Last year I had my first ever anxiety/panic attack... Out of the blue I was driving to work and all of a sudden... Chest and left arm pain, I thought what anyone would think... Heart attack, pulled over and stumbled out of my car with blurred vision and a racing heart, terrifying experience!
For the next 5 days I was kept in hospital and had test after test! I don't think theres a single part of me that hasn't been tested! There was nothing they could find and I was discharged as healthy and perfectly fine.
My head told me and continues to tell me differently, every ache, pain, twinge, flutter I think I'm about to drop dead... The crazy thing is I'm a 22 year old male personal trainer and have spent the last 6 years of my life eating the cleanest foods and exercising daily, I often wonder with all the people abusing their bodies... Why me!?
Ive had so much time off work its affecting my business, I get blurry eyes on daily basis followed my muscle spasms in random places and high cortisol like feelings of running on pure adrenaline (shaking, trembling, agitated)
I often feel my pulse in my neck throughout the day to check weather it's beating correctly or not, it's ridiculous!
The only relief I have found is from taking phosphatidyl serine, it's an extract from soy which has been proven to lower cortisol and it works!
I took it today for the first time after having an awful day of anxiety and within 20 mins my adrenaline feeling had gone!
Obviously it's not a cure but it's a crutch to help you along the way.
The other thing I find helps with the blurred vision is pulling with moderate pressure on the hair on your head, you have a sheath or layer of muscle running over the skull which will tighten when stressed causing headaches and blurred vision, make sure you grab it by a clump and just pull with slight pressure for a few seconds all over the head.
It provided me some relief so I hope it can to you too.
I'd love to hear other peoples symptoms as this definitely puts me at ease as I haven't been feeling great lately.
