Anxiety, panic, worry, am i dying?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi i suffered really badly with panic attacks and anxiety about 2 years ago and after some time got it all under control. Recently i have been diagnosed with a hiatus hernia which is causing me alot of chest pain and other symptoms, this in turn is now making me worry its something more and those old feelings have come creeping back in that i feel like im dying, i feel like i have no control over anything i'm doing, i feel dizzy, disorientated, getting pins and needles and like i just have to get out or up from what i am doing, I am so scared i'm trying to tell myself this is just anxiety and i have dealt with it before but it feels alot worse this time, I don't know what to do sad

      That is very true! a good way to look at it, yeah i remember pushing myself to go for walks when i suffered before they definitely help smile it's so easy when having an attack to think the worst and so difficult to then try reason with yourself. I don't currently take anything now no, i would like to try something to atleast try and keep the feelings away x
