what physical feelings of anxiety do you get?
hey there, what physical symptoms of anxiety do you experience?
I often feel very alone in my experience of having physical chest (what I think are heart) spasms and was wanting to create a space for everyone to list their physical feelings that come hand in hand with anxiety so we can all feel less alone.
hope everyone is well.
Ive had 2 really good days and now out of the blue it’s back. Went out to shops and was fine before I left and then on the way home headache kicks in , pain around chest area , nausea and lump in throat. Now got to stop my mind from looping all over the place . I have terrible O.C.D
yes I can relate to what you are saying as I to do not really understand where all my anxiety is coming from at this time in my life. I did have anxiety in my younger years but at 56 I feel like I’m at a good place in life so not sure where this is all coming from. I have had mri and heart checks and all is fine but I still get these awful fluttering feelings in heart , nauseous, headaches. Of course this sends my mind into a loop and I start thinking the worst. It’s awful when it comes on because it just seems to come from nowhere. Sending you hugs.
On the way home on the train after the session I started fidgeting, my breathing became shallow, chest pains, my heart rate increased and I had that all too familiar impending doom feeling. It's all consuming and I just sat there waiting until the last stop. Got close to home and was totally fine. No matter how many times the pattern happens it still affects me.
Very frustrating. Even worse is when I go through phases of bad dizziness and chest pains and go to the supermarket. My heart pounds and I just want to get the heck out of there ASAP.
Horrible stomach like cramps that makes me feel bloated and nauseating chest pains.
once i start experiencing these it gets to my head then the full blown irritated mood breaks out. something i really want to control and stop from happening cause i end up taking it out on those around. then my mind starts to really wonder out and overthinks everything. questioning everything and asking myself what if .......
Does anyone else find the mornings the hardest? If so, what do you find works to stop the panic feeling or at least ease it a bit?
