Why the heck am i soooo chronically anxious? I can feel "it" running through my veins. I suppose its adrenaline? I can get so panicked for no reason in the comfort of my own home. I dont know how to stop it. Ive been diagnosed with CFS and have dysautonomia issues and many many symptoms but am wondering 2 things. First....is anxiety part of cfs or is this a whole nother basket of worms i have to deal with?????? Second...is there anything i can do besides tranquilizers (SSRIs made my anxiety 100x worse).? My cortisol is sky high all day and allll night. I had the saliva test done. Only briefly in the early am is it a little low. How do i safely lower cortisol if thats even whats causing it...and will that in turn reduce my anxiety? Pleeease give me some encouraging advice. I feel like im goin just a tad mad.
