    Totally normal for an anxiety sufferer, I'm the same, once u get used to one set of symptoms more come and punch u in the stomach and you don't know what you're doing or where you're going... It's awful... I breath in for 3 seconds and breath out for 3 seconds and when I feel like I'm about to collapse or am dizzy I pinch my leg and it brings me right back to earth... I'm so sorry you feel like this =/ this is something that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy and I really hope u get the help u need.. also just a tip, counselling is amazing, having a good cry can really help ..

    I'll tell you my anxiety symptoms maybe it'll help. Blurred vision, headache, nausea, chest tightening, heart palpitations, gagging, shortness of breathe, speeding heart, feels like I'm gonna stop breathing, vibration in my head and face, tingly feeling all over, chest pain. You name it, I got it! It is absolutely horrible. Just when you think you finally got anxiety under control and get used to the symptoms new ones come!
