I've been suffering from anxiety since February. Had every physical symptom you could possibly imagine. Currently my main symptoms are back at the base of my neck on the right side below the base of my skull, chest heaviness, tingling fingers and lip, feeling detatched and spaced out a lot, especially in the evenings, fatigue, and the worst is a strange sensation at the back of my throat which makes me want to click my tongue/palette and sometimes feels like my throat is going to close. I also have an akomost constant sense of impending doom and am convinced that my death is imminent.
I was signed off for three weeks at work and have now been back for two weeks but on reduced hours. Work have now told me if I carry on doing reduced hours they will have to reduce my salary.
I've stopped enjoying everything. Don't really even want to go out and when I do I'm constantly conscious of my physical symptoms and it just stops me having fun. I'm too scared to even walk to the shops on my own and don't even want to spend much time with my boyfriend anymore cos I feel so bad and don't want to bring him down but avoiding him brings him down anyway.
Work is so draining and I really am convinced I'm going to die. I'm struggling to see a way up from here and can't see a future for myself :-( even the thought of going on holiday terrifies me. I just don't know what to do any more :-(
