i don't know what is this help!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Like 2-3 days ago i started feeling this weird thing happening, im originaly a health anxiety sufferer. I feel like the right side of my throat (front neck) where the artery is like its swelling(its not in the mirror or to my family) or someone is pulling that part up to under my ear or there is a twitch or a stronger heartbeat. I don't know if i pulled that muscle cuz mainly i feel like pulling sensation or there is something wrong, could it be my anxiety cuz when im working or doing something to keep my self busy i totally don't feel it

Im not sure if what im saying makes any sense i searched but nothing with this symptom. im not sure if this is just another anxiety trick on my muscles

    Well i know what you mean. not the exact thing but with me it is like a pulled a muscle in my chest or i get like nervous cuz i am a bit short of breath. After a while i convince myself  all of these different things are just in my head and i surround myself in situations where i am with loved ones and friends and where it is fun and we have things to do to keep my mind sidetracked.... It also helps doing that because i have HUGE case of all around anxiety. Sometimes my anxiaty is so bad and i am so out of comition i feel like i am on bed rest. same as after a panic attack. i feel every ounce of energy is drained rite out of me. some days i feel like crap without having an anxiety attack so i just take a not too hot or cold but cool shower and it makes me feel better and brightens me up a little. I get my anxiety though as something i can't say is a thing that goes away after a few months lol. my mom,sister,grandmother, all have it and my great grandmother had it. So it is inevitable for me lol. If you have a significant other. have them help you take your mind off of it. When you start to worry grab a book or watch a good movie. Or if u r like me and if that sometimes does not work grab some tunes lol. cool STAY CHILL

      Just like me my mom had it my sister have it and my grandmother also have it. And i do that as well i keep my self distracted with work im a kg 1 teacher and im a student too i stay out alll day and try to come home exhausted to sleep the night but my day seem tasteless thats whats bothering me.

      whats funny is that i was in class like 15 mins ago and i totally forgot about that thing in my neck and it didn't even bother me but when i remember it then i start feeling it its insane.

      But whatever it im 21 im gonna do everything i can to just live my life and get out of this hell.

    When my anxiety was really bad I got this and it ran from my neck to my chest I felt top of my chest and could feel it pulling I would get my breath took away by it most of the time I went to hospital and doctors and they did not have a clue what I was on about and I had to deal with it for months because I would focus on it so much finally I started to take my mind off it slowly and it has gone xx

      It first started when I was really depressed and really anxiouse because nobody understood me I think that made it worse so it did just happening randomly to be honest I don't think I had a trigger to it but I had to teach myself to remember it was anxiety in a way I wish you had posted this back when it first started for me because I had never heard of anybody else having it before xx

      Yes i feel like nothing would make me smile i can't get excited about anything no matter what it is. I also have this feeling of kinda sleepy but not really its like im not really aware to whats around me did u ever have that? What's keeping me strong honestly is my religious beliefs. But still its a big struggle i just wanna snap out of it

      Noooo im not and im not planning too any time soon i know far more ppl who got better and got thier life back without meds more then the ones with

      meds can help with physical symptoms but not your behaviour
