Tired of feeling like I'm dying.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Can someone please give me some advice. I haven't felt good these past few days and I'm convinced I'm dying. I feel like I have no one to talk to about my anxiety. Today I've been feeling like my throat is closing up, I feel like it's hard to catch my breath, and it feels like something heavy is sitting on my chest. It feels like I'm not getting enough air. I'm extremely tired, and my body aches. It's driving me crazy. I was just at the doctor the other day for headaches, and everything seemed fine. I'm tired of worrying every second if this is the last day I'm going to be alive. Does anyone else have these symptoms? If so can you tell me what yours are, and hope you cope with it? I don't know what else to do.

    It sounds like health anxiety. I had it. Tell you're doctor. If there not sympathetic, see another. Exercise, avoid caffeine and alcohol. Going for a quick run dId me the world of good. Hope this helps. Don't suffer alone.

    I have health anxiety, at times it is quite severe. I have experienced all of these symptoms before, often for extended periods of time. Anxiety can make you believe that anything is happening to you. Not only believe it, but actually feel it too. Find somebody to talk to about anxiety, even if it is an online/over the phone helpline. It could be really beneficial for you. You're going to be okay, just hold on.

    I suggest getting yourself some sort of medication to deal with your anxiety, as well as a therapist to talk about your issues with. My father and I both have health anxiety, although his is a lot more severe then mine. Counsoling and medications can help wonders. 888- 826-9438 this is a suicide/major panic support line if you really feel like you are dying and you desperatly need to talk to somebody. I hope you feel better soon.
