I'm new & had some questions :)

I'm actually not sure if I have anxiety, but since I was 11 I experienced uncontrollable sweating, dry mouth, trouble breathing, nauseous all the time, and hot/cold flashes. I joined this in seek of help and opinions. It would be great for someone to clarify my symptoms for me. I would greatly appreciate it. I have struggled with this for years and in public and school it just eats me alive, but I was never 100% sure if it was anxiety.

Hello Oreo,

How old are you now? I ask that because you have felt this way since you were 11. Have your parents taken you to a Gp, a therapist or psychiatrist during that time until now?

Also, have you had a good physical lately, including one by a gyn? You may have anxiety that needs treatment, but better to eliminate anything physically first. Things can be better, let's rule out medical issues, then look to a mental health specialist to work on your anxiety.

Settle yourself down for tonight, practice in your mind how you want your bed time to be, including not waking up scared in the middle of the night.

Please keep us posted on how things are going. We'll be here waiting. :)



I hope this helps you find answers. These do sound much like anxiety does, however you should still seek out medical attention to rule out anything else that may be causing these programs.

Is there anything that calms you down quickly?
