Default Frogger Anyone?

Why does it feel like my mind is constanty "leap frogging" from one symptom to the next.

I am aware that i am suffering from an abnormally large amounts of Anxiety but cant i just get a break and accept that i am ok?

Today my throat feels great but i woke up this morning with a cramp in my foot and twitching muscles all over my body.

I have been taking Prilosec for 5 days now(Dr thought that GERD was causing throat irritation) and perhaps that has dehydrated me.

I did do light workouts on Modnay and Tuesday and due to my throat hurting so bad, i was not able to drink much water. Perhaps the twitching can be dehydration or over excertion and of course it could be Anxiety? UGHHHHH, either way i would like a break.

If and when my twitching stops, i am sure that i will hyperscan my body again to search for something else!

Sorry for venting!

Try an epsom salt bath and while you're in there do your mindful meditation and you can cover the muscles and the anxiety at the same time! The added magnesium might help some too.....

Glad to hear the throat is feeling better!

I'm a 39 year old, female, accountant. On July 2, 2012 I crashed my bike at the end of a 65KM road ride. I was fine that day but woke up the next morning to my current world.

Ongoing symptoms include: dizziness, blurred vision, light and noise sensitivities, cognitive problems, uncontrollable emotions/depression/anxiety, headaches (but they're getting better), mental and physical fatigue, difficulty communicating and sleep disturbances.

Currently seeing a fabulous Neuro Psychologist and vestibular physiotherapist and hoping to soon see a neuro ophthalmologist. I am currently doing 20 minute stationary bike rides daily, 20 minutes of meditating, 15 minutes of Lumosity and lots of resting. I have not been able to work or drive since the accident.

The things that have helped me the most since the accident are vestibular therapy, gel eye drops (for blurred vision, sensitivity and dryness), amitriptyline (10mg), and meditating. I am finally starting to see some slight improvements and am hopeful!

My brain WANTS to heal itself... I just have to let it and stop trying to get better!

Venting is OK. We are or have been where you are at. Your anxiety seems to be very strong and affecting all aspects of your recovery. Have you talked to your Dr. about seeing a psychiatrists. This is one injury that definitly has an emotional component.
