Try some yoga before you go to bed, the PM kind. You can find tons of them on youtube. If that doesnt help you can try going for a walk or exersizing, different things help different people.

Pacing helps me and so does talking,, but at work I go into like a manic state and I wont shut up and I'll just go on and on and on lol.

But I recommend trying the night time yoga.I like to do it right after I shower and i'm in my pjs (shorts, t shirt.) Sometimes I do it before my shower in yoga clothes.

I have been experiencing anxiety foe about 10 years. I have never been able to find anyone that feels like I do. When I read your symptoms it sounds just like me. I have that electric feeling that goes through my body. My skin feels hot and weird. It feels like electritricy going through my chest. Its very scary. I lay down and still feel awful.
