It sounds like anxiety to me. I had a feeling of a lump in my throat once and asked the doctor he said it was anxiety. Anxiety is a nasty creature. Hang in there

Anxiety I horrendous. It can cause all sorts of symptoms and make you feel like you are seriously ill. Still make an appointment with a doctor but it sounds like anxiety. At the moment I am really struggling. I haven't been dressed or left the house in 5 weeks. I feel dizzy and shaky all the time and the sick feeling is the worst. I find even when u don't feel ill it is really hard to swallow anything. The trick I'm told is to distract yourself, try keep things as normal as possible though I have failed at that it is worth a try. Speak to a doctor they may be able to help with short term medication or give you techniques to help. It does pass eventually and you will feel normal again. That's what I keep telling myself and it's hard but I know it's true

Hi Amy,

yes, its All anxiety. I get all of those weird feelings too. Breathe let the feelings happen, it will pass. Try seeing a psychiatrist. Exercise is good. Blessings to you!

Thankyou very much everyone xxx
