So, I THOUGHT I was rid of my panic attacks and anxiety for a couple months until a few days ago where I had a panic attack and my anxiety has been playing tricks on my mind again. I have two exams coming up and a new course I will be taking but I am a little nervous about going because I do not want my anxiety getting in the way and causing me to fail. Does anyone else feel their anxiety gets the better of them and stops them from doing certain things?
I also wanted to share my experience with anxiety and the symptoms.
I have to say, all my symptoms have been different each time I get anxiety/panic attacks. Sometimes it is followed with depression and I get stuck in this sad mood.
Anyway, here are the symptoms I have experienced from anxiety;
Convinced myself I had heart problems.
Convinced myself I had a brain tumor.
Felt like my vision was blurry.
Felt like I was losing my hearing or my ears needed to pop or that they were blocked (even though I still could hear).
Felt like my lungs were failing and I was suffocating.
Headaches (almost every time).
Weird swaying sensation or like my body was pulling to one side when It wasn't.
Pains in my stomach.
Felt like I have schizophrenia or that I was going insane.
Felt like I had cancer.
Feel tired after a panic attack or when my anxiety crops up.
My chest would feel tight, as though someone was putting a rubber band around it and squeezing.
I had the same sensation in my head, where I felt a rubber band was squeezing my head.
I am sure there is many more but that's all I can think of currently. I hate anxiety more than anything because it isn't as simple as putting a bandaid on something visible, like a cut. It's mentally draining and takes a huge chunk of my day away, it's not visible for people to see unless I tell people and I don't. So I try to deal with it myself, which is difficult because you're alone in your head, where anxiety is your only friend and yet your worst enemy because it is making you feel like crap.
