Hi! Over the past four months, for the first time ever (that I'm aware of) I've been having issues, and I'm not sure if it's anxiety, nerves or maybe a combo of both. These began after a significant trauma, so I'm pretty sure these things are a result of it. I can only share what I'm experiencing, but beyond that I'm not sure what's going on. I do plan to see my primary doctor next week (Fri) about this, but wondering, for those with experience with either of these, if you would mind sharing your insights. I'm thinking they're very possibly two different things, but just not sure. I realize you're not doctors, but guess I'm just putting feelers out there as to what I might expect to hear from my doc. Now, I've been having random moments when I have thoughts (hard telling which ones trigger this) where I feel this tenseness through me. Sometimes it also leaves me feeling a bit naucious (but not every time) although I haven't gotten sick when that happens even though there have been times when I've really hoped I would. I don't feel any extra energy or anything of that nature. Simply put: It's just like someone has turned the light switch to my nerves on; that's it. Now the other part is when I think I'm feeling anxiety. I feel a massive surge of energy rushing through my body (different than the possible nerve issue), and I can't sit still to save my life. My thoughts run rampidly, and usually leaves me feeling like I want/need to climb a wall. Basically it leaves me feeling like I'm about to lose my mind - wondering when it's going to end. These times last longer than the one listed above. I never feel naucious during these times, though. Does anyone have any experience with these? Can you tell me what I 'might' expect to hear from my doc? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
