I have been experiencing anxiety for a few years now. It started with a few random anxiety attacks, and soon it spread. I find it hard to leave the house on my own due to this. I feel ashamed, and my self-esteem is very low.
I am usually a proud person, very independent, determined and self-sufficient, but this issue has impacted my life negatively. I find it hard to socialize now due to shame about the anxiety symptoms showing up and this led to shyness. I feel depressed and have low energy. I do not enjoy the things I used to enjoy anymore. I had some significant losses and failures in my life in the past few years, and I think this might also be the cause for all this.
The anxiety symptoms are pretty much like panic. I get heart palpitations, cold hands and lots of muscle tension, especially in the neck, face, and eyes. If I feel very nervous, my neck gets so tense that it twitches. I also experience lots of self-criticism and guilt because of this. I have high expectations of myself and consider this problem to be unacceptable.
I tried many of the common homeopathic remedies for this (such as Ignatia, Staphysagria, Arsenicum, Sulphur, Graphites, Pulsatilla, Calc Carb) and nothing seems to help except for Aconite 200. The problem is that Aconite only helps temporarily. I need something that works more long-term. Is this something you can help me?
