This doesnt seem to be a common sympton mentioned in the forum but i have uncontrolable trembling as a side effect to anxiety. I used to put this down to ‘normal’ human reaction. However, about a year ago when trading in a old car and buying a new car I found myself worrying for days before about filling out the paperwork. While at the dealership my anxiety got stronger and stronger to the point that i couldnt think straight. This isnt the thing that worries me, its the physical trembling that makes me feel out of control.
Im sitting at the desk with the salesman and my partner, who calmly completes his part of the paperwork. I know its coming, its my turn. The salesman looks at me and says ok, this one is for you!!! Hands me the form and a pen, well at this point i could have burst into tears! I kept thinking oh my god there is noway i can control this shaking. How do i possibly begin to control this trembling. Turns out i didnt control it, my writing was terrible. Shaky. I had trouble remembering my own information. The form felt like it went on forever.
After this i cried for days. My anxiety was constant for weeks. I kept thinking about all of the future situations i would have to deal with. Right in the middle of this I had to speak to manager in work, who wanted me to travel to London…this tipped me over the edge, how could i possible go, check into hotels! Be around strangers. I broke down in tears right there infront of him and had to explain in emabressing detail why i couldnt go.
At this point i tried hypnotherapy, anti depressants, CBT & now propanolol. I felt better for a while but its back.
I am buying a house. We have been saving for it for years…it should be really exciting. This week i have to go into the bank and close a savings account. Im terrified. I know i have to sign the paperwork. Although this is days away, i cant sleep, my anxiety is extreme, im crying alot, cant concentrate.
I have literally just started this program so not sure i can rely on it to help. So im hoping someone, anyone can relate to this.
