my panic was becoming manageable until this week and it's back full force, even back to not being able to sleep. I'm still worried about my throat. And lately my blood pressure has been up due to the anxiety which is making me worry about my health more, worrying what this is all doing to my body, worrying about having a stroke or heart attack because of my blood pressure, worrying I will never get better and i will feel like this the rest of my life. This is the worst bout of anxiety I have ever had, just seems to get worse the older I get and it has me so scared. I upped my zoloft yesterday from 50 to 75mg. Hopefully that will calm me down. I might have to take an ativan today to function and I never do that. Since since this started back in Sept I have only taken 3. Please help me. I am so scared. My anxiety is sky high. My husband is at the end of his rope with me, he just wants his normal wife back and I want nothing more than to give it to him. I wish I could snap my fingers and feel better. I feel like I'm doing everything I can, I eat healthy, I exercise, I pray, I try to keep my mind busy and it just seems to still consume me. :(

Hi Mandah. Boy, you're going through a rough time. Please try to absorb that all of the testing has been negative for having anything seriously wrong with your throat. I know it's hard with the way your throat feels. But really, it's just your anxiety making you feel like there's something wrong and then it gets heightened when you react so strongly to the possibility of a serious throat issue. I really hope that you can relax somewhat and that your husbands' patience will get better as that doesn't help things.
