Terrified , weird feelings all over my body

Posted , 5 users are following.

A few weeks ago and last night I experienced something totally weird , my whole body felt tingly , pins and needles all over them all of a sudden my lips felt strange side of my face was tingling I went into complete panic thought I was having a stroke , then I thought I was having an epileptic fit which just lead from one thing to another , I feel like I'm walking round in a daze and I'm constantly anxious about being ill and having something wrong with me, I'm terrified. Are these symptoms normal for anxiety especially the facial symptoms as I'm sat here now my lips are tingling and one said of my face feels tingly 😫😩😫. Don't want to feel like this anymore.

    Im lead to believe that it can be down to the adrenaline that is being over produced being anxious. Its a vicious circle, you over produce it by getting anxious then, produce more cause you worry about the sensation.

    are you on any meds?

    Hi Natalie. .it's a common anxiety symptoms you shouldn't give it too much thought as it will further worsen the whole thing..just take it as it is and try not to over think and exaggerate it cause we have the tendency to do that with anxiety..I'm pretty sure you're for and fine..if you're engross in doing something,do you get the feelings?

      That proves it's anxiety. .try to occupy..maybe when you'reach in bed try to get something to occupy your mind before going to bed like story book or playing games on your phone..

    Very normal Natalie, please don't worry about them. It is all part of this. It will get better. All your excitatory transmitters get out of wack for a bit, adrenaline, cortisol, glutamate .....

    You have to get this in your head; it won't kill you! It's all part of Anxiety and unfortunately things get worse before they get better! But remember, you always have to let your doctor know everything. I'm no doctor, I can only comment on this because I had and sometimes still have the same this.

    I went through all the tingling, butterfly's in the chest, fear...... Actually going through it as I write this. I still in the early stages of recovery. But I was feeling completely normal a week ago until my Celexa was switched to a different manufacturer. I have been on Celexa for 7 weeks and until the switch was feeling GREAT!!!! Celexa usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks to start working. Could be less, could be a little more.

    God Bless!!!
