Does anyone else feel that their anxiety gets worse when sick? I have been sick since Saturday morning and I am having some issues with my anxiety. I know that it started as a cold and then some major sinus pressure and pain. Then I think I caught the flu thing my wife got yesterday today. I can't seem to catch a break with the illness stuff. It has made my tension headaches better since I was distracted by the other pain and worse at times. But I can't seem to sleep and keep waking up several times throughout the night. I know I have issues with my breathing while sick but this is getting crazy. The no sleep is wearing me out and my anxiety and sickness is as well. I am having trouble eating and taking my meds with all the other stuff I am taking for the sinus stuff. I invested in a netipot so I wouldn't have to take as much sinus relievers. Seemed to help some but still was miserable. I did start my lexapro again. I want to stick with it and say heck with the side effects that they say goes away after a couple weeks. But if you feel worse while sick let me know so I don't feel so alone on this.
