Anxiety

Hi, I am new to the forum. I have been seraching for an alternative treatment for anxiety. I have generalized health anxiety everyday all day. I excessively worry about health issues. I worry that I may pass out and get nervous about leaving the house. I take Atenlol for heart palpitations and synthyroid for hypothyroid. I do not want to take any medications for anxiety but its getting harder to deal with alone. I would appreciate any advise and recommendations you could provide.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR GIVING YOUR CASE


Go through each problem one at a time giving a full description of what happens, what pains and sensations you get, what makes it worse and what makes it better, the history of the complaint including when it started and what was happening around that time.

Write a separate section for each problem. Cover even the smallest problems you have.

If any of your symptoms occur together, or immediately before or after one another this is important to note as well.

Do not give single word or short sentence descriptions. The more information you give the better I will be able to help.

Do not read up on the remedies and discuss them. Do not attempt to use the Remedy Finder program on this site. Try to keep yourself apart from all the information about remedies on the internet. Such research on your part actually makes it harder to find the right remedy for you not easier.

Whenever you describe a sensation or pain, try to help me to imagine having that same pain. For example, what would have to happen to me to recreate that symptom?

Allow yourself to diverge if you wish. If discussing the problem brings up any emotional or mental issues, then discuss them.

Do not edit your report, except for spelling mistakes. It is important that even if you use the wrong word, you write that. You can correct yourself in the next sentence.

If you have not done this by the time you have covered your problems, discuss the problems you have generally had in your life. What have been the big traumas, the big issues for you? Where have you felt unable to change, where do you get stuck repeating the same behaviours?

Also discuss the issues you might have had in childhood. Talk about your family, your upbringing, your parents. What kind of child were you? What did you fear, what did you aspire to, what do you remember the most?

Lastly talk about the way in which you handle or cope with your problems. What are the patterns that reoccur in your life? How do you find yourself managing your problems, even if it is not successful? To what degree do your problems affect you? How do you think everything will work out in the end for you?

There will almost certainly be more questions from me after this to clarify and to explore further.

Thank you for asking for additional information.

Go through each problem one at a time giving a full description of what happens, what pains and sensations you get, what makes it worse and what makes it better, the history of the complaint including when it started and what was happening around that time.

My anxiety began 7 years go, I began having heart palpitations. The heart palps gave me a big awareness of my heart and my anxiety would be triggered by the palpitations. I the began having runs of SVT. I had an ablation 2 years ago. Once the SVT began my anxiety went up 100%. Even though now I have had that taken care of I still get heart palpitations the anxiety starts all over again and I worry about the SVT coming back. The fear keeps me from doing things. I have a fear of excercise, I hate to get my heart rate up for fear of SVT or palpitations. I find the anxiety has taken over my thoughts and life. I just started pyschotherapy and they are pushing medication which I refuse to take. I am trying Cognitive behavior changes and positive affirmations. I just need to find something to help my body get out the negative thought processes and retrain my brain.

I believe I have been an anxious person since I was a child. My father was sick alot and I always had anxiety about losing him and if anyone in the family got sick I would panic.

I am healthy otherwise, I have the hypothyroid but is well controlled with synthroid medication. I do feel I am also a hypochondriac I worry about every ailment. I get dizziness alot which I am told is related to the anxiety.

I want to break this horrible pattern and get my life back.

Thank you for your assistance.

That isn't enough information. Go through all the questions and all your problems so that I can get a feel for the whole case.

Homoeopathic case taking is very detailed, and often the smallest thing can direct us to a remedy.

Remember that I really need to understand what your problem is like to live with, to experience. Anything you can do to help me empathise with you is good.
