So about 6 months ago I have a really bad bout of anxiety / panic attacks. Literally every test came back fine, as horrible as it was at the time. I had to accept / understand it was Anxiety driving all the physical symptoms and have been working through my issues.
I have been a lot better lately in myself. I have gotten back into work, getting on with my days a bit better but I am starting to struggle again.
Every morning I wake up with horrible tension headaches still, jaw pain and sore legs from shaking my legs all night in my sleep (I am not aware I am doing it but my partner keeps pointing it out).
The only way I can describe it is that I just feel shaky all day - just not right if that makes sense. Sometimes I have very visible hand shakes (which makes me panic more - bloods / glucose levels fine). I also get occasional dizziness and disorientation, racing heart for no reason but by far the worst is the tiredness. I can sleep for 8 hours and within 30 minutes of getting up / to work, it just feels like I really need to sleep again and I can't stop yawning!. I am only 25 and otherwise pretty healthy.
This anxiety thing is horrible. Currently not medicating for it, but starting to think I need something to calm my body down.
Anyone else experiencing something similar?
