Anxiety can manifest itself in many different way including some really uncommon physical symptoms. It is very common for those who suffer from anxiety to think they are suffering from some serious medical condition, but in fact it is really just your mind thinking that there is something wrong and the more you dwell on it the more pronounced the physical symptoms become. It is an ugly cycle and it gets worse and worse and you feel completely helpless to make it stop. I know it *****, but what needs to happen is for you to start identifying what triggers or situations are occurring right before you begin to start feeling out of control. In my case if for instance I get a sharp pain up the left side of my body I instantly think omg whats going on whats wrong with me... then i start panicking and my heart races and then i think i am having a heart attack, then i cant breath, then i cant see... its a viscous cycle that is in fact the exact definition of what a panic attack is. Hope I helped and if you would like to talk more I'm on here every day :)
Thank you for your post and support it made me fell great just now cause I just had a panic attack -_-
I was always the one who laughed at people about stress and anxiety because i use to be like "Oh its all in your head, get over it"
Now I have it really bad and with that comes crazy hearth racing, room pacing Panic Attacks!
Another day and I'm still alive!
Go to the doctor. Unexplained weight loss (assuming you're eating enough) is not a good thing. It could be anxiety, but it could also be something else, and it'd be wise to get it checked out.
Yea, I have a appointment Friday, ill let you guys know what the doctor says!
he man I have exactly the same problem... I always check my heartrate and i have the fluttering feeling (except it's on the right side) my chest cramps on the left side.... i have been feeling like ive been getting skinnier, but i haven't lost any weight at all... the weird thing is that ive actually gained a few pounds....oh and have you noticed that your veins seem to get really thin when you get nervous or anything??? cuz i usually have noticable veins and then when i get nervous i look at them and they are abnormally thin.... it's weird... i guess i can only notice it because i have big veins to start out with.... let me know how your visit to the doc goes...
Yea I'm gonna visit him tomorrow, is there a way i can get a hold of you to chat like msn or something, maybe make a new email so know one knows who you are and my veins are popping up everywhere, places i couldn't see them before now there bulging like mad in head and, arms, legs, thighs.....
Sorry for double post but i sent you a PM Kevin222
I missed the doctors appointment and have to schedule a new one! This *****!
OK, so i havent seen the doctor yet but i still have neck and arm pain with numbness also in head and legs and my left side hurts when i breath in and my chest still gurgles on the left side!
Doctor tommorrow at 2:30... better go good!
Sounds like anxiety, but I am going through the same kind of thing. I feel like i have chest pain and pulsating.. the pulsating is real.. like that feeling of your stomach groaning from hunger constantly even when your full. I also think it is my heart at times but have to remind myself it is my abdomen area. The panic attacks ***** if you get them. It is like a pyramid of problems that are impossible to stop if you cannot find the trigger and get rid of it before it spins too far out of control. I feel like during some panic attacks I could have a seizure and like swallow my tongue or have some kind of fainting resulting in injury or permanent brain damage. I hope you see a good doctor and be very precise with how you feel.. take a journal even of mental notes you make and want the doctor to be aware of.
