    All the time Jen n I'm constantly telling myself to stop it n try n carry on with what o was doin. Anxiety is horrid n takes over every little thing it can.

    Got some good advice today, just laugh in its face n occupy yourself with something to divert ur thinking......I'll be giving it a try as like u I over think every little thing at the min and I'm annoying myself now x

    Yes. All the time. Awful and very frustrating. Do any of you have the shortness of breath with your anxiety? That is the absolute worst part  of it for me. Been advised to try the breathing technique...easier said than done. Being  anxious stops you being able to focus on anything but the anxiety!!🙆the more I concentrate on the breathing the harder it seems to be.  The good old vicious circle!

      How long have you been on the meds Cristina? Ive been prescribed them and can't bring myself to take them because of the chance of side effects! (clutching head here with frustration at myself) it seems symptoms can be worse before they get better. Even knowing that doesnt help. Lots of people do improve with time. Thanks for response. Much appreciated. X

      same for me my anxiety causes me the sensation of restricted breathing/breathlessness and muscle tension in my back 24/7,just finished week 1 of citalopram and i actually had a few good hours this week!

      If you have anxiety, it's also possible to have shortness of breath even when you're not feeling anxious. That's because anxiety can alter the way you breathe, and cause hyperventilation without any triggers.
