Anxiety symptoms ???

I have pretty bad anxiety nearly everyday, I was diagnosed by a doctor last year but I've always really had it since I was a kid. So basically I have anxiety nearly everyday some days better than others, but the past three days I've had a a feeling of a swollen neck and my ears are also effected I can't seem to find any swollen glands but I've a little pain on my right side right under my jaw if I press down on it hard enough I also feel my throat closing in. I have no sore throat or anything but feel my glands are swollen I'm really worried, is this anxiety or something more serious

Hey there,

Anxiety can cause us to over examine our bodies to the point to where we will eventually find something wrong with us.

You could simply have a little and your anxiety is kicking in.

I'm actually going through the same thing now. I have a fever, but My anxiety is telling me it's something way worse and more serious.

Try to not over examine yourself and stay busy. I never thought I'd be saying this, but try some hot tea, soup, etc.

Are you doing anything to address your anxiety?

Yes I over examine myself so much, but can anxiety itself cause your body to do this? I've never taken any meds not that I don't believe in them I just think for my own self I can over come this myself
