    Hi 44 here and with GAD , you will feel physical symptoms as i battle everyday,, from my neck to my feet .. feel like stiff neck, lower back pain, racey heart , facial pain, you name it i feel it , but iam on no meds and i do CBT and it helps .. hang in there and try not to entertain the physical symptoms , even stomach issues is a big one ...

    The more you feed into the pain the worse it will feel.. breathe , and exercise that helps alot ..

      i understand i have bad health anxiety so on top of everything else every ache and pain makes your mind go crazy ..have physical sensation with GAD is your body protecting you , its the flight or fight response .. so its your muscles tensing it up ..some doctors say its fibromyalgia .. who knows but i promise you will be fine

    Thank you I have this app that I use as well.....some times it helps but i just don't yet understand all that anxiety can do and be. Google doesn't help and it seems like the Drs just try to push away. They just keep telling me to try this out patient program that is offered near me and to be honest I'm not sure its what I need. My symptoms WITH OUT a racing heart and or anxiousness are tingling/numbness, headache, dizzy and feeling shaky can I have these and it be anxiety with OUT the normal heart racing and anxiousness? My panic attack or something that just came on made me feel overwhelmed anxious heart racing and I felt dizzy. I am also waiting an MRI for my headaches and don't know if that's just not helping the situation.

      yes i get just like that i promise , dizzy , headaches, same symptoms been checked , and YES after all this time i still ask doctor how can anxiety bring these symptoms on but it does,,.. remember the second we say oh no what is this , then the panic will sent in ,, so try and let the symptoms be there .. this is alot for you i understand , 1st go to whatever check ups and test you like and rule out medical stuff .. then 1 step at a time with anxiety you can message me anytime .. i am on here alot , we are all in this together and you will be fine .. one day at a time..

    I try to not let it get the best of me. I use the DARE app (if you don't have it check it out!) It has helped me in so many ways. I am getting better little by little. And when I'm having an attack I use the SOS button for I'm having a panic attack and they don't seem to last as long. My MRI is for my headaches but I also have Chiari Malformation so they want to make sure its not that causing the headaches. Thank tou for helping in my time of need. I seem to be helping others in the same situation in an anxiety support group on FB but I seem to forget all that when I'm in the situation 🤦‍♀️

    I need a mri as well. I have some many body aches and pains my mind race at night. Right now it the headaches for me and now leg pain or my pantyline hurt. Or even my lower back on boths sides. I'm NOT to good with all the medical diagnosis so I FREAK OUT ALOT when pain strikes that I NEVER had before. ESPECIALLY after they said I have IBS from have GAD. JUST WISH TEMPLE HOSPITAL GIVE ME THE DEEP ROOT AND MEDS THAT HELPS. IM 39 AND HAVE 6 KIDS WITH 1 GRANDDAUGHTER WHO ADORES ME TO THE CORE.
