Hi . I have been suffering from anxiety for the past 4 months I have had all your symptoms before . Anxiety is an aweful thing to have with us . I use to have panic attacks but I don't anymore thank to god . I know how it feels to have this is scary you think your gonna die all the time .at first it was horrible the way I felt dizzy all the time heart racing chest was with pressure a sensation on the arm . Months went by and I notice I started to feel Better . I have realize that you just have to accept this feeling so your mind relaxes a bit . It is scary i know exactly how you feel . If you need to talk to someone here i am feel free believe me talking about it really helps .
I know how you feel. I have had the same issues for the past 9 years. I have been on all the meds and they do work. But I am now trying to figure out a way to deal with the anxiety and off the meds. You took step one, right here. Saying it all out loud, to people who actually know how it feels and don't think you are "crazy". Main thing to remember is you will not die, breath, breath and breath. Stay strong. Seek out a professional to talk to, that is my next step as well, (also kinda scary).
Glad to hear that u r doing well now. Hope me too get better soon

Hey, Emmia- Yan305 is right, that you have to find a way to not fight the symptoms, despite the fact that they are so uncomfortable and distracting. Almost all the treatment for anxiety and panic is paradoxical: opposite of logic. It lives inside you by your resistance to the symptoms. And, of course, some of your symptoms of anxiety may also stem from the actual stressors in your life that you have not yet resolved. So taking a look at those stressors and coming up with coping strategies and support from others is an excellent project for you. If you send me an email, email@example.com, I will send you a copy of my article called "the anxiety disorder game." It will give you a sense of how we get manipulated by anxiety and how we can begin to take control back.
