Hi. What medications are you taking and are you seeing a psychiatrist?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK Patrick--and are you seeing a psychiatrist?

And can you tell me more about the brain pain and the racing thoughts?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes i see a psychiatrist but it is a different one every time

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And have you discussed the brain pain and the racing thoughts with one of them?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes they tell me to do belly breathing

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK Patrick and we can continue after this if you'd like.

This doesn't sound like schizophrenia and I don't think you're insane.

It sounds as though you may have an attention deficit disorder and there are medications for that like Adderall, Strattera, and Ritalin.

And the racing thoughts and lack of concentration are worrying you and making your anxiety worse.

You need to ask your doctor to evaluate you for ADD

Let me know if we need to discuss this any further
