My anxiety comes and goes

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi

I've had GAD for 4 months now, I'm basically wondering wether anyone else finds there anxiety comes and goes? For example right now I feel fine but then all of a sudden it comes on full force without any warning?

I now argue with myself wether I actually have anxiety or not because right now I feel ok.

      I don't worry something really wrong with me? I'm sorry you do!

      I get like this when I know I have to do something like go out to the shops or meet with friends sad

      Yeah I had a fast rapid heart beat and palpitations I'm on tablets now which have really helped it as I went to hospital four times cos of it but everything was normal, it's hard to get your head round that anxiety can cause all these symptoms, I started with it about a month ago just came out of blue, what other symptoms do you get

      Also some situations I can do but some I can't. For example I could go get a coffee and I'm fine but the next day I could do exactly the same and be a mess and panic
