Visiting these blogs is great therapy for all anxiety sufferers!!
I survived a terrible divorce, a vengeful ex husband and his equally vicious wife. I have never had a health problem, am fit, eat right. Until the first anxiety attack came one night at 4 am. A one night stay in the cardiac unit. I was fine but had no idea what was happening. I contiuned to have these "symptoms", tightness in chest, (like bubbles), dizziness, numbness and tingling in hands ( the left side going numb) and sometimes feet, not being able to take in a deep breath... awful, scary stuff. Then, my brain assured me that yes, I am going to die, via heart attack or stroke. Not to be. I have a wonderful doctor who checked everything, including ultra sound on my heart, which is strong. The mind is an amazing thing, it is so hard to get control back once it has been taken over by anxiety. Remember, breathe, relax, put something cold on the back of your neck, you are not dying. Take a walk around your house, look out a window, just keep reassuring yourself, stay off medical websites, and do NOT GOOGLE SYMPTOMS!! you will make yourself crazy. Anxiety symptoms are random, and scary, that pounding heart you hear and feel from head to toe, aching wrists and elbows, sore neck and shoulders, tight-pulling in your chest, I still get the "shakes" Get a check up for peace of mind, and then work on getting control over that part of your brain that won't let you be yourself. Hang in there fellow anxiety sufferers.
