Hi all, first time poster here

Hi all, just joined this forum and thought I'd post a few questions to see if anyone could help!

I'm a 23 year old guy who has suffered from anxiety for a few years now on and off, it just seems to flare up when I worry about something ! When I'm not worry and relaxed in totally normal! It's just seems to be a flick of a switch that goes on in your brain! I don't take any medication but I did go see a herbilast doctor who gave me a tonic which did help at first but I'm about to start a new job in 6 weeks and the anxiety has come back! The symptoms I get are dry mouth, loss off appetite, tight chest sometimes and feeling sick and restless! I've never suffered a bad panic attack where I've felt I was going to die! Don't know if any of you can give me any advice?

    Hi Scott, I'm probably not the right person to be giving advice at the moment as I'm just overcoming a stressful anxiety attack. However, I'd like to congratulate you on your new job. Try and look at everything about starting it very positively. Relax as much as you can, doing things you enjoy leading up to it and maybe look into a herbal remedy to help you again. Just remember too that it's ok to have first day nerves, I'm sure everyone does in new situations.

    I'm sure someone will help you more than I have.

    Best of luck x

    Can I recommend Mindfulness. Google it. It is a system recognised by NHS services dealing with

    anxiety and stress based on meditation. I have found it very helpful.

    You're bound to be anxious about starting a new job. Everyone is. Good luck!

    Hi Scott,

    Is your anxiety something that happens occasionally or does it occur every day? Is there something that could be triggering you anxiety? I.e certain situations or particular conversations or certain people? Might be good for you to find out what is causing your anxiety, to help you understand and treat it.
