Hi ladies and gents,
I'm a 23 year old female and suffer from regular headaches, constant muscle tension (leading to multiple knots in my neck, shoulders and back) and blow almost everything out of proportion!!
I've been feeling nausea on and off for a couple of days now, and finally decided to try googling it, seeing as I'd already ruled out the possibility of pregnancy and possible food poisoning :/
google came up with this: Generalized Anxiety Disorder :/
Every symptom fits me to a T, and now I have something else to freak me out!
I was just wondering if anyone out there suffers stress/anxiety/depression and has any techniques to help lower the stress levels; like breathing exercises, distracting hobbies, anything really!
Need to get this in check because its taking a huge toll on my social/personal life and really dont want to resort to relying on some prescribed crazy pill lol
Any feedback on stress coping exercised would be great!
Googling your condition is not the same as being diagnosed. Google can only tell you the list of conditions that apply to your symptoms. I am just saying that if you really do experience such symptoms, you should definitely go see a doctor and run some tests.
What is generalized anxiety disorder anyway? It just sounds like some stupid word which certain "people" came up with to explain a series of related symptoms which make no sense to them.
That is just my opinion. But if you are so sure you have this "disorder" then i suggest praying (if you are a believer) or doing Yoga. Yoga has those breathing exercises and it will calm you down.
