Therapy went really well today and I learnt a lot the tingles we get is our body doesn't need skin for the fight/flight...so it sends signals to the places it needs such as the heart (fast pulse) for oxygen to the brain, stomach (bowls) to get rid of any excess weight we don't need to move quicker, ears as we need them for extra senses to here extra danger. Our symptoms are very real but all powered by the brain in danger mode and as we never get to the danger we have long bouts of anxiety. Another interesting fact 80% of heart attacks are not started in the left side of the body which I found strange it's in the very centre of the chest .... For those of us with left pain this could ease the worry a little. I'm defo going to try and worry less now but guaranteed every middle chest pain ill worry lol
