My anxiety has taken many forms over the last 5 months and has really peaked for the last 3-4 weeks, for what feels like no/little reason. I am not a very emotional person and originally felt like I could handle alot of issues/ problems that other people might not be able to as I am a very happy and outgoing person. However, I have had many many symptons of anxiety and it appears as soon as I get over one sympton, another one will take effect. Extreme symptons include loss of circulation whilst sleeping - often I have woken up with my hands or legs feeling completely numb and even in twisted positions. I have felt dizzy and confused and out of touch with reality alot. I can have a panic attack at just hearing about a illness that is life threatening. I fixate on my health and whether I have a new health issues, especially mental health. I have panic attacks if I feel the tiniest bit nauseous, as I can't deal with the thought of putting my health in danger... despite wanting to lead a "normal" 20 year old life style. I.e. when I feel non-anxious (which isn't often) I'll still love to go out and drink etc, but will have awful consequences of anxiety afterwards. A new sympton for today has been "flittering eyes", I feel like it is harder to concerntrate/ see as clear as my eye sight is slightly shakey when I get nervous and its almost like the lighting is too bright for my eyes to cope with. I am so bored of not feeling normal, that I just want a quick fix. I feel like I am in the mind set to be resilient against anxiety issues, however physical symptons are over bearing? Is there anyone who has "gotten" over their anxiety once and for all, and how? I feel like there isn't any reason for me to be anxious, but I just keep finding new ways to scare myself.
