Recently in the past few months my anxiety has increaed dramatically, to the point where I've had to have time off sixth form and work. The part of anxiety I find the hardest though is the pains I get from it and I am finding it hard to cope.
I can get numbness anywhere around my body, stomach pains, acid reflux, nausea, chest pains and headaches. Even though I don't feel anxious most of the time I still get these symptoms, and it's getting to the point where I'm worried its more than just anxiety. The worst pain of all is the chest pains, because it's the scariest and most painful of all the pains.
I know in my mind that it's most likely going to be the anxiety, as I'm not overweight, I eat healthy, and I regularly do physical activity, but I'm getting to the point where it's affecting my life and dictating what iI do, whether I go out, whether I even want to get up in the mornings.
If anyone has any sort of advice or coping mechanisms for this I would appreciate it a lot
Thank you very much, even if you just read this and find my experience relatable
