i have a very similar "cant handle stress" problem---i feel a constant nervousness, as if i am about to take a test any minute. the problem is that i also am incredibly fatigued and low energy. is that similar to how you felt, or were you more filled with lots of energy?
which herbs were you recommended initially?
one of the herbs in my liquid mixture that my chinese medicine doctor has me on is licorice root too, and ive been feeling more nervous on it. i think that she is trying to give me energy, but the problem is that i need something to calm my nervous system, not stimulate it.
