    Yes I get this all the time! It's really weird and can be a little alarming but it won't hurt you! And usually it's caused by your body calming down after you've had an anxiety attack as it's realizing there is no danger so it's a bit in shock. But anyway what really helps is to ground yourself and drinking eater. I hope this helps, I've been suffering from anxiety attacks for a few years now so I know where you're coming from

      Yes, I do. I mean, I've had this since before I developed GAD. I've always had a bit more anxiety than usual, but didn't really have the random panic attacks, like I do now... I have always gotten these feelings of deja vu.
