So today I have had a really bad day for Anxiety.
Basically all day I have been unable to catch a full decent breath, it's like my chest is to tight and I just can't get a satisfactory deep breath. No other symptoms that normally accompany a panic attack, just unable to breath properly. Nothing has calmed me down, camomile tea, Propranolol, passionflower. It's left me quite shaky. I know it's Anxiety, buts been so physically out of control in work. Throughout all my anxiety journey, breathing has never been an issue. I normally get shakes, tremors and dizziness / high heart rate.
I have also had really bad congestion problems for months with anxiety, sinuses are constantly blocked and I am constantly coughing up phelgm. Even now I can feel how congested my throat and ears feel. It's made sleeping hell / causing constant head pressure and dizziness.
I am worrying that this phelgm is actually what's causing the physical obstruction and not actually just Anxiety alone but I have no idea how to tackle this. Also think I have another infection (4th one in 6 months) due to this constant build up of phelgm on my chest (seeing an ENT for it),.
Can anyone advise please?
I really don't want to try these Sertraline tablets but starting to think I need something to calm my body down
