Am I being a hypochondriac or do have a anxiety? - November 16th 2010, 06:05 AM

I been reading about it a lot, and do not suggest I go to the doctor because I have no money or insurance to cover it. I have been feeling:


on edge
Being easily fatigued
Difficulty concentrating or a sense of your mind going blank
Irritability
Difficulty sleeping
Headaches, sweating
chills, nausea, dizziness
Shortness of breath
Being easily startled

There is also the case of social anxiety but I do not think that is happening really, I think it is a side effect from my ex-boyfriend but I exhibit those two every time I am alone in public. I wish I had a doctor, but I can't right now and my g/f will not listen to me and anyone else would think I am crazy.

Well, no one can actually tell you, because we're not professionals.

However, the symptoms you gave are pretty broad, so describing some scenarios where you feel these things would help us help you.

Once again, we cannot diagnose you, but if you're as precise as you can be describing this, we can probably give you better support.

yah but there is no where else to go for this, maybe I am just shy and need to try to make friends and just finding a excuse for it and not blaming myself

Well, you kind of have no other choice if you don't go to the doctor, or a counselor at school even.
