  1. Yep, indeed. There isn't always an answer, and the body is certainly a very complex (and noisy) machine. It's never going to be ideal, something will always be there. The problem isn't that these things happen, the problem is that we react to them negatively (or that we react at all).
  2. What's there to be concerned about? Why does this cause you to worry? Search any anxiety related forum, and you'll find that numbness and tingling are extremely common all over the body. The head, neck, shoulders, face, arms, hands, legs, feet, etc.
  3. Well said @Iugrad91. Fatigue from cancer is generally significant, as far as I know. For example, when my dad had cancer, he could hardly do anything before needing to take a nap, even at diagnosis when it was caught very early. He was always up and around doing stuff, yard work, house fixing, etc. But he couldn't with cancer.
  4. Same here. Chin and nose, for me.
  5. Haha! I've never had gas, but they once gave me a sedative (halcion). It was amazing, even though I don't remember 98% of the appointment. 😂
  6. Eh. The body is forever changing. Sometimes changes are temporary - could last a day, could last two months. Sometimes the changes are permanent, and seemingly happens overnight. I get it, but you don't need to worry at all, IMO.
  7. Woo hoo. Very good news, Holls, thanks for the update. I hope you get over all the dental stuff soon. I personally hate dental problems. I can tolerate pain anywhere, except my mouth. Then I'm a big baby. Haha. Good for you!
  8. Not "usually", but the body changes over time. I've never had a single allergy problem in my entire life, until the past few years. Suddenly I experience post nasal drip every single day, as well as mild occasional chest congestion, among other things.
  9. Eckars Tolle has been very helpful in my attempts to overcome anxiety. I actually forgot about him, so thanks for reminding me!
  10. Indeed, fear mongering is very real. The vast majority of the stuff I see people here worry about (and that I've worried about in the past) are not nearly as common as we think. Why? Because they're sensationalized, and we see them everywhere. The internet age has certainly not helped matters any. 25 years ago you couldn't just wake up, grab a phone / laptop, go to Google and see the latest (and live) news updates. It was all word of mouth and waiting. That's not the case anymore.
  11. I've only ever encountered two snakes, personally. Once when I was 9 or 10, and I got the hell out of there. LoL! It was just a harmless garter snake, but I didn't know that at the time. The second was a tiny green garden snake, a handful of years ago. Didn't bother me. A friend and I were hiking around a local area and saw it.
  12. I agree with @Jae. Brown recluse and black widow spiders are common where I live (TN), as are poisonous snakes such as copperheads and cottonmouths. It's just something we have to learn to live with, the idea that these things are common here. We have pest control services regularly who come to manage all the pests. That's the best we can do. I personally don't fear any of them, but I also don't wish to encounter them. Haha.
  13. You're fine. Summer is not my friend either, and I tend to sweat fairly easily. I've had "night sweats" as well, many times, but it's caused by the fact that I just sweat easily, and I also sometimes tend to wrap myself up in a blanket while asleep even though it's not cold. Haha. As for waking up earlier, I get it. I can't seem to sleep past about 7am even if I go to sleep at 1am. Some days I will wake up quite tired, but no matter how hard I try, I'm unable to go back to sleep. So I'm tired all day. The dry mouth when waking up, I've dealt with that for years. No idea why, and it sucks. Dentist and doctor both have made suggestions, but to no avail. I don't think that's anxiety, just something that happens for whatever reason. I don't know if mine is environmental, because it's happened regardless of where I live or where I sleep (bedroom, nap on the couch, etc). You're fine. Think about how long you've been dealing with health fears. Some of them have stuck around and repeated, some of them are fairly new. But the fact that the worry comes and goes about each one, that tells me anxiety is the culprit. You'd be worse off by now if you had a chronic and/or terminal illness.
  14. You just need to get the anxiety under control, I think. That would likely solve most of the issues you mentioned. However, I don't know that any of us will ever feel "normal" if we have an anxiety disorder. We can get it under control and manage it well, but that doesn't mean we'll be completely free of anxiety. That's just part of life for someone with an anxiety disorder, and that's okay - we can become better than we are at our worst, if that makes sense?
  15. I've not had any extractions yet, but I'm due for a couple. I imagine a wisdom tooth may be more difficult, as they're all the way in the back and they're often affecting other teeth when removed. I know several people who have had back (or close) teeth extracted, and they had no complaints. Said it was super simple and quick, and no issues afterward. If that helps any.
