Please someone tell me they understand!

I suffer with severe anxiety and other than the usual things that set it off (crowds arguments general worrying about bills etc being late.. and so on) sometimes, like now ill be sat here minding my own business when bam! Huge wave of nausea, hot and cold flashes rapid heart beat the need to escape! Honestly feel like I will die then and there!I lie here for ages trying to convince myself I'm fine but it can some times take hours for the symptoms to stop sad i have nothing in particular im worried about so why is this happening? Any advice greatly appreciated rolleyes smile

    Sounds like me!!! I'm trying to think it's partially perimenopause... Makes sense, I'm 44 but past month has been rough as it gets! Anxiety, anxiety, sick, lost 10lbs, today my appetite was better but not much

    Hope you feel better soon

    It can be triggered from sensory overload. You kind of are the last to know when this overload occurs sadly.Its not just from thoughts. Too much activity, sound, sight, any sensory there different doors into anxiety attacks. Crowds can do it at times. Bright lights in stores. A simple thunderstorm. All sensory.

    Sounds like depression.

    Make an appointment to see your GP next week and explain your problem. We all get depressed or anxious sometimes because life is so complex

    Keep a hold

    Hi corab,

    I don't know fully why this happens but I believe my anxiety that comes from nowhere comes from me having not dealt with certain issues that I may have not shared or recognised within myself.

    Recently I've had to focus on compassion for myself and I believe this part of me has been tiny within my brain, not looking after myself mentally, neglecting who I actually am. I wud consider myself to be lost . And finding myself again I don't mean travelling the world, starting new interests, I mean accepting myself, my flaws. Forgiving myself when I'm hard on myself, which I am a hell of a lot. I feel shame because I perceive myself to be weak socially, extremely self conscious. I wish it wud go and that everytime I spoke I didn't have to fill in a form with those very words and send it to be checked, only for it to come back and it say either yes or no (you can say this) it's tiring.
