hey new to the group I am dealing with bad health anxiety at the moment. I am currently feeling like I have heart problems & would go into cardiac arrest.

      I'm terrified of meds too. The side effects are so scary.

      Im so sorry! It's probably panic. I have been having massive panic and it turns out I have Adrenal Fatigue. One thing that helped me is starting to eat a smoothie with spinach everyday. I have massive panic about the spinach being safe so I soak it in a lot of vinegar and water first. Then I put that w a banana and pb powder or just chocolate oatmilk. Sometimes I add ice. I swallow it like medicine.

      I too suffer HA have done for a long time and used to take citalapram came off them in June 22 and my anxiety has been creeping up on me again! I have started therapy which is helping but lately I’ve been almost obsessed by my heart rate (Apple Watch damn thing) I keep checking it last night a had a massive panic attack over it my heart rate went upto 161 and I could not sleep just kept feeling my heart beating all over my body! This morning I took a propranolol which I had been given by my GP been in mg purse for months but thought sod it I need to do something, I took it about an hour a go now and am starting to feel calmer. You are not alone HA is bloody awful here if you need to chat x

        @MNLM -are you able to just take the propranolol as needed? I use to take it as a blood pressure medication and have seen different comments on people using it for anxiety…..maybe that’s why I wasn’t anxious back then, lol! I may have to ask my doc about it……

          @AuntieR yes you can take it as and when but to feel the benefits I think you need 1 a day due to side effects. It makes me a little spaced out

      You are not alone…. I get health anxiety all the time. I do have a prescription for hydroxyzine which helps but then I worry it’s going to give me side effects and then I worry about that and then I get chest pains……..
