and to think the anxiety will never get better. it's easy to get so lost in yourself and the pain of true anxiety that it feels like hell is very real and it exists in your own mind. but a forum like this, at the very least, provides a reminder that you aren't alone. there are so incredibly many variations and extremes to anxiety, but you're certainly to find people here with similar experiences. i'm sometimes a recovering addict. i'm also sometimes an addict. i don't have bi-polar, but i do have major depression and ocd. i've had severe rounds of anxiety that i thought for sure would kill me. my cousin is bi-polar, so even though i don't have it myself, i do know it's not something anyone wants to have in their life. that all being said, i think the best use you can get out of this forum is to read others posts and try to relate to them when you can. thats what helped me. it reminded me that i'm a person, not a disorder. also i think it's good that you're looking for ways to improve yourself. thats the best attitude to have. at my worst, i went 2 or 3 straight weeks with anxiety so severe that it was like having a full blown panic attack constantly. i thought i'd die, and i thought that if i didn't die i wouldn't want to allow myself to live if that was the kind of hell i'd have to suffer. but what got me through was that i kept hope and i kept my family close. also there came a time where a few hours would pass where i started to feel somewhat normal again. i made sure i appreciated those hours and when the anxiety would return, i'd remind myself that it's worth living even if only for the few short hours where it would subside and i'd feel semi-normal. those brief windows of normality eventually grew into days, but it wasn't a quick process. now i feel very lucky that my anxiety is something that no longer completely consumes me. anyway...don't know that any of that helped. like i said, for me it was reading the experiences of others in this forum that helped me the most.

Chest pain

In my experience with anxiety, you can have symptoms at any time, even when you believe you are not experiencing anxiety/panic.  Obviously, we are already stressed and tense, so the anxiety is pretty much there in my opinion.  I also believe that we can become hypersensitive to any symtpoms that we believe are a problem.  For example, when I was worried about heart health, I felt every little twinge, palpatation, pain, name it, I felt it.  I also believe that we tend to misinterpret our symptoms as well...for example, any pain I felt, I immdiatley thought there was something wrong with my heart.  This combination of hyperawareness and misinterpretation can be confusing and scary in the beginning. I assume you have been diagnosed with annxiety by your doc and that he/she says that you are okay physically.  Are you getting help for the anxiety?  Keep us posted!

Anxiety relapses...

I also know how awful relapses can be. I had my first panic attack one year ago this April. I'd just like to say that, from my perspective, you're a very lucky person in that you know it's anxiety that's causing your symptoms. For almost six months after my initial panic attack, I had every medical test in the book done, trying to figure out what this mysterious dizziness / faintness / nausea / and muscle tension was being caused by. So, I think you're already a step ahead of most people, which is crucial in that you can begin coping with it earlier.           As for the relapses, I know how frustrating they can be. During them, you feel just as bad sometimes as you did during the initial attack. What I find helpful is believing that there's value in the struggle. In other words, I know that I'm a stronger person now than I was a year ago because I was forced to be. You either crawl up into a ball and feel sorry for yourself or you find a way to live that makes the condition most bearable. I have more respect for myself now than I ever have only because I've been put to the test as they say, and yet, despite how lousy I feel some days, I continue to go to school, have an active social life, and hold down a full-time job. I know you'll be alright. Just hang in there and keep posting on this site. It's helped me so much over the past year. Good luck.
