I would like each of you to know that I understand the hell you are living in which bring you to be part of this support group. I completely sympathize with all of your fears, feelings and frustrations. I know that I have had PTSD for many decades based on childhood sexual abuse but chose not to focus on it and was able to live a relatively "normal" life for the past 50+ years until a few years ago when a horrible series of panic and anxiety attacks forced me off work and into therapy and onto new medications to hopefully help with the traumatic symptoms that emerged out of nowhere a few years ago. How I wish I could get my life back! It feels like everything "triggers" me now that did not in the past. Things come back out of the blue and cause tremors, chest pain, crying from depression and other symptoms that I cannot get rid of. I have many sleepless nights, waking up with flashbacks and nightmares, some real and some imaginary. It's hell. I am trying new medications and hoping to have positive reviews to share in future posts. Just wanted you all to know that I am thinking of you. Hugs.
Does anyone else feels like your body went numb and you can't feel the same sensations as before.. how do you cope with that and does it go away ?
Ok sorry this is going to be lenghthy . 10 yrs ago while driving my son to school out of the blue I felt weak and shaky and my heart was racing. I thought I was having a heart attack. Went to ER and they said it was probably anxiety. The symptoms got worse over that year with numbness on left side mostly face, wobbly legs, feeling faint, inner shakes. Had every test in the world all normal except...
