Anxiety, Psoriasis, Ovarian Cyst and TMJI'm a 28 yr. old female with psoriasis that appears on the forehead, along the hair line, and behind ears. I have TMJ from grinding my teeth at night while I sleep. I also have social anxiety with the following symptoms: heart palpitations, trembling of legs and hands, dizziness, pressure on top of the head, and tension in face, neck, and shoulder muscles, fear of losing control, and dread. I also have a large cyst on my left ovary.
I was born with a heart murmur but otherwise I was a pretty healthy child and learned to walk and talk early. I grew up with a constant fear of being separated from my family (for a good reason). At about 10 yrs. old, I had to change households and countries. It was a huge change and I felt very sad and anxious. My new dad was physically and emotionally abusive and my new mom was emotionally distant. I felt that I always had to be perfect or else I would upset them. I always had good grades in school and worked from a young age, yet my parents were never satisfied and continued to be restrictive and critical.
As an adult, I still feel that I am a perfectionist with a deep fear of failure . I have a fear of people judging me and can't tolerate embarrassment. I put on an air of self-confidence to appear strong, but inside I feel weak, sad, and anxious. I also have a fear of losing control in front of others and a fear of making mistakes. After many unsuccessful relationships and friendships, I have a hard time trusting people and I am usually guarded (especially around strangers).
My anxiety symptoms increase when I have major changes happening in my life. I fear not being able to handle the unknown.
I have a feeling that I am a Lycopodium, but I'm also leaning towards Thuja or Nat Mur. Please guide me in the right direction...
