anxiety depressioni posted earlier about my condition- i get very severe anxiety followed by depression- my limbs- arms and legs feel like they have disappeared- it is a paralysis like weakness- but i know my limbs are there. i can move them perfectly. they seem disconnected from my body. it's a terrifying feeling. it is all caused by anxiety. then i get depressed. i have no problems in life and have no reason to be depressed, but this problem with my arms and legs is causing me depression. my homeopath said take anacardium 15 but it gave me severe stomach ache so i stopped it. i get scared easily then my adrenaline levels go up and i get panicked and anxious, i feel like dying or i feel i am dying. what should i do.

suffering is every few weeks usually every two months severe anziety (NOT a two minute panic attack) this lasts long and days. makes my arms and legs feel paralysed even though they are not. it starte nov 2006. no cause i am happy.
physical sufferings are that arms and hands seem disconnected from body. numbness sometimes on face. severe headaches where my eyebrows are.
mental sufferings: i think my teeth are chewing glass or i imagine a pin is being stuck in my fingernail.
lack of sleep aggravates. being alone aggravates.
i like hot humid weather.
i like salt.
i crave spicy foods. like chinese.
sleep is ok but the last week has been awful.
hunger and thirst ok when i am not anxious.
peculiar symptoms are the feelings of paralytic weakness in arms/legs. or the eating or biting on glass feeling.also i get immense fear for one minute, a sinking, black, dark feeling and this then makes me depressed for three days or more. or a week.
dreams nothing notable.
no medicines taken before. dr. s want me to take prozac.

cycles are good. 28 days.
no diseases in family but mother also had some anziety depression many years ago.
