I am new to this forum stuff so bear with me, I just thought it would be good to join and speak to people who are going through the same stuff as me, as although I know lots of people suffer with anxiety in the uk, nobody talks about it and I am starting to feel like a freak with some sort of mental health problem!!
I'm hoping by talking with you guys I will feel normal again and reassured that my symptoms are in act from anxiety and are not something more sinister!
I just wondered if anybody else feels physical symptoms as a result of their anxiety..
I am a normal, confident 23 year girl who doesn't suffer with social anxiety (although I'm afraid it's heading that way!) with a good job, and a supportive boyfriend and lots of prospective so I really feel as though I'm almost being ungrateful of my life by being anxious and ruining it all the time!
I started off experiencing dizziness and blurred vision
This seemed to set my health related anxiety off!
It's now expanded to heart palpiltations, chest pains, shortness of breath, tinnitus, dizziness, double vision, a feeling as though somebody is putting pressure on my throat, waking up in the night panicking that my legs and arms have gone numb, loss of dexerity in my fingers, my arms heavy and numb during the daytime too recently!
I eat extremely well, I don't exercise enough but I don't drink or smoke, so I should be healthy!!
If I hear a symptom a few days later I get it! Very frustrating as I am not a stupid person but I seem to be acting stupid, it's very hard for people to understand too because I have a physical illness that is anxiety.. Wierd.
Please please please could anybody tell me if they experience these symptoms or anything similar, I am 90% sure it is just my anxiety but I don't want to miss anything nasty!
Thank you and I'm sorry I have rambled!
Have a lovely healthy day everybody
