    I'm 48 and experience these also. Everyone keeps saying it will pass. I guess all we can do is try to eat right and try and get enough sleep. Wish I was more help.

    Sorry to hear of your grief Elizabeth, I lost my mum in January this year and the symptoms I've had since then has been horrendous.

    I know it's easier said than done but try not to focus on the sensations your getting, they're uncomfortable and sometimes scary but they are not important, tell yourself it's the grief and the other stress being ill has put on your body that's keeping the symptoms there, don't let them dictate your day, try and carry on doing what your doing even with the symptoms that should lessen the fear of them when you know you can cope

    I hope this passes soon for you let us know how your getting on

    Xx
