Anxiety: I understand your distress. Ativan helps with anxiety and tension. “Insane tension in the body” indicates insufficient dose of Ativan, (lorazepam) lack of resolution of stresses of relationship, marriage, separation, work and finances or new stressors in life at this time. Skelaxin can cause nervousness or irritability. See a Psychiatrist soon for Diagnosis, Therapy, Medication, Relaxation, Meditation.
