Hi everyone, I am new to this group. I am 44 years old, but have suffered from anxiety in one form or another for years, but only in the last 3 to 4 years it got really bad. I was finally diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, so drs thought once that was under control that My anxiety would be alot better, and it is better, but not gone. In other words I don't have full blown panic attacks anymore, but still have anxiety issues. I am scared to be alone, I hate driving alone, I always want someone with me. Don't know if anyone else gets this, but I have issues with holding still, like I get nervous at stop lights, standing in line, stuff like that, its hard to describe. Next week I have to go for a heart stress test because my heart is racing and now that my thyroid problem is better they can't figure why my heart is still racing. I'm really scared and nervous about getting this test, of course I get really nervous over any medical procedure. And I worry too much, another of my problems. OK, sorry this is so long, hopefully I can learn something here to help me. I should add that I take ativan- 1mg- 3 daily. They do help take the edge off, and help me sleep well at night, but of course I'm totally addicted to them. Oh well, whatever gets ya thru the day. Thanks for listening. Bengalgirl
