anxious - February 3rd 2010, 07:17 AM

does anyone ever get anxious especially during bed time? a lot of the time i feel this weight on my chest and I am not even thingk of anything. I feel like i have to hit my chest or claw at my arms for some reason. i haven't been diagnosed with anxiety. however, i think i may ask my doctor about it. sometimes i even start to gag and end up throwing up but that is not so often. i would say once or twice a month at the least. what are you supposed to say to your doctor? how do they even test it? I'm curious because i'm making an appointment soon and have decided i might talk to her about it.

Hi there,

I would definitely speak with your doctor. It sounds like you are feeling very anxious, and I promise you that it doesn't have to be this bad! Usually, a doctor will ask you very easy, basic questions--about how you're feeling, what your symptoms are, what your thoughts are like, how long you've been feeling this way, how much it's impacting your life, if your sleeping and eating habits have changed, etc. All you have to do is be honest.

I'm glad you're going to reach out to your doctor--it gets better! Take good care of yourself.
