Are your anxiety symptoms random?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Bit wierd really, i've 100% got anxiety and have a lot of the symtoms that come with it like chest pain, dizziness, excessive sweating etc. But sometimes i find these symptoms will come on on days im not even anxious, then on days I am anxious, the symptoms aren't there. Like today im in a really stressful situation just lately but my symptoms aren't as bad as what they were 3-4 weeks ago before this stressful situation started? 

Just wondering if anyones is kind of the same, anxiety symptoms come on at random rather than just when im anxious

    I'm the same! Like now I feel dizzy and stuff but I have no reason to be anxious. I think the random anxiety symptoms are what annoy me the most; I get frustrated but I'm not/shouldn't be anxious. Then sometimes (not very often) I'll be in an anxious situation where my mind is going crazy and I'm anticipating the symptoms but then nothing really happens. So yeah, you're not alone! My therapist said that it's linked to our arousal - whether we're hyperaroused (freaking out, dizzy, nausea etc) or hypoaroused/under aroused (anxious, but kind of like detached from the world).

      Ah glad i'm not alone! Theres been times where a stressful situation has caused symptoms, like one time i went to Rome with the missus, we got lost in a run down area of it and we was argueing like mad, didnt get in till 1 in the morning when we eventually found a taxi, very stressful! Woke up with the room just constantly spinning, chest pains, sweats, really bad. But thats a good explanation from your therapist, right now im kind of detached from the world anxious, i tend to get most of my symptoms when i come back down again when i stop worrying as much, then my symptoms hit. But right now im at the peak of my anxiety, ive got health anxiety and im waiting to see a specialist for something so at the minute im worrying like crazy but not much anxiety symptoms.

    First of all your already convienced you have anxiety. When we say we have something we claim it. Our words are very powerful GYDA. What you say with your mouth goes into your subconscious and then tells your body it's real.

    I would begin telling yourself outloud I DONT HAVE ANXIETY! also anxiety and panic although spoken in the same context are really two different things. Anxiety is when something is in front of you and you see it happening but have no control over the situation. Panic is in the mind ( It see's danger and feels danger or impending doom) Anxiety will bring on panic attacks. Which is what it sounds like your dealing with. So if you are in good health or have had a physical or blood work or ekg anything that has shown your fine health wise then you know this is for sure in your mind not your body. When you feel these symptoms begin by breathing. Put your hand on your tummy take in 5 deep breaths and hold each one for a count of 8 or 10 then exhale. This will releae oxygen and center you. I always suggest putting on music and singing outloud as well. When we talk outloud our mind can't Body Scan which is a term very well known in panic attacks. When we are alone with our thoughts they can tell our body to feel all kinds of things. This is false information being fed to your subconscious. It's a lie your body is believing. I hope this helps and many Blessings your gonna be fine
