    No that's nonsense. Anxiety symptoms are ever changing like the condition itself. Whoever said that to you really has no idea what they are talking about

    I think the signs and symptoms change over time, and sort of reflect how you are or the situation your in (or even the medication you're taking to assist with things). Anxiety is a social-based condition, and 'the social' changes all the time. So, I'd guess that anxiety can too. I know that the anxiety I feel changes.

    I too have anxiety and there are anxieties that add to existing ones, it's not like feeling a bit like butterflies in the stomach it's a physical thing too. People who don't have it don't know how crippling it is.

    That's completely wrong victoria. Anxiety symptoms always change. Like if you read something on internet related to a disease you fear, you will start getting those symptoms. And once you overcome them, you will be hit with some other symptom telling you that something is wrong.
