Anxiety and Low Mood


#1

Hi All, been diagnosed a couple of years and didn’t really have much in the way of symptoms before. My main issues are a strange wobbly muscle in my neck and anxiety. The muscle is called the Suprahyoid Muscle and the Consultants had never seen it before. I had botox in it but didn’t make a difference except my voice went slurred after 2 days so probably a side effect. Its still the same but I’m hoping it goes away as Botox fades away! It drives me mad as it goes on for hours at a time sometimes. Has anyone experienced anything like this. We are going to try a higher dose of Botox next time but need to be careful re voice.

I never had a days anxiety until about 2 years ago but my understanding is that it is because of the disruption of neurotransmitters. Having CBT and started on Prozac but I wondered what meds any other sufferers are on and any advice?

Trying to get to work for a few days a week but these are causing me problems.

Hi Hilly

You are having some unusual problems. The one thing I have realised is that PD is different for every single person. I have not had anyything like you, but maybe someone else will read your post and be abel to help you. In the meantime, try to keep smiling. You must be a very special person to get something so unusual.

Yours
Audrey

Hi Hilly,

I suffer from anxiety. To find a fix is easier said than done. I see a CBT counseller which helps a bit. Exercise helps alot. I would be reluctant to go on medication for it without trying counselling and exercise first. I think we all take enough drugs as it is.

Good luck your not alone

When they did the botox there were about 8 people in there looking at my neck! I’m sure I’ll get somewhere and thank you for your reply.

Hi Hilly - there are times when it feels good to be the centre of attention. Hope you get some good results soon.
