I'm wondering if someone can either tell me I'm over reacting or confirm that something is wrong and I need to seek help.
Recently I have suffered with really bad anxiety and one of the symptoms I have is difficulty in exhaling and taking deep breaths. My chest sometimes feels tight and my heart races (probably because I start over thinking something bad is going to happen).
I did post in here recently and I was given breathing techniques to try (which I have done). However as it happens often how do I know if it's being caused by my anxiety or to do with asthma? I'm not convinced I actually have asthma as apparently there's no clear tests to determine and therefore I'm scared to use the inhaler I've been given encase it does more harm than good.
Also on a regular basis, I feel shaky, sick and light headed.
Again how do I know if these are symptoms of anxiety or diabetes? I've never been tested for diabetes as my gp said that because I don't eat often they can't test me - is that true?
What would happen if it is diabetes and I don't know and this continues to happen!
I am trying to eat regularly and when I have these symptoms i try have a banana or some skittles or fruit juice to see if that helps.
I just wish I could get the all clear on these symptoms.
Sorry for the long story and thanks in advance for any advice x
