I've had an uptick in my physical anxiety symptoms over the course of the last six or so weeks (dizziness/off-balance sensation, muscle tension, headaches, difficulty concentrating, feeling as though my heart is racing when it really isn't) and find myself compulsively "scanning" my body to ascertain how it's feeling, including checking my pulse compulsively....this begins shortly after I awaken every morning and continues throughout the day....what's odd is that when I wake during the night, I generally feel fine....but as soon as it's morning and time to get out of bed, I can feel the symptoms coming on and then it's off to the races (that's my attempt at an adrenaline joke)...anyone else in this predicament?
I know that thinking about these symptoms only makes them worse, but it's almost as though I can't stop....I've got two Claire Weekes books on tape which I listen to regularly, and she makes so much sense, but I can't seem to internalize the message....thoughts? Advice?
