I have suffered with mini panic attacks for eyes every now and then. But since having kids 2 and a half years ago it seems my anxiety has got worse. I kinda diagnosed myself I know I should see my doctor but just want your opinions. When I used to go in the car (as a passinger) if we were going somewhere quite far I used to get really anxious. Think I couldn't breathe and panic. Would keep thinking where's my nearest hospital if anything happens or will an ambalance be able to reach me here on the motorway quick enough. All thoughts like that would run through my head, but once I arrived at my destination I was fine. Going on the tube would also cause these kind of thoughts and feelings. I would have the odd panic attack at home and get over it. Then about a month ago I had a massive panic attack the worst I've had so far in a restaurant. It soon passed when I arrived home. But since then I haven't been the same, I started suffering the physical symptoms of anxiety all the time. The breathlessness, aches and pains, fatigue and cloudy head. I went through a phase of the depersonalisation. It was horrible! I then started taking Kalms tablets (herbal) and I started feeling better and the symptoms have subsided more. I still get worrying thoughts throughout the day (like if I go in a lift I worry it will break down and the alarm with not work and I will be stuck.)and feel tired sometimes and get the odd symptoms. The days differ. But would you think this is indeed anxiety? As i haven't been professionally diagnosed. Sorry for such a long post!
