Recently I have been having HORRIBLE anxiety. I've been told that this can come along with the fibro. I honestly do not know why I get these attacks they just seem to come out of of blue.

my doctor gave me some xanex to help.. sometimes it helps other times it doesn't.

any help?

I would learn about CBT, cognitive behavioural therapy.It is great for all kinds of mood disorders.

A book was given to me many years ago by a therapist I was seeing. It is called "Feeling Good" by Dr. David Burns, MD. It is a good read, and has many helpful tips in it. It also has assessment tools that you can use to track your progress.

Take care, Annette

Kes,

I suffered from anxiety too. It is better now, but not gone. Give it some time.

I also have experienced this and what helped me was St Jon's Wort it is a herb and as long as you are not on Coumadin there isn't any drug reactions , 5HTP is used with this hope this was helpful

St. John's Wort can possibly decrease the effect of birth control pills too.
