Anxiety Disorders/Anxiety Issues?


I've been having issues for years. At times my right side of my body is cold or too warm. Now I have prickly feelings, it's strange and worrying. I can't see my doctor for a few days but could this be anxiety? It just started a few days ago. I did read it could be a stroke, heart attack or MS! I am scaring myself silly. So I relax and see what happens?

Hi Becky,

It is always wise to first have any medical symptoms checked out by a doctor before considering nutritional treatment. If tests turn out negative please come back for further questions.

I have a degree in Psychology from the Sydney University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Nutrition. I am also the author of “GETTING OFF THE HOOK” which deals with the nutritional and psychological treatment of personality disorders. It is freely available on the internet at Google Book Search. I am interested in the relationship between nutrition and behaviour, and as a Probation ans Parole Officer facilitated groups for offenders, many of whom were alcoholics and drug addicts, sex offenders or compulsive gamblers, as well as the whole gamut of “personality disorders”. I am also the ex-editor of the Hypoglycemic Health Association of Australia Newsletter, a quarterly publication dealing with hypoglycemia and related health problems. Its web site, together with a shortened course of PSYCHOTHERAPY can be visited at:
