> Hey could you describe your condition some more? What type of anxiety specifically did you have when it became noticeable - was it like social anxiety or one of the phobias or generalized? Have you had an official diagnosis? It's possible that you have some serious condition besides just the anxiety.

I started having panic attacks at age 12. Just came out of nowhere. I believe it was related to puberty. I had panic attacks away from my home. Imipramine pulled me out of that terror and worked well for many years.

Right now I believe my last diagnosis was MDD and panic disorder with agoraphobia. I used to just have panic attacks away from the home but now I seem to be in a constant state of anxiety. As for any other medical conditions, I was in the beginning stages of being treated for psoriatic arthritis before the agoraphobia really kicked in and I could no longer make the trips to my doctor. I recently had my appendix removed also. But I've had bloodwork and been seen by many doctors and nothing physical comes up in the tests. If I have some other medical illness it is something rare and not easily detectable. Frankly, I keep thinking this is more than just anxiety because of how tired I am but no doctor has found anything.

I just want to be admitted to a hospital for a full work up and to get stabilized. Doesn't appear that will happen though.

Thank you for your thoughts and for taking the time to reply.
