Ive been suffering wih anxiety for 2 months now. In the week I started uni i had my first panic attack- it was awful, thought i was going to die. After that I became obssessed with looking at symptoms and thought i had heart failure coz of the chest pains/tightness. I had pains in my left arm along with my chest pain so thought i was gonna have a heart attack. I got better after a few weeks but then during a group anxiety session we were told about the symptoms of a heart attack which included "pain in neck and jaw". Soon after i had read that i started feeling pain/tension in those areas and i went back to panicking.
This is so awful. I feel like anything i read, my body starts copying it.
Now i feel my throat closing up which causes my body to panic as much as i try not to think about it. The area under my tongue is soo tense and causes my jaw to ache. Has anyone felt anything like that before?
Is there any quick relief strategies anyone know about that have been really helpful. I want to get rid of this so badly. I just want to be the way I was before and feel I can never be happy as Im always thinking about what my body is going to do to me next.
Any advice would be greatfully recieved.
