yes, i had this two weeks ago!! I ran out and bought icy hot. I thougt for sure something horrible was happening to me. It went away. But now im dealing with heart palpitations, scary!! Feels like i loose my breath for a few seconds..

Ive never experienced heart palpitations and i hope i never do. My anxiety is so bad though i could swear im dying. But these aches and pains dont seem to go away my neck tenses up and is stiff then when i relax it aches like almost sore like and when i point my chin down it travels to my chest and it hurts it makes me feel sick.

Both of my parents had Anxiety and panic attacks, I was told that it could be genetics... what do you all think?

hi i def think its hereditary although i also think life experience contributes but my lil sister has also just been diagnosed which is quite coincidental shes still in the denial stage tho you know were you're convinced it aint anxiety but a massive health problem im sure she'll be fine but yes i do agree its definitely something you're born with as i've always been a nervous child (jesus i used to scream when it would rain heavy aha!) i guess i was born to be this way i just dont get it though !

i was a nervous child too! I watch too many ppl die and have been to way too many funerals and viewings! So it has affected me deeply. My anxiety and panic attacks are almost always triggered by serious health issues and dying... If i could give anybody any advice, "DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR KIDS TO DEATH & DYING!!" Everyone can not handle that.
