Hi there.

YES!  That is a very typical symptom.  Have you checked out the health pages here....under "anxiety"?  You will find a symptom list a mile long...and forever growing.  Panic/anxiety causes very real physical symptoms....and they vary for everyone.

Plus, you have to remember that we are OVERLY aware of every little sensation we feel.  Things that a non-anxious person would never even notice would throw us into a "what iffing" frenzy.  Try to occupy your mind with other things...and try REAL hard not to focus on physical sensations as much as you can.  It takes a little bit of work...but it can be done.

Hang in there.....the more you read about others' experiences here...and read up on anxiety (ie..the health pages)...the more you'll realize that all of what you're experiencing is very typical for anxiety disorders.  It manages to make you feel better that it is indeed "normal" for people like us.  While a lot of the sensations can be scary....they are medically harmless.

Yeah, I get that sometimes. I hate it! I always think its my blood pressure too. My face feels really hot and gets flushed. And my ears turn sooooo red too. Well, if they say its anxiety... I guess it is. Along with every other stinkin' symptom in this hell ride of a disorder, lol.

Same here. My body gets hot when I have a anxiety/panic attack, i'm running out the door for air. I feel you on the whole death thing, it scares the hell out of me, the thought of not being here anymore creeps me out, don't like to even think about it.

i usually get the same thing...especially when its cold outside or after i eat, and i get headaches with it also. I completely understand you when you think about death. I also suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. It's something that's on my mind also but i'm getting better cuz i try to distract myself with other things and know that this is all in my head and i know that my thoughts can't hurt me. Just think that all these thoughts even though they can feel pretty intense, they are just thoughts..they cant hurt you. Hope you will feel better..

God I wish there was a cure for this anxious feeling. You all say it's anxiety as well as the doctors I've been to. But sure enough, we still feel that there is something wrong with us. I have 4 kids and 1 on the way. I really want to be there for them and their kids and so on. I was directed here through googling "my face is hot". Trying to distract myself with tv. I'm not at the point where I just want to end it. But now, I can understand what those people went through. I hate meds and have been living on .5 mg alprazolam (Xanax) as needed. I DON'T want to be dependent on this crap. Help!!
