call someone. call 111. if you think you need to, call 999.

try to calm yourself by slowing your breathing and try to quiet your mind.

come back on tomorrow and let us know how you are.

Yep this is me all over I worry so much I have something wrong no one knows about it takes over my everyday some days better then others. I am quite good when I am around others family friends doing things I like gym eating out but that just takes my mind off if for a bit I don't know how to get rid of this worry I was the kinda person that said I don't really want to do meds but if it's going to help me stop really feeling like this I might look at it. I even put off what I like doing and that's so not me. Sitting googling what could be wrong with me is driving me insane : (

I dont be meds cause what we're really having is anxiety fear of dying. And meds wont stop fear. I do know that accepting these sensations will make them go away. But not very easy cause it feels too real.

Wow we are so the same. my friend gave me a pill that she said try it will relax you and not make you stress but can't even take that I am worried it will do something to me. it's the worst feeling isn't it. I feel like I am getting worse. I only really started getting like this after having kids. I do snap myself out of it but then I am back with in a few days thinking about the next thing. Hope things look up for you

Hi

Just wanted to say that even when friends mean well it is never advisable to take any pills that have not been prescribed for you or even herbal things that help with anxiety you should always check with your doctor

I also have a meds fear so do understand how you feel about meds in general , even though they can help many but always with the guidance of your GP

Love

hi rushane, yes high anxiety can make you feel as tho you are dying, my o/h was watching a show last night about finding long lost people, and even this set off her anxiety, no sleep last night which also increases your anxiety, eventually she had to take a diazapam which had been prescribed by her doc, which has helped, i think you have to try and occupy your mind , maybe having a walk, or other light exercise ,or even a relaxing cd, which i have just ordered for her, good luck & take care love jasper xx
