Can't stand anxiety anymore!!

Hey, I'm 22 and a guy.

I've had problems with anxiety since I was 16/17. It's gotten to the point where I just can't stand it anymore.

Basically, I worry about everything. That's completely everything. As soon as I wake up, I feel on edge, it feels like my heart is racing or my heart is going to jump out of my chest, I feel like I'll start shaking, or I'll be sick. I feel constantly light headed too.

I've been late for work once. I'll wake up about 8am, and might not have work until midday, but I'll be panicking already. I just panic about everything.

I feel light headed, and it gets worse. I keep worrying I have a brain tumour or something. I have "visual snow" in my eyes too which is apparently due to anxiety. It gets worse the more I worry.

The only times I ever feel calm, is late at night, like after 9/10pm, and recently when I was abroad on holiday. I still worry, but it it's like only there a little bit. I think I don't worry as much at night because there are less people around, and because I know the day is almost over and it's like I've survived a day without a panic attack.

I've gone to the Doctor numerous amounts of times, no help. They told me to get in touch with a local mental health organisation. That was in May. I'm still on their waiting list.

I just want it gone. I want to be me again! :( HELP!! please x

Buddy I feel your pain. For the past 4 months I've had symptoms of a heart attack or some type of heart problem like left arm pain, jaw pain, pain in my back behind where my heart is, overall weakness and just feeling like my blood sugar has bottomed out or something. It is driving me crazy as well because I don't know if anxiety is causing it or if I have something seriously wrong with me. I am 26 years old so I know it's pretty unlikely that I have some type of heart disease or cancer or something but I have honestly felt like death for the past few months. I have panic attacks every few days and mini panic attacks daily. If you need someone to talk to feel free to message me. Sometimes it helps to talk to people experiencing similar symptoms. Hang in there!
