Hello, i'm really in need of help. i'm an 18 year old male who has never had any health problems besides a few syncopes. after smoking weed a month ago (i have done it many times prior) i have been having extreme anxiety, and i mean extreme. after smoking i thought i had something stuck in my throat or windpipe, so i went to the emergency room and they said it was a panic attack. i never had one prior to that. after leaving the hospital i still felt anxious, and i still do today. the next 5 days after that i was in and out of the hospital with different symptoms each time, once with chest pain, another with throat pain, once where i thought i couldnt breathe. each time they said it was a panic attack. but i didn't believe it. how could i suddenly be getting panic attacks and how can they feel so real? i've also been getting acid reflux which ive never had before. a lot of times i feel like i get something stuck in my throat and it drives me crazy and i get panic attacks every time. i have physical symptoms 24/7 even when i think i'm not anxious. right now my throat feels tight and like i have something in it. but in reality, i swallowed a dry piece of cereal and it probably just scratched my esophagus. a week ago i started having an itchy, sticky feeling in one eye, went to the dr said it was allergic conjunctivitis, its still there and i've been thinking it has something to do with this lump on my eye that's been there for years. my mind is always racing and i constantly check my pulse. when im eating i fear that ill accidently inhale my food so i haven't been eating much. this is extremely ridiculous i know. i've never been like this before. it usually gets worse at night and i usually fall asleep at like 6 or 7 am from all the stress. my throat is hurting right now and im getting nervous. this seems like and endless cycle and i regret smoking that weed and i don't think i'll ever smoke again. any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
